Abstract

The complexity and importance of underage drinking prompted ERAB and ABMRF to initiate a state of the art review. It explores the extent of underage drinking across Europe and North America, as well as our current understanding of factors that increase the risk of this behaviour and potentially effective evidence-based approaches to prevent underage drinking. Unfortunately, the problem is complex and a single solution or policy to prevent underage drinking does not exist. Nevertheless, a numb...

Abstract

Ville en perpétuel mouvement, Paris n'a cessé de changer de superficie. C'est au cours de la première moitié du xixe siècle, avec la construction des fortifications, que se dessinent ses limites actuelles. Pendant une vingtaine d'années, des territoires « suburbains » compris entre le mur des Fermiers généraux et le nouveau mur entourent la capitale. Leur annexion, à partir du 1er janvier 1860, permet l'émergence d'un Paris agrandi, intégré et, pour partie, encore en devenir. La Troisième rép...

Abstract

Since the 1970s the feminization thesis has become a powerful trope in the rewriting of the social history of Christendom. However, this ‘thesis' has triggered some vehement debates, given that men have continued to dominate the churches, which have reacted to the association of religion and femininity by explicitly focusing their appeal to men. The authors critically reflect upon the use of concepts like feminization and masculinization in relation to Christianity. By presenting case studies that adopt different gendered approaches regarding Christian, mainly Catholic discourses and practices, they capture multiple ‘feminizations' and ‘masculinizations' in Europe during the 19th and 20th centuries. In particular, it becomes clear that the idea that Christianity took on ‘charicteristically feminine' values and practices cannot withstand the conclusion that what is considered ‘manly' or ‘feminine' depends on time, place, and context, and on the reasons why gendered metaphors are used.

Abstract

Ranging from Polish inspirations in contemporary authors such as Bernlef, Frank Westerman and Erwin Mortier, over the Central European successes of the now forgotten Jo van Ammers-Küller, to the Bulgarian character Firmin Debeljanov in The Sorrow of Belgium: with its focus on the various interrelations between the contemporary literature of the Low countries and the so-called smaller literary cultures located between the German and the Russian language areas, the volume Van Eeden tot heden offers a multi-faceted perspective on a hitherto barely explored topic in twentieth-century European literature. Due to the academic background of the contributing authors the emphasis is on Polish, Hungarian and Czech case studies, though the Balkans are also being dealt with – albeit less prominently. Whereas some contributions search for contacts, links and influences between literatures and literators, some other chapters set up textual encounters in which authors and their works are compared from a thematic, poetic, stylistic or generic angle. Apart from these comparative endeavors, another group of contributors offer reception analysis regarding the overall topic. In the last part of the volume the focus is on issues of (national) representation and the discursive strategies that are used for it.

Abstract

Depuis une trentaine d'années, dans le sillage de travaux sur l'histoire de la criminalité puis de la justice pénale, l'histoire des peines suscite un intérêt renouvelé. Les discours critiques de la fin du XVIIIe siècle comme les innovations pénales qu'ils engendrent ont fait l'objet de multiples recherches. Le moment semble venu pour un essai de structuration et de comparaison sur le temps long. Il s'agit dans cet ouvrage de reprendre l'histoire des peines dans une perspective intégrée et co...

Abstract

Signifying Europe provides a systematic overview of the wide range of symbols used to represent Europe and Europeanness, both by the political elite and the broader public. Through a critical interpretation of the meanings of the various symbols—and their often contradictory or ambiguous dimensions—Johan Fornäs uncovers illuminating insights into how Europe currently identifies itself and is identified by others outside its borders. While the focus is on the European Union’s symbols, those symbols are also interpreted in relation to other symbols of Europe. Offering insight into the cultural dimensions of European unification, this volume will appeal to students, scholars and politicians interested in European policy issues, cultural studies and postnational cultural identity.

Abstract

Esta publicación ofrece una antología representativa de ensayos, escritos en el arco de treinta años, destinados a ilustrar luces y sombras del proceso codificador. El autor ve en éste no sólo una reorganización formal de la materia jurídica (penal, civil, mercantil o procesal) destinada a garantizar certeza, y por ello dirigida a conseguir mayor completitud material, sino también (y sobre todo) la visible repercusión jurídica de un cambio político, social, cultural, económico, es decir –simplificando– de la transición del mundo feudal al burgués. Por este motivo, la codificación deviene la estrategia jurídica preferida para corresponder a las aspiraciones incubadas por la sociedad en el contexto posrevolucionario. Se examina por eso desde perspectivas distintas: locales (la mayoría referidas al microcosmo suizo) y supranacionales, formales y materiales, científicas y presapienciales. El autor raramente se contenta con razonamientos basados en datos normativos, en reglas jurídicas promulgadas por los códigos. Tiende más bien a preguntarse sobre como la nueva sociedad burguesa recibió el nuevo derecho del código, sobre como lo ha aprovechado en sus propios programas, sobre los fines concretos de esta descontada adaptación normativa. Por este motivo, al privilegiar siempre la interpretación del destinatario, el autor no cede a la tentación de escribir una historia continental de la codificación, sino que prefiere un examen más pegado a la realidad histórica concreta de las singulares sociedades que codifican. Y lo hace en el espíritu de la intuición de Montesquieu, según la cual “c’est un très grand hasard, si les lois d’une nation peuvent convenir à une autre”.

Abstract

This study addresses the relation of people to divine beings in contemporary and historical communities, as exemplified in three strands. One is a long tradition of visions of mysterious wayfarers in rural Spain who bring otherworldly news and help, including recent examples. Another treats the seeming vivification of religious images—statues, paintings, engravings, and photographs apparently exuding blood, sweat and tears in Spanish homes and churches in the early modern period and the revi...

Abstract

Regional disparities and spatial clustering are ubiquitous in today’s world. This study contributes with empirical findings on the distribution of European research and patenting activity since the 1980s at the regional level. Besides a general theoretical part, it offers a quantitative clustering analysis, which makes use of EPO patent applications and a harmonized regional and technological classification. Moreover, the pan-European study incorporates a structural analysis of inter-regional co-patenting networks at the regional and technological level that covers the 1990s and 2000s. Finally, European regional income and growth disparities are addressed by placing emphasis on the spatial distribution of research activity and the regional settlement structure.
