Islam and Belonging. Proceedings of the PLURIEL 2nd International Congress

After its first international congress in Lyon from 6 to 9 September 2016 on the theme “Islam in the Plural: Faith, Thought, Society”[1], the current study brings together the proceedings of the Second PLURIEL Congress held in Rome from 26 to 28 June 2018. In partnership with the Gregorian University and the Pontifical Institute for Arab and Islamic Studies (PISAI), the Congress brought together more than one hundred and twenty researchers from its network of more than fifteen countries. This intellectual adventure is also a human adventure where a network, mainly made up of Catholic institutions, supports the reflection of academics on the question of Islam along three axes: community, territorial and citizen.

This book addresses the crucial question of «Islam and belonging» from three angles: theological, the context of the Middle East and that of Europe. Offering the double advantage of being less rigid than the category of identity and more articulated to the phenomenon of recompositions specific to modernity, the notion of belonging opens on many fields of reflection, including sociological, political and theological. Contemporary transformations cannot be apprehended by making the economy of the modes of articulation, transition, rupture and antagonism that are established between tradition and modernity. The plurality of approaches, fields and cultural contexts illuminates differently what appears in the order of an identity tension in reference to a religion, Islam.

Order

Après son premier congrès international à Lyon du 6 au 9 septembre 2016 sur le thème “L’islam au pluriel : foi, pensée, société”[1], l’actuelle étude rassemble les actes du deuxième Congrès de PLURIEL tenu à Rome du 26 au 28 juin 2018. En partenariat avec l’Université pontificale grégorienne et l’Institut pontifical d’études arabes et d’islamologie (PISAI), le Congrès a réuni plus de 120 chercheurs de son réseau de plus de quinze pays. Cette aventure intellectuelle est également une aventure humaine où un réseau, principalement constitué d’institutions catholiques, soutient la réflexion d’universitaires sur la question de l’islam suivant trois axes : communautaire, territorial et citoyen.

Ce livre aborde la problématique cruciale “Islam et appartenances” sous trois angles : théologique, le contexte du Proche-Orient et celui de l’Europe. Offrant le double avantage d’être moins rigide que la catégorie d’identité et plus articulée au phénomène de recompositions propre à la modernité, la notion d’appartenance ouvre sur nombre de champs de réflexion, notamment sociologique, politique et théologique. Les transformations contemporaines ne sauraient être appréhendées en faisant l’économie des modes d’articulation, de transition, de rupture et d’antagonisme qui se nouent entre la tradition et la modernité. La pluralité des approches, des terrains et des contextes culturels éclaire autrement ce qui apparaît de l’ordre d’une crispation identitaire en référence à une religion, l’islam.

Sommaire

Commander

بعد مؤتمر الشبكة الأوّل الذي عُقدَ في ليون من 6 إلى 9 أيلول/سبتمبر 2016 وتناول موضوع “الإسلام بأوجهه المتعددة: الفكر والإيمان والمجتمع” [1]، تَجمعُ الدراسةُ الحالية أعمال مؤتمر Pluriel الذي عُقد في روما من 26 إلى 28 حزيران/ يونيو 2018. نجحَ المؤتمر بشراكة مع الجامعة البابوية الجريجورية والمعهد البابوي للدراسات العربية والإسلاميّة، في جمع 120 باحثاً من أكثر من خمسة عشر بلداً ينتمون كلّهم إلى شبكته. وتُعتبرُ هذه المغامرةُ الفكريّةُ مغامرةً إنسانيّةً تدعمُ فيها شبكةٌ مؤلّفة من مؤسسات كاثوليكيّةٍ التفكيرَ المعمّق لأكاديميّين حول مسألة الإسلام استناداً إلى محاور ثلاثة: المجتمع المحلّي، والأرض والمواطن.

يتناولُ هذا الكتابُ إشكالية “الإسلام والانتماءات” الجوهرية على ضوء زوايا ثلاث : الدراسات الإسلامية وسياق الشرق الأدنى وسياق أوروبا. إنّ مفهوم الانتماء يتّسمُ بميزة مزدوجة تتمثّل بكونه أقلّ تشدّداً من فئة الهوية وأكثر تفصيلاً لظاهرة إعادة الهيكلة الخاصّة بالحداثة، لذا تراه يفتح الأبواب أمام مجالات تفكير عدّة لا سيما الاجتماعية والسياسية والدراسات الإسلامية. لا يمكن استيعاب التحوّالات الحديثة المعاصرة من خلال تجاهل أنماط التعبير والانتقال والانقطاع والتنافر التي تربط التقليد بالحداثة. من هنا، يشرحُ تعدّدُ المقاربات والمجالات والسياقات الثقافية بوضوح ما يبدو أنّه تزعزع هوية دينيّة، هويّة الإسلام.
