Born in 1937 out of a pedagogical concern, the journal was originally targeted at the pupils of the Institute of Arab Belles-Lettres, Ibla (acronym for the Institute) grew to become an important item in Tunisian intellectual history. The history of this non-apostolic, apolitical publication parallels that of the evolution of the human sciences applied towards understanding Tunisian society, and the mutations of the mentioned society for the last fifty years. Alternating description and analysis, the article attempts to situate Ibla in the forum of journalistic literature, highlight its methods of investigation and its orientation across disciplines.
