Détails: While the Mediterranean is often considered a distinct, unified space, recent scholarship on the early modern history of the sea has suggested that this perspective is essentially a Western one, devised from the vantage point of imperial power that historically patrolled the region’s seas and controlled its ports. By contrast, for the peoples of its southern shores, the Mediterranean was polymorphous, shifting with the economic and seafaring exigencies of the moment. Nonetheless, by the nineteenth century the idea of a monolithic Mediterranean had either been absorbed by or imposed on the populations of the region. In French Mediterraneans editors Patricia M. E. Lorcin and Todd Shepard offer a collection of scholarship that reveals the important French element in the nineteenth- and twentieth-century creation of the singular Mediterranean. These essays provide a critical study of space and movement through new approaches to think about the maps, migrations, and margins of the sea in the French imperial and transnational context. By reconceptualizing the Mediterranean, this volume illuminates the diversity of connections between places and polities that rarely fit models of nation-state allegiances or preordained geographies.

Détails: Subaltern studies, the study of non-elite or underrepresented people, have revolutionized the writing of Middle Eastern history. Subversives and Mavericks in the Muslim Mediterranean represents the next step in this transformation. The book explores the lives of eleven nonconformists who became agents of political and social change, actively organizing new forms of resistance—against either colonial European regimes or the traditional societies in which they lived—that disrupted the status quo, in some cases, with dramatic results. These case studies highlight cross-border connections in the Mediterranean world, exploring how these channels were navigated. Chapters in the book examine the lives of subversives and mavericks, such as Tawhida ben Shaykh, the first Arab woman to receive a medical degree; Mokhtar al-Ayari, a radical Tunisian labor leader; Nazli Hanem, Kmar Bayya, and Khiriya bin Ayyad, three aristocractic women who resisted the patriarchal structures of their societies by organizing and participating in intellectual salons for men and women and advocating social reform; Qaid Najim al-Akhsassi, an ex-slave and military officer, who fought against French and Spanish colonial expansion; and Boubeker al-Ghandjawi, a nearly illiterate trader who succeeded, though his diverse connections, in establishing important relations between the Moroccan sultan and the representative of the British government. Although based on individual and local perspectives, Subversives and Mavericks in the Muslim Mediterranean reveals new and unrecognized trans-local connections across the Muslim world, illuminating our understanding of these societies beyond narrow elite circles.

Détails: Cet ouvrage est le premier à traiter l’ensemble de la production cinématographique berbère. Des histoires qui nous viennent des mythes, des récits de l’histoire contemporaine, des personnages dramatiques ou comiques, qui participent à la représentation et à l’auto-perception d’être « Imazighen/Berbères », sont présentés et analysés sous la plume de spécialistes et de jeunes chercheurs en études berbères. L’apparition des premiers films amazighs (berbères) a été tardive du fait de la méconnaissance du berbère par les États nationaux au Maghreb jusqu’aux années 1990. Cependant, des réalisateurs ont eu le courage de persévérer et, depuis quelques années, des films en langue amazighe (berbère) jouissent d’une reconnaissance internationale, comme pour La Maison jaune / Axxam awragh (2007) d’Amor Hakkar et Adiós Carmen (2013) de Mohamed Amin Benamraoui, tous deux primés respectivement au Festival international du film de Locarno (2007) et au Festival international du cinéma méditerranéen de Montpellier (2014). Les films primés participent de l’une des deux formes d’expression filmique en amazigh : les longs-métrages « grand écran ». La seconde modalité est celle des « films vidéo » en format VHS et VCD qui, bien que représentant une production très vivace de culture populaire, sont souvent maltraités par la critique journalistique. Les contributions de cet ouvrage explorent les films amazighs dans une perspective interdisciplinaire en fournissant au public des clés de lecture sur les recherches esthétiques et la construction identitaire qui sont au centre de la narration filmique, ainsi que sur les aspects sociologiques et économiques de la production. La question centrale posée est la suivante : « Peut-on parler de cinéma amazigh ? ». Cet ouvrage ouvre le débat.

Détails: Cette anthologie de contes issus de l'immigration maghrébine présente la particularité de sensibiliser à de nouvelles pratiques du conte en situation interculturelle. Elle donne à voir l'émergence d'un répertoire qui puise sa dynamique non seulement dans les mouvances de la parole conteuse, mais aussi dans le jeu des ressemblances et des différences suscité par la rencontre des cultures. La variation, ainsi révélée, donne matière au comparatisme et ouvre un champ à la réflexion sur l'articulation entre l'oralité et l'écriture. Cet ouvrage se propose de mettre à l'essai une méthodologie pour une transposition créatrice du récit oral qui, tout en sauvegardant l'authenticité du style oral et la singularité de chaque conteuse, communique au lecteur le plaisir des variantes.

