Adapting Nineteenth-Century France uses the output of six canonical novelists and their recreations in a variety of media to push for a re-conceptualisation of our approach to the study of adaptation. The works of Balzac, Hugo, Flaubert, Zola, Maupassant and Verne reveal themselves not as originals to be defended from adapting hands, but fashioned from the adapted voices of a host of earlier artists, moments and media. The text analyses re-workings of key nineteenth-century texts across time and media in order to underline the way in which such re-workings cast new light on many of their source texts and reveal the probing analysis nineteenth-century novelists undertake in relation to notions of originality and authorial borrowing. Moreover, Adapting Nineteeth-Century France traces their subsequent recreations in a comparable range of genres, encompassing key modern media of the twentieth- and twenty-first-centuries: radio, silent film, fiction, musical theatre, sound film and television.

In an era of commemoration, France's Colonial Legacies contributes to the debates taking place in France about the place of empire in the contemporary life of the nation, debates that have been underway since the 1990s and that now reach across public life and society with manifestations in the French parliament, media and universities. France's empire and the gradual process of its loss is one of the defining narratives of the contemporary nation, contributing to the construction of its image both on the international stage and at home. While certain intellectuals present the imperial period as an historical irrelevance that ended in the years following the Second World War, the contested legacies of France's colonies continue to influence the development of French society in the view of scholars of the postcolonial. This volume surveys the memorial practices and discourses that are played out in a range of arenas, drawing on the expertise of researchers working in the fields of politics, media, cultural studies, literature and film to offer a wide-ranging picture of remembrance in contemporary France.

Travel writing, migrant writing, exile writing, expatriate writing, and even the fictional travelling protagonists that emerge in literary works from around the globe, have historically tended to depict mobility as a masculine phenomenon. The presence of such genres in women’s writing, however, poses a rich and unique body of work. This volume examines the texts of Francophone women who have experienced or reflected upon the experience of transnational movement. Due to the particularity of their relationship to home, and the consequent impact of this on their experience of displacement, the study of women's mobility opens up new questions in our understanding of the movement from place to place, and in our broader understanding of colonial and postcolonial worlds. Addressing the proximities and overlaps that exist between the experiences of women exiles, migrants, expatriates and travellers, the collected essays in this book seek to challenge the usefulness, relevance or validity of such terms for conceptualising today’s complex patterns of transnational mobility and the gendered identities produced therein.

An Biographien über Napoléon herrscht kein Mangel. Die neue umfangreiche Schilderung seines Lebens von Patrice Gueniffey unterscheidet sich fundamental von den bisherigen Darstellungen. Sie rückt Bonaparte in den Zusammenhang der Moderne. Für Gueniffey ist diese historische Gestalt beispielhaft für die Neuzeit: Er repräsentiert jenen Typus, der seiner Meinung nach selbst die widrigsten Umstände bezwingen kann, vorausgesetzt, er hat die entsprechende Begabung, Energie und Tatkraft. Diese Vorstellung des modernen Menschen ist, wie diese Biographie für Bonaparte belegt, mit den historischen Gegebenheiten nicht vereinbar: Sie deckt hinter den Intention von Bonaparte die Selbstlogik unabhängiger Prozesse wie die Initiierung solcher angeblich historischen Abläufe die Spuren subjektiven Handelns auf. Bonaparte zeigte sich in relativ kurzer Zeit in vielen, voneinander abweichenden, Rollen: er war unter anderem korsischer Patriot, (während der Französischen Revolution) Verfechter des Jakobinismus, Thermidorianer, ein „Feldherr“, er war Diplomat, Schöpfer eines neuen Rechts, republikanischer Diktator, Begründer einer Erbmonarchie: Die vorliegende Biographie widmet sich in aller Ausführlichkeit und Genauigkeit diesen Positionen: von der des jungen Napoléon bis zur Selbstermächtigung als Konsul auf Lebenszeit im Jahre 1802. Damit macht Patrice Gueniffey, verständlich, unterhaltsam, anhand neuer Forschungsergebnisse und überraschender Einblicke und Synthesen, nachvollziehbar, warum Bonaparte zu Napoléon wurde.
