The Remmm is a social sciences peer-reviewed journal which presents, in thematical issues, studies on the whole of the Muslim world in its diversity. Divided into two series, "History" and "Contemporary World", it brings together contributions on a given theme from specialists on the Maghreb and the Mashreq, the Iranian, Turkish and Ottoman worlds, the Balkans, African Islam, India and the Muslim Far East.

The open issues of the Remmm are half-yearly volumes in progress which publish reviews, free studies (Varia) and finally a complete dossier on the announced theme that closes the open issue.

Then it switches to the “Full text issues” section.


Past issues (1-1966 to 86-1999) are available in free access on the Persée website.

Vivre l'école : Dynamiques plurielles de construction des savoirs et des identités

School Life. Multiple Dynamics of Knowledge and Identity Construction
Edited by Chloé Pellegrini

Most studies on education in the Arab and Muslim worlds focus on the development of modern school systems after the independences, on the evolution of education and language policies, or on religious teaching in state schools or Qur’anic schools. Few researchers have documented everyday school life within schools in these regions.

This is why this special issue gathers papers by anthropologists, sociologists, and historians who all have in common to focus on school actors’ experiences, be they students, alumni, teachers, or parents, in different educative settings such as state schools, private local or international schools, and associative structures. The researches were conducted in different contexts: Arab countries (Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Morocco), Muslim countries (Iran, Turkey), and countries and territories where Muslim populations either have had a strong historical presence (Israel, Mayotte, Tanzania), or have an immigrant background (Italy).

This disciplinary and geographical diversity puts into dialogue school experiences that, beyond their specificities, resonate with each other. Papers show how school actors engage, negotiate, and interact within schools with identity, morality and citizenship training, knowledge, teaching and learning postures, and multiple secular and religious education models.

Research on the past of the Horn of Africa (Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somaliland), and more particularly of its Muslim societies, has undergone a significant revival over the past quarter century: a more refined and better established periodization is emerging and the historical geography, still very fragmentary, is beginning to take shape. The historiography devoted to the so-called medieval period, before the 16th century, has acquired a new coherence and visibility. The highlighting of the regional connections of the Horn of Africa in the Middle Ages places at the center of the investigation an actor who has remained on the fringe of the representations that modern Ethiopia has produced of its past since the end of the nineteenth century: Islam. But this revival is still in its initial stages. The articles gathered here illustrate the diversity of approaches to enrich the documentary corpus and continue to make progress in writing the history of Muslims in the Horn of Africa in the medieval period. Faced with the very few written sources produced in the Ethiopian Islamic context before the 19th century, it is necessary to have recourse to all types of sources at our disposal: exogenous sources (Yemeni and Egyptian), archaeology, the ge'ez texts of the Christian kingdom of Ethiopia, but also the memory of these societies among the populations of the region in the 19th and 20th centuries. It is only by crossing all these sources, approaches and methodologies that it will be possible to have a more precise picture of this history that is still largely unwritten.
