The Myth of Concordia

par Nadia Urbinati, publié le 23/02/2015

article.png The place of God in the constitution has been one of the most sensitive issues in the debate on the constitutional treaty of the European Union, and has influenced the process of ratification. In the five decades since the Treaty of Rome was signed in 1957, European leaders have tried to build a united Europe on a secular foundation of treaties and economic regulations. These no longer seem to be adequate to the task. Lately, efforts have been made to include another factor – religion...

Bertrand Tavernier sur le cinéma américain

par Bertrand Tavernier, Clifford Armion, publié le 20/10/2014

type-video.png texte.png entretien.png Dans le cadre du Festival Lumière 2014, Bertrand Tavernier évoque certaines grandes étapes de l’histoire du cinéma américain depuis les années 20 jusqu’aux années 60.

Scotland’s No

par Alistair Cole, publié le 29/09/2014

article.png Shortly before the Scottish referendum on independence, I visited the impressive city of Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city. Though the Scottish referendum eventually produced a No of over 55%, the once second largest city in the Empire was one of only four districts to vote Yes (just over 53%). I had correctly judged the atmosphere in this city, but elsewhere the story was rather different. In 28 of the remaining 32 districts, the No vote carried the day, including in SNP stronghold areas such as Angus and Perthshire...

Family Histories

par Ian Buruma, publié le 16/12/2013

article.png When I was at primary school in the Netherlands in the late 1950s and early 1960s, history was still taught as a story of great men, kings, generals, national heroes, and of course great villains, mostly foreigners. In our case, this meant a succession of Williams of Orange, Admiral Tromp, Philip II, the Duke of Alva, Napoleon, Hitler, and so on. As a reaction to this kind of thing, historians of the left began to focus on systems: fascist, late capitalist, communist, totalitarian. Hannah Arendt’s take on the Eichmann trial, though not the work of a typical leftist, contributed to this tendency, as did the work of Adorno. I have often suspected that they favored systemic analyses, because they couldn’t bring themselves to face what had gone so badly wrong specifically in their beloved Germany. The responsibility of Germans, such as Heidegger, was not the issue; it had to be a systemic failure.

Neoliberalism, De-Democratization, Sacrifice

par Wendy Brown, publié le 11/02/2013

article.png Neoliberalism, of course, is not unified or constant but differs across its geographical instantiations and transmogrifies over time. In the Euro Atlantic world today, two different and quite contingent forces are giving neoliberalism a new shape: on the one hand, financialization is configuring states, firms, associations and subjects in terms of capital valuation or credit worthiness (as opposed to productivity, efficiency, cost-benefit or interest maximization), and on the other hand, austerity regimes are effecting enormous shrinkages in human well being through cuts in jobs, pay, benefits and services.

De Sholem Aleichem à Charlie Chaplin, de Menahem Mendl au personnage de Charlot…

par Morgane Jourdren, publié le 19/11/2009

article.png Quel rapport peut-il bien y avoir entre Chaplin, père de Charlot et Sholem Aleikhem, écrivain yiddish mort au début du vingtième siècle ? A priori aucun, si ce n’est que ce dernier appréciait tout particulièrement les films du cinéaste. Pourtant, une lecture plus approfondie des pages écrites par Sholem Aleikhem où ces infatigables voyageurs que sont Menahem Mendl et Motl partent à la découverte de l’Amérique, nous permet de mieux comprendre ce que pouvait éprouver l’écrivain devant le spectacle du petit homme chaplinien aux prises avec un Nouveau-Monde qui lui est étranger.
