PUBLICATION

Francis ANFRAY, avec Chiara ZAZZARO, Recherches archéologiques à Adoulis (Érythrée), Toulouse, Presses Universitaires du Midi, 2016. 116 p.

 

La civilisation axoumite a pris son essor dans le nord de l’Éthiopie et en Érythrée où elle a fleuri entre le Ier et le VIIe siècle de notre ère. Cette civilisation s’inscrit alors dans l’orbite du monde gréco-romain et illustre le rôle joué par cette puissance africaine dans les relations diplomatiques avec la péninsule Arabique, ainsi que les échanges économiques entre Méditerranée et océan Indien. Carrefour de ce trafic terrestre et maritime, Adoulis, sur la mer Rouge, était le port du royaume.

በመንገድ ላይ እንደገና

Chers lecteurs, chères lectrices,

Je quitte ce soir ma fonction de rédacteur en chef du blog Un œil sur la Corne… ainsi que le CFEE, la belle Éthiopie, et sa froide saison des pluies (ce dernier élément sans regret !). La relève devrait être assurée à partir de la rentrée. Mes remerciements vont à toute l’équipe du CFEE, qui a rapidement adhéré à ce projet, à nos chercheurs et à nos visiteurs qui ont fait que la vie scientifique au CFEE a été particulièrement dynamique et conviviale ces deux dernières années. Je crois que ce blog reflète bien ce qui a été accompli en la matière, et je suis heureux d’avoir pu participer à cette belle entreprise.

Dear readers,

I am leaving tonight my position as managing editor of the blog An Eye on the Horn… as well as the CFEE, beautiful Ethiopia, and its cold rainy season (this very last point without regrets!). Continuity will be assured by the staff in September. I wished to thank the CFEE team who signed up to this project, our researchers and guests who made the scientific life of the CFEE so active and friendly these last two years. I think this blog reflects well what has been accomplished in this regard, and I am particularly glad that I had the opportunity to participate in this beautiful collective adventure.

Le CFEE lance ses collections de livres numériques sur OpenEdition Books / The CFEE launches its digital book series on OpenEdition Books

Le CFEE a inauguré le 29 juillet 2016 son site Internet de publications numériques, hébergé sur le portail OpenEdition Books développé par le Centre pour l’édition électronique ouverte (CLEO – CNRS/Aix-Marseille Université/EHESS/Université d’Avignon).

On July 29, 2016, the CFEE opened its own website for digital publications. The website is hosted by the OpenEdition Books portal developed by the Center for open-access edition (CLEO – CNRS/Aix-Marseille Université/EHESS/Université d’Avignon).

Le CFEE a lancé pour cela deux collections de livres numériques : la nouvelle collection « Corne de l’Afrique contemporaine » – qui accueille à la fois des ouvrages précédemment publiés par le CFEE et des ouvrages inédits ; et la collection « Bulletins de la Maison des études éthiopiennes », qui réédite les volumes publiés entre 1992 et 1997 par la Maison des études éthiopiennes – l’ancêtre du CFEE.
Ce site répond à deux objectifs : valoriser et diffuser d’anciennes publications « papier » du catalogue du CFEE, aujourd’hui hors-commerce, et favoriser la publication d’ouvrages inédits en leur donnant la plus large audience possible, en Éthiopie, dans la Corne de l’Afrique et au-delà. Le texte des ouvrages (HTML) est disponible gratuitement, pour tout le catalogue.

The CFEE launched two new digital book series: « Contemporary Horn of Africa » – that includes new volumes along with digital republications of books previously published by the CFEE – and « Bulletins de la Maison des études éthiopiennes » – that reissues volumes published between 1992 and 1997 by the Maison des études éthiopiennes, the institution that preceded the CFEE. The website meets two objectives: it promotes and disseminates old « paper » publications from the CFEE’s catalogue, and it encourages the publication of unpublished works, giving them the wider audience possible in Ethiopia, in the Horn of Africa, and beyond. The texts (HTML) are available for free online, for the whole catalogue.
