Views from the margins : creating identities in modern France by Sarah Ann Curtis( )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays offers examples drawn from an imperial history of France that show the power of the periphery to shape diverse and dynamic modern French identities at its center. Each essay explains French identity as a fluid process rather than a category into which French citizens (and immigrants) are expected to fit. In using a core/periphery framework to explore identity creation, Views from the Margins breaks new ground in bringing together diverse historical topics from politics, religion, regionalism, consumerism, nationalism, and gendered aspects of civic and legal engagement."--Jacket
Civilizing habits : women missionaries and the revival of French empire by Sarah Ann Curtis( Book )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Civilizing Habits explores the life stories of three French women missionaries--Philippine Duchesne, Emilie de Vialar, and Anne-Marie Javouhey--who crossed boundaries, both real and imagined, to evangelize far from France's shores. In so doing, they helped France reestablish a global empire after the dislocation of the Revolution and the fall of Napoleon. They also pioneered a new missionary era in which the educational, charity, and health care services provided by women became valuable tools for spreading Catholic influence across the globe. Philippine Duchesne traveled to former French territory in Missouri in 1818 to proselytize among Native Americans. Thwarted by the American policy of removing tribes even further west, she turned her attention to girls' education on the frontier. Emilie de Vialar followed French troops to Algeria after its conquest and opened missions throughout the Mediterranean basin in the mid-nineteenth century. Prevented from direct evangelization, she developed strategies and subterfuges for working among Muslim populations. Anne-Marie Javouhey evangelized among Africans in the French slave colonies, including a utopian settlement in the wilds of French Guiana. She became a rare Catholic proponent of the abolition of slavery. -- Publisher description
Educating the faithful : religion, schooling, and society in nineteenth-century France by Sarah Ann Curtis( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Curtis reveals how Catholic primary schooling during the nineteenth century helped to lay the groundwork for transforming France into a modern industrial nation. Focusing on Lyon, the Rhone, and the industrial Loire Valley - the most populated regions outside Paris - she finds persuasive evidence that religious teaching orders created the school structures and culture necessary for the modern educational system." "Drawing on archives of the teaching orders themselves, as well as on diocesan and Vatican archives, Curtis explores the establishment of schools, teacher training and placement programs, and curriculum development. She argues that decisions about schooling were driven by pragmatic as well as ideological considerations. She also examines two interrelated issues: the feminization of Catholicism and the education of girls."--Jacket
