Une théorie de l'Etat esclavagiste : John Caldwell Calhoun by Gérard Hugues( )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in French and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Guerre de Sécession aux États-Unis se nourrit d'un conflit idéologique cristallisé autour de quelques personnages clés. L'Histoire retient que le Nord eut Abraham Lincoln, elle oublie trop souvent que le Sud eut John Calhoun. Aristocrate philosophe, penseur engagé, politicien hors pair et défenseur acharné de la cause sudiste, Calhoun mourut quelques années avant le déclenchement d'un conflit qu'il jugeait inéluctable et dont il avait prédit l'implacable barbarie. Le présent volume présente une traduction inédite du traité fondamental de John Calhoun, la Disquisition on the Government. Il propose également, à travers l'étude minutieuse du modèle républicain imaginé par Calhoun, de saisir dans leur complexité les structures d'une société sudiste fondée sur l'exploitation d'une race par une autre

L'éthique écologique chez Henri David Thoreau by David Latour( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thoreau's nature writing is rooted in 19th century New-England. Fed on New-England's values, the author shows life should be spared and not spent in vain in mundane activities. In order for him to do so, he chooses the way of a life of simplicity and solitude in nature, which enables him to question what society traditionally sees as virtues.Living alone in the wild is an anthropocentric means to reach happiness because nature provides man with all that he needs. Hence, Thoreau is a naturalist who lives in nature and walks in ii. His naturalism becomes more and more estranged from Emerson's theory on immanence. The real scientist can watch animals using his subjectivity and can go so far as to see in certain animals the incarnation of some virtues.To nuance this anthropomorphist approach, Thoreau advocates zoocentrism. This point of view can even lead to a peaceful cohabitation between species. However, Thoreau's writing and actions are fed with paradoxes as far as hunting, fishing and being a vegetarian is concerned. To live in harmony with nature, Thoreau gests closer to the Indian model which has limits. Thoreau makes many suggestions, among which the creation of national parks
Le bicentenaire de la Révolution américaine : Représentations audiovisuelles de la mémoire by Emilie Roman( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grounded on a rich audiovisual corpus, this dissertation focuses on the audiovisual representations of the commemoration of the American Revolution Bicentennial. Composed of three chapters, this work analyzes the process of memory and identity making that emerged from this anniversary. My research shows the demagogic, ideological and prophetic caracter of the commemoration, a series of events that celebrate the past in order to restore unity, form the national identity and shape the country's future.The first chapter examines two pivotal aspects of the celebrations: in the one hand, the importance that the adverse context of the seventies played in the development of the audiovisual materials, and on the other hand, how the organizers of the events instrumentalized the past in order to reinstate the national unity. This instrumentalization led to the construction of a national mythology and the preservation of the collective memory.In the second chapter, I analyze the various national and international projects along with the public targeted or consciously forgotten by the organizers. In this chapter, the popular character of the commemoration is highlighted and I unveil the identity myth that went with it. Multiculturalism and historical context pushed the government and the organizers to imagine worldwide celebrations, and an universalization of the memory process evolving around the messianic temptation of the United States.Finally, I demonstrate how the national collective memory was remapped through a selective representation of the Revolution's events, figures, and values using different broadcasting methods and formats adjusted to audiovisual stakes
