Abstract

L'approche culturaliste, qui fait une distinction catégorique entre le monde occidental et le monde musulman, a refait surface. Cette perspective réifie l'islam comme une force objective et indépendante qui modèlerait les musulmans, leur culture et leurs relations dans leur société et au sein de leur famille. Elle conclut à l'immuabilité de leur structure tant familiale que sociale et politique du fait de la prééminence du facteur religieux. Le présent ouvrage, issu d'un colloque organisé par l'équipe Monde iranien du CNRS, s'interroge sur la validité de cette approche. Il réunit les contributions d'anthropologues, de démographes et de sociologues qui examinent le cas de l'Afrique subsaharienne, de l'Algérie, de l'Inde et de l'Iran. En abordant les questions relatives à la structure patriarcale, aux impacts de l'intervention de l'État, à la place de l'enfant au sein de la famille, aux rapports entre générations, aux processus d'individuation et d'autonomisation, ces contributions soulignent les mutations de ces sociétés et révèlent le facteur religieux comme un facteur parmi d'autres.

Abstract

The current political climate of confrontation between Islamist regimes and Western governments has resulted in the proliferation of essentialist perceptions of Iran and Iranians in the West. Such perceptions do not reflect the complex evolution of Iranian identity that occurred in the years following the Constitutional Revolution (1906–11) and the anti-imperialist Islamic Revolution of 1979. Despite the Iranian government’s determined pursuance of anti-Western policies and strict conformity to religious principles, the film and literature of Iran reflect the clash between a nostalgic pride in Persian tradition and an apparent infatuation with a more Eurocentric modernity. In Familiar and Foreign, Mannani and Thompson set out to explore the tensions surrounding the ongoing formulation of Iranian identity by bringing together essays on poetry, novels, memoir, and films. These include both canonical and less widely theorized texts, as well as works of literature written in English by authors living in diaspora.Challenging neocolonialist stereotypes, these critical excursions into Iranian literature and film reveal the limitations of collective identity as it has been configured within and outside of Iran. Through the examination of works by, among others, the iconic female poet Forugh Farrokhzad, the expatriate author Goli Taraqqi, the controversial memoirist Azar Nafisi, and the graphic novelist Marjane Satrapi, author of Persepolis, this volume engages with the complex and contested discourses of religion, patriarchy, and politics that are the contemporary product of Iran’s long and revolutionary history.

Abstract

Les trois contributions réunies dans cette première livraison des Cahiers de l'IREMAM apportent des éclairages complémentaires au phénomène complexe du café dans le Proche-Orient. La mise en parallèle d'une cérémonie turque du café (Hélène Desmet) et de la cérémonie de thé japonaise (Jane Cobbi), permet de dégager les spécificités d'une consommation ritualisée dans deux contextes différents. Le Caire, pôle de diffusion du café dans toute l'aire méditerranéenne ? Michel Tuchscherer en étudiant...

Abstract

Electronic Iran introduces the concept of the Iranian Internet, a framework that captures interlinked, transnational networks of virtual and offline spaces. Taking her cues from early Internet ethnographies that stress the importance of treating the Internet as both a site and product of cultural production, accounts in media studies that highlight the continuities between old and new media, and a range of works that have made critical interventions in the field of Iranian studies, Niki Akhavan traces key developments and confronts conventional wisdom about digital media in general, and contemporary Iranian culture and politics in particular. Akhavan focuses largely on the years between 1998 and 2012 to reveal a diverse and combative virtual landscape where both geographically and ideologically dispersed individuals and groups deployed Internet technologies to variously construct, defend, and challenge narratives of Iranian national identity, society, and politics. While it tempers celebratory claims that have dominated assessments of the Iranian Internet, Electronic Iran is ultimately optimistic in its outlook. As it exposes and assesses overlooked aspects of the Iranian Internet, the book sketches a more complete map of its dynamic landscape, and suggests that the transformative powers of digital media can only be developed and understood if attention is paid to both the specificities of new technologies as well as the local and transnational contexts in which they appear. This title was made Open Access by libraries from around the world through Knowledge Unlatched.

Abstract

Par le nombre et la qualité des œuvres réalisées, la variété des thèmes explorés et le foisonnement de ses réalisateurs, le cinéma iranien s’affirme comme l’un des plus dynamiques du monde. Depuis le début des années 80, il ne cesse d’accumuler les plus hautes distinctions dans les festivals internationaux. Cette vitalité est aussi remarquable que paradoxale. Rien ne laissait supposer que ce cinéma survivrait à l’épreuve de la révolution islamique de 1979, à laquelle ont succédé huit années d...

Abstract

L’Avesta que nous possédons n’est pas un livre au contenu hasardeusement élagué par le temps, comme a pu le laisser penser l’approche de Karl Hoffmann, mais l’aboutissement direct et complet d’une liturgie de composition variable et, dans toutes ses variantes, très ancienne. On prendra pleinement la mesure de ce bouleversement de la philologie avestique et de ses incidences sur la reconstruction des origines zoroastriennes en comparant la leçon inaugurale et la leçon de clôture. J’ai voulu qu...

Abstract

Explores the political, economic and religious role of women in the Mongol empire This book shows the development of women’s status in the Mongol Empire from its original homeland in Mongolia up to the end of the Ilkhanate of Iran in 1335. Taking a thematic approach, the chapters show a coherent progression of this development and contextualise the evolution of the role of women in medieval Mongol society. The arrangement serves as a starting point from where to draw comparison with the status of Mongol women in the later period. Exploring patterns of continuity and transformation in the status of these women in different periods of the Mongol Empire as it expanded westwards into the Islamic world, the book offers a view on the transformation of a nomadic-shamanist society from its original homeland in Mongolia to its settlement in the mostly sedentary-Muslim Iran in the mid-13th century.

Abstract

Machineries of Oil is an investigation into oil infrastructure in modern society, examining local power struggles over the construction of the global oil industry in a non-western context. This history is crucial for understanding the twentieth-century politics of the Middle East and the peculiar ways in which countries of the Global South have served as irreplaceable laboratories for producing knowledge and know-how on nature and society. This book will come at a time when tensions between the US and Iran, and tensions surrounding the politics of the oil industry in the Middle East in particular, have become unfortunately heightened in the wake of the change in US administration. We feel this book is particularly suited to the Knowledge Unlatched program because our reach to Middle East studies audiences is somewhat limited, and we’d like this book to be available to as many readers as possible, despite limited marketing resources to go beyond our usual channels.
