Publication : Enseigner l’histoire à l’heure de l’ébranlement colonial. Soudan, Égypte, empire britannique (1943-1960)

Le CEDEJ est heureux de vous annoncer la publication de l’ouvrage

 

 » Enseigner l’histoire à l’heure de l’ébranlement colonial. Soudan,Égypte, empire britannique (1943-1960) »

Alors que les combats de la Seconde Guerre mondiale achevaient de dissoudre le mythe de la supériorité de l’homme blanc, le Soudan était disputé par ses deux maîtres officiels, la Grande-Bretagne et l’Égypte. Le territoire s’acheminait-il vers l’indépendance ou une union politique avec son voisin méditerranéen ? La rivalité anglo-égyptienne, couplée à un impérialisme britannique soucieux de « préparer » les sociétés africaines à la souveraineté nationale, déboucha sur l’unification hâtive du Nord et du Sud-Soudan en 1947. Parvenues à des positions de pouvoir une décennie avant l’indépendance (1956), les élites du Nord s’attachèrent à faire du Soudan, pays à forte pluralité ethnolinguistique et religieuse, un État-nation arabe et musulman.

Dans ce contexte, un nouvel enseignement d’histoire fut élaboré pour les écoles élémentaires soudanaises. Quels en étaient les acteurs, les récits, les pratiques ? Cet ouvrage décortique les représentations, les apprentissages et les rapports sociaux sous-tendant la production et l’usage de manuels en langue arabe dans le Soudan colonial tardif. L’auteure propose également un éclairage comparatif sur l’histoire enseignée dans d’autres territoires de l’empire britannique en voie d’émiettement.

Ce livre offre de nouvelles clés de compréhension d’une séquence charnière dans l’histoire du monde contemporain. Au regard de l’actualité plus récente, il montre quel rôle l’histoire scolaire a pu jouer dans l’éclatement du cadre national soudanais après 1956, aboutissant à la scission du Soudan en deux États en 2011.

 

Iris Seri-Hersch est maître de conférences au Département d’études moyen-orientales (DEMO) d’Aix-Marseille Université et rattachée à l’Institut de recherches et d’études sur les mondes arabes et musulmans (IREMAM). Ses travaux portent sur l’histoire contemporaine du Soudan et de l’espace israélo-palestinien.

 

European migration policies: the case of the EUTF in Sudan

Dear All,

We are very pleased to announce CEDEJ Khartoum next Seminar :

Vladimir Cayol

“European migration policies: the case of the EUTF in Sudan”

Wednesday 25 April, 3pm

CEDEJ Khartoum

Summary: In 2015, during the La Valetta Summit, which gathered leaders of the 28 States of the European Union and about fifty African leaders, the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Junker announced the launch of the Emergency Trust Fund for Africa. The European Trust Fund, financed by 3.4 Billion euros, aims at “addressing root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement”, protecting migrants along the migratory roads, and fighting against criminal networks which organize illegal migration. More than two years later, what does the Sudanese case reveals in terms of EU migration policies implementation? Sudan stands in a very special place in the Horn of Africa when it comes to migration trends. Situated between Eastern Africa and the Arab world, Sudan is crossed by many migrants whose desire is to reach the European shores. In a broader perspective, as a country of transit, departure, and even destination for migrants from the Horn of Africa or beyond, Sudan has become an key partner for the European countries. From a fieldwork conducted between September 2017 and April 2018 in Khartoum, I will examine the implementation of this financial tool in order to offer a better understanding of the policies implemented by the European Union in Sudan.

 

Vladimir Cayol is a master student in the field of Africa and the Middle East International and International Cooperation at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. He has been in intern in CEDEJ Khartoum where he has been working on migration issues these last months.

CEDEJ Khartoum is located in Khartoum 2 (street 59), not too far from Ozone. The closest « famous » building is an hospital : mustachfa « Jaber Abu el 3eez », mustachfa sukari (for diabetes). Our centre is at the second floor (there is a « CEDEJ » sign on the balcony).
