Liberating Histories makes an original, scholarly contribution to contemporary debates surrounding the cultural and political relevance of historical practices. Arguing against the idea that specifically historical readings of the past are necessary or are compelled by the force of past events themselves, this book instead focuses on other forms of past-talk and how they function in politically empowering ways against social injustices. Challenging the authority and constraints of academic history over the past, this book explores various forms of past-talk, including art, films, activism, memory, nostalgia and archives. Across seven clear chapters, Claire Norton and Mark Donnelly show how activists and campaigners have used forms of past-talk to unsettle `common sense' thinking about political and social problems, how journalists, artists, curators, filmmakers and performers have referenced the past in their practices of advocacy, and how grassroots archivists help to circulate materials that challenge the power of authorised institutional archives to determine what gets to count as a demonstrable feature of the past and whose voices are part of the `historical record'. Written in a lucid, accessible manner, and combining insightful critical analysis and philosophical argument with clear consideration of how different forms of past-talk influence the narration of pasts in a variety of socio-political contexts, Liberating Histories is essential reading for students and scholars with an interest in historiography and the ethical and political dimensions of the historical discipline.

In the modern age, post-Holocaust studies should embrace the variety of media and cultural channels available to enable the comprehension of the current population. When implementing these channels, individuals have to take into account a holistic approach to ensure all aspects of this area are integrated to ensure an inclusive understanding of the Holocaust. Post-Holocaust Studies in a Modern Context is a critical scholarly resource that explores the impact of post-Holocaust issues on current social issues across the globe such as the Western approach to immigration and the shaping and reshaping of national ethos across the globe. Featuring a wide range of topics such as millennials, cultural heritage, artistry, educational programs, and historical experience, this book is a vital resource for students, professors, researchers, and readers of popular social science interested in the fate of the Jewish people and the sociological forces that influence the post-WWII era.

  • 1914: des grandes certitudes aux désillusions -- 1915-1917: la Guerre des Tranchées. Lorsque le feu enterre les hommes et leurs illusions -- Vives ou mortes : histoire d'eaux dans la Grande Guerre -- Percer sous terre : la Grande Guerre des taupes -- Puiser sous terre : le nerf de la Guerre -- Le rideau se baisse sur le théâtre des opérations -- Les géologues face à l'héritage de la Grande Guerre.
"1923 Alors que se sont tus les canons, les sinistrés s'affairent à la reconstruction. La grande grêle métallurgique crachée par les bouches à feu venait de rayer de la surface du globe des millions d'hommes et leurs maisons. Dorgelès laisse alors courir sa plume dans le dédale des ruines et publie Le réveil des Morts décrivant ces quatre ans d'érosion anthropique "comme autant de siècles d'abandon". Un infinitésimal intervalle de temps qui a pourtant marqué de son empreinte les échelles historiques et géologiques. Il revit le chaos de 14-18 et la furie du métal courroucé, les soldats qui ont dû s'enterrer pour survivre, simplement vivre, boire et manger. Ils ignoraient peut-être alors leurs nouveaux et inattendus alliés qui ont su jongler avec les éléments devenus majeurs par la force des choses: la terre, l'eau et le feu. Ce sont les géologues. Sortis des tranchées, ils ont transmis leur savoir et conseillé en quoi le monde souterrain peut être profitable ou préjudiciable aux militaires. Au travers d'une riche collecte archivistique et d'une collaboration transfrontalière, l'auteur invite le lecteur à le suivre dans le récit de pans méconnus de la Grande Guerre, comment pour le première fois, l'environnement souterrain a été intégré dans les actes de guerre mais aussi comment cette guerre a durablement marqué l'environnement. Un héritage, parfois amer, auquel les géologues de notre temps s'affairent. Un document incontournable qui éclaire autant l'histoire que les sciences de la Terre, au-delà des frontières."--Page 4 of cover.

The revolutions that swept across Europe in 1848 marked a turning-point in the history of political and social thought. They raised questions of democracy, nationhood, freedom and social cohesion that have remained among the key issues of modern politics, and still help to define the major ideological currents - liberalism, socialism, republicanism, anarchism, conservatism - in which these questions continue to be debated today. This collection of essays by internationally prominent historians of political thought examines the 1848 Revolutions in a pan-European perspective, and offers research on questions of state power, nationality, religion, the economy, poverty, labour, and freedom. Even where the revolutionary movements failed to achieve their explicit objectives of transforming the state and social relations, they set the agenda for subsequent regimes, and contributed to the shaping of modern European thought and institutions.

