    OK Computer, twenty years on

    Radiohead’s musical, cultural, and political legacies

    Following a symposium held at Rennes 2 University last may, further contributions (in English or French) are now sought in order to publish a wide-ranging, peer-reviewed collection of articles appraising OK Computer’s musical, cultural and political legacy twenty years after its release. The aim of this publication is to bring together contributions from scholars who wish to confront Radiohead’s work with their own disciplinary methodologies, including (but not limited to) musicology, sociology, art history, political science, literature, cultural studies or even economics.

    Rethinking Right-Wing Women

    Gender, Women and the Conservative Party, 1880s to the Present

    The Liberal Party in Britain : Past and Present

    Le Parti libéral, majoritaire en 1906, devient minoritaire à partir de 1910. Le gouvernement est néanmoins resté aux mains de libéraux, au moins partiellement, jusqu’en 1924. De même, membre de la coalition gouvernementale en 2010, le Parti libéral n’a pas été sans influence sous les gouvernements précédents. L'histoire se répète-t-elle ? Les pistes qui seront explorées sont celles qui permettent d’expliquer pourquoi et à quel moment, le parti libéral a perdu le pouvoir, et, pourquoi et à quel moment, il l’a retrouvé.
