Gendered expressions

resistance, movement and transformative crises across The Mediterranean

In homage of Hassan ABBAS (1955 – 8 March 2021

Workshop organized by

Randi DEGUILHEM, CNRS, TELEMMe-MMSH, AMU, GenderMed, PIMo, Aix-en-Provence, France

WORKSHOP With  PIMo Working Group 2 Ideas in Motion


Using an array of primary archives: narratives, chronicles, letters, films, figurative art, websites and other means of communication, this workshop analyzes gendered expressions of resistance articulated during times of transformative crises (economic, social, political, health epidemics and pandemics, etc.) in the modern and contemporary Mediterranean. In this context, we will focus on trajectories and repercussions of movements across and within the Mediterranean during times of crisis on the local, regional, national and international levels. Movement of people signifies movement of ideas from one place to another: it is often a situation of crisis which provides conditions for cultural transfer, translation and appropriation which have fashioned the Mediterranean world and its real or imagined communities and geographies.

As concerns women and men, living through a crisis may provoke a gendered reassessment of the self as well as challenges of one’s relation to religion and other structured societal paradigms regarding the self as well as one’s place within the community and the larger society. This is especially discernible within the field of cultural perceptions and the history of ideas.
