Compte-rendu de Conférence : « Out of Africa » – 23èmes rencontres sabéennes

Compte-rendu de colloque / Conference report

23èmes rencontres sabéennes (Vienne, 13-15 juin 2019)  / 23rd rencontres sabéennes (Vienna, 13rd-15th of june 2019)

 

The annual conference of « Rencontres Sabéennes », focusing on the pre-Islamic history of the South-Arabian Peninsula, was held this year in Vienna from the 13rd to the 15th of June. Ethiopia and southern Arabia share a common history, as evidenced by trade and cultural exchanges over the centuries. The conference was untitled « Out of Africa », and the presentations included a fair amount of papers considering the archaeology of the Horn of Africa. Indeed, seven papers and two posters were directly related to ancient Ethiopia, while three others were more or less linked to the Horn of Africa. This post briefly summarizes the content of these communications, highlighting the scientific dynamism that the research community on South-Arabia brings to this search field.

Industrial Work Dynamics: Report on a photographic exhibition

COMPTE-RENDU D’EXPOSITION / EXHIBITION REPORT

Industrial Work Dynamics

Portraits of Ethiopian workers

by Constance Perrin-Jolly (CFEE)

 

[in English]

“Industrial Work Dynamics – Portraits of Ethiopian workers” follows on from a first exhibition on work, “WOmen at work”, at the Ethio-French Alliance of Addis Ababa in January-February 2018.

This work falls within the perspective of social photography that aims to “show” social phenomena to a wide audience. This second exhibition also has a research objective: inspired by the photo-elucidation approach, where photography is used as a medium for interviews (Collier, 1967, Harper, 2002), the exhibition invites the visitor to share his impressions about the photographs. While the latter reveal the eye of a French sociologist of work, the participation of the audience will allow to give an account of the vision of workers in Ethiopia on these same work photographs.
