"Entre XVe et XXe siècle, la colonisation a touché tour à tour les Amériques, l'Afrique, l'Asie et l'Océanie. Romain Bertrand réinscrit chacun de ces "moments coloniaux" dans l'histoire longue, en tentant de conférer une égale dignité documentaire aux sources européennes et extra-européennes. Son but : nous faire connaître un peu mieux, enfin, "les mille et une manières d'être humain et de faire société qui ont éclos en chaque recoin de la planète depuis l'âge moderne"--Page 4 of cover.

"Le sport est devenu un phénomène mondialisé. Il a conquis le monde en l'espace d'un siècle ; qu'il soit pratiqué ou regardé, il prend une place croissante dans nos vies ; vecteur efficace de "softpower", il est souvent au coeur d'enjeux géopolitiques. Comme spectacle, le sport suscite de forts intérêts économiques et médiatiques. Mais il est également devenu un outil d'aménagement des territoires. Le sport est un objet passionnant pour lire et comprendre le monde contemporain. [...]" (fourth page of cover).

The modern age is no stranger to the cabinet of curiosities, the freak show, or a drawer full of odds and ends. These collections of oddities engagingly work against the rationality and order of the conventional archive found in a university, a corporation, or a governmental holding. In form, methodology, and content, The Year's Work in the Oddball Archive offers a counterargument to a more reasoned form of storing and recording the avant-garde (or the post-avant-garde), the perverse, the off, the bent, the absurd, the quirky, the weird, and the queer. To do so, it positions itself within the history of mirabilia launched by curiosity cabinets starting in the mid-fifteenth century and continuing to the present day. These archives (or are they counter-archives?) are located in unexpected places-the doorways of Katrina homes, the cavity of a cow, the remnants of extinct animals, an Internet site-and they offer up "alternate modes of knowing" to the traditional archive.
