Abstract

The book is the fruit of five years of on-site research on citizenship in the Arab world. It takes a broader legal perspective to the multifaceted reality of nationality and citizenship. The methodology employed builds on the interdisciplinary approach of comparative legal studies, and brings in theories, concepts and insights from anthropology, political science, Arab and Islamic studies, linguistics and sociology. The work relies on a broad range of Western and Arab references, and all sources and documents were directly accessed in their original languages; this is particularly relevant for Arab legislation (all in-text reference has been translated by the author, and the original has been inserted using scientific transliteration).

Abstract

In 2003-2006, Patricia Henderson lived in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal where she recorded the experiences of people living with HIV/AIDS. In this illuminating study, she recounts the concerns of rural people and explores local repertoires through which illness was folded into everyday life. The book spans a period when antiretroviral medication was not available, and moves on to a time when the treatment became accessible. Hope gradually became manifest in the recovery of a number of people through antiretroviral therapies and 'the return' of bodies they could recognise as their own. This research implies that protracted interaction with people over time, offers insights into the unfolding textures of everyday life, in particular in its focus on suffering, social and structural inequality, illness, violence, mourning, sensibility, care and intimacy.

Abstract

En apparence, l’anthropologie de la nature est une sorte d’oxymore puisque, depuis plusieurs siècles en Occident, la nature se caractérise par l’absence de l’homme, et l’homme par ce qu’il a su surmonter de naturel en lui. Mais la nature n’existe pas comme une sphère de réalités autonomes pour tous les peuples. En postulant une distribution universelle des humains et des non-humains dans deux domaines ontologiques séparés, nous sommes bien mal armés pour analyser tous ces systèmes d’objectiva...

Architecte d'une œuvre plurielle, le recueil est de toutes nos lectures. Puzzle ou série, cycle ou mélange, il se feuillette, se reprend, se quadrille ou se picore. Mais qu'est-ce donc qu'un recueil ?

Abstract

Globalisation, migration and integration have shaken up identity processes and identity dynamics as never before. But in a post-colonial, multi-ethnic Europe, what is identity? How is it constructed? Identity Processes and Dynamics in Multi-Ethnic Europe endeavours to answer these questions and more. Eleven of the thirteen chapters present empirical case studies from the Basque Country, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Portugal - thus resulting in one of the first international volumes to highlight Portugal's diverse and complex migration flows. Transnationalism also takes centre stage in several contributions that survey various types of informal and formal networks in local communities and across national borders. Via American studies, anthropology, cultural studies, ethnology, history, social psychology and sociology, the authors come from an array of disciplines as dynamic as the continent about which they write.

Abstract

Cet ouvrage recoupe les thématiques de la mémoire juive, de l’histoire et de l’anthropologie des sociétés andines, du marranisme ibéro-américain. Il montre la fécondité du dialogue entre l’histoire et l’anthropologie, proposition de recherche croisée qui a renouvelé depuis 1970 la connaissance que nous avons des sociétés humaines et modifié le regard que nous portons sur les mondes européens et non européens.

Abstract

Northeast Migrants in Delhi: Race, Refuge and Retail is an ethnographic study of migrants from India's north-east border region living and working in Delhi, the nation's capital. Northeast India borders China, the Himalayas, and Southeast Asia. Despite burgeoning interest in the region, little attention is given to the thousands of migrants leaving the region for Indian cities for refuge, work, and study. The stories of Northeast migrants reveal an everyday Northeast India rarely captured elsewhere and offer an alternative view of contemporary India. Northeast migrants covet the employment opportunities created by India's embrace of globalization; shopping malls, restaurants, and call centres. Yet Northeast migrants also experience high levels of racism, harassment, and violence. Far from simply victims of the city, Northeast migrants have created their own 'map' of Delhi, enabling a sense of belonging, albeit an uneasy one. Interdisciplinary in nature, this book will appeal to scholars of anthropology, urban studies, geography, migration, and Asian Studies.

Abstract

L’anthropologie, l’ethnologie et la psychologie des peuples connaissent un spectaculaire essor dans le Berlin de la seconde moitié du xixe siècle. L’émergence de ces disciplines s’inscrit dans le cadre de l’expansion coloniale et dans le paysage scientifique de la ville, où la référence humaniste aux frères Humboldt peine à s’adapter au contexte de la fin du xixe siècle. Les différentes contributions rassemblées mettent toutefois en évidence dans les milieux scientifiques allemands la volonté...

Abstract

Basé sur une série de cours initialement adressés aux travailleurs sociaux en formation, le livre alimente la culture professionnelle des étudiants des métiers de la relation et de l'éducation. On y aborde une suite de thèmes contribuant à composer une formation fondamentale, et donc humaniste. D'où émergent nos conceptions éthiques ? Qu'est-ce que le respect et la communication intersubjective ? Quels rôles attribuer au langage ? Comment comprendre l'oxymore « accompagnement éducatif » ? Po...
