Abstract

Dans le cadre d’une étude des relations de l’Inde avec les pays étrangers, le présent volume réunit deux articles consacrés aux échanges de biens et d’idées entre l’Inde et l’Empire romain. Le premier est consacré aux échanges de l’Inde et de Rome aux premiers siècles de l’ère chrétienne, les communications entre ces deux grands foyers de civilisation étant bien attestées par les textes grecs et latins et confirmées par les textes indiens et par les découvertes archéologiques. Le second s’intéresse à un texte attestant d’une connaissance approfondie de la philosophie brahmanique dans l’Antiquité classique: un exposé grec de cette philosophie rédigé au IIIe siècle, l’Elenchos, est ici traduit en français, commenté et interprété à la lumière des Upaniṣad.

Abstract

This volume discusses a practical approach to cultural transfer and exchange through the concept of »memory box«. Ideas of displacement, transfer, and cultural memory are explored through case studies from Scotland to Italy and Germany and from Finland and France to the American colonies. The authors develop an understanding of memory boxes as cultural constructions that are involved in the process of making and disputing memory – but which, simultaneously, are important agents for cultural transfer over space and time. This book emphasises »memory box« as an idea that allows us to study the cultural processes of transfer in conjunction with cultural memory.

Abstract

There is very little in the modern literature on the history of written culture that describes the specific practices related to writing that were anchored in colonial contexts. It was not just ships, soldiers, missionaries and settlers that drove the process of European expansion from the 16th to the 19th centuries. The circulation of images, manuscripts and books between different continents played a key role too. The introduction and appropriation of writing into societies without alphabets was a major factor in changing the very function and meaning of written culture. This book explores the extent to which the types of written information that resulted during colonial expansion shaped the numerous and complex processes of cultural exchange from the 16th century onwards in Africa and the Americas.
