La démocratisation de l'informatique, puis des usages de l'internet, de la téléphonie mobile, ou plus récemment d'autres objets communicants génèrent une profusion de traces numériques gardant en mémoire les actions des usagers. Approuvé par certains qui y voient l'opportunité d'améliorer la sécurité publique, la relation marchande ou encore leur propre confort quotidien, ce constat fait craindre à d'autres l'avènement d'une société de la surveillance érodant le respect de la vie privée. Cet ouvrage étudie la notion d'espace privé à l'ère du numérique. Il montre comment les changements technologiques, de services et d'usages redéfinissent l'acceptation traditionnelle de la vie privée fondée sur des normes, et comment, en complément du dispositif normatif existant, des modalités de régulation appropriables par les individus sont envisagées.

The papers in this volume were among the contributions presented at an international symposium, Ancient Marriage in Myth and Reality, which was held at the Swedish Institute in Rome in October 2006. The symposium was held under the aegis of ARACHNE—the Nordic network for women’s history and gender studies in Antiquity. The study of ancient marriage has been largely the province of historians working with texts, and the result of this was an emphasis on elite marriages discussed by the male writers of the upper classes and on laws pertaining to marriage. Neither area has been exhausted, as several essays in this new international collection indicate, but the balance among the papers reveals the shift in focus. Along with innovative readings of authors from Livy to Porphyry, we find examinations of demographic and contractual evidence as well as inscriptions and visual imagery. Among the contributors to the volume are: Pauline Schmitt Pantel, Judith Evans Grubbs, Ray Laurence, Marjatta Nielsen and Mary Harlow.

Pour la première fois en 20 ans, le rapport La Situation des enfants dans le monde de l’UNICEF examine le problème des enfants, de la nourriture et de la nutrition, fournissant une perspective actuelle sur un problème en rapide mutation. Malgré les progrès accomplis au cours des deux dernières décennies, un tiers des enfants de moins de 5 ans souffrent de malnutrition, sous la forme d’un retard de croissance, d’une émaciation ou d’un surpoids, tandis que deux tiers sont exposés à un risque de malnutrition ou de faim insoupçonnée en raison de la piètre qualité de leur alimentation. Ces schémas reflètent le triple fardeau de la malnutrition, à savoir la dénutrition, la faim insoupçonnée et le surpoids, qui menace la survie, la croissance et le développement des enfants et des nations. Un système alimentaire dysfonctionnel, qui ne donne pas aux enfants l’alimentation dont ils ont besoin pour grandir en bonne santé, se trouve au coeur de ce problème. Ce rapport fournit des données et des analyses uniques sur la malnutrition au

Castles and the Anglo-Norman World is a major new synthesis drawing together a series of 20 papers by 26 French and English specialists in the field of Anglo-Norman studies. It includes summaries of current knowledge and new research into important Norman castles in England and Normandy, drawing on information from recent excavations. Sections consider the evolution of Anglo-Norman castles, the architecture and archaeology of Norman monuments, Romanesque architecture and artifacts, the Bayeux Tapestry and the presentation of historic sites to the public. These studies are presented together with a consideration of the 12th century cross-Channel Norman Empire, which provides a broader context. This work is the result of a conference held at Norwich Castle in 2012, which was part of a collaboration between professionals in the fields of archaeology, architecture, museums and heritage, under the banner of the Norman Connections Project.

By the time of his death in 1904, critics, arts reformers, and government officials were near universal in their praise of Art Nouveau designer Emile Gallé (1846–1904), whose works they described as the essence of French design. Many even went so far as to argue that the artist’s creations could reinvigorate France’s fading arts industries and help restore its economic prosperity by defining a modern style to represent the nation. For fin-de-siècle viewers, Gallé’s works constituted powerful reflections on the idea of national belonging, modernity, and the role of the arts in political engagement. While existing scholarship has largely focused on the artist’s innovative technical processes, a close analysis of Gallé’s works brings to light the surprisingly complex ways in which his fragile creations were imbricated in the political turmoil that characterized fin-de-siècle France. Examining Gallé’s works inspired by Japanese art, his patriotically inflected designs for the Universal Exposition of 1889, his artistic manifesto in support of Dreyfus created in 1900, and finally, his late works that explore the concept of evolution, this book reveals how Gallé returns again and again to the question of national identity as the central issue in his work.

In 1921 David Ross McCord (1844-1930) founded the McCord Museum of Canadian History, which first opened in the Jessie Joseph House of McGill University. McCord's ancestors had come from Ireland to settle in Canada after the Seven Years War. Although they were initially merchants, by the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries the McCords derived most of their wealth from the management of seigneurial land and from the subdivision of Temple Grove, their mountain estate which covered the area now bounded by Côte des Neiges Road and Cedar Avenue. This record of the McCords and their interest in religion, education and science reflect the intellectual trends of the era. David Ross McCord sought to collect in the broadest and most objective manner, and his pursuit of his dream to create a national museum of Canadian history provides valuable insight into the evolution of Montreal.
