French History and Civilization: Papers from the George Rudé Seminar, a new journal in French history.
French History and Civilization is a new peer-reviewed journal published biennially following each meeting of the George Rudé Seminar, the chief scholarly conference for French culture and history in Australia and New Zealand. This inaugural issue is the result of a particularly stimulating conference hosted by Melbourne and Monash Universities in 2004. Its editors, Ian Coller, Helen Davies and Julie Kalman, are scholars in the History Department at the University of Melbourne.
In this issue, contributions are grouped under four broad themes: 'Borders and Boundaries;' 'Insiders and Outsiders;' 'Cultural Identities: Sound and Image' and 'Embodied Identities.' These themes reflect common questions about French identity at a time when this identity is no longer a self-evident proposition. Contributors include Susan Foley, David Garrioch, Dominique Godineau, Peter Jones, Peter McPhee, Pamela Pilbeam, Charles Sowerwine and Timothy Tackett, eminent scholars from the United States, Europe, New Zealand and Australia.
French History and Civilization is published by the George Rudé Society, an association of scholars from Australia and New Zealand named in honour of the eminent historian whose residence in Australia during the 1960s and 1970s formed a generation of scholars. The electronic version of the journal is hosted by H-France, and is freely available to the public at www.h-france.net.
The journal is available in hard copy at a cost of $29.95 per copy, plus postage, from the George Rudé Society
