Arabofolies du 18 au 27 octobre 2019
Arabofolies du 18 au 27 octobre 2019 
Arabofoliesfestival musical, des arts et des idées se décline trois fois par an : au printemps, au début de l’été et à l’automne. Autour d’un fil thématique commun, il fait vivre les liens existants entre les diverses disciplines et la cohésion qui en découle. Après Transmissions, en juin dernier, cette 3ème édition se décline autour des « Initiations ». Il y a bien sûr l'initiation toute spirituelle des soufis, et celle des artistes qui empruntent à leur tradition et la mêlent avec les sons du jazz. Mais à l'IMA, l'initiation prend aussi des couleurs écologiques et sociales, politiques et même cinématographiques et littéraires…

CONFERENCES

1.    Conference: “Eastern Questions: New Perspectives on British Orientalism”, Watts Gallery and Royal Holloway, University of London, 16-17 October 2019

This interdisciplinary symposium, a collaboration between Watts Gallery Artists' Village (WG-AV) and Royal Holloway (University of London), aims to explore new perspectives on the intersection between Orientalism and visual culture across the nineteenth century. This two-day conference coincides with John Frederick Lewis: Facing Fame, the latest exhibition at WG-AV.


_____________________________________


2.    Workshop: "Arabic Pasts: Histories and Historiographies", Aga Khan Centre, London, 17-19 October 2019

This annual exploratory and informal workshop offers the opportunity to reflect on methodologies, research agendas, and case studies for investigating history writing in Arabic in the Middle East and North Africa in any period from the seventh century to the present.


_____________________________________


3.    3rd Annual "International Graduate Conference in Late Antique, Islamic and Byzantine Studies (500-1500 CE.)", University of Edinburgh, 22-23 November 2019

This conference has chosen to focus on inertia – how history, material culture, ideas and communities can be seen to maintain a stayed course or deviate if a significant force is exerted upon it. Inertia, a concept that has yet to be applied to mainstream Late Antique studies, introduces perspectives and frameworks that permit new approaches to traditional processes.


_____________________________________


4.    Conference: “Archaeological Perspectives on Conversion to Islam and Islamisation in Africa”, Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies, University of Exeter, 17-18 December 2019

Although it is fully acknowledged that conversion to Islam and Islamisation processes are not universal, but subject to significant variation and complexity, this conference has considerable value for the paradigmatic structure of our archaeological understanding of becoming Muslim in sub-Saharan Africa. This conference will explore these issues through a comparative perspective, and discuss and summarise the ‘state of the art’.


_____________________________________


5.    7th Annual Workshop of New Directions in Palestine Studies: “Who Owns Palestine?”, Brown University, 6-7 March 2020

Etc.

Deadline for abstracts: 4 November 2019.

The objectives of this meeting are: To question why historians of radical movements have forgotten about this geographical area; to reconstruct the history of individual or collective, anti-authoritarian and anarchist internationalist experiences in this region; to adopt a transnational perspective that considers travel, contacts and exchanges between individuals and groups at the local, regional and international levels; etc. Interventions will be in French and English.

Deadline for abstracts: 30 November 2019.