Détails: La vache des orphelins est sans aucun doute le conte le plus connu chez les Kabyles. L'auteur en a recensé treize versions. Il introduit ce conte par une analyse pointue, entre psychologie et philosophie, développant les thèmes abordés dans ce texte : la prise de décision des femmes, la marâtre "ogresse", les rapports entre le temps et le moment de la rencontre, la critique sociale faite aux hommes qui se remarient sitôt leur femme décédée, l'importance de l'ouverture vers l'autre. La langue kabyle comporte une philosophie implicite. Grand défenseur de cette langue, l'auteur plaide aussi en faveur du conte, une des clés essentielles de l'éducation des enfants.

Détails: Quand le mari arriva avec ses invités, ils mangèrent tous. Personne ne se soucia de l'absence de Ziri. Seule Aïcha refusait de manger et ramassait les os de son frère à mesure que les autres les jetaient par terre. Elle les enterra dans le jardin derrière la maison. Quand le printemps vint, un genévrier poussa à l'endroit où Aïcha avait enterré les os. Tous les jours, le genévrier se mettait à chanter : "Ma mère m'a égorgé, mon père m'a mangé, Aïcha a ramassé mes os". En entendant l'arbre chanter ainsi, la mère prit peur ; elle se saisit d'une hache et l'abattit, mais les racines continuaient de chanter.

Générée dans le multiple des langues et des croyances, elle a créé les modalités et les signes de ce que pourrait être, aujourd'hui comme hier en Algérie, une activité efficiente de la mémoire redoublant la création littéraire. Paradoxalement, et l'oeuvre de ce trio familial en témoigne dans sa diversité, c'est la privation, l'humiliation et l'exil qui soufflent aux créateurs cette mémoire, incertaine mais puissante, qui donne nt forme à leur poésie orale ou écrite, structurent leurs pensées et leurs récits, animent leurs échanges avec les autres.

Détails: A classic of Canadian literature by the great Quebecoise writer, Kamouraska is based on a real nineteenth-century love-triangle in rural Quebec. It paints a poetic and terrifying tableau of the life of Elisabeth d'Aulnieres: her marriage to Antoine Tassy, squire of Kamouraska; his violent murder; and her passion for George Nelson, an American doctor. Passionate and evocative, Kamouraska is the timeless story of one woman's destructive commitment to an ideal love. Translated into seven languages, Kamouraska won the Paris book prize and was made into a landmark feature film by Claude Jutra. This edition features a brilliant new introduction by Noah Richler.

Détails: Bourdieu and Literature is a wide-ranging, rigorous and accessible introduction to the relationship between Pierre Bourdieu's work and literary studies. It provides a comprehensive overview and critical assessment of his contributions to literary theory and his thinking about authors and literary works. One of the foremost French intellectuals of the post-war era, Bourdieu has become a standard point of reference in the fields of anthropology, linguistics, art history, cultural studies, politics, and sociology, but his longstanding interest in literature has often been overlooked. This study explores the impact of literature on Bourdieu's intellectual itinerary, and how his literary understanding intersected with his sociological theory and thinking about cultural policy. This is the first full-length study of Bourdieu's work on literature in English, and it provides an invaluable resource for students and scholars of literary studies, cultural theory and sociology.

