Les discours religieux fondamentalistes actuels expriment une obsession croissante de la pudeur des femmes. Réduite aux parties de son corps susceptibles d’éveiller le désir, la femme est « génitalisée » à outrance. Faut-il alors couvrir sa nudité ? Faut-il la renvoyer à son destin : le voilement ? Delphine Horvilleur analyse successivement les sens de la pudeur et de la nudité, l'obsession du corps de la femme et sa représentation comme "être orificiel" pour proposer une autre interprétation de la tradition religieuse. Elle met à mal les lectures qui font de la femme un être tentateur, et de la pudeur l'instrument de sa domintation. Ainsi nous montre-t-elle comment la nudité recouverte d'Adam, d'Eve ou de Noé, renvoie à une culture du désir et non à une volonté de le tuer. Comment le voile est à l'origine destiné, non à rejeter, mais à approcher l'autre. Comment le féminin concerne aussi les hommes qui endossent, dans la prière et la pratique judaïques, les attributs des femmes et du maternel. On découvre alors, dans cette plongée au cœur des grands monothéismes, un autre visage de la femme, de la pudeur, et de la religion.

Jews and Words

DIV Why are words so important to so many Jews? Novelist Amos Oz and historian Fania Oz-Salzberger roam the gamut of Jewish history to explain the integral relationship of Jews and words. Through a blend of storytelling and scholarship, conversation and argument, father and daughter tell the tales behind Judaism’s most enduring names, adages, disputes, texts, and quips. These words, they argue, compose the chain connecting Abraham with the Jews of every subsequent generation. Framing the discussion within such topics as continuity, women, timelessness, and individualism, Oz and Oz-Salzberger deftly engage Jewish personalities across the ages, from the unnamed, possibly female author of the Song of Songs through obscure Talmudists to contemporary writers. They suggest that Jewish continuity, even Jewish uniqueness, depends not on central places, monuments, heroic personalities, or rituals but rather on written words and an ongoing debate between the generations. Full of learning, lyricism, and humor, Jews and Words offers an extraordinary tour of the words at the heart of Jewish culture and extends a hand to the reader, any reader, to join the conversation. /div

« La jeune fille et la femme, dans l'épanouissement actuel qui est le leur, n'imiteront qu'un temps les bonnes et les mauvaises manières des hommes et n'adopteront qu'un temps leurs métiers », écrivait Rilke, pressentant que les périodes transitoires et incertaines ne dureraient pas. S'il était nécessaire que les femmes se défassent des conventions rigides d'une féminité imposée, elles sont aujourd'hui appelées à se redécouvrir refuge d'une vie intérieure immensément féconde. « Un jour (...) seront là la jeune fille et la femme dont le nom (...) n'évoquera ni complément, ni frontière, simplement vie et existence : l'être humain dans sa féminité », concluait le poète allemand dans sa prophétie. Et si ce temps était venu ? Il existe une multitude de façons d'être femme, les visages en sont variés et étonnants. Mais comment accéder à cet « être femme » ? À travers le corps, la vie émotionnelle, la découverte de ses talents, la vie spirituelle, l'auteur propose une exploration talentueuse du féminin comme point d'équilibre du monde et invite chaque femme à s'approcher de son propre mystère en retrouvant le sens du désir. Claire de Saint Lager signe ici son premier essai. Née en 1985, diplômée de l'ESCP, après des études de lettres et d'histoire, elle participe à des programmes d'éducation au Cambodge et aux États-Unis. En lien avec l'association Frateli, elle conçoit « Inspire », projet lauréat de « La France s'engage », visant à accompagner l'orientation de lycéens de milieu modeste. Elle crée Isha Formation, parcours destinés aux femmes et aux jeunes filles (Graine de Femme) pour renouer avec le féminin.

