‘Islam & Otherness’ – 3rd PLURIEL International Congress

The 3rd international congress of PLURIEL, on the theme “Islam and Otherness” will take place in Beirut from Monday 23 May to Friday 27 May 2022.

The final programme is available and the registration is open.

To facilitate the stay of people coming from outside the country, PLURIEL offers price packages including pick-up from the airport, accommodation and meals.

Thématique

True acceptance of otherness in a globalized and pluralistic world allows us to measure the capacity of religious, philosophical or political thought to fit in and assume the contemporary societal dynamics inherent to globalization (Taylor). This acceptance is not devoid of resistance that stem from the rise of entrenched identity expressions founded in particularly on a vision of equality that is based on the “similar” which assumes a historical-ethnic (Rosanvallon) [1]

The congress ‘Islam and Otherness’ proposes to reflect on how Islam fits into this societal movement beyond identity resistance.

Three axes will allow us to approach the reality of otherness in Islam in terms of resources: geopolitical axis, dialogue axis and citizenship axis (muwatana).

Thématique

Dans un monde globalisé et pluraliste, la reconnaissance de l’altérité permet de mesurer la capacité d’une pensée religieuse, philosophique ou politique à intégrer les dynamiques sociétales contemporaines inhérentes à la mondialisation (Taylor). Or l’acceptation de l’autre ne va pas sans susciter des résistances et réveiller des réactions identitaires fermées qui se réclament d’une vision où l’égalité est réservée au semblable et qui présuppose une identité religieuse ou historico-ethnique (Rosanvallon) [1]

Le Congrès « Islam et altérité » propose de réfléchir sur la manière dont l’islam s’insère dans ce mouvement sociétal au-delà des résistances identitaires.

Trois axes permettront d’approcher la réalité de l’altérité en islam en termes de ressources : axe géopolitique, axe dialogal et axe citoyenneté (muwatana).
