    Shakespeare and fear

    Congrès 2017 de la Société Française Shakespeare

    En ces temps de violences économiques, d’angoisses écologiques, de migrations forcées, de guerres et de terrorismes, il apparaît pertinent d’examiner les manières dont les scènes élisabéthaine et jacobéenne ont thématisé et utilisé la peur, et de réfléchir aux résonances qu’elles continuent de susciter aujourd’hui. On citera à cet égard le livre de Robert Appelbaum, qui n’hésite pas à nommer « terrorisme » la violence qui a secoué la société anglaise de la première modernité, du massacre de la Saint-Barthélemy aux complots et aux révoltes populaires. Le rapport entre Shakespeare et la peur passe notamment par les réappropriations des pièces dans le contexte des crises que nous traversons aujourd’hui. Comment se sert-on ou s’est-on appuyé sur Shakespeare pour conjurer la peur, ou pour déconstruire les mécanismes de la terreur, tant celle de la dictature que celle des attentats aveugles.

    Police and Public Order in France and England (1750-1850)

    Perspectives from current historiography

    Traditional historiography has often opposed the French police model to its English counterpart. However, for twenty years, many researchers relativized the differences of these models and focused more on the interactions between cultures of social control. Recent studies have shown the limits of approaches focused on the only national police models as well as the importance of the circulation of police knowledge and technics in the late 18th century and early 19th century. Everywhere in Europe, this period is marked by the will to reform and by reflections on the procedures for the exercise of the police. Through a panel of international researchers, the conference aims to investigate beyond the national perspective by questioning the permanence and changes in police practices on both sides of the Channel. We will ultimately highlight the major trends of contemporary historiography and identify new paths of work.
