Based on considerations of revolutionary theories and the concepts of media/news framing we will strive to analyze and discuss two talkshows (al-Jazeera & al-‘Arabiyya) to the effect of how different channels with differing political agendas (re-)present, (re-)construct and construe the political upheavals in the MENA region in distinctive ways.

6. Colloquium:  "Literature of Inebriation / Inebriation by Literature", INALCO - CERMOM, Paris, 21 June 2013

Inebriation (sukr) is the state of psychological exaltation that can trigger indifference towards morality, as well as a temporary loss of inhibition and self-control (ḥilm). The effects of intoxicants have often been associated with ecstasy and suspension of reality, during which the subject discovers sensations never felt in normal conditions of sobriety (ṣaḥw). Thus, he can open for himself a space of intellectual freedom and imagination, similar to that of dreams and madness. Therefore, in the poetic experience, the simple reading or the repetition of some poems or texts can provoke a state or a succession of states similar to sukr. The aim of this colloquium is to examine some aspects of inebriation in and by literature in the classical and post- classical periods in the Arab world and beyond.

Deadline: 17 February 2013. Info: Information
