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

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

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...

Abstract

Nationalisme, minorité, identité, communauté… Ces termes qui ont fait un retour en force dans les années 1990 prennent une résonance particulière en Méditerranée orientale, des Balkans à l’Égypte en passant par la Turquie et le Proche-Orient. Il s’agit là d’un espace traversé par trois dynamiques politiques majeures : affirmations nationales vigoureuses pour compenser une légitimité étatique souvent précaire, mobilisation de l’ethnicité à l’intérieur des ensembles politiques existants, organi...

Abstract

Following the Balfour Declaration and the British conquest of Palestine (1917-1918), the small Jewish community that lived there wanted to establish an elected assembly as its representative body. The issue that hindered this aim was whether women would be part of it. A group of feminist Zionist women from all over the country created a political party that participated in the elections, even before women's suffrage was enacted. This unique phenomenon in Mandatory Palestine resulted in the declaration of women's equal rights in all aspects of life by the newly founded Assembly of Representatives. Margalit Shilo examines the story of these activists to elaborate on a wide range of issues, including the Zionist roots of feminism and nationalism; the ultra-Orthodox Jewish sector's negation of women's equality; how traditional Jewish concepts of women fashioned rabbinical attitudes on the question of women's suffrage; and how the fight for women's suffrage spread throughout the country. Using current gender theories, Shilo compares the Zionist suffrage struggle to contemporaneous struggles across the globe, and connects this nearly forgotten episode, absent from Israeli historiography, with the present situation of Israeli women. This rich analysis of women's right to vote within this specific setting will appeal to scholars and students of Israel studies, and to feminist and social historians interested in how contexts change the ways in which activism is perceived and occurs. This title was made Open Access by libraries from around the world through Knowledge Unlatched.
