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

8 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in French and held by 61 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
Images of war and war of images by Karine Hildenbrand( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays presented here attempt to assess war images and their impact on the sequence of events. Whether they are paintings, photos, films or other pictorial works, the difference between ethics and aesthetics is sometimes narrow ; do they profide information or propaganda?

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

L'écriture de la nature de Thoreau plonge ses racines dans la Nouvelle-Angleterre du XIXe. Nourri de ses valeurs, l'auteur montre comment la vie doit être économisée et non dépensée en vain dans des activités frivoles. Pour se faire, il choisit la voie de la simplicité et de la solitude dans la nature ce qui lui permet de remettre en cause ce que la société considère d'ordinaire comme des vertus. Vivre seul dans la nature sauvage est un moyen anthropocentrique pour accéder au bonheur car la nature apporte à l'homme tout ce dont il a besoin. Ainsi, Thoreau est un naturaliste qui vit dans la nature et la parcourt. Son naturalisme s'éloigne de plus en plus des théories emersoniennes sur l'immanence. Le véritable scientifique sait regarder les animaux en engageant sa subjectivité et peut aller jusqu'à voir dans certains animaux l'incarnation de vertus.Pour nuancer cet anthropocentrisme, Thoreau appelle au zoocentrisme. Celui-ci peut même amener à une cohabitation pacifique entre les espèces. Toutefois, l'écriture et la pratique de Thoreau sont nourries de paradoxes en ce qui concerne la chasse, la pêche et le végétarisme. Pour vivre en harmonie avec la nature, Thoreau se rapproche du modèle indien qui a ses limites. Parmi quelques suggestions, Thoreau est le premier à proposer la création de parcs nationaux
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

Le cinéma de la peur à l'ère du maccarthysme by Rebecca Franklin-Landi( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The aim of this study is to present an analysis of the manifestation of fear in American society during the period of McCarthyism, and concentrates on the filmographies of three directors contemporary to events: Alfred Hitchcock, Elia Kazan and Fred Zinnemann. The period of transition, 1946 to 1954, provides the temporal framework for this work. Defining American identity was the underlying focus of the 1950s anticommunist movement, which depended on the interventions of the House Un-American Activities Committee (the HUAC), as being a Communist was considered to be an un-American activity. This is why the three directors studied here were all recent immigrants to the United States, and why the notion of identity underlies this study. The cinema of this era shows the presence of fear through the movie esthetics and screenplays, but also in the broader context of the Hollywood cinema industry. Fear was used in American society in order to ensure the docility of the population. Anything which concerns the way in which a society is organized is political. In this way, this study shows the political function of fear as well as the potential use of cinema in order to transmit a subliminal message to the public; two aspects of society which continue to subsist in today's world
