CfP: Croisements, métissages, trajectoires : vivre la Révolution des colonies, 1774-1804

Tue, 2022-05-10 13:27

L’histoire récente des espaces coloniaux et de leur intégration à la dynamique révolutionnaire a reçu une attention méritée et soutenue ces dernières années. Il n’est désormais plus possible d’écrire l’histoire des Révolutions de la fin du XVIIIe siècle sans intégrer l’héritage colonial de l’Ancien Régime et sans comprendre les événements propres à ces espaces qui influencent plus que les métropoles, les grands équilibres géopolitiques de la planète encore prise dans le duel franco‑britannique pour l’hégémonie mondiale dans un jeu d’alliances des plus complexes.

The key period in Chile’s history that stretches from the first days of the Unidad Popular (UP) in power in 1970 to the dismantling of “Chile’s road to socialism” by the coup d’état of 11 September 1973 - which includes the political, social, economic, and cultural transformations that the Socialist government led by Salvador Allende promoted and strengthened, and the reaction against them - produced a marked international interest.

Tue, 2022-04-26 09:04

Silence occurs in every oral history interview and comes in many forms. Some silences are striking, others are barely noticeable. Some express comfort, others discomfort. Some signify a refusal to speak, others do not. The meanings of silence are myriad: it may express taboo, trauma, forgetting, reluctance, oppression, deceit, politeness, censorship, secrecy, contemplation, reflection, or simply that there is no need to explain.
