  • Publication: Aftermath: legacies and memories of war in Europe, 1918-1945-1989

    Focusing on three of the defining moments of the twentieth century – the end of the two World Wars and the collapse of the Iron Curtain – this volume presents a rich, interdisciplinary collection of authoritative essays, covering a wide range of thematic, regional and methodological perspectives. By re-examining these traumatic years it illuminates ideas concerning mythologisation, mobilisation, commemoration, confrontation and representation in the aftermath of conflict. The relationship between the living and the dead, the contestation of memories and legacies of war in cultural and political discourses, and the significance of generations are all key threads binding the collection together.

  • Publication: Les étrangers dans la Grande Guerre

    Quand la Première Guerre mondiale éclate, la France est déjà un pays d’immigration. Les étrangers, dont les situations sont très contrastées, sont immédiatement et durablement affectés. Mais c’est aussi l’arrivée de centaines de milliers de soldats et de travailleurs, recrutés dans les pays limitrophes ou dans les colonies pour combler les besoins humains devenus considérables. Cet ouvrage présente l’histoire méconnue de ces étrangers aux statuts très divers, de leurs relations avec les armées et avec la société française. L’étude montre aussi en quoi la Grande Guerre a constitué une période charnière pour les politiques publiques d’immigration qui suivirent.
