  • Women and Work in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries
    • Abstract: FOR SEVERAL decades now, historians of women have analysed the ways in which women’s work spanned the divide between paid and unpaid labour and that between formal and informal economies. The first three articles in this issue illustrate the wide range of strategies deployed by women in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to earn their livelihood and achieve some degree of financial autonomy. In this period, the ideological border between public and private spheres—a border that was always both malleable and porous—was less rigid than it would become towards the end of the nineteenth century. Elwin Hofman’s article on prostitutes in the Southern Netherlands in the second half of the eighteenth ... Read More

  • Managing Stigma: Prostitutes and their Communities in the Southern
           Netherlands, 1750–1800
    • Abstract: CATHARINA Van Laer was only 18 years old when, in 1785, her older sister Joanna filed a request to have her confined. Joanna wrote to Antwerp’s aldermen about her sad situation: their father was all but blind and unable to control his youngest daughter Catharina, who “had for a long time been in the company of infamous persons and other scum” and was “openly serving as a whore and a bitch.” For a while, she had stayed in Brussels and in Mechelen, but now she had returned to Antwerp and continued her “unruly life and public scandal.” To prevent further excesses, “to the even greater scandal and heartfelt grief of the supplicant,” she had to be locked away. The aldermen agreed and ordered for Catharina to be ... Read More

  • Stretching a “Slender Purse” in Mid-Nineteenth-Century Ontario: Mary
           Gordon Copleston’s Narrative
    • Abstract: IN 1861 MARY Gordon Copleston published Canada: Why We Live in it, and Why We Like it.1 While promoted in England as a gentlewoman’s guide for new emigrants, it was also a very personal memoir of Copleston’s then four years’ residence in Canada West.2 She intended her book to resemble closely Susanna Moodie’s and Catharine Parr Traill’s pioneering works on cultivating the Canadian wilderness, but from a later and more sanguine perspective. In addition to her impressions of colonial life, she also included factual information about running a rented farm along the banks of the St. Lawrence River in the Brockville area. The narrative behind her little book shows how she, and presumably other British ... Read More

  • “Due Attention Has Been Paid to All Rules”: Women, Tavern Licences,
           and Social Regulation in Montreal, 1840–1860
    • Abstract: IN JANUARY 1841, the widow Anne Sutherland Sawyer applied for a renewal of her tavern licence. She reminded authorities that, for the past eight years since she had operated her nine-bedroom establishment on Capital Street, “due attention has been paid to all Rules and Regulations imposed.”1 Requiring a continuation of a tavern licence to support her family following the death of John Sawyer in 1834, Sutherland Sawyer had good reason to be concerned. She had married him in 1832 after the death of his wife, Agnes Brown, a year earlier. In the ensuing two years since the nuptials, Sutherland Sawyer became stepmother to 11-year-old William, mother to Elizabeth who was born in 1833, and a widow at age 41. The ... Read More

  • L’Orient comme miroir : les altérités orientale et autochtone dans les

    • Abstract: L’IMPORTANCE de l’orientalisme au XIXe siècle pour l’histoire culturelle et politique de l’Europe, et surtout de la France, est bien connue1. D’autres études ont également montré comment cet imaginaire s’est manifesté en périphérie des grands centres culturels européens2. Qu’en est-il au Québec ' Le XIXe siècle québécois a-til été orientaliste ' Comment la société canadienne-française s’est-elle abreuvée à l’orientalisme ' L’intérêt et la fascination pour l’Orient méditerranéen ont été très peu étudiés par l’historiographie québécoise et canadienne3. Les travaux existants, principalement produits dans une perspective littéraire, ont porté sur le XXe siècle et exploré « de façon privilégiée la place et la ... Read More

  • A Few Fabulous Fragments: Historical Methods in James P. Howley’s
           The Beothucks
    • Abstract: WE KNOW when James Patrick Howley started collecting anecdotes and artefacts of the Beothuk. In July 1871 he was travelling in Notre Dame Bay on behalf of the Geological Survey of Newfoundland when he met John Peyton Jr. Then in his 78th year, Peyton was the furrier who, along with his father, had seized Demasduit and in whose household Shanawdithit had lived. This chance encounter set Howley on a path of more than 40 years of research, and culminated in the publication of The Beothucks or Red Indians in 1915.1 It remained the definitive collection of texts on the subject until 1996 when Ingeborg Marshall’s History and Ethnography was published.2 While Howley’s book served as the essential source for ...

