Séminaire EPHE-PSL : Introduction à la codicologie arabe (6-10 mars 2023)

Le cours intensif « Introduction à la codicologie arabe » à l’EPHE (6 ECTS) est consacré à l’étude des caractéristiques matérielles du livre manuscrit en caractères arabes depuis les débuts de l’islam jusqu’à l’époque contemporaine.

Il est une invitation à s’éloigner de l’analyse du texte pour prendre en compte l’histoire de l’objet-livre dans son contexte spécifique de production et transmission. L’idée principale est d’apprendre à regarder, à lire, et à traiter les manuscrits d’une autre façon, avec d’autres yeux.

La nature de ce cours est éminemment pratique : travailler en bibliothèque quatre après-midis, de lundi à jeudi, avec des manuscrits originaux : les deux premiers jours à la BULAC – Bibliothèque universitaire des langues et civilisations, et les deux suivants à la BnF – Bibliothèque nationale de France. Une connaissance de la langue arabe est souhaitable, mais pas obligatoire.

Du 6 au 10 mars 2023, de 9h à 12h et de 14h à 17h, en Sorbonne et dans des bibliothèques parisiennes. Inscription requise à l’avance auprès de nuria.decastilla@ephe.sorbonne.fr (au plus tard le 10 février 2023).

Prof. Jajat Burhanuddin and Mahmood Kooria are organizing an international conference at UIN Jakarta in Indonesia on 28-29 November 2022 on Islamic connections between India and Indonesia across the Indian Ocean world.

MAMLUK SYMPOSIUM II : SCIENCE, THOUGHT, ART, AND INSTITUTIONS

1–2 JUNE 2023

İslam Tetkikleri Enstitüsü on Twitter: "The Mamluk Symposium II, which is  organized by the Institute of Islamic Studies, will be held in Istanbul on  1–2 June 2023. We welcome abstract submissions until

Organized by Istanbul University, İslam Tetkikleri Enstitüsü, İslami İlimler Araştırma Vakfı (İSAV) 

The era of Mamluk rule was a time of intellectual and artistic flourishing. From 1250 to 1517, the Mamluk elite established madrasas, dervish lodges, hospitals, and observatories across the lands they ruled in Egypt, Syria, and the Hijaz, including in the great cities of Cairo, Damascus, Mecca, Medina, Jerusalem, and Aleppo. Scholars, scientists, thinkers, artisans, and Sufis from all over the Muslim world relocated to the Mamluk realm, further nourishing its intellectual and cultural dynamism. Meanwhile, pilgrims, students, and other visitors to Mamluk lands brought what they learned there back to their homes, thereby helping to spread Mamluk accomplishments in various fields to other parts of the Muslim world, including both newer territories like Anatolia and the Balkans as well as older centers of learning, trade, and governance like the Maghreb, Andalusia, Iran, Transoxiana, and India.

Prédire, comprendre et influer sur les forces cachées régissant le monde sont des préoccupations constantes en contexte islamique. Cet intérêt porté aux forces occultes a conduit à la production d’une large gamme d’objets employant à la fois une multitude d’héritages pré-islamiques, ainsi que le texte coranique. Cette production a souvent eu un une visée particulière dans les contextes de conflits militaires, afin de s’assurer la victoire ou de prévenir une mort subite lors des combats.

Call for Paper – Archaeology, Antiquity, and the Making of the Modern Middle East: Global Histories 1800–1939, 25–26 May, 2023, University of Warwick, Global History and Culture Centre (deadline : 20 June, 2022)

CALL FOR PAPERS: Archaeology, Antiquity, and the Making of the Modern Middle East: Global Histories 1800–1939, 25–26 May, 2023, University of Warwick, Global History and Culture Centre

This conference will explore the role played by discoveries and debates about the ancient past in the development of ideas about the Middle East in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. What competing imperial, national, and transnational narratives about the present and future of this geopolitically crucial region were fed by archaeology, philology, and history? How were these emergent disciplines themselves forged through Middle Eastern contexts they purported to study? How were temporalities of modernity and progress constructed in relation to the ruptures, continuities and heuristic challenges suggested by the excavation and exegesis of traces of ancient civilisations? Were there overlaps between how this region was simultaneously transformed by the construction of new transportation networks, the unearthing of oil in commercial qualities, transforming its present and future, and archaeological projects which dug up new dimensions to its past? How did the return of the remains of the past assist Western and Eastern empires, and new Middle Eastern countries in understanding their own national destinies?

La dynastie des Fatimides (969-1171) est au pouvoir en Égypte au moment de la réalisation de cet objet religieux. Revendiquant ses liens avec la famille du Prophète, en tant que descendants d’Ali son gendre et cousin, les Fatimides placent le chiisme au cœur de leur politique en opposition au sunnisme du califat abbasside. D’abord implantés au Maghreb et en Ifriqiya (Afrique du Nord actuelle), ils conquièrent le Caire (al-Qahira) en 969 et en font leur capitale. A l’acmé de leur pouvoir, leur territoire couvre le Maghreb et l’Ifriqiya, la Sicile, la Syrie et le Hijaz (péninsule arabique).

La mosquée de Rüstem Paşa : un joyau discret au cœur d’Istanbul

Le 29 mai 1453, la ville d’Istanbul, alors nommée Constantinople, tombe aux mains des Ottomans. Cette dynastie, qui tire son nom de son fondateur Osman, s’affirme au sein d’une principauté d’Anatolie à la fin du XIIIème siècle. Elle étend son empire jusqu’au XVIème siècle, depuis les Balkans jusqu’au Maghreb, avant de se désagréger progressivement à partir du XVIIème siècle, pour laisser place, au lendemain de la Première Guerre mondiale, à la République de Turquie. Si l’empire des Ottomans regroupe des populations fort diverses, il est néanmoins régi par une structure gouvernementale et administrative efficace. L’organisation très centralisée de l’empire trouve d’ailleurs un écho dans l’ensemble de la création artistique. Un corps hiérarchisé, dirigé par l’architecte en chef de l’empire, encadre ainsi les chantiers de construction des monuments publics et religieux, favorisant le développement d’un canon artistique. Constantinople, nouvelle capitale après Bursa et Edirne, est profondément modifié sous les Ottomans : les citernes datant de l’Antiquité sont restaurées, le palais de Topkapı voit le jour tandis que sont édifiées de nombreuses mosquées.

Postdoc – North African Sufi Islamic Sources | Centre for History Sciences Po

Deadline: May 15, 2022

  • Actualité Sciences PoActualité Sciences Po

The European Research Council project “SlaveVoices” seeks a Postdoctoral researcher in the history of modern North Africa and the Mediterranean with an interest in the history of slavery and in North African Sufi Islamic sources (hagiographies and biographies of saints) from the mid-18th century to the 1930s.

Funded by the European Research Council, “SlaveVoices” aims at renewing our approach to the end of slavery by collecting and studying the testimonies of North African, West African and European slaves and their descendants written in Arabic, Ottoman Turkish and other European and African languages from the mid-18th century to the 1930s.
Researchers involved in the project “SlaveVoices” explore the reshaping of the connections that groups of slaves built up within North African societies and between this part of the Muslim world and other adjoining societies in Africa, Asia and Europe in the abolition era.

The successful applicant will start working on the project by September 2022 for one year followed by a renewal for another year upon positive evaluation.
The project is based at Sciences-Po Paris, and directed by Prof. M. Oualdi who specializes in early modern and modern history of North Africa.
