The Syrian tragedy and its impact on the body
EU-funded SYRBODY is one of the first attempts to approach the body in the Syrian context. It aims to develop a contextual philosophy by drawing upon psychoanalysis, art and literature to study the effects of the destruction the body undergoes in a context of extreme violence. It also explores the bodily dynamics of resistance and resilience in a multidisciplinary perspective based on works of art, testimonies and fictions. The fieldwork is mainly conducted at the Institut Français du Proche-Orient in Beirut (CNRS), and the conceptual work at the Centre d’Etudes et de Recherches Interdisciplinaires en Lettres Arts Cinéma in Paris (Université de Paris).