  • Welland Ontario’s Springfield Plan: Post-War Canadian Citizenship
           Training, American Style'
    • Abstract: IT HAPPENED in Springfield, a film produced by Warner Brothers for United States Army Education in 1945, was a widely used tool for citizenship training in Ontario in the years immediately after the Second World War. The film told the story of Bill Knudson, a young American soldier, wounded overseas, who returns to his home town with a buddy to find his home in ruins and his father, an immigrant grocer, in hospital. Bill learns that a local political boss incited townspeople to destroy the store and beat up his father, after his father refused to influence the voting of fellow immigrants. Bill’s buddy, disturbed by this example of discrimination, tells townspeople that Bill Knudson had saved his life on the ... Read More

Comme le souligne William Moss, « les conditions et l’accès évoluent, mais probablement moins vite et moins systématiquement que ce qui paraît tolérable à des utilisateurs occidentaux1 ». Néanmoins, les archives publiques de tous les niveaux (nationales, provinciales, municipales, de districts) constituent désormais un matériau empirique incontournable pour celles et ceux qui se donnent pour objectif de mieux comprendre la ...

  • Revisiter l’Holocauste au XXIe siècle
    • Abstract: Les œuvres historiques sur la Shoah écrites dans la seconde moitié du XXe siècle présentent des perceptions des événements et des analyses souvent divergentes et témoignent d’une historiographie en rapide évolution. D’abord, les historiens ne s’entendaient pas tous sur la nature des politiques nazies ni sur leurs conséquences. Certains considéraient la destruction des Juifs d’Europe comme le fruit d’un antisémitisme « éliminationniste » datant du XIXe siècle ; d’autres, au contraire, croyaient que les dirigeants nazis avaient plutôt été forcés à mettre en œuvre l’extermination totale des Juifs par une suite d’événements exceptionnels. Ces positions divergentes ont entraîné, à la fin des années 1980, une ... Read More

  • The Reichstag Fire and the Politics of History
    • Abstract: Burning the Reichstag is an intervention in the long and bitter debate about who set fire to the Reichstag on February 27, 1933. More importantly, it is an examination of how historians’ interpretations of this episode of Nazi history were influenced by former Nazis seeking to resume careers in the Federal Republic and those who assisted them in doing so, the dynamics of the Cold War, and possibly some historians’ fear of public calumny and libel suits. The book has much to teach about the methods by which powerful individuals and states have manipulated, and presumably still manipulate, interpretations of events past and present. The blaze that gutted the chamber in which the German parliament ... Read More

  • Scripting Revolution: A Historical Approach to the Comparative Study of
           Revolutions ed. by Keith Michael Baker, Dan Edelstein (review)
    • Abstract: The recent uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa, the “Arab Spring,” demonstrated the continuing importance of revolution to world history. As the editors of this fascinating collection of essays point out, the usual approach to the comparative study of revolutions has been sociological. The basic methodological framework for this approach, which can be traced back to Karl Marx, insists that the essential causes of revolutions are socio-economic conflicts: the political crises that launch revolutions or change their direction are seen as secondary phenomena, indicative of deeper structural tensions. Yet, since the 1970s, investigations of specific revolutions have turned increasingly to hermeneutic ... Read More

    • Abstract: En 2002, le monde politique québécois fut secoué par la mise en œuvre d’un processus de fusions municipales qui fit couler beaucoup d’encre et mobilisa de nombreux acteurs. Un peu moins de quatre ans plus tard, une série de banlieues viscéralement opposées à cette transformation obtenaient gain de cause devant les tribunaux. En janvier 2006, 15 d’entre elles, situées sur l’île de Montréal, recouvraient leur autonomie. Au gré d’innombrables débats politiques, judiciaires et médiatiques, ces municipalités furent souvent présentées comme des bastions anglophones qui, tantôt pour des raisons ethnolinguistiques et financières, tantôt par simple égoïsme, refusaient de s’intégrer au reste de Montréal. ...

