Abstract

As noted by Pierre Nora (1989, p. 17), ‘no-one&#xD;knows what the past will be&#xD;made of next’. While this is indeed so, it is also the case that the past will surely&#xD;be ‘made’ somehow. In this chapter, we take a look at those makings and the&#xD;ubiquitous desire to recreate what once was that arguably undergirds almost any&#xD;heritage practice.

Abstract

Traditional arts practices and festivals have attracted increasing and diverse&#xD;attention in the European context since policymakers discovered ‘culture’ as a&#xD;resource in the 1980s (see, e.g., Kilday 1998 ). Their impact on their respective&#xD;communities of practice, modes of production and exchange value in contemporary&#xD;European society is under the spotlight from various angles within the&#xD;newly emerged fi eld of ‘festival studies’, which is deeply connected to policy&#xD;issues (Frost 2016 ). However, much of this interest is instrumentally concerned&#xD;with revenue potential, leaving key concepts, such as heritage, identity and&#xD;indeed Europe, defi ned in rather vague and often contradictory terms (Kockel,&#xD;Nic Craith and Frykman 2012 ; Logan, Kockel and Nic Craith 2015 ; K ø lvraa&#xD;2016 ; L ä hdesm ä ki 2016 ; Whitehead and Bozo ğ lu 2017 ). Moreover, the number&#xD;and range of events labelled as ‘festival’ is growing (Frost 2016 : 569), requiring&#xD;a broader perspective on performances of heritage and identity.

Abstract

The eleven essays brought together in this volume explore the relations between expulsion, diaspora, and exile between Late Antiquity and the seventeenth century. The essays range from Hellenistic Egypt to seventeenth-century Hungary and involve expulsion and migration of Jews, Muslims and Protestants. The common goal of these essays is to shed light on a certain number of issues: first, to try to understand the dynamics of expulsion, in particular its social and political causes; second, to examine how expelled communities integrate (or not) into their new host societies; and finally, to understand how the experiences of expulsion and exile are made into founding myths that establish (or attempt to establish) group identities.

Abstract

Entre fascination et peur, enthousiasme et hostilité, la nouvelle migration chinoise questionne. Les travaux sur « la Chine en Afrique » ont occulté l'importance de l'émergence de la Chine pour ses voisins les plus proches. Cette omission est particulièrement flagrante dans le cas de l'Asie du Sud-Est qui a toujours été le principal théâtre des engagements commerciaux de la Chine avec le monde. Considérée comme l'arrière-cour naturelle de la Chine, l'Asie du Sud-Est est un laboratoire complexe et hétérogène des circulations et des identités en construction à l'aube du « siècle chinois ». La question des relations entre la Chine et le reste du monde est tantôt pensée en termes de domination, de menace, d'exploitation, et de soutien aux régimes autoritaires, tantôt en termes d'aubaine et d'opportunités de développement. Cette recherche propose de dépasser cette approche binaire en décrivant les stratégies mises en œuvre par les acteurs locaux pour atténuer l'inégalité des rapports de force, négocier l'asymétrie, contourner l'hégémonie, embrasser, résister ou manipuler les termes dictés par les capitaux chinois. Le présent Carnet, centré sur les pays de l'ancienne Indochine française - le Cambodge, le Viêt Nam et le Laos - constitue la première étape d'un projet éditorial plus large qui se donne pour ambition de relever ce défi.

Abstract

Polis/Cosmopolis publishes the results of research, arising from diverse perspectives, into the coexistence, in tension or in harmony, of regional and global identities, minorities, and majorities in the Graeco-Roman world, in the Middle Ages, and in the Renaissance. This work will explore the ways in which these cultural modalities were shaped, and transformed themselves, involving the polis system, the phenomenon of colonization, the hegemonic leagues, and Athens, both ideally imagined and historically beset with instability and lost values (as attested by its leading men). Our investigations also envision the Other, and consider the variety of political dispensations for the Other down to the Hellenistic kingdoms with, naturally, Alexandria first and foremost. There then follows the evolution that leads from Rome to a linguistic Romanitas and from Europe to the New World. Indeed, for a long time, local languages and the language of imperium coexisted as affirmations of regional identity and global integration, as was the case in the Hellenistic East as well as, in fact, in Hispania.

