Teaching the Muslim worlds: languages, histories, societies
- Descartes Campus
Université de Lyon – ENS de Lyon
Forum hosted by the scientific interest group Middle East and Muslim worlds
This forum is organized by three Lyon-based laboratories that are part of the scientific interest group (GIS) “Middle East and Muslim Worlds”: CIHAM, LARHRA and Triangle.
This event involves the entire educational community, and aims to extend to the field of education the debate initiated by the White Paper on French studies of the Middle East and Muslim Worlds.
- To bring together secondary school teachers and researchers from all disciplines in North Africa and the Middle East;
- To assess the state of teaching of languages, history, literature, the arts and Islamic thought across the French educational system;
- To draw up recommendations to strengthen this teaching, and overcome the hurdles it faces by helping the pedagogical teams claim ownership of researchers’ findings.
The challenge this forum aims to meet is to instill sense and dynamism to the teaching of Muslim worlds and Islamic thought within the republican and secular framework of modern France. The forum will combine scientific findings and didactical workshops led jointly by secondary school teachers and researchers.