Une histoire qui ne s’est écrite qu’à partir de l’arrivée des Européens à la fin du XVIIIe siècle, mais qui remonte à plusieurs siècles pour les premiers habitants, les Polynésiens maoris arrivés au XIIIe siècle. Or, Brookes présente l’histoire parallèle et croisée tant des femmes maories que des femmes pakehas (d’ascendance européenne). Le récit adopte une trame chronologique, sur quatorze chapitres, qui se poursuit jusqu’au XXIe siècle, débutant avant les premiers contacts entre Maoris et Européens, pour couvrir toutes les grandes ...

  • Imperial Plots: Women, Land, and the Spadework of British Colonialism on
           the Canadian Prairies by Sarah Carter (review)
    • Abstract: In Imperial Plots, Sarah Carter continues her important research agenda of reframing the history of western settlement from the viewpoints of those excluded from the dominant historical narrative. The perspective she offers is that of a patriarchal settler colonialism that aggressively displaced the Native population and shaped the Canadian West as the privileged domain of heterosexual white imperial masculinity. In this latest book, she focuses on women’s roles as farmers, in particular their struggle over homesteading rights over more than 50 years, from the late 1870s to the 1930s. Meticulously researched, it is an engaging but ultimately somewhat discouraging tale of the continued resistance of the ... Read More

  • Tourist Distractions: Traveling and Feeling in Transnational Hallyu Cinema

    • Abstract: “Hallyu-lujah!” (p. 8) is what departments of Korean studies around the globe might want to shout, given the huge numbers of students who have recently decided to devote four of their best years in life to the study of Korean language and culture thanks to their interest in hallyu. Hallyu, or the Korean Wave(s), first broke in the late 1990s, with additional surges in 2003 and 2012. Hallyu is generally associated with globally distributed South Korean television series and pop music, but can be broadly considered to include all exported South Korean cultural products. Korean cinema is not generally considered to be a driving force behind any Korean Wave, and it played a relatively minor role in this cultural ... Read More

  • La guerre de Sept Ans, 1756–1763 by Edmond Dziembowski (review)
    • Abstract: Between 1754 and 1763, the Seven Years’ War spread around the world. Fighting raged across Europe, the Americas, and India, redrawing borders and shattering empires as the French and British vied for dominance. However important the battles of Rossbach, Minden, Plassey, and the Plains of Abraham may have been, Edmond Dziembowski draws attention to a parallel, cultural war between the European contenders. The historic campaigns prompted an outpouring of patriotic literature and art on both sides of the English Channel as the public sphere itself became a battleground. Away from the front lines, radical ideologies, some of which had been germinating for decades, had found an outlet. For Dziembowski, these ... Read More

  • Fault Lines: Life and Landscape in Saskatchewan’s Oil Economy by Emily

    • Abstract: In twenty-first-century Saskatchewan, oil “looks like freedom, but feels like death” (p. 98). These lyrics from Leonard Cohen’s 1992 song “Closing Time,” sprawled across an oil tanker railcar in Stoughton, Saskatchewan, serve as both a fitting description of our society’s troubled relationship with oil and a rather succinct conclusion for Emily Eaton’s and Valerie Zink’s book, Fault Lines: Life and Landscape in Saskatchewan’s Oil Economy. The image of the tanker is one of 77 photos by Zink that accompany 29 pages of text by Eaton, which together attempt to capture the contradictions and complexities of oil development in rural Saskatchewan between 2011 and 2015. Despite its short length, Fault Lines provides ... Read More

  • So Far and yet So Close: Frontier Cattle Ranching in Western Prairie
           Canada and the Northern Territory of Australia by Warren M. Elofson
           (review)
    • Abstract: So Far and yet So Close is an environmental history comparing the nineteenth-century cattle-ranching industry in Canada’s Prairie West with Australia’s Northern Territory. The two industries had a great deal in common: their foundation was the natural resource of tens of thousands of hectares of arid grassland supporting free-ranging cattle at low stocking densities; they relied on an equestrian labour force that was largely young and male; and both regions had to overcome the challenges of animal disease, climatic adversity, and remoteness. The narrative focuses on the impact of environmental conditions on human behaviour and observes the remarkable similarity in the ways that humans adapt to environmental ... Read More

           Gibson-Brydon (review)
    • Abstract: Charles Booth and his vast survey of London poverty around the turn of the twentieth century has attracted attention from numerous historians, both as a source of information on everyday life among the poor and as a document of middle-class attitudes to poverty in the late-Victorian years. However, Booth also paid considerable attention to the religious life of the London poor and how religion could provide a “way out” from destitution, an aspect of his work that has been strangely neglected. The Moral Mapping of Victorian and Edwardian London is an attempt to draw attention to the third section of Booth’s 17-volume The Life and Labour of the People in London, the seven volumes published in 1902–1903 under ...

