درويش خارج النص

[عند حاجز قلنديا. الصورة من الكاتبين]

خلال زيارته الأولى إلى فلسطين، وعند سؤاله عمّا يريد أن يرى في رام الله، أجاب ضيفنا الأسترالي المتخصص في الأدب ما بعد الاستعماري، من دون أي تردّد: قبرَي الرئيس ياسر عرفات ومحمود درويش. ليست الإجابة صدفية، فالأول يُقدّم على أنه أب الوطنية الفلسطينية والثاني شاعرها. هذا التزاوج بين السياسي والشعري في شخصيتي عرفات ودرويش تاريخياً جعلت البعض يتندر بوصف درويش "الشاعر العام" مقابل تعبير "القائد العام" الذي ارتبط بالراحل عرفات. هذا الارتباط الذي طالما جعل درويش صوت الثورة الشعري، أصبح بعد موته أحد عناصر بناء الشرعية الرمزية لمشروع بناء الدولة الذي بدأ يتمأسس بعد أوسلو ليصل ذروته مع وصول محمود عباس إلى رئاسة السلطة الفلسطينية، وتقدمه مؤخراً بعدد من الطلبات ...

إشكالية الفرد في المغرب

نسعى في هذا المقال أن نثير إشكالاً يكتسي قلقاً مفاهيمياً ومعرفياً،  من خلال  البعد القيمي الذي ساد مؤخراً عن طبيعة الفرد المغربي وكيفية فهمه لطبيعة وجوده والآفاق التي ينسجها ارتباطاً بهذا المعطى. ليس يسوغ أن نتحدث عن الفرد  بمعزل عن مضمونه التاريخي والفلسفي والحقوقي الذي رسخته التجربة التاريخية للإنسانية برمتها مع استحضار التفاوت الحضاري بين الأمم في هذا المجال، إذ هو في المحصلة النهائية منتوج أسهم فيه النسق الحضاري الخاص وتأثر بسياقات عامة ألزمته بسمات صاغت جانبا من أنماط تفكيره ووجهت بعضا من مساراته المستقبلية، هذا المسعى تتفاوت بشأنه التصورات والأفكار ارتباطاً بالرؤية المؤسسة للفعل بين المرجعيات على اختلاف مشاربها ، فإذا كانت الصيغة المثلى للفرد مرفوضة ...

Evolution and Debates about the Concept of Terrorism

[Israeli bombing of PLO headquarters in Tunis, 1985. Image by Israeli Air Force.]

The term “terrorism” has become a permanent fixture in US political vocabulary. However, as recently as the late 1970s this terminology was virtually absent from the rhetorical arsenal of US presidents. Today, people invoke the concept in ways that suggest its meaning is self-evident and consensual. In fact what is and is not described as “terroristic” in the American context is the result of a relatively recent and highly political process of meaning-making. In this process, specific voices and viewpoints have been allowed to shape and inform the totality of the discussion, while others were simply silenced.  The older debates were rekindled recently with the ...

الجسد والسلطة في السينما

لا ينج الحديث عن الثقافة والأدب والفنون، باعتبارهم "تعابير" ثقافية عن مجتمعاتها من سؤال "الجسد"، فإذا كان الفن يُنظر إليه "على أنه مرآة للقدرات البشرية في مرحلة تاريخية معينة، بوصفه الشكل المتفوق الذي تُعرف فيه ثقافة ما عن نفسها"، وجب علينا تناول تمثلات الجسد في كل هذه الأجناس الثقافية، باعتبارها أنماطًا خطابية، تعكس موضعه –الجسد- في الفكر والتعبير، وبالذات في عصر الصورة.  السينما، وهي مجال حديثنا هاهنا، تتأثر –كغيرها من أنماط الخطاب الثقافية- بانعكاسات الأوضاع ...
