Abstract

L'immigration donne lieu à de nombreux débats d'où l'anthropologie est assez souvent absente. Cela tient sans doute à ce que d'autres disciplines occupent le devant de la scène. En même temps, l'étude des phénomènes migratoires privilégie les ressortissants du Maghreb. Ce cahier présente un point de vue anthropologique sur l'immigration où les populations originaires des pays du Maghreb aussi bien que d'Italie ou de l'Europe de l'Est (les Tziganes) sont prises en considération dans une perspe...

Abstract

Este volumen recoge el esfuerzo de dos historiadores franceses por analizar el peso de la tradición religiosa en la cultura política decimónica de nuestro país. En esta perspectiva se enfoca tres momentos de un mismo fenómeno denominado ""revolución conservadora de fundamento religioso"": la insurrección de Quito (1809-1812); la derrota de un dirigente progresista, Vicente Rocafuerte (1835-1843); y la dictadura católica de García Moreno (1859- 1875). ""¿Por qué los primeros movimientos independ...

Abstract

« Découverte » dans les années 1990, avec l'ascension d'Anthony Giddens, la sociologie anglaise avait jusque là évolué dans l'ombre de ses homologues américaine, allemande et française. Ce livre propose d'exhumer le passé méconnu de cette discipline qui s'est développée dans une large mesure à l'écart des institutions académiques. Retraçant deux siècles d'enquêtes et de recherches, il révèle la construction originale de cette sociologie, en relation étroite avec les problèmes de pauvreté et les politiques destinées à les combattre, de l'assistance publique au welfare state. C'est là, en effet, le creuset de son identité et la source de son étonnante fécondité, qui ne s'est jamais tarie depuis ses origines. Ce livre tente de restituer cette trajectoire singulière, mêlant étroitement science et politique sociales.

Abstract

Le mot ""Renaissance"" est une source intarissable de malentendus. Il suggère, tout à la fois, une ère nouvelle et le rétablissement d'une situation antérieure, la métamorphose et le retour du même. De là découlent des ambiguïtés que rien ne souligne mieux que les multiples façons dont l'époque qui a reçu ce nom réagit à l'idée même de la nouveauté. On serait tenté de croire qu'elle lui fit bon accueil. Il semble qu'il n'en fut rien. Placée par une longue et prestigieuse historiographie sous le...

Abstract

The aim of the present volume is to discuss the notion of constitution from the perspectives of history of political thought. Its scholarly intention is to go beyond the approach concentrating on the formal understanding of constitution and bring forward more complex historical and philosophic-political interpretations. Our point of departure was the need to revive the somehow neglected distinction between the idea of constitution as an act of conscious law-giving activity and the notion of constitution conceived as the set of fundamental political rules derived from the very nature of political regime and its historical development.

Abstract

Examining materials from early modern and contemporary North India and Pakistan, Tellings and Texts brings together seventeen first-rate papers on the relations between written and oral texts, their performance, and the musical traditions these performances have entailed. The contributions from some of the best scholars in the field cover a wide range of literary genres and social and cultural contexts across the region. By doing so this book sheds light into theoretical issues of more general significance, such as textual versus oral norms; the features of oral performance and improvisation; the role of the text in performance; the aesthetics and social dimension of performance; the significance of space in performance history and important considerations on repertoires of music, literature and dramatization. Tellings and Texts is essential reading for anyone with an interest in South Asian culture and, more generally, in the theory and practice of oral literature, performance and storytelling.

Ce livre se propose de fournir un éclairage de la question, à partir de contributions d'orientalistes allemands et fran...

Abstract

"In their study of social practices deemed traditional, scholars tend to use the concept and idea of tradition as an element of meaning in the practices under investigation. But just whose meaning is it? Is it a meaning generated by those who study tradition or those whose traditions are being studied? In both cases, particular criteria for traditionality are employed, whether these are explicated or not. Individuals and groups will no doubt continue to uphold their traditional practices or refer to their practices as traditional. While they are in no way obliged to explicate in analytical terms their criteria for traditionality, the same cannot be said for those who make the study of traditions their profession. In scholarly analysis, traditions need to be explained instead of used as explanations for apparent repetitions and replications or symbolic linking in social practice, values, history, and heritage politics. This book takes a closer look at ‘tradition’ and ‘folklore’ in order to conceptualize them within discourses on modernity and modernism. The first section discusses ‘modern’ and ‘traditional’ as modern concepts and the study of folklore as a modern trajectory. The underlying tenet here is that non-modernity cannot be represented without modern mediation, which therefore makes the representations of non-modernity epistemologically modern. The second section focuses on the nation-state of Finland and the nationalistic use of folk traditions in the discursive production of Finnish modernity and its Others. The insights are applicable worldwide in discussions on cultural representation. "
