Les dispositifs d'anticipation dans le monde arabe : enquêtes ethnographiques

Abstract : Arab Springs have both heightened a sense of precariousness and instability and opened up possible worlds that have emerged as being not only thinkable but also achievable in the countries it affected directly or indirectly. This context invites for new appraisals of “future” and of “what is to come” for individual and collectives. It is the task the research project is going to tackle, embracing a pragmatic approach aiming to study practical forms of engagement with the future. The methodology rests on long-term, situated, and detailed ethnographical inquiries in anticipatory practices, devices, and techniques. Our goal is to explore the creativity, flexibility, and innovation implemented on a daily basis in relation to futures to be. As Arab societies are persistently perceived as past-oriented and inapt to social innovation, the program is set to map (and channel throughout communication) unexpected ways of dealing with possible and/or latent innovation in the Arab world.
