100 Years of Greater Lebanon

One hundred years since the fall of the Ottoman Empire and since the establishment of the nation-states, Lebanon is still struggling with its existence as a nation-state. Since October 17, 2019, it has been shaken by major movements of protest and by an unprecedented economic crisis.

“To commemorate the genesis of the State of Lebanon in 1920 or not?”, wonders Carla Eddé, historian, in the preamble to her article. First, we had to take a look back at the recent history of the birth of modern Lebanon and its intricate ties with Syria, starting from the historical foundations with Carla Eddé, Youssef Mouawad and Jack Keilo. Then, drawing on a literary and artistic corpus, the second part of this issue follows the traumatic memory of the birth of Lebanon focusing on the process of historical repression and the dramatic shift from the “non-Ottoman” identity to the Lebanese identity (with Rita Bassil), then a review of the traumatized memory of the Civil War based on a broad literary journey (with Carole André-Dessornes), furthered by a psychoanalytical insight that probes the Lebanese inability to process the wounds of their past, starting with the uprising of October 17, 2019 (with Marie-Thérèse Badaoui Khair). Finally, the third part allows us to examine the current events in Lebanon. Interviewed by Rita Bassil, economist Samir Aïta gives us his analysis of the factors that would have led, according to him, to the collapse of Lebanon and ponders the ways out that would protect the most vulnerable. Moreover, this allows him to shed light on the close economic ties between his home country, Syria, and Lebanon. Lastly, the last article of the issue, penned by Stephanie Raad, explores the politics of partition in the Middle East, operated during the twentieth century.

At the close of this issue, in the midst of the current din on social networks. A very relevant article by Maguy Saad analyzes the distinction that should be made between electronic rumor (e-rumor) and viral marketing.
