5 Collaborations Les Temps qui changent (2004) Téchiné’s sixteenth and latest film, centred as it is on its two stars, is a useful point of departure for examining the collaborative nature of his work, and shows the extent to which an approach excessively centred on the director as auteur risks missing wider creative processes. The subject matter of Les Temps qui changent is echoed in its procedure. Antoine, a French engineer (Gérard Depardieu), travels to Tangiers to supervise the construction of buildings for a new television station in the ‘free zone’. His

8 Transversal collaboration: an ethnography in/of computational social science Mette My Madsen, Anders Blok and Morten Axel Pedersen This chapter chronicles and reflects on the experiences of working ethnographically within, alongside and in collaboration with a largescale interdisciplinary experiment in so-called computational social science, one of the important transnational frontiers for the mobilisation of big social data in recent years. Starting in 2013, the three authors have taken part in the Social Fabric/Sensible DTU project, a large

’s length” distance’ with the Gulf States due to ‘(a) our historical association and role in their transition to nationhood’ and ‘(b) our continuing collaboration over national security matters and defence equipment’. 60 The second point to be made is that the American influence in the region steadily increased during the 1970s but was qualitatively different from that which Britain had exercised. Instead of

. Marais’s role and status vis-á–vis Cocteau is certainly more significant than that of actor/model in the style, say, of Robert Bresson’s unknown ‘models’. Indeed, despite Marais’s disciplined, hardworking nature and his constant avowal that he owed everything to Cocteau, a father figure who had both formed and transformed him, there was always an underlying tension to their collaboration. In later interviews Marais explained

Political reality and religious principle, 1945–56

5 Cracks in the ‘cordial collaboration’: political reality and religious principle, 1945–56 The State does not exist to do for individuals and families … what they can do reasonably well themselves; the State should not supplant them when they can partly do things but should supplement their efforts; finally the State is there to do for them what they cannot at all do for themselves.1 The stringency of the Emergency period, the sustained atmosphere of deprivation throughout the 1940s and the British White Paper, A National Health Service (1944) stimulated

. 135 They were still helping and promoting each other in the pages of local and national newspapers in the 1960s and 1970s. By this time both women had faded from public view, and it appears that a number of the articles written by and about each other had at least in part the purpose of attempting to cement their reputations before their deaths, thus continuing six decades of professional collaboration. 136 During the interwar years, women’s status as public intellectuals and journalists was still highly contested and we have seen in this chapter how professional

7 Translation and collaboration in Renaissance Dublin Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin Translation is an essential activity of a literate age, when that is also an age of multilingual communication. This truth seems especially relevant in Ireland, which like the rest of Europe inherits the polyglot culture of a Christianity inflected by classical learning. In addition, Ireland (like many European countries) is a place where the dominance of a single vernacular has been impossible for almost one thousand years.1 While the Irish middle ages are alive with translation, the

A Model for Historical Reflection in the Humanitarian Sector

, we hope to open a conversation about the ways in which the humanitarian sector can develop formal (and fruitful) collaborations with academic historians and to integrate some of their methods into their work practices. Humanitarian History and Policy The impetus for this project came from a growing interest in history within the aid industry. The humanitarian sector’s engagement with its past has expanded significantly since the beginning

Past crimes, present memories
Author: Claire Gorrara

French crime fiction and the Second World War explores France's preoccupation with memories of the Second World War through an examination of crime fiction, one of popular culture's most enduring literary forms. The study analyses representations of the war years in a selection of French crime novels from the late 1940s to the 2000s. All the crime novels discussed grapple with the challenges of what it means for generations past and present to live in the shadow of the war: from memories of French resistance and collaboration to Jewish persecution and the legacies of the concentration camps. The book argues that crime fiction offers novel ways for charting the two-way traffic between official discourses and popular reconstructions of such a contested conflict in French cultural memory.
