Abstract

Choisir le Limousin comme laboratoire d’observation de la colonisation française du xixe siècle était un pari audacieux. Il est remarquablement relevé par Reine-Claude Grondin : l’étude d’une région enclavée, éloignée des grands ports impériaux et faiblement connectée à l’outre-mer - mais néanmoins ouverte aux horizons lointains de l’Empire - permet de revisiter en profondeur les perspectives des historiens sur la diffusion et la réception de l’idée coloniale en France. La nouveauté de l’enquête tient autant au choix des sources qu’à l’échelle choisie. De fait, dans cette province rurale, l’ombre portée de la colonisation n’est pas perçue de la même façon qu’à Paris, Marseille, Lyon ou Bordeaux. Les échanges avec les colonies s’y organisent selon des logiques propres. Des acteurs et des réseaux coloniaux spécifiques y naissent et s’y activent au gré des nécessités locales. Enfin, il ne s’y construit pas le même type de discours et de mémoire. Et de fait, entre 1830 et 1939, l’affirmation de l’identité du Limousin est paradoxalement passée par l’exaltation de l’Empire et par la mise en avant d’une vocation coloniale spécifiquement limousine.

Abstract

Ce volume présente des travaux récents sur une dimension peu étudiée de l’histoire napoléonienne et atlantique, rassemblant des spécialistes de l’histoire nord-américaine, latino-américaine et européenne. Sans prétendre fournir un traitement exhaustif du véritable choc qu’a produit Napoléon dans le monde atlantique - de la vente de la Louisiane aux Etats-Unis et de la révolution haïtienne jusqu’aux mouvements d’indépendance ibéro-américains - dans l’ensemble les différents chapitres permettent de suivre les conséquences directes et indirectes du retrait français de l’Amérique après 1804-1805, et suggèrent comment les guerres mondiales et les programmes réformateurs de l’ère napoléonienne ont contribué aux sociétés post-impériales qui ont émergé dans l’espace atlantique. En tant que tel, ce livre offre aux spécialistes des études napoléoniennes une nouvelle approche des thèmes classiques de la modernisation dans les domaines militaire, religieux, juridique et administratif et s’étend jusqu’aux politiques artistiques et aux influences culturelles dans les Amériques.

Abstract

This is a detailed study of the various ways in which London and India were imaginatively constructed by British observers during the nineteenth century. This process took place within a unified field of knowledge that brought together travel and evangelical accounts to exert a formative influence on the creation of London and India for the domestic reading public. Their distinct narratives, rhetoric and chronologies forged homologies between representations of the metropolitan poor and colonial subjects - those constituencies that were seen as the most threatening to imperial progress. Thus the poor and particular sections of the Indian population were inscribed within discourses of western civilization as regressive and inferior peoples. Over time these discourses increasingly promoted notions of overt and rigid racial hierarchies, the legacy of which remains to this day. This comparative analysis looks afresh at the writings of observers such as Henry Mayhew, Patrick Colquhoun, Charles Grant, Pierce Egan, James Forbes and Emma Roberts, thereby seeking to rethink the location of the poor and India within the nineteenth-century imagination. Drawing upon cultural and intellectual history it also attempts to extend our understanding of the relationship between 'centre' and 'periphery'. The other empire will be of value to students and scholars of modern imperial and urban history, cultural studies, and religious studies.

Abstract

Through a study of the British Empire's largest women's patriotic organisation, formed in 1900, and still in existence, this book examines the relationship between female imperialism and national identity. It throws new light on women's involvement in imperialism; on the history of 'conservative' women's organisations; on women's interventions in debates concerning citizenship and national identity; and on the history of women in white settler societies. After placing the IODE (Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire) in the context of recent scholarly work in Canadian, gender, imperial history and post-colonial theory, the book follows the IODE's history through the twentieth century. Chapters focus upon the IODE's attempts to create a British Canada through its maternal feminist work in education, health, welfare and citizenship. In addition it reflects on the IODE's responses to threats to Anglo-Canadian hegemony posed by immigration, World Wars and Communism, and examines the complex relationship between imperial loyalty and settler nationalism. Tracing the organisation into the postcolonial era, where previous imperial ideas are outmoded, it considers the transformation from patriotism to charity, and the turn to colonisation at home in the Canadian North.

Écrit au Xe siècle par le géographe persan Ibn al-Faqīh al-Hamaḏānī, l’Abrégé du Livre des Pays constitue un témoignage vivant de la vision du monde que pouvaient avoir les habitants du Dâr al-Islâm à cette époque. « Au dire de ‘Abd Allāh b. ‘Amr b. al-‘Ās b.

Abstract

How did the patronage activities of India’s Vijayanagara Empire (c. 1346–1565) influence Hindu sectarian identities? Although the empire has been commonly viewed as a Hindu bulwark against Islamic incursion from the north or as a religiously ecumenical state, Valerie Stoker argues that the Vijayanagara court was selective in its patronage of religious institutions. To understand the dynamic interaction between religious and royal institutions in this period, she focuses on the career of the Hindu intellectual and monastic leader Vy?sat?rtha. An agent of the state and a powerful religious authority, Vy?sat?rtha played an important role in expanding the empire’s economic and social networks. By examining his polemics against rival sects in the context of his work for the empire, Stoker provides a remarkably nuanced picture of the relationship between religious identity and sociopolitical reality under Vijayanagara rule.

Abstract

Tulagi was the capital of the British Solomon Islands Protectorate between 1897 and 1942. The British withdrawal from the island during the Pacific War, its capture by the Japanese and the American reconquest left the island’s facilities damaged beyond repair. After the war, Britain moved the capital to the American military base on Guadalcanal, which became Honiara. The Tulagi settlement was an enclave of several small islands, the permanent population of which was never more than 600: 300 foreigners—one-third of European origin and most of the remainder Chinese—and an equivalent number of Solomon Islanders. Thousands of Solomon Islander males also passed through on their way to work on plantations and as boat crews, hospital patients and prisoners. The history of the Tulagi enclave provides an understanding of the origins of modern Solomon Islands. Tulagi was also a significant outpost of the British Empire in the Pacific, which enables a close analysis of race, sex and class and the process of British colonisation and government in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
