A history of the French in London: liberty, equality, opportunity

A history of the French in London: liberty, equality, opportunity

Description

Edited by Debra Kelly and Martyn Cornick. Published 2013. ISBN: 9781905165865 (hardback), 9781905165872 (ebook).

This book examines, for the first time, the history of the social, cultural, political and economic presence of the French in London, and explores the multiple ways in which this presence has contributed to the life of the city.

The capital has often provided a place of refuge, from the Huguenots in the 17th century, through the period of the French Revolution, to various exile communities during the 19th century, and on to the Free French in the Second World War.It also considers the generation of French citizens who settled in post-war London, and goes on to provide insights into the contemporary French presence by assessing the motives and lives of French people seeking new opportunities in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. It analyses the impact that the French have had historically, and continue to have, on London life in the arts, gastronomy, business, industry and education, manifest in diverse places and institutions from the religious to the political via the educational, to the commercial and creative industries.

Gender and historiography: Studies in the earlier middle ages in honour of Pauline Stafford

Gender and historiography: Studies in the earlier middle ages in honour of Pauline Stafford

Description

Edited by Janet L. Nelson, Susan Reynolds and Susan M. Johns. Published 2012. ISBN: 9781905165797 (hardback), 9781905165810 (ebook).

The chapters in this volume celebrate the work of Pauline Stafford, highlighting the ways in which it has advanced research in the fields of both Anglo-Saxon history and the history of medieval women and gender. Ranging across the period, and over much of the old Carolingian world as well as Anglo-Saxon England, they deal with such questions as the nature of kingship and queenship, fatherhood, elite gender relations, the transmission of property, the participation of women in lordship, slavery and warfare, and the nature of assemblies. Gender and historiography presents the fruits of groundbreaking research, inspired by Pauline Stafford’s own interests over a long and influential career.
