Atelier India-Africa: Towards a Dialogue of Humanities (Indian-European Advanced Research Network)
Le projet “India-Africa: Towards a dialogue of humanities” souhaite ouvrir un espace de réflexion commun à l’Inde et à l’Afrique, qui produise un déplacement du “regard éloigné”, par l’échappement aux liens coloniaux constitutifs du dialogue Inde-Europe et Afrique-Europe. Le projet prend ainsi la forme d’un dispositif heuristique pour mettre au jour les points aveugles du regard colonial à la racine même de la production du savoir académique, puisque ce regard n’est plus construit à partir de l’Europe. Il vise à produire une dissipation des relations de domination implicites, tant sur les contenus que sur les méthodologies.
The project “India-Africa: Towards a dialogue of humanities” wishes to open a space of reflection mutual to India and Africa, which would produce a transfer of the “view from afar”, by escaping the colonial links constituting the dialogue India-Europe and Africa-Europe. The project thus takes the shape of a heuristic device to bring to light the blind spots of the colonial view at the very root of the production of academic knowledge, since this view is no longer constructed from Europe. It aims to produce a dissipation of implicit relations of domination, on both content and methodologies.
