Abstract

Ce dossier a pour objectif de donner une image des communautés albanaises et d’origine albanaise en Turquie et plus particulièrement à Istanbul : leur origine, leur fonctionnement et leurs relations avec les autres communautés albanaises dans les Balkans (Albanie, ex­ Yougoslavie, Grèce), dans le contexte géopolitique des années 1990. Ce contexte est bien sûr marqué à la fois par les crises successives qui ont marqué la décomposition de la Yougoslavie, dont la dernière, dans la province du K...

Abstract

À l’heure où la Turquie et l’Union Européenne entament les négociations d’adhésion, après quatre décennies de relations parfois houleuses, l’existence d’une population européenne d’origine turque nombreuse, de trois à quatre millions de ressortissants turcs ou d’Européens originaires de Turquie, a permis l’émergence de relations denses et quotidiennes entre les deux espaces géographiques. Il n’est pas ici directement question de l’intégration des immigrés, mais de l’ensemble des relations phy...

Abstract

"This book outlines the ways sport helps to create transnational social fields that interconnect migrants dispersed across a region known as the Black Atlantic: Britain, North America and the Caribbean. Many Caribbean men's stories about their experiences migrating to Canada, settling in Toronto's urban and suburban neighbourhoods, finding jobs, and travelling involved some contact with a cricket and social club. In this study Joseph brings a sport analysis to black diaspora research and shows how the cricket ground joins black Canadians as a unified community, to celebrate their homeland cultures and assuage the pain of racial terror that unifies the Black Atlantic. It offers a unique contribution to black diaspora studies through showing sport in Canada as a means of contending with ageing in the diaspora, creating transnational relationships, and marking ethnic boundaries on a local scale. The study also brings black diaspora analysis to sport research and takes a close look at what goes on before, during, and after cricket matches to provide insights into the dis-unities, contradictions and complexities of Afro-diasporic identity. The simultaneous representation of sameness and difference among Afro-Caribbean, African-American, Black British, Indo-Caribbean and South-Asian groups in Canada is played out on the cricket field. Sport in the Black Atlantic describes twenty-one months of ethnographic empirical evidence of how black identities are gendered, age-dependent and formed relationally, with boundary making and crossing as active processes in multicultural Canada. It will be of interest to students and scholars in sociology, sport studies, and black diaspora studies."

Abstract

La Méditerranée a été de tout temps zone de brassage. La période médiévale a vu s'y déployer bien des migrations, proches par leurs caractères des grands déplacements humains de l'époque contemporaine : flux et reflux des marchands italiens allant s'installer dans les comptoirs d'outre-mer, migrations forcées des Arméniens créant un nouveau foyer en Cilicie, ou des juifs espagnols cherchant refuge dans l'empire ottoman après le décret d'expulsion de 1492, migrations économiques d'Albanais, de...

Abstract

The eleven essays brought together in this volume explore the relations between expulsion, diaspora, and exile between Late Antiquity and the seventeenth century. The essays range from Hellenistic Egypt to seventeenth-century Hungary and involve expulsion and migration of Jews, Muslims and Protestants. The common goal of these essays is to shed light on a certain number of issues: first, to try to understand the dynamics of expulsion, in particular its social and political causes; second, to examine how expelled communities integrate (or not) into their new host societies; and finally, to understand how the experiences of expulsion and exile are made into founding myths that establish (or attempt to establish) group identities.

Abstract

"""Guiden till Spaniensverige"" (The Guide to Spanish-Sweden) is an ethnographic account on the mobilisation of a social community of Swedish migrants who otherwise belongs to the diverse networks of lifestyle migrants or resident tourists in Southern Spain. The book is based on interviews with people who are engaged in Scandinavian associations/clubs or in other ways involved in practices which are associated with a Swedish community in Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol, which are two main destinations for lifestyle migrants in Spain. In addition the analysis is based on the discursive material that the social clubs, and to some extent other organisations and networks, are using in the service to their members.&#xD;The book demonstrates how the practices of the large Scandinavian social clubs, but also other organisations like the Swedish church and some of the business associations, are operating at the locus of an ethnic and transnationalised form of community-making. The offering of a home-like social arena with social and cultural activities are privileging the Swedish language and the Swedish origin. This study concludes that the social practices employed by the clubs are guiding potential members to a social space in which preferably ‘senior’ Swedish migrants meet, socialise, and, to some extent, also consume in ‘Swedish’. The book argues that the practices of the social clubs reveal the contours and infrastructure of a lifestyle diaspora in which a comfortable life in Spain – but in Swedish and with maintained relations with the Swedish society – is accentuated and given priority."&#xD;

Abstract

"Islamic Shangri-La transports readers into the heart of the Himalayas by tracing the rise of the Tibetan Muslim (Khache) community from the early 17th century to the present. Over the past four centuries, the Tibetan Muslims advised several Dalai Lamas, contributed to Tibetan music and literature, and engaged in transregional trade with many of Tibet’s neighbors. Deftly blending contemporary media accounts and interviews with archival documents, this book brings the frustrations and hopes of Tibetan Muslims, and thus of Tibet, to life. &#xD;Less a history of religion than a history of the Himalayas, the book explores the eddying currents of peoples and states generally excluded from traditional histories of Asia. Its focus on the Tibetan Muslims’ multifaceted role in Tibetan society highlights Tibet’s broader inter-Asian positioning and delves into the intertwined relationship between Tibet and Nepal, Kashmir, and other Himalayan states. &#xD;The story of the Tibetan Muslims provides a new perspective on a history we thought we knew quite well. Illuminating their positioning within the dynamics of Asian state formation with a particular emphasis on the dramatic events of early to mid-20th century, the book opens an unparalleled examination of the long shadows of Tibet’s past on today’s Asia."&#xD;

Abstract

Les migrations internationales constituent aujourd’hui, dans toutes les régions du globe, un enjeu majeur du politique. Elles font l’objet d’accords internationaux, engendrent des litiges diplomatiques et, surtout, défient en permanence l’ordre du « national ». L’immigrant se heurte à des frontières, spatiales et administratives ; l’émigrant renégocie en permanence ses relations à son pays d’origine. Aussi les migrations obligent-elles sans cesse à repenser les frontières, les manières de con...

Abstract

يقدم مشروع هذا الأطلس رؤية جديدة للأراضي اللبنانية ويسلط الضوء على التحولات التي عرفتها على مدى السنوات الثلاثين الماضية. وهو ثمرة تعاون فرنسي- لبناني. ويستند هذا الكتاب على جمع واسع وكبير للمعلومات المكانية على مستوى دقيق. وتسمح خرائطه الغنية والفريدة من نوعها بإدراك الديناميات المعقدة في العمل في بلد يبدو في كثير من الأحيان عصياً على الفهم. إنها قراءة جديدة للأراضي اللبنانية نقترحها هنا، وهي لا تنفصل عن قراءة اندماج لبنان في العولمة وتطور دوره في الشرق الأوسط عموماً. إن الانفتاح على العالم...