A l’heure des replis communautaires et des identités figées, que signifie appartenir et transmettre ? Contrairement à ce qu’affirment tous les fondamentalismes, la transmission d’un héritage ne doit pas être une réplication à l’identique. Elle dépend d'une infidélité partielle, garante de surgissements inattendus, aujourd’hui comme hier. Mariant filiation et rupture, la tradition juive ne se renouvelle qu’en étant bousculée et nourrie par sa rencontre avec d'autres ; cela implique l’ouverture à l’Etranger, ainsi que l’ouverture au Féminin. Cet ouvrage est donc d’abord un plaidoyer pour une « religion matricielle » qui, à la manière d’un utérus, est un lieu de fertilisation. Les textes sacrés eux-mêmes y sont fécondés par des lectures inédites. Illustrant brillamment cette vision ouverte de la religion, Delphine Horvilleur revisite, loin des interprétations convenues, quelques épisodes fameux de la Genèse, notamment Adam et Eve, Caïn et Abel, l'histoire biblique des premiers parents et des premiers enfants de l'humanité. Elle montre aussi sa capacité à repenser les grands problèmes contemporains à partir de la tradition rabbinique. Trois thèmes sont successivement abordés : Comment, selon le judaïsme, se fabriquent un parent, une identité et un désir, c'est-à-dire la possibilité d'enfanter l'avenir. Procédant avec clarté et humour, citant aussi bien Emile Ajar et Amos Oz que la Genèse et le Talmud, elle conclut son livre par une analogie entre le Texte et le Féminin, dotés d’une même capacité de croître et de multiplier.

"Through the lens of her camera Myriam Tangi questions the spatial separation between men and women in the Jewish religion, whether it is materialized or not. The word mehitza is at the heart of this project's identity. The author's gaze is built from these photographs, cornerstones of an architecture that will take her to a yet unknown place, through a maze of questions, in which all aspects of human being are conjured up"--

"Often compared with Cleland's Fanny Hill and Sade's Justine and Juliette and dismissed by the more prurient critics as pornography, The Diary of a Chambermaid was written as a satire of Parisian society in the wake of the Dreyfus Affair. Mirbeau brings a journalist's analytical eye to Celestine's adventures as she loses her innocence and becomes as corrupt and depraved as the men who exploited her." "Since its publication in 1900 it has never ceased to shock and fascinate its readers and has been made into a film by Jean Renoir in 1946 and Luis Bunuel in 1964. It takes the essential message of Torture Garden a stage further by its greater realism."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

"Despite its outwardly static and traditional appearance, the Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) world is engaged in a constant cultural dialogue with modernity. This dialogue is exceptionally visible in the realm of language as shown in this study that examines the language and culture of four ultra-Orthodox groups found in Israel: the Ashkenazi (European) Mitnagdim-Lithuanians, and the Oriental Sefaradi Haredim. After the presentation of the historical background of the four sects, the author analyzes the public and private domains, focusing on language as used in many different forms and situations, and on the management of language. He furthermore compares the language policies of British, American, and French Haredim belonging to the Habad, Gur, Mitnagdic and Sefaradi sects to those in Israel and finds many similarities between the groups. The book concludes with the proposal of an interdisciplinary model, based on the Haredi case study, which can be used by language planners worldwide to understand the issues of language maintenance and loss among ethnic and ethno-religious minorities."--Publisher's website.

ISBN: 9004170391
Pages: 409
Year: 2008
Combining theoretical and empirical pieces, this book explores the emerging theoretical work seeking to describe hybrid identities while also illustrating the application of these theories in empirical research.The sociological perspective of this volume sets it apart. Hybrid identities continue to be predominant in minority or immigrant communities, but these are not the only sites of hybridity in the globalized world. Given a compressed world and a constrained state, identities for all individuals and collective selves are becoming more complex. The hybrid identity allows for the perpetuation of the local, in the context of the global. This book presents studies of types of hybrid identities: transnational, double consciousness, gender, diaspora, the third space, and the internal colony. Contributors include: Keri E. Iyall Smith, Patrick Gun Cuninghame, Judith R. Blau, Eric S. Brown, Fabienne Darling-Wolf, Salvador Vidal-Ortiz, Melissa F. Weiner, Bedelia Nicola Richards, Keith Nurse, Roderick Bush, Patricia Leavy, Trinidad Gonzales, Sharlene Hesse-Biber, Emily Brooke Barko, Tess Moeke-Maxwell, Helen Kim, Bedelia Nicola Richards, Helene K.