Détails: A comprehensive handbook of more than 1,000 magical words, phrases, symbols, and secret alphabets • Explains the origins, derivatives, and practical usage of each word, phrase, and spell as well as how they can be combined for custom spells • Based on the magical traditions of Europe, Greece, and Egypt and recently discovered one-of-a-kind grimoires from Scandinavia, France, and Germany • Includes an in-depth exploration of secret magical alphabets, including those based on Hebrew letters, Kabbalistic symbols, astrological signs, and runes From Abracadabra to the now famous spells of the Harry Potter series, magic words are no longer confined to the practices of pagans, alchemists, witches, and occultists. They have become part of the popular imagination of the Western world. Passed down from ancient Babylon, Egypt, and Greece, these words and the rituals surrounding them have survived through the millennia because they work. And as scholar Claude Lecouteux reveals, often the more impenetrable they seem, the more effective they are. Analyzing more than 7,000 spells from the magical traditions of Europe as well as the magical papyri of the Greeks and recently discovered one-of-a-kind grimoires from Scandinavia, France, and Germany, Lecouteux has compiled a comprehensive dictionary of ancient magic words, phrases, and spells along with an in-depth exploration--the first in English--of secret magical alphabets, including those based on Hebrew letters, Kabbalistic symbols, astrological signs, and runes. Drawing upon thousands of medieval accounts and famous manuscripts such as the Heptameron of Peter Abano, the author examines the origins of each word or spell, offering detailed instructions on their successful use, whether for protection, love, wealth, or healing. He charts their evolution and derivations through the centuries, showing, for example, how spells that were once intended to put out fires evolved to protect people from witchcraft. He reveals the inherent versatility of magic words and how each sorcerer or witch had a set of stock phrases they would combine to build a custom spell for the magical need at hand. Presenting a wealth of material on magical words, signs, and charms, both common and obscure, Lecouteux also explores the magical words and spells of ancient Scandinavia, the Hispano-Arabic magic of Spain before the Reconquista, the traditions passed down from ancient Egypt, and those that have stayed in use until the present day.

Détails: The first book in a series from #1 internationally bestselling author Lucinda Riley, author of The Midnight Rose—hailed as “an extraordinary story [and] a complex, deeply engaging tale filled with fascinating characters” (Library Journal). Maia D’Apliese and her five sisters gather together at their childhood home, “Atlantis”—a fabulous, secluded castle situated on the shores of Lake Geneva—having been told that their beloved father, who adopted them all as babies, has died. Each sister is handed a tantalizing clue to her true heritage—a clue that takes Maia across the world to a crumbling mansion in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Once there, she begins to put together the pieces of her story. Eighty years earlier in the Rio of the 1920s, Izabela Bonifacio’s father has aspirations for his daughter to marry into the aristocracy. Meanwhile, architect Heitor da Silva Costa is devising plans for an enormous statue, to be called Christ the Redeemer, and will soon travel to Paris to find the right sculptor to complete his vision. Izabela—passionate and longing to see the world—convinces her father to allow her to accompany him and his family to Europe before she is married. There, at Paul Landowski’s studio and in the heady, vibrant cafes of Montparnasse, she meets ambitious young sculptor Laurent Brouilly, and knows at once that her life will never be the same again. In this sweeping, epic tale of love and loss—the first in a unique, spellbinding series—Lucinda Riley showcases her storytelling talents like never before.

Détails: A New York Times Notable Book of 2015 “A tour-de-force reimagining of Camus’s The Stranger, from the point of view of the mute Arab victims.” —The New Yorker He was the brother of “the Arab” killed by the infamous Meursault, the antihero of Camus’s classic novel. Seventy years after that event, Harun, who has lived since childhood in the shadow of his sibling’s memory, refuses to let him remain anonymous: he gives his brother a story and a name—Musa—and describes the events that led to Musa’s casual murder on a dazzlingly sunny beach. In a bar in Oran, night after night, he ruminates on his solitude, on his broken heart, on his anger with men desperate for a god, and on his disarray when faced with a country that has so disappointed him. A stranger among his own people, he wants to be granted, finally, the right to die. The Stranger is of course central to Daoud’s story, in which he both endorses and criticizes one of the most famous novels in the world. A worthy complement to its great predecessor, The Meursault Investigation is not only a profound meditation on Arab identity and the disastrous effects of colonialism in Algeria, but also a stunning work of literature in its own right, told in a unique and affecting voice.

Détails: As evidence emerged of the genocide in Rwanda in 1994, the outside world reeled in shock. What could have motivated these individual and collective acts of evil? In 1998, Véronique Tadjo traveled to Rwanda to try to find out. She started with the premise that what happened in Rwanda concerns us all: “We need to understand. Our humanity is in peril.” The Shadow of Imana is a reminder that humankind the world over is capable of genocide. Records of what the author saw—sites of massacres, corpses, weapons dumps—are combined with personal stories of traumatized returnees, bereaved survivors, rape victims, orphans, lawyers faced with the impossible task of doing justice, prisoners. But Tadjo’s story goes beyond mere reportage of death and cruelty. Her poetically wrought account incorporates traditional tales, explores the spiritual legacy of the genocide, and uncovers a healing vitality as well as a commitment to forgiveness. Véronique Tadjo was born in Paris and grew up in Côte d’Ivoire. The Shadow of Imana has been translated from the French by Véronique Wakerley.
