Link to article: http://goo.gl/QenqzS In this video Jordanna discusses her forthcoming article in Antipode 46:3, "Narratives of Modernity, Masculinity and Citizenship amid Crisis in Abidjan's Sorbonne." She situates the Sorbonne, a public speaking area in the center of Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, within the context of the political and military conflict that led to its rise and ultimate demise. Next, she positions the Sorbonne as a social space where men reframed the crisis narrative and their place in it, drawing on a legacy of Abidjan as the "Paris of West Africa" to articulate themes of modernity, masculinity and citizenship. Literally and ideologically, predominantly un- and underemployed men centered themselves from the global and urban periphery. They enacted hyperbolized modern masculinities in opposition to their former French colonizers and migrants from regional countries. Jordanna divides her article in two parts. In the first, she reviews the crisis literature in the African city with a focus on informality and gendered conceptions of work. In the second, she analyzes Sorbonne sociality under the rubric of politics, a space where men placed themselves and the city at the center of global affairs; poverty, a place where men shared in their experience of poverty while simultaneously generating fantasized identities within a community of insiders; and penises, a masculinist and misogynist space where men asserted their rightful place in the city as men and citizens. Jordanna is a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse. She studies the livelihoods and lifestyles of men in Abidjan's informal economy. In addition to Antipode she has published in, among other places, Poetics, Contexts, Ethnography, The Black Scholar, Global Dialogue and The Africa Report. She is currently preparing her book manuscript, tentatively titled, "'I will be VIP!': Culture, politics and masculinity on neoliberalism's periphery."

One of the 20th century’s most prolific scholars of Islamic mysticism, Henry Corbin (1903-1978) was Professor of Islam & Islamic Philosophy at the Sorbonne in Paris and at the University of Tehran. (Iran) Corbin’s central project was to provide a framework for understanding the unity of the religions of the Book: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. His great work: “Alone with the Alone: Creative Imagination in the Sufism of Ibn ‘Arabi “is a classic initiatory text of visionary spirituality that transcends the tragic divisions among the three great monotheisms. Corbin’s life was devoted to the struggle to free the religious imagination from fundamentalisms of every kind. Mystic, philosopher, poet, sage, Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi is one of the world's great spiritual teachers. Ibn 'Arabi was born in Murcia, Spain in 1165 and his writings had an immense impact throughout the Islamic world and beyond. The universal ideas underlying his thought are of immediate relevance today. Music: Armand Amar

Just some thoughts before moving abroad. I moved from Miami to Paris at the age of 25 speaking 0 to no french. Why? For the romance, of course.. Some helpful tips: Monoprix is more of an expensive grocery store like Target. Bio C Bon= Wholefoods (They do a large paper bag that is full of seasonal fruits and vegetables weekly this a better buy than buying them individually!!) Better priced grocery stores are Lidl (Like Aldi's), Simply, and Carrefour (not carrefour city) Found my nanny job on nounou-top.fr I go to metro Chateau D'eau to get my hair done ;) An abundance of Black salons there. fusac.fr is a helpful site for english speaking expats in France The language School I went to: http://www.ccfs-sorbonne.fr/spip.php?article3495.html?check_lang=oui&lang=en IG: morayo.oshode

He is based at the Centre de Recherche en Epistemologie Appliquee (CREA) in Paris He teaches the Philosophy of Modern Physics to graduate students at the University Paris I (Pantheon-Sorbonne). He was educated at several universities in Paris, where he received successively his M.D. in 1980, his Ph.D. in physics and biophysics in 1985, and his "Habilitation" in philosophy in 1997. Geshe Thupten Jinpa Geshe Thupten Jinpa is the principal English translator to the Dalai Lama since 1985. He has translated and edited more than ten books by the Dalai Lama including The World of Tibetan Buddhism (Wisdom Publications, 1993), A Good Heart: A Buddhist Perspective on the Teachings of Jesus (Wisdom Publications, 1996), and the New York Times bestseller Ethics for the New Millennium (Riverhead, 1999). Geshe Thupten Jinpa was born in Tibet in 1958. He received his early education and training as a monk at Zongkar Chöde Monastery in South India and later joined the Shartse College of Ganden monastic university, South India, where he received the Geshe Lharam degree. He taught Buddhist epistemology, metaphysics, Middle Way philosophy and Buddhist psychology at Ganden for five years. Jinpa also holds B.A. Honors degree in Western Philosophy and a Ph.D. degree in Religious Studies, both from Cambridge University, UK. Over the last several years, largely through the work of the Emory-Tibet Science Initiative, Science for Monks, and Science Meets Dharma, science instruction has been given to a small group of monastic scholars. Very recently, the decision was made to require science education for Geshe degrees at Tibetan monastic universities, and to facilitate all monastic students being introduced to modern science and the profound philosophical and ethical issues raised by science and technology. In recognition of this fact, this conference is taking place at one of the historically important Tibetan academic institutions, Drepung Monastery in Mundgod, India (Mind & Life Institute, 2013).
