Abstract

The different written and archaeological sources give a very heterogeneous picture of the social and religious structures in Eastern Middle Europe. Recent developments in modern archaeological and historical research have shown new approaches to the analysis of elites. In every society there is a leading minority, who cumulates both wealth and prestige and is characterized by an elevated social rank, reputation and acceptance. An external marker of these elites is especially the superregional transfer of certain items, but also of the culturally encoded value systems. The present study asks whether this notion of cultural transfer, developed in the context of modern history, can be applied as well to the study of mutual influences between the elites of medieval Western and Eastern Middle Europe. It also raises the question if this terminology is equally useful for the analysis of written and material sources, and to what extent it might open a new perspective on the rich but as yet often unexplored history of the lands east of the Elbe river.

Abstract

A key, intensifying change affecting rural areas in the last few decades has been a decline in the proportion of national populations whose principal livelihood is farming. The corresponding re-distribution of population has typically resulted in a net population loss to rural areas, and diversification of rural activity. The corporatization and technological modification of food production has prompted new policy challenges, and has bound rural and urban populations together in new relationships articulated in moral discourses of custodianship, food safety, and sustainability. Contributors to this volume came together in the attempt to stimulate collective insight into trends of rural change in Australia, New Zealand and Europe. The first two countries have been characterised by avowedly `neoliberal’ rural policy – with considerable departures from it in practice; Europe, on the other hand, by a mix of policy measures which attempt to integrate land management and sustainability, diversification and maintenance of a competitive farming sector within an overarching policy framework more overtly, though only partially, oriented towards sustaining rural society. Aiming to build on research relating to the character of rural transitions, this volume offers substantive and critical contributions to the understanding of the sources of unpredictability, instability, and continuity, that underpin rural transition. The papers explore changes and continuities in policy, the governance of rural spaces, technological developments relating to rural areas and populations, and social forms of subjectivation and participation in increasingly diverse rural settings.

Abstract

Las últimas décadas del siglo XX corresponden a lo que Huntington definió como la «tercera ola» de democratización, que comienza en el sur de Europa en la década de los 70, continúa con los países latinoamericanos en los años 80 y en los del este europeo post-comunista en los años 90. Entre las cuestiones generadas por el surgimiento de estas democracias, el problema de la gestión de la violencia pasada (la de la dictadura), presente (la de la transición) y futura (la de la democracia restaur...

Abstract

In Emotion and Devotion Miri Rubin explores the craft of the historian through a series of studies of medieval religious cultures. In three original chapters she approaches the medieval figure of the Virgin Mary with the aim of unravelling meaning and experience. Hymns and miracle tales, altarpieces and sermons – a wide range of sources from many European regions – are made to reveal the creativity and richness which they elicited in medieval people, women and men, clergy and laity, people of...

Abstract

Malgré le grand nombre de femmes européennes qui ont vécu en Algérie, l'histoire de l'Algérie coloniale est restée jusqu'ici une histoire quasiment asexuée. À partir de sources diversifiées, cet ouvrage, qui est l'adaptation d'une thèse soutenue en 2005 sous la direction de Geneviève Dermenjian, tente de combler cette lacune en évoquant les conditions d'immigration de ces femmes, leur place, leur rôle de 1830 à 1939. Parler des femmes c'est aussi parler des hommes tant les identités sexuées ...

Abstract

Die europäische Integration führt zu einer Schwächung des Staates zugunsten des Marktes. - Diese These bestimmt seit einigen Jahren den EU-Diskurs. Aber kann man wirklich von einer Neoliberalisierung durch die EU sprechen? Und wenn ja, war diese Entwicklung gewollt oder war sie der Logik supranationaler Zusammenarbeit geschuldet? Der Band geht diesen Fragen anhand der europäischen Vorgaben für die nationale Ausgabenpolitik nach. Eine Analyse der Geschichte der Integration seit den Römischen Verträgen zeigt, dass es Alternativen zur heutigen Dominanz neoliberaler Politik gegeben hat - und somit auch wieder geben kann.

Abstract

Analyzes the processes of nation-building in nineteenth and early-twentieth-century south-eastern Europe. A product of transnational comparative teamwork, this collection represents a coordinated interpretation based on ten varied academic cultures and traditions. The originality of the approach lies in a combination of three factors: [a] seeing nation-building as a process that is to a large extent driven by intellectuals and writers, rather than just a side effect of infrastructural modern...
