Abstract

Au sein de l’ensemble des territoires contrôlés par les dynasties angevines, nous proposons d’examiner le personnel chargé des services centraux, la chancellerie, les cours de justice, les Chambre des comptes et archives, ou encore le conseil royal ou l’hôtel, tout comme les officiers des cours locales. On s’interrogera sur l’origine, la formation, les réseaux et les carrières de ce personnel, ainsi que sur la genèse institutionnelle de ses offices et charges. Tous ces éléments de départ s’articuleront avec une réflexion sur l’émergence de cultures administratives et politiques propres à ce groupe, autant de valeurs, de normes sociales, de pratiques, de dévotions et de goûts spécifiques caractérisant la genèse d’un milieu, et dans certains cas d’un « corps de l’État », dans le prolongement du colloque précédent tenu à Angers en novembre 2015 (« Parcours universitaires et formations intellectuelles des officiers angevins »). La question des circulations, des modèles et des échanges est certes importante. Mais dans un contexte monarchique, l’enjeu est aussi d’interroger précisément les phénomènes de « dépersonnalisation » de l’État et de discuter cette notion au regard de l’élaboration d’une « machine administrante » distincte de la personne du souverain et dont ce milieu est l’acteur. Pour éclairer ces processus, il s’agira de recourir tant à la prosopographie qu’aux carrières individuelles, à l’archéologie, à l’histoire et à l’histoire de l’art, à l’histoire des idées et des croyances, tant aux usages de l’écrit administratif ou spéculatif, qu’aux arts et lettres.

Abstract

Prisons are a rich source for literary narratives – but what narratives do prison officers themselves construct about working in a prison and their place in it? How do they talk about their daily work with prisoners, justify disciplinary action or assess prison as a form of punishment in general? As ontological narratives which position and give rise to the self, prison officers’ narratives are highly relevant, as they shape officers’ daily practice, the working of the prison as an organisation and ultimately the way prisoners are treated. Christopher Young combines field notes and interviews from a Swiss prison to reconstruct a typology of prison officers’ narratives of the self. One casts the officer as a tragic hero fighting to prevent the decline of punishment, another positions the officer as a lone fighter attempting to overcome the therapy-adverse inertia of the prison system. As the study shows, this inherent tension ultimately contributes to the failure of the attempt to establish a therapeutic detention unit. Prison officers’ narratives are viewed as shared narratives which cite and echo legal and media discourses, which the author in turn reconstructs on the basis of a discussion of the history of Swiss penal law and practice and a recent corpus of newspaper articles

Abstract

Truancy: Short and Long-term Solutions is a practical and accessible guide to dealing with the problem of truancy and non-attendance. It is the first book on the issue to actively focus on solutions to the problem, rather than the causes. Full of practical examples of the latest ways in which schools, teachers, education welfare officers and LEAs try to overcome their attendance difficulties. Ken Reid identifies nearly 120 short-term solutions as well as several long-term strategic approaches. The book also considers parental-condoned absenteeism, alternative curriculum schemes and mentoring, while the final chapter presents some strategic issues which policy-makers and politicians need to overcome. This book provides all teachers, deputy heads, head teachers, education welfare staff, social workers, learning mentors and other caring professionals with a repository of up-to-date ideas and solutions. It is essential reading for anyone involved in addressing the challenge of truancy.
