Screens and inequalities. “Arabs” in French medias from 1962 till our days<br />
Research project in humanities and social sciences, ScrIns aims to explore, from a historical and multidisciplinary perspective, the inequalities against «Arabs« in the French media since the end of the war in Algeria. The project stresses on the one hand the delay of French research on the subject of inequality in film and television. On the other hand, he notes the recurrence of this theme over the past ten years, both in the public debate in the field of politics.
ECRIN aims - by studying the imaginary reflected by television screens and film - to determine the evolution of inequality concerning the representation of the «Arabs«. The specific objectives of the project are: To investigate inequalities in the media treatment of «Arabs« in a historical perspective with the creation of a database and sustainable «editorialized« Determining the relationship between perceived inequities and inequalities experienced through surveys field experiences and social and cognitive psychology; Studying the emergence of renewed image and counter-stereotypes.
The expected theoretical results are : the renewal of approaches to minority representation through multidisciplinary analysis, and the stimulation of research with the invitation of foreign researchers as well as comparative studies.
The expected practical results are : a database linked to the sustainable Inathèque and «MedMem«, a website, two books, publications in scientific journals, a dozen seminars and two workshops, the dissemination of results the scientific community and civil society, training of trainers.
One of the project objectives is to enlist the expertise of researchers in the European research seminars and due to the delay observed by the French research on this topic. The latter stimulate, promote and comparative perspectives, build a European research network from the perspective of sustainability will be the main goals of the project. North America on the subject.
Publications (scientific books and research papers), production of video and documentary film are expected.
Research project in human and social sciences, ECRIN proposes to study, from a historical perspective and with a multidisciplinary approach, the observed inequalities against "Arabs" in the French media since the end of the Algerian war. The project makes two observations : the delay of the French research on the topic of inequalities in television and films on the one hand, and secondly the recurrence of this theme over the past ten years both in the public and political debates. The objective of ECRIN is to determine the evolution of these inequalities about an emblematic stereotype since five decades symbolized by the omnipresence of the "immigration issue" and the rise of the "screen culture". Therefore, the project aims to study the ability of the society to accept, thanks to its mediatic production, the presence of an immigrant represented as marginal or even antagonistic during a long period. Taking into account the theoretical knowledges of the consortium about the prolonged tension in the representation of migrants and specifically the "Arab", it seems necessary to study the construction of this deficit of equality pointed out by citizens. ECRIN wishes to demonstrate the possible naturalization of discrimination against "Arabs" in different historical periods, their appearance in the media, and thus provide a perspective in the present time.
