Contemporary Women Philosophers in Arab Countries Intellectual Portraits

Contemporary Women Philosophers in Arab Countries Intellectual Portraits
The project sees itself as an intellectual and philosophical contribution to the international debate on modern Arabic philosophy and, in particular Arabic-speaking women philosophers. Instead of talking about Arab women and women philosophers, the project aims to create a space in which women philosophers from six Arabic-speaking countries (Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Qatar and Tunisia) can have their say and exchange ideas with an international audience.

Rachida Triki (em. Professor of Philosophy and Aesthetic at the University of Tunis), Critical Culture and Civil Society. Aesthetic Perspectives
Triki understands critique as a set of practices that manifest,
in particular through symbolic acts, a mode of breaking with
the dominant culture in a given society. One of the privileged
fields of critical practices is artistic creation which inscribes
in a significant way the difference in the socio-cultural
habitus. The lecture focuses on the Tunisian revolution and
analyzes not only its artistic dimensions but also the limits of
artistic practices confronted with new counterrevolutionary
cultural forms.

Elizabeth Suzanne Kassab (Associate Professor of Philosophy at the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies),Writing Contemporary Arab Intellectual History
Modern and contemporary Arab intellectual history
has been a developing field of scholarship in recent
years. Whether it is renewed interest in the previous
turn of the century Arab Renaissance (the nahda) or the
exploration of the post-independence years, new studies
have been emerging to revisit established histories or to
shed new light on lesser known ones. E. Kassab explores
the philosophical and political significance of this
history writing.
