Women on the margins : three seventeenth-century lives by Natalie Zemon Davis( Book )

43 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 1,337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As she did with Martin Guerre, Natalie Zemon Davis here retrieves individual lives from historical obscurity to give us a window onto the early modern world. As women living in the seventeenth century, Glikl bas Judah Leib, Marie de l'Incarnation, and Maria Sibylla Merian, equally remarkable though very different, were not queens or noblewomen, their every move publicly noted. Rather, they were living "on the margins" in seventeenth-century Europe, North America, and South America. Yet these women - one Jewish, one Catholic, one Protestant - left behind memoirs and writings that make for a spellbinding tale and that, in Davis' deft narrative, tell us more about the life of early modern Europe than many an official history. All these women were originally city folk. Glikl bas Judah Leib was a merchant of Hamburg and Metz whose Yiddish autobiography blends folktales with anecdotes about her two marriages, her twelve children, and her business. Marie de L'Incarnation, widowed young, became a mystic visionary among the Ursuline sisters and cofounder of the first Christian school for Amerindian women in North America. Maria Sibylla Merian, a German painter and naturalist, produced an innovative work on tropical insects based on lore she gathered from the Carib, Arawak, and African women of Suriname. The resulting triptych suggests the range of experience, self-consciousness, and expression possible in seventeenth-century Europe and its outposts. It also shows how persons removed from the centers of power and learning ventured in novel directions, modifying in their own way Europe's troubled and ambivalent relations with other "marginal" peoples
Trickster travels : a sixteenth-century Muslim between worlds by Natalie Zemon Davis( Book )

39 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Al-Hasan al-Wazzan--born in Granada to a Muslim family that in 1492 went to Morocco--became famous as the great Renaissance writer Leo Africanus, author of the first geography of Africa to be published in Europe (in 1550). He had been captured by Christian pirates in the Mediterranean and imprisoned by the pope; when he was released and baptized, he lived a European life of scholarship as the Christian writer Giovanni Leone; by 1527, it is likely that he returned to North Africa and to the language, culture, and faith in which he had been raised. Historian Davis offers a virtuoso study of the fragmentary, partial, and often contradictory traces that al-Hasan al-Wazzan left behind him, and a fresh interpretation of his extraordinary life and work.--From publisher description.--From publisher description
Slaves on screen : film and historical vision by Natalie Zemon Davis( Book )

26 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tackles the large issue of how the moving picture industry has portrayed slaves in five major motion pictures spanning four generations. The potential of film to narrate the historical past in an effective and meaningful way, with insistence on loyalty to the evidence, is assessed in five films; Spartacus (1960), Burn! (1969), The Last Supper (1976), Amistad (1997), and Beloved (1998)."--Jacket

The gift in sixteenth-century France by Natalie Zemon Davis( Book )

43 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet essai montre que le don dans la France du XVIe siècle est présent à tous les niveaux, de la générosité royale à la charité envers le mendiant. Il prend alors une haute signification, toute évaluation sociale des personnes les unes par rapport aux autres passe par la mesure du don. Par celle-ci, l'auteur montre la nature des sociétés d'Ancien Régime et ce qu'il en demeure aujourd'hui

The allure of the archives by Arlette Farge( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arlette Farge's Le Goût de l'archive is widely regarded as a historiographical classic. While combing through two-hundred-year-old judicial records from the Archives of the Bastille, historian Farge was struck by the extraordinarily intimate portrayal they provided of the lives of the poor in pre-Revolutionary France, especially women. She was seduced by the sensuality of old manuscripts and by the revelatory power of voices otherwise lost. In The Allure of the Archives, she conveys the exhilaration of uncovering hidden secrets and the thrill of venturing into new dimensions of the past
