Abstract

In March 2014, the e-mail&#xD;list of the European Academic Network on Romani&#xD;Studies1 hosted a discussion on definitions of the population known as ‘Roma’.&#xD;It began when one of the subscribers to the list – which at the time brought&#xD;together some 350 academics who specialised in Romani/Gypsy studies – asked&#xD;for reactions to two generalisations which she came across while preparing a&#xD;legal review of a document on cultural rights: (1) that all Roma speak a variety&#xD;of the same language, Romanes; and (2) that Roma generally consider themselves&#xD;to be a nation. Some two-dozen&#xD;scholars posted their reactions, which&#xD;together offer a fairly exhaustive summary of contemporary views on the subject

Abstract

Des lendemains de la Seconde Guerre mondiale à nos jours, « La France » a été pour nombre d'écrivains un enjeu passionnel, cristallisant amour et haine, culte et indifférence, violence et nostalgie. Comment la littérature s'est-elle fait l'écho des interrogations souterraines, critiques ou angoissées, qui ont travaillé le pays sur la possible dissolution de son ethos ? Et comment les écrivains se sont-ils confrontés à un mythe de la France hérité du XIXe siècle que les orages de l'Histoire on...

Abstract

How did two radically different legal cultures, those of the Ottomans and the Chinese, gradually acquire a legal architecture analogous to that of Europe? This Paper attempts to answer this question by providing a comparative study in legal history of the rise and demise of extraterritorial consular jurisdiction, utilizing a post-colonial and inter-disciplinary approach to international law. The study reveals that the establishment of consular jurisdiction during the nineteenth century was cl...

Abstract

This book presents 12 papers about the influences of the classical tradition (Greco-Roman and Judeo-Christian mythologies, Greek and Renaissance philosophy, classical theatre, etc.) in Spanish modern and contemporary cultural production, with special focus on literature, popular culture and cinema. Within the wide range of proposed studies, the monograph is divided into three thematic sections. The first unit investigates the subjective poetics in authors who are focused on the theme of exile and on the The Odyssey’s imaginary. After that, the book focuses on the presence of female mythological matrices in the recent Hispanic literature. The last section is devoted to theoretical studies on relations between mythologisation and fictionality in the cultural artifacts of the Hispanic world.

Abstract

The tendency of 21st century studies about the table has been to privilege as multi and transdisciplinary approaches. In fact, it is in its holistic sense that we use the term table, a universe that encompasses goods, people and ideas. Reflect today toward the table constitutes a process of careful inquiry into three of the main pillars of the man’s relationship with food, throughout its history: food, health and culture. This book is the subject of Lusophone Tables and is organized in two volumes, containing five parts and a total of 25 chapters. The 13 chapters of the first volume focus on two central themes: food under the therapeutic and symbolic prism. In Part I (Therapeutic Tables: when food is medicine), it is evident that, historically, medical writings preceded the culinary literature. Part II (Sacred Tables: when food is a symbol) is referred to the table as answer and vehicle of dialogue with the transcendent.
