  • L'Iran se situe à l'intersection du continent africain au sud, de l'Europe à l'ouest et de l'Asie à l'est. C'est une zone charnière pour la compréhension des peuplements humains pendant la préhistoire. Pourtant, la préhistoire d'Iran est mal connue.
    De ce point de vue, les fouilles menées depuis 2005 à Garm Roud, site de plein-air du paléolithique supérieur, constituent une référence. La pluridisciplinarité des recherches menées à partir des vestiges mis au jour offre un panorama très détaillé de ce qui fut une halte de chasse, il y a 35 000 ans.
    Une base pour connaître le paléolithique d'Iran et ses interférences géographiques et culturelles.
    Une clé pour comprendre évolution des cultures et mouvements des populations pendant la préhistoire via le Proche-Orient.

  • Ce livre vise à offrir une réflexion informée et une analyse critique du rôle des universités au sein des dynamiques mondiales par le biais d'une pluralité de voix de divers milieux. Bien que le monde universitaire soit souvent associé à l'indépendance d'esprit et à la pensée critique, de nombreux indices laissent entrevoir une autre dynamique : le monde universitaire comme catalyseur du renforcement des lois et des politiques favorables aux puissants acteurs du monde de la finance, avec leurs répercussions prévisibles sur la reproduction des inégalités. Les études de cas présentées ici proviennent du Nord et du Sud et englobent plusieurs domaines, dont celui des affaires, de la politique, de l'éducation, du droit et de la santé.

    Ce texte bilingue est le fruit d'une conférence intitulée « Quel savoir pour quel développement ? », tenue à l'Université de Tromso, en Norvège. La volonté d'organiser cette conférence est née d'une inquiétude grandissante, constatée dans les pays du Nord comme ceux du Sud, sur le rôle des universités dans les affaires publiques et les interchanges internationaux.

    Malgré de nombreux programmes de collaboration et l'apparente inclusion du sud dans le discours universitaire à travers le monde, on a vu se creuser le fossé entre les sociétés riches et les populations plus pauvres. Quels liens directs ou indirects peuvent être tracés entre le milieu universitaire et la crise économique de 2008, les migrations de masse du Sud vers le Nord, les divers cas de grande corruption recensés récemment et les conflits armés qui affligent le monde ?

  • This volume is the seventh in the annual series and the second of its kind published with the Presses Universitaires de Liège. The State of Environmental Migration aims to provide its readership with the most updated assessments on recent events and evolving dynamics of environmental migration throughout the world. Each year, the editors select the best graduate student work from the course «Environment and Migration», taught by François Gemenne and Caroline Zickgraf, at the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) of Sciences Po. Presented in this edition are displacements induced by some of the most dramatic disaster events of 2016, including Hurricane Matthew, as well as analyses of migration flows related to a variety of environmental occurrences throughout the year spanning the globe. SEM 2017 thus represents another stepping stone towards understanding the broad spectrum that is environmental migration.

  • L'interesse precipuo del volume collettaneo La villa dopo la villa risiede nel tentativo di presentare un quadro dell'archeologia delle ville tardoantiche tra bilanci e nuove prospettive, con particolare riferimento all'Italia settentrionale, pur non mancando riferimenti e ad altre regioni della penisola ed altre aree geografiche del Mediterraneo. Il fenomeno della fine delle ville, tra VI e IX sec. d.C., è un tema oggetto di studi ed aggiornamenti ormai da più di due decenni, in particolare nell'abito della pars Occidentalis dell'Impero romano. Le trasformazioni del sistema rurale tardoantico, le nuove relazioni tra città e campagna, i mutati sistemi d'insediamento rurale ed una ancora difficilmente spiegabile, se non credibile, propensione delle élites altomedievali al passaggio abitativo dalle ville alle capanne costituiscono un'arborescenza di studi che ha prodotto pagine talora anche rivoluzionarie quanto alla percezione moderna della continuità/cesura tra Antichità e Medioevo in merito all'abitare e controllare il territorio per villas.L'interesse precipuo del volume collettaneo La villa dopo la villa risiede nel tentativo di presentare un quadro dell'archeologia delle ville tardoantiche tra bilanci e nuove prospettive, con particolare riferimento all'Italia settentrionale, pur non mancando riferimenti e ad altre regioni della penisola ed altre aree geografiche del Mediterraneo, in particolare la Spagna e le Gallie. Infatti, se il panorama sulle ville della tarda Antichità si presenta ricco di casi esemplari, analisi puntuali e sintesi che hanno portato a formulare modelli storico-archeologici sul Centro ed il Sud dell'Italia - a parte alcuni contesti ampiamente studiati e comunicati, come Desenzano del Garda - il Nord della penisola, soprattutto l'area compresa tra la Lombardia occidentale e il Piemonte, risultava meno conosciuto, ancorché oggetto di ricerche puntuali.La curiosità di approfondimento delle evidenze archeologiche in quei contesti e il desiderio di una messa a confronto di siti quali Palazzo Pignano (non lungi da Milano) e Aiano (in provincia di Siena) con altri del Nord Italia hanno costituito l'impulso a dare vita al volume, esperimento editoriale la cui prosecuzione, auspicata da più parti, potrebbe continuare in futuro con nuovi e diversi orizzonti geografici da riscoprire.

