Abstract

L’histoire des femmes née dans les années 1970, puis le genre, conçu comme un concept et un outil d’analyse quelques années plus tard, ont permis de renouveler l’écriture de l’histoire en reconnaissant le caractère sexué de l’organisation des sociétés humaines et en dévoilant l’inégalité entre les sexes comme produit des relations de pouvoir entre hommes et femmes. Ce livre met au jour la fécondité de cette approche. La diversité géographique - Espagne, Autriche, France et Italie -, chronolo...

Abstract

Silent Hill: The Terror Engine, the second of the two inaugural studies in the Landmark Video Games series from series editors Mark J. P. Wolf and Bernard Perron, is both a close analysis of the first three Silent Hill games and a general look at the whole series. Silent Hill, with its first title released in 1999, is one of the most influential of the horror video game series. Perron situates the games within the survival horror genre, both by looking at the history of the genre and by comparing Silent Hill with such important forerunners as Alone in the Dark and Resident Evil. Taking a transmedia approach and underlining the designer's cinematic and literary influences, he uses the narrative structure; the techniques of imagery, sound, and music employed; the game mechanics; and the fiction, artifact, and gameplay emotions elicited by the games to explore the specific fears survival horror games are designed to provoke and how the experience as a whole has made the Silent Hill series one of the major landmarks of video game history.

Abstract

Mika Kaurismäki’s films challenge many boundaries – national societies, genre formations, art/popular culture, fiction/documentary, humanity/nature and problematic distinctions between different zones of development. Synthesizing concepts from a range of thematic frameworks – e.g. auteurism, eco-philosophy, genre, cartography, cineaste networks, global reception, distribution and exhibition practices, and the potential of postnationalism – this book provides an interdisciplinary reading of Kaurismäki’s cinema. The notion of ‘transvergence’ – of thinking in heterogeneous and polyphonal terms – emerges as an analytical method for exploring the power of these films. Through this, the volume encourages rethinking transnational cinema studies in relation to many oft-debated notions such as Finnish culture, European identity, cosmopolitanism and globalization.

Abstract

La lecture géographique de la dynamique des rapports de genre dans le contexte des hauts plateaux de l'Ouest du Cameroun permet l'observation des changements qui s'opèrent depuis la fin des années 1980 liés aux difficultés de l'économie caféière. L'analyse porte sur deux changements majeurs portés par les paysannes : leurs nouveaux rapports à l'économie marchande et donc à la mobilisation d'argent, et les nouvelles mobilités spatiales qu'elles expérimentent dans les liens au monde urbain. L'é...
