University of spring 2008 and 2010

University of spring in the city of Ghardaïa

The university of spring is the right opportunity for students-researchers to enforce differents process of research and to acquire their own experience of places and objects.

Our perspective is to direct students towards the field of invistigation rich in field material and anthropological objects. Ghardaïa city has this anthropological wealth that allows to develop several questions.

In fact, this space is characterized by an identity affiliation from the local population to a religious fraction (Mozabite). That is known by his merchant culture, their customs and traditions marqued by the Iadism.

The commercial activity is constantly under development and, more and more has created, a social dynamic in various economic bazaars.

Thus, the particularity of this population incites strongly, the researchers to describe some behaviours, directly with the exercise of these communities. Furthermore, the dress style represents either, avery specific fields of investigation, because the local population is distinguished by an outfit symbolizing at the same time.

For our students – researchers, All of these anthropological indicators constitutes a principle source of description and analysis , other field field of investigation, to study other historical and cultural aspects, such as : (the social change and its impact on family structures ; women in public spaces (for example : Le Hammam – The bath)

The treatment of these topics in city of Ghardaïa has a methodological contribution for our students because their contact with social space its permits to develop all questions directly with their topic of research and for use of techniques of research, such as the observation and the practice of dialogue.
