Abstract

Ces trente dernières années, de nombreuses études ont été consacrées au conflit israélo-arabe et à la question palestinienne. Cependant, la plupart des auteurs n'ont prêté attention qu'aux seuls aspects militaires et diplomaticopolitiques. Le Centre d'Études et de Recherches sur le Moyen-Orient Contemporain dont la mission est d'étudier les espaces, les sociétés et les États de l'Orient arabe a rompu avec cette tendance en publiant Palestine, Palestiniens. Territoire national, espaces communa...

Abstract

The spread of Catholicism among the local Christian population in the Syro-Palestinian region has attracted the attention of many scholars. Previous research has described how missionaries’ work was facilitated by the patronage of local notables, by the establishment of personal ties with locals, and more generally by a wide range of daily interactions, such as providing medical assistance. 1 In this framework, academic attention has mostly focused on the cities, consistent with the fact that missions were far more numerous in urban areas. An important exception is a pioneering work by Bernard Heyberger. This early study reconstructs how, departing from their houses in cities such as Sayda and Tripoli, Jesuits and Capuchins visited rural villages in Galilee and Lebanon. Inspired by the model of rural missions developed in Europe during the Catholic Reformation, their activities hinged on confession and preaching. In line with the regional framework, missionaries also carefully built ties with locals and offered their medical competencies, which greatly helped their cause. 2 Although the importance of interactions with the locals in the spread of Catholicism in the Middle East has been widely acknowledged, many questions about the nature of these interactions still remain unanswered: How did the administrative and economic system that characterized rural and semi-rural spaces influence missionaries’ interactions with the surrounding areas? What was the relationship between missionaries’ entanglement with local society and their evangelizing activities? And, finally, to what extent did these interactions turn the missionaries into “localized” protagonists?

Abstract

Far from integration into the Israeli incorporation regime, Palestinians inside the state are today placed in a paradoxical situation where, as Arab citizens of a Jewish state, they are both inside and outside, host and guest, citizen and stateless. Through the paradigm of stateless citizenship, Shourideh C. Molavi examines the dynamics of exclusion of Palestinian citizens and analytically frames the mechanisms through which their statelessness is maintained. With this she centres our analytical gaze on the paradox that it is through the actual provision of Israeli citizenship that Palestinians are deemed stateless. Molavi critically engages with the liberal variant of Zionist thought, and deconstructs discourse around minority rights and liberal citizenship in the context of Israel's racialized ideological and political makeup.

Abstract

Elias Khoury est l'un des plus grands romanciers arabes contemporains. Journaliste chevronné, il a dirigé la page culturelle des deux plus prestigieux quotidiens libanais, As-Safir et An-Nahar. Il est actuellement rédacteur en chef de la Revue d'études palestiniennes. Écrivain engagé, confronté aux grandes déceptions idéologiques de l'ère postrévolutionnaire, Khoury continue son action à la fois impossible et nécessaire en l'inscrivant dans un horizon littéraire. Cet ouvrage interroge son œuvre romanesque, largement traduite. Il examine les dynamiques et les ambivalences qui la tiraillent au regard des problématiques du monde contemporain : Quelles perspectives littéraires pour l'engagement ? Quelles formes la contre-narration historique prend-elle ? L'histoire ouverte à la façon des Mille et Une Nuits s'accommode-t-elle d'une parole engagée ? Comment cette œuvre magistrale déconstruit- elle tout un héritage religieux, culturel et sociopolitique ? Dans quelle perspective serait-elle postmoderne ? Ce livre cherche à comprendre les spécificités de cette œuvre originale et fondatrice et à problématiser le « projet » de l'auteur, inscrit au sein des nouveaux rapports entre littérature et champ politique.

Abstract

Archaeological discoveries in Jerusalem capture worldwide attention in various media outlets. The continuing quest to discover the city’s physical remains is not simply an attempt to define Israel’s past or determine its historical legacy. In the context of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it is also an attempt to legitimate—or undercut—national claims to sovereignty. Bridging the ever-widening gap between popular coverage and specialized literature, Finding Jerusalem provides a comprehensive tour of the politics of archaeology in the city. Through a wide-ranging discussion of the material evidence, Katharina Galor illuminates the complex legal contexts and ethical precepts that underlie archaeological activity and the discourse of “cultural heritage” in Jerusalem. This book addresses the pressing need to disentangle historical documentation from the religious aspirations, social ambitions, and political commitments that shape its interpretation.

Abstract

This volume presents a collection of articles centring on the language of the Mishnah and the Talmud – the most important Jewish texts (after the Bible), which were compiled in Palestine and Babylonia in the latter centuries of Late Antiquity. Despite the fact that Rabbinic Hebrew has been the subject of growing academic interest across the past century, very little scholarship has been written on it in English. Studies in Rabbinic Hebrew addresses this lacuna, with eight lucid but technically rigorous articles written in English by a range of experienced scholars, focusing on various aspects of Rabbinic Hebrew: its phonology, morphology, syntax, pragmatics and lexicon. This volume is essential reading for students and scholars of Rabbinic studies alike, and constitutes the second in a new series, Studies in Semitic Languages and Cultures, in collaboration with the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Cambridge.

Abstract

Plus de cinquante ans après leur arrivée au Liban, la moitié des réfugiés palestiniens vivent toujours dans des camps. Ils forment l’une des communautés de la diaspora dont l’avenir est le plus problématique. À la fois acteurs et victimes des guerres qui ont déchiré le Liban de 1975 à 1990, ils ont subi des exodes internes successifs qui se sont soldés, pour près de 100 000 d’entre eux, par un nouvel exil toujours plus lointain. Mais, au-delà des fractures politiques et des effets de la guerr...
