The Statue of Liberty : a transatlantic story by Edward Berenson( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A universally recognized icon, the Statue of Liberty is perhaps the most beloved of all American symbols. Yet no one living in 1885, when the crated monument arrived in New York Harbor, could have foreseen the central place the Statue of Liberty would come to occupy in the American imagination. With the particular insights of a cultural historian and scholar of French history, Edward Berenson tells the little-known stories of the statue's improbable beginnings, transatlantic connections, and the changing meanings it has held for each successive American generation. --from publisher description
Populist religion and left-wing politics in France, 1830-1852 by Edward Berenson( Book )

Examining the democratic-socialist politics of the Second Republic, Edward Berenson delves into the largely unexplored content of the Montagnards' ideology and traces its diffusion and reception in the populist religious culture of rural France. This book shows how the urbanbased Montagnards were able to appeal to rural Frenchmen by advocating doctrines grounded in the ideals and morality of early Christianity. Originally published in 1984.

Constructing charisma : celebrity, fame, and power in nineteenth-century Europe by Edward Berenson( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Railroads, telegraphs, lithographs, photographs, and mass periodicals--the major technological advances of the 19th century seemed to diminish the space separating people from one another, creating new and apparently closer, albeit highly mediated, social relationships. Nowhere was this phenomenon more evident than in the relationship between celebrity and fan, leader and follower, the famous and the unknown. By mid-century, heroes and celebrities constituted a new and powerful social force, as innovations in print and visual media made it possible for ordinary people to identify with the famous; to feel they knew the hero, leader, or "star"; to imagine that public figures belonged to their private lives. This volume examines the origins and nature of modern mass media and the culture of celebrity and fame they helped to create. Crossing disciplines and national boundaries, the book focuses on arts celebrities (Sarah Bernhardt, Byron and Liszt); charismatic political figures (Napoleon and Wilhelm II); famous explorers (Stanley and Brazza); and celebrated fictional characters (Cyrano de Bergerac)

Writing Scandal Popular Media and the Bagnes d'Enfants, 1920-1945 by Kari Evanson( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The campaign for the reform of the juvenile justice system went beyond a simple turf war between specialists. The national press and certain key journalists were vocal players, while the cause also caught the attention of humanitarian organizations and literary figures such as Jacques Prevert and Jean Genet. These actors mobilized a variety of sources, from the traditional avenues of meetings and pamphlets, to newer forms of mobilization such as literary journalism, cinema, and the novel to tell the story of the disinherited child. What united this disparate group was the use of emotions such as compassion and indignation as well as the ability to link the plight of disinherited children to the larger question of the health of the Republic. By combining approaches from sociology, literary criticism, and cultural history, my dissertation project examines the discursive history of a reform movement, with an eye to illuminating how the court of public opinion was solicited and mobilized in the denunciation of juvenile prisons and defense of children's rights, thereby shedding light not only on social organization and deviance in the interwar period but also on modes of literary expression in the service of social change
Reactionary or Modern? The Devote in Fact and Fiction in Late Nineteenth-Century France by Rachel Marie Wimpee( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the lasting legacies of the Third Republic is its sweeping secularizing mission. My dissertation examines the figure of the devoutly Catholic woman -- or devote -- in this context, from the beginnings of the Third Republic to the 1905 separation of church and state. Applying an interdisciplinary approach using novels of Balzac, the Goncourt brothers, Zola, and popular novelists, visual representations, medical treatises, essays, funeral remembrances, personal letters, and other sources, I explore representations of the devote as they reflected social, political, and gendered anxieties about the tenacity of republican institutions, the role of women in private and public, the reach of Catholic ideas to French citizens, and the differences between men and women during the period
History and the Past in the Legislative Debates of the French Revolution, 1789-1792 by James C Mazza( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study challenges the assumption that an indictment and discarding of history formed the only strand of the French Revolution's discourse about the past. A consideration of debates and speeches in the Constituent Assembly (1789--1791) and the Legislative Assembly (1791--1792) reveals that engagement with the national past was part of the revolutionary experience. During 1789--1791 deputies in the center and on the left looked back to the examples of pre-Bourbon representative assemblies and Christian antiquity. Deputies periodized the past into distinct eras, agreed that despotism made its appearance in the early seventeenth century, and skipped over the Bourbon era to return to what was valuable in the political practice of the Renaissance and Middle Ages. These deputies were influenced by pre-Revolutionary ways of thinking about the past, while also injecting modern invocations of national will and sovereignty into their evocations of past ages

Mots pour maux: Maladies nerveuses et ecrits contagieux sous le Second Empire et la Troisieme Republique by Nils Froment( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Conveniently labeled as scapegoats for the rise of industrialism, working class women were being viewed as mutants instilling pathos in society and history, leading ultimately to physical degeneration and political decadence. Their presence in society offered a pretext to draw medical, moral and socio-economical parallels between the emergence of witchcraft in the fourteenth century and the rise of hysteria and epilepsy in the second half of the nineteenth century
From Christian militants to republican renovators: The third ralliement of Catholics in postwar France, 1944--1965 by Arthur Plaza( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis examines the relationship between religion and political culture in France from the interwar period through the 1960s. It explores why leaders or militants from interwar Catholic Action associations committed to establishing a "Christian social order" embraced the Republic at the Liberation and founded a new political party to rally Catholics to Republican institutions, policies, and values. Their innovation, the Mouvement Republicain Populaire, a French incarnation of a Christian Democratic party, bore characteristics of the religious beliefs and practices that its members had adopted in their Catholic social activism. Its structures, policies, and rhetoric were steeped in Catholic social doctrine and personalist philosophy. In the postwar decades it constituted a means for Catholics to shape the Republic through democratic politics, with important consequences both for Catholic political cultures and the secular Republic
