This book represents a selection of papers presented by academics and researchers at the 12th Conference on British and American Studies. They are grouped in two main theme clusters, corresponding to the two chapters of the book: Languages in Contact and Languages in Use and Multidisciplinarity and Multiculturalism in Literary Studies. In the first section, language is described, in turn, as subject to influence by other language systems, as an object of learning and acquisition, and as an instrument enabling users to bridge between cultures, disciplinary domains, and people. The second part of the volume is mainly concerned with such notions as hybridity, tolerance, identity, subversion and deconstruction, as reflected in classical and contemporary Anglo-American literary texts.

  • La veille de la campagne -- Les partisans de la campagne de France : mythe ou réalité ? -- La fin de l'Empire français en 1814 -- La conscription des années sombres et le devenir de l'institution (1813-1814) -- Napoléon et la campagne de France dans la pensée militaire -- La marche des alliés vers la victoire -- L'autre visage de la campagne de France : Napoléon face aux désordres de l'armée -- La campagne du Midi. Regard d'un officier britannique -- Un tsar en Champagne -- La prudence autrichienne à l'origine de la défaite de Napoléon? -- 30 mars 1814 : la bataille de Paris, -- Conséquences de la campagne sur les territoires -- La campagne de France et son impact sur les territoires : état des lieux des fonds d'archives publiques -- Les populations civiles et les tourments de la guerre -- Troyes dans la tourmente de 1814 -- Lyon et sa région dans la défaite -- L'empire en question -- Joseph Bonaparte en 1814 : l'impossible conciliation -- Marie-Louise régente -- Quel successeur pour Napoléon? -- Les premiers pas d'un nouveau régime -- De 1814 à aujourd'hui -- 1814 dans la littérature -- 1814 dans l'iconographie -- Propos sur un bicentenaire.
"En dépit de son issue tragique, la campagne de France constitue un chapitre de choix du livre d'heures de la mythologie napoléonienne. Avec à peine cinquante mille hommes, l'Aigle " rechausse ses bottes de 93 " et remporte à un contre dix une série de victoires éclatantes avant de tomber, victime des intrigues de Talleyrand et de la trahison des maréchaux. Pour donner enfin sa place à l'histoire, Patrice Gueniffey et Pierre Branda ont rassemblé autour d'eux les meilleurs historiens de la période. Ils analysent et racontent tous les aspects, politiques, diplomatiques, sociétaux, mémoriels et naturellement militaires, d'une guerre de cent jours, en ayant également soin d'ouvrir le propos à des problématiques jamais traitées, comme l'engagement des alliés ou l'histoire régionale. Ils démontrent enfin comment le draine est devenu mythe dans une dernière partie consacrée à la postérité de 1814. Publié à l'initiative du Département de l'Aube et avec le soutien , de la Fondation Napoléon, cet ouvrage de référence manquait ; il change les perceptions sur le crépuscule du roman de la vie napoléonienne."--Page 4 of cover.

These proceedings collect the selected contributions of participants of the First Karl Schwarzschild Meeting on Gravitational Physics, held in Frankfurt, Germany to celebrate the 140th anniversary of Schwarzschild's birth. They are grouped into 4 main themes: I. The Life and Work of Karl Schwarzschild; II. Black Holes in Classical General Relativity, Numerical Relativity, Astrophysics, Cosmology, and Alternative Theories of Gravity; III. Black Holes in Quantum Gravity and String Theory; IV. Other Topics in Contemporary Gravitation. Inspired by the foundational principle "By acknowledging the past, we open a route to the future", the week-long meeting, envisioned as a forum for exchange between scientists from all locations and levels of education, drew participants from 15 countries across 4 continents. In addition to plenary talks from leading researchers, a special focus on young talent was provided, a feature underlined by the Springer Prize for the best student and junior presentations.