  • North American popular culture encompasses so many productions and practices that influence one another permanently that it is no easy task to have an accurate, long-lasting, and consensual picture of it. However, it can be described as being «on the move» as it has evolved by adapting and reacting to simultaneous societal inputs. This book was born out of a will to show the diversity and transversal aspect of popular culture. It does not intend to theorize the notion of popular culture(s) itself, but to provide food for thought to readers, whatever their background. Thus, the focus of this collection of papers is to tackle popular culture as a means to (re)think central issues that are transversal and emblematic of the American way of life.

  • "Cet essai en langue anglaise a pour objet les producteurs d'images dans l'Éthiopie chrétienne orthodoxe contemporaine. Ce travail s'inscrit à la croisée de l'anthropologie de la religion, de l'image et de la morale, tout en analysant aussi les pratiques magico-thérapeutiques traditionnelles."

    - the writing of the main aspects of the Bamileke traditions;
    - the search for solutions to protect Bamileke traditions against the risk of disappearance in the face of the influence of globalization on the civilizations of peoples.
    The main aspects of the Bamileke traditions that this researcher has studied are the following:
    - the origin and socio-political organization of the Bamileke people;
    - the religion, the culture and the economy of the Bamileke people;

  • In Syria, prehistoric material testifies of a very old occupation. The stratigraphy accumulated of the known sites give evidence of the human presence in the Near East since 1,3 million years. In the course of the millenniums the people regularly settled down there: around water sources. In the pond of Palmyra, prehistoric remains are many and varied. So, in this dry region, for a long time, the presence of the water seems to have made of Palmyra a place of anchoring. The concentration of sites on this restricted geographical area contradicts the idea of rare occupations in these steppiques zones during the prehistory. This very old antiquity is presented here from the excavations of the site of Umm el Tlel, under the shape of a notebook with, to the back, a general stratigraphy of the Syrian prehistory.

  • En Syrie, les vestiges de la préhistoire mis au jour témoignent d'une occupation très ancienne. Les stratigraphies cumulées des sites connus attestent de la présence humaine au Proche Orient depuis 1,3 million d'années. Au fil des millénaires les hommes se sont régulièrement installés là : autour des points d'eau. Dans le bassin de Palmyre, les vestiges mis au jour sont nombreux et variés. Ainsi, dans cette région aride, depuis toujours, la présence de l'eau semble avoir fait de Palmyre un lieu d'ancrage. La concentration des sites sur cette aire géographique restreinte contredit l'idée du peu d'occupations des zones steppiques pendant la préhistoire. Cette très ancienne antiquité est présentée ici à partir des fouilles du site d'Umm el Tlel, sous la forme d'un livret de six volets avec, au dos, une stratigraphie générale de la préhistoire syrienne.

  • Anglais The golden bough

    James Fraser

    Sir James George Frazer (1854-1941) caught the popular imagination with his vast and enterprising comparative study of the beliefs and institutions of mankind, which in its third edition numbered twelve volumes. Reissued here is Frazer's own single-volume abridgement of 1922.
    With its discussion of every aspect of the evolution of the customs and beliefs of different cultures - from magic and religion, myth and ritual to fertility rites, the sacrifical killings of kings, and totems and taboos - "The Golden Bough" appealed to a wide, educated readership. Of enormous influence on writers such as D. H. Lawrence, Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot, who spoke of Frazer as a "profound" influence upon "our generation", the Golden Bough" was also seen by some as " a story of irrational savagery beneath the civilized veneer of late Victorian and Edwardian Europe".
    Although many of Frazer's views are not accepted today, his work is undergoing a reapraisal, and will continue to provide rich material for reinterpretation, among anthropologists and beyond, for a long time to come.
