Links: Week19’16


Several years ago I posted three entries to share some interesting links with PoF’s readers:

I decided to resume this series on a more regular basis. This is an experiment and I hope I can keep it up with a weekly occurrence but no promise here. I’ll share links to online content closely or remotely related to Algeria which I think would interest you. Don’t expect all the content to be in English, most of the production related to Algeria is not in this language. A blog category (Links) is also created to allow you to browse through the “links” posts.

So here we go for this week.

Yassine Temlali : “On peut se sentir berbère ou non, arabe ou non, musulman ou non et être, néanmoins, algérien”. An interview with Yassine Temlali who makes some valid points as always. And I absolutely recommend his book “La Genèse de la Kabylie, aux origines de l’affirmation berbère“.

Algerians and the First World War by historian Gilbert Meynier. Here you can read a letter sent by Emir Khaled (Emir Abdelkader‘s grandson) to USA’s president Wilson in 1919.

“Le Boucher de Guelma”, un des premiers romans retraçant les massacres du 8 mai 1945. A short review by Algerian blogger Nadia Ghanem of Zamponi’s historical novel “Le Boucher de Guelma” which speaks of the 8 May 1945 massacres. Nadia will perhaps want to write an English version of it.

Djemaa Maazouzi et le partage des mémoires. Interview of Djemaa Maazouzi (former journalist, worked with La Tribune and LQO) who speaks of her book based on her PhD thesis which dealt with the memories of the War of Independence retained by French Pieds-Noirs, Harkis and Algerian immigrants in France. Her thesis was co-directed by historian Benjamin Stora.

The Algerian constitution translated into Tamazight by the High Commission for Amazigh (HCA)

Konrad Adenauer Foundation’s poll results. The foundation which is associated with Germany’s Christian Democratic Union polled North African people on questions around religion and politics. As usual, commentators pick the answer to one question and make all the conclusions they wish… I let you draw yours.

Who rules the world? Part one of an excerpt from Noam Chomsky’s new book.

And last, a cat rescue in Oran this week