Abstract

Passing Through Shanghai examines how children experience international mobility. Focusing on a specific yet diverse group of expatriate youths in contemporary Shanghai, the book investigates how children negotiate cultural identity when they are subject to the highly mobile and often privileged lifestyle associated with their parent’s international careers. The ethnographic fieldwork that informs the book was carried out in Shanghai from 2010 to 2012 and focused on expatriate teenagers’ everyday practices, their lives at international schools, their engagement with the city, their dreams and aspirations, as well as their questions of belonging. The book’s ethnographic approach captures the “in-between” state of moving while growing up and explores teenage practices and positionings in this transitory situation. The teenagers’ own perspectives and experiences of living in expatriate communities contribute to a larger view of the interdependence and contradictions between the aspired flexibility of twenty-first century identities and the rigidity of cultural divisions based on nationality, ethnicity, gender, and class.

Abstract

This book examines how different agents and institutions within the Danish nation state have situated themselves within this complex landscape of competing appropriations of classical antiquity from the eighteenth century to the present day. In particular, it focuses on the use of classical heritages to construct both European and national identities (in the plural) and especially on how Danes in this period have engaged with a sense of European commonality through their engagements with the classical past.

Abstract

The idea of etnos came into being over a hundred years ago as a way of understanding the collective identities of people with a common language and shared traditions. In the twentieth century, the concept came to be associated with Soviet state-building, and it fell sharply out of favour. Yet outside the academy, etnos-style arguments not only persist, but are a vibrant part of regional anthropological traditions. Life Histories of Etnos Theory in Russia and Beyond makes a powerful argument for reconsidering the importance of etnos in our understanding of ethnicity and national identity across Eurasia. The collection brings to life a rich archive of previously unpublished letters, fieldnotes, and photographic collections of the theory’s early proponents. Using contemporary fieldwork and case studies, the volume shows how the ideas of these ethnographers continue to impact and shape identities in various regional theatres from Ukraine to the Russian North to the Manchurian steppes of what is now China. Through writing a life history of these collectivist concepts, the contributors to this volume unveil a world where the assumptions of liberal individualism do not hold. In doing so, they demonstrate how notions of belonging are not fleeting but persistent, multi-generational, and bio-social.

Abstract

Few pre-modern empires had an impact on their subjects comparable to that of the Roman Empire. Over time, being Roman could mean many different things, e.g. Latin speakers under barbarian rule, subjects of the Byzantine empire or Christians in post-Roman Syria. This volume explores the changes Roman identity underwent in most of the former provinces of the empire between c. 400 and c. 1000, offering the first comprehensive overview on this topic.

Abstract

L’image de la Thaïlande est étroitement associée à celle du bouddhisme. On sait moins que ce pays fait partie, depuis 1998, des membres observateurs de l’Organisation de la Conférence Islamique ou que figurent, au plus haut niveau de son appareil d’Etat, plusieurs personnalités musulmanes. Il faut dire que la communauté représente 8% de la population nationale. Majoritaire dans certaines provinces du sud du pays, elle est également de plus en plus visible à Bangkok où son importance démographique ne cesse de croître. Quelles sont les origines de l’Islam dans le royaume ? Comment les musulmans se sont-ils intégrés à la nation thaïlandaise ? Quels sont les termes de la réaffirmation identitaire de cette minorité au sein d’un pays sensible aux effets de la globalisation ? Dans une Asie du Sud-Est où les peuples de tradition islamique pèsent d’un poids important, les musulmans de Thaïlande peuvent-ils jouer le rôle de trait d’union entre le Lotus et le Croissant ? Cet ouvrage tente de répondre à ces questions, particulièrement importantes à un moment où l’image des sociétés musulmanes est, en Thaïlande comme ailleurs, brouillée par l’essor des attitudes réactionnelles génératrices de radicalisation.