In 2018, the world will be commemorating the centenary of the end of the First World War. In many ways, 1918 was the most dramatic year of the conflict. After the defeat of Russia in 1917, the Germans were able to concentrate their forces on the Western Front for the first time in the war, and the German offensives launched from March 1918 onward brought the Western Allies close to defeat. Having stopped the German offensives, the Entente started its counter-attacks on all fronts with the assistance of fresh US troops, driving the Germans back and, by November 1918, the Central Powers had been defeated. This new study is a multi-author work containing ten chapters by some of the best historians of the First World War from around the world writing today. It provides an overview and analysis of the different levels of war for each of the main armies involved within the changing context of the reality of warfare in 1918. It also looks in detail at the war at sea and in the air, and considers the aftermath and legacy of the First World War.

"On discute encore de ce qui serait la traduction la plus pertinente du chef-d'oeuvre de Tolstoï : La guerre et la paix, où l'article défini aiguille vers une application limitée de ces termes, Guerre et paix qui, sans plus de déterminant, maximalise le jeu de ce couple antinomique en étendant l'horizon de son intervention ou, à faire jouer l'homonymie que sollicite la langue russe. La guerre et le inonde, extension de champ terrifiante qui fait de la guerre un universel, donnant au passage la clé des rapports de subordination qui unissent guerre et paix ? Héraclite l'avait déjà dit : "Polémos est le père de toutes choses". Un "monstre cruel" qu'Aristophane dénonce en pleine guerre sur la scène athénienne pour avoir dérobé et emmuré la Paix au fond d'une caverne profonde d'où le choeur des Panhellènes repentis s'employait à la récupérer pour toujours. Sans polémique, mais sans se faire non plus illusion sur l'irénisme, cc volume envisage sur deux millénaires une dialectique de la guerre et de la paix qui prend la forme d'une succession de conflits à peine entrecoupés de paix qui ont la fragilité d'armistices, nonobstant, depuis l'abbé de Saint-Pierre jusqu'à Kant, force projets de paix perpétuelle dont l'esprit a soufflé sur les organismes chargés d'assurer la sécurité collective, de la SDN à l'ONU. Avec plus ou moins de réussite. Loin du bruit des armes, impuissantes à imposer la paix, les auteurs explorent ici d'autres pistes, qui tiennent à la mémoire des conflits, plaidant pour une gestion sans amnistie et sans amnésie de ces enjeux. Les dix contributions ici réunies sont issues d'un cycle de conférences organisé en 2014, 2015 et 2016, dans le cadre du festival annuel Patrimoine en Domitienne à l'initiative du Parc Culturel du Biterrois dont l'activité, en valorisant les ressources patrimoniales, s'attache à diffuser les avancées de la recherche en prise avec les grands enjeux de société."--Page 4 of cover.

Gabriel Silva Luján, con sus columnas, y Matador, con sus caricaturas, dos agudos opinadores sobre el acontecer nacional e internacional se unen en este libro para dar un panorama, cada uno desde su particular mirada, de los hechos que han sido noticia a lo largo de los últimos cinco años. Matador aporta su lápiz, su genio e independencia para retratar con humor desde los sucesos cotidianos hasta los más insólitos, indignantes o dolorosos. Silva aporta la amplia y profunda visión de una autoridad en política y economía con una brillante carrera en el sector público, que no deja de lado su sentir de ciudadano. Así pues, cada tema se narra a tres voces: los titulares de las noticias publicadas en El Tiempo que dan cuenta de los hechos, la caricatura de Matador y la columna de Gabriel Silva que en su momento aparecieron en este diario. Un libro que invita "no tragar entero" y crear un criterio propio sobre las realidades del país y del mundo. El proceso de paz, la oposición, la reforma tributaria, los presidenciales, los tratados de libre comercio, la calidad de la educación, la justicia, Trump, Venezuela, el Brexit son tan solo algunos de los temas que se abordan aquí.

This book examines the ways in which scholarly expertise was mobilized during the First World War, and the consequences of this for the inter-connected academic world that had developed in the late nineteenth century. Adopting a strong international approach, the contributors to this volume examine the impact of the War on individuals, institutions, and disciplines, cumulatively demonstrating the strong afterlife of conflict for scholarly practices and academic communities across Europe and North America, in the decades following the cessation of the Great War.

In the crusader period Acre was in many ways a remarkable place, but the most striking thing about its history is the number of times it fell to enemies. The present volume Acre and Its Falls is unusual in that it analyses a wide range of aspects of the history of Acre across the crusader period, combining political, military and cultural history, with a notable emphasis on the memory of the city in Europe. This may have been a city famous for its falls, but most certainly not for them alone. Contributors are Adrian J. Boas, Charles W. Connell, Paul F. Crawford, Susan B. Edgington, Marie-Luise Favreau-Lilie, John France, Anna Gilmour-Bryson, John D. Hosler, Georg Philipp Melloni, Janus Moller Jensen, J. Rubin, and Iris Shagrir.
