Abstract

Nicola Labanca propose dans ce livre une reconstruction de l'histoire de la colonisation italienne, des premières conquêtes jusqu'à la décolonisation. Le processus d'expansion coloniale est examiné dans toutes ses dimensions (économiques, politiques et idéologiques), dans le contexte de l'Italie libérale puis du fascisme, avec les deux temps forts que représentèrent les guerres de Libye et d'Éthiopie. L'auteur met en évidence les singularités de la colonisation italienne, présentée par la pro...

Abstract

Dans les années 1890, on assiste à une dénonciation croissante des abus de pouvoir en Algérie coloniale. La compétition électorale de la minorité française en est souvent à l'origine. Mais l'attention du Parlement et de la presse métropolitaine grandit pour transformer ces affaires en « scandales algériens ». Ils donnent à voir un système politique et administratif gangrené par la violence, le clientélisme et la corruption qui sont nourris par l'abondance des fonds publics dans une colonie de...

Abstract

Alors que la haute vallée du Mississippi se transforme en une colonie de peuplement, l’Église catholique tente d’imposer et de structurer autour d’elle cette société nouvelle. Après l’organisation de missions, elle s’attache à construire un diocèse, adossé à l’organisation territoriale proposée par les États-Unis. Cette Église présente la particularité d’être en grande majorité française, issue du vaste mouvement missionnaire qui saisit alors l’Europe.

Abstract

L’idea di questo Convegno viene da lontano: ognuna delle istituzioni che lo hanno organizzato ha accumulato infatti un patrimonio di riflessioni su questo tema: per il Centre Jean Bérard questo precede la sua stessa nascita, trovando la sua origine in Rhégion et Zankle, il libro di un maestro di cui in quest’occasione più che mai abbiamo sentito la mancanza; seguirono poi le due Contributions à l’étude de la société et de la colonisation eubéennes, del 1975 e del 1981; per l’Università di Edi...

Abstract

The Lives of Stories traces three stories of Aboriginal–settler friendships that intersect with the ways in which Australians remember founding national stories, build narratives for cultural revival, and work on reconciliation and self-determination. These three stories, which are still being told with creativity and commitment by storytellers today, are the story of James Morrill’s adoption by Birri-Gubba people and re-adoption 17 years later into the new colony of Queensland, the story of Bennelong and his relationship with Governor Phillip and the Sydney colonists, and the story of friendship between Wiradjuri leader Windradyne and the Suttor family. Each is an intimate story about people involved in relationships of goodwill, care, adoptive kinship and mutual learning across cultures, and the strains of maintaining or relinquishing these bonds as they took part in the larger events that signified the colonisation of Aboriginal lands by the British. Each is a story in which cross-cultural understanding and misunderstanding are deeply embedded, and in which the act of storytelling itself has always been an engagement in cross-cultural relations. The Lives of Stories reflects on the nature of story as part of our cultural inheritance, and seeks to engage the reader in becoming more conscious of our own effect as history-makers as we retell old stories with new meanings in the present, and pass them on to new generations.&#xD;

Abstract

"The Bounty from the Beach is a collection of cross-disciplinary essays, capitalising on a widely shared fascination for the Bounty story in order to draw scholarly attention to Oceania. It aims to reorient the Bounty focus away from the West, where most Bountynarratives and studies have emerged, to the Pacific, where most of the original events unfolded. It investigates the Bounty heritage from the standpoint of the beach, Greg Dening’s metaphor for culture contact and conflict in the Pacific Islands: this liminal place that transforms Islanders and voyagers, islands and ships, each time it is crossed. It analyses the way newcomers create new islands, and how these changes may occasionally impact the world. This volume examines the ‘little people’, to use another of Dening’s expressions, who stand ‘on both sides of the beach’: they are Polynesian or European or, as beaches are crossed and remade, no longer one without the other, but bound together in processes of change. Among these people are Bounty sailors, beachcombers, Pitcairners and indigenous Pacific Islanders of the past and the present.&#xD;This collection also explores the works of some renowned Western writers and actors who, turning mutineers after their own fashion and in their own times, themselves crossed the beach and attempted to illuminate the ‘little people’ involved in the Bounty narratives. These prominent writers and actors put the spotlight on characters who were silenced on account of race, class or geographical distance from the dominant centres of power. Inspired by Dening’s empowering voice, our purpose is to fill that silence.&#xD;Just as it criss-crosses the ocean, progressing with the ship through time and space, The Bounty from the Beach ranges far and wide across disciplines, methodologies and scholarly styles. Its multidisciplinary course contributes to illuminate the multiple ways in which the Bounty heritage embraces diverse horizons. It throws light on the colonial discourse that undertook to stifle Pacific Islander agency, and the neocolonial policies that have been applied to Oceania, and still are: hegemonic moves that have led to global environmental, nuclear and ecological hazards. As a whole, the collection contends that what unfolds in this vast ocean matters: the stakes are high for the whole human community."&#xD;

Abstract

This is an important book. It is a reprint of the first detailed study of how Pacific Islanders responded politically and economically to their rulers across the German empire of the Pacific. Under one cover, it captures the variety of interactions between the various German colonial administrations, with their separate approaches, and the leaders and people of Samoa in Polynesia, the major island centre of Pohnpei in Micronesia and the indigenes of New Guinea. Drawing on anthropology, new Pacific history insights and a range of theoretical works on African and Asian resistance from the 1960s and 1970s, it reveals the complexities of Islander reactions and the nature of protests against German imperial rule. It casts aside old assumptions that colonised peoples always resisted European colonisers. Instead, this book argues convincingly that Islander responses were often intelligent and subtle manipulations of their rulers’ agendas, their societies dynamic enough to make their own adjustments to the demands of empire. It does not shy away from major blunders by German colonial administrators, nor from the strategic and tactical mistakes of Islander leaders. At the same time, it raises the profile of several large personalities on both sides of the colonial frontier, including Lauaki Namulau’ulu Mamoe and Wilhelm Solf in Samoa; Henry Nanpei, Georg Fritz and Karl Boeder in Pohnpei; or Governor Albert Hahl and Po Minis from Manus Island in New Guinea.

Abstract

L’émergence d’une « modernité » indienne est indissociable à la fois de la rupture coloniale et d’une continuité culturelle avec les traditions préexistantes. Les textes rassemblés ici proposent de réexaminer le sens et la portée de la question postcoloniale, entendue comme exploration critique de l’altérité et de la diversité, à la lumière de cette modernité. Dans ce but, cet ouvrage obéit à une triple visée : faire une large place aux littératures indiennes en langues vernaculaires,...
