Beskrivelse

Discussant of Timéra's paper. Guest lecture (in English) by Professor Mahamet Timéra, Université de Paris 7 – Diderot Director of the joint research unit, Unité de recherché “Migration et Société” (URMIS) between Université de Paris 7 – Diderot and Université de Nice -Sophia Antipolis. Mahamet Timéra, a sociologist and anthropologist, is a full professor at Paris Diderot University. A member of URMIS, his research focuses on African migrations and ethnoreligious identity construction. His publications include Les Soninke en France. D’une histoire à l’autre. Paris: Karthala (1996) and Timéra, Mahamet (2009) ‘Aventuriers ou orphelins de la migration internationale? Nouveaux et anciens migrants subsahariens au Maroc’, Politique africaine N° 115, pp 175-195. Timéra, Mahamet (2011) “La religion en partage, la couleur et l’origine comme frontière. Les migrants sénégalais au Maroc”. Cahiers d’Etudes Africaines, no. 201.pp 24-35. Professor Mahamet Timéra offers a deconstruction of the public discourse of “integration” and other ethno-racial, ethno-national and ethno-religious categories (Immigrant, Arab/Black/Asian/Jewish/Muslim etc.) employed by the French state structures, the media and the general public. Professor Timéra also discusses whether the West African migrant communities and associations can be said to appropriate the dominant categories and derive empowering strategies based on them. His presentation will link these theoretical discussions to the events in 2005-2006 in the suburbs, and also link it to the recent public discussion of the French colonial past. His presentation is based on his book chapter « The Empire of Ethno-racial and ethno-religious categorisations », 2012, in : « L’empire des catégories ethnico-raciales et ethnico-religieuses » In L'Afrique des banlieues françaises, Dir. Michel Agier, Rémy Bazenguissa-Ganga, Ed. Paari, pp. 27-42.