    • Abstract: What images of the seigneurial regime, Jean-René Thuot asks in this volume, should we wish to preserve today' For many people outside Québec, and particularly non-historians, seigneurial tenure probably evokes an antiquated image from the distant past. If English-speakers have much notion of it, they likely conjure up the long lots spreading back from the banks of the St. Lawrence and its tributaries but may fail to realize that the shapes of lots were not a required component of seigneurial tenure. Following the important works of Fernand Ouellet, Louise Dechêne, and Allan Greer, among others, historians are apt to associate the property regime with the exploitative relations of seigneurs and their tenants ...

  • Lunch-Bucket Lives: Remaking the Workers’ City by Craig Heron

    • Abstract: With 340,000 words in the main text, a further 75,000 in the 130 pages of footnotes, more than a hundred illustrations, a 50-page bibliography, and 45 tables online, this is a magnum opus in every sense of the term. Ian McKay calls it a masterpiece, and I can see why. Craig Heron integrates feminist and labour historiography in a rich description of how Canada’s leading industrial city was transformed in the early twentieth century. The historical argument, that there was change but little improvement for the working class, will surprise many, but it is his historiographical argument that will fuel debates for years to come. Heron argues that gender is fundamental to class formation, in a way that the social ... Read More

    • Abstract: A Nervous State is certainly one of the most elegant books I have seen over the last years and an impressive attempt at entangling, and at discussing entangled, narratives. It follows the continuities of coerced labour and the fact of segregation through the Belgian colonial state in the Congo after the classical (and all too real) horror story of violent Congo Free-State practices had subsided. In its second half, the book engages with the “developmentalist machine” that meant improving local welfare, but also installing (from the colonizers’ point of view) efficient techniques of health control and securitization in the 1940s and 1950s (p. 10). Nancy Rose Hunt takes various rural regions adjacent to one ... Read More

           McGee (review)
    • Abstract: The parliamentary diaries kept by the MP Simonds D’Ewes are crucial sources for the Long Parliament, while his autobiography affords important insights into Puritan piety and family relationships. While most historians have used just a few of D’Ewes’ manuscripts, however, Sears McGee’s authoritative account is founded on half a century’s research in the complete archive: 70 volumes of diaries, letters, notes, and drafts in both Latin and English. Many scholars have found the sources more interesting than their author, often dismissed as a prig and a pedant. McGee is aware of such views, but provides a fundamentally sympathetic and also a more complex and satisfying picture of D’Ewes, as “a Puritan, a ... Read More

    • Abstract: Until at least the early twentieth century in northwestern Europe and North America (and long after that elsewhere), a large majority of the world’s population was rural, yet these people were mainly visible to historians through the eyes of outsiders (in documents representing the views of government officials, the upper classes, travel writers, critics, and religious institutions, for example). This view contributed to a powerful (and tenacious) stereotype that rural worlds were simple and homogeneous, populated by undifferentiated stock characters from central historical casting (a timeless tradition-bound peasantry, a virtuous yeomanry, hardy pioneers). In an effort to get beyond such understandings ... Read More

Or les repères, selon Jean-Claude Schmitt, sont dans tous les domaines de la vie sociale, qu’il s’agisse d’un rythme de travail, de course à pied, de jazz ou du passage des ans et des saisons. Mais, si les rythmes « caractérisent respectivement et sans rapport entre elles toutes les facettes et les strates hétérogènes de notre monde » (p. 17), il en allait tout autrement dans la civilisation de l’Occident médiéval, pour laquelle le rythmus, sémantiquement proche du langage et de la musique, désignait plutôt l’unité ordonnée et dynamique de la Création. Mais comment appréhender les rythmes ... Read More

    • Abstract: As scholars of the French Revolution (and almost every revolution since) have noted, national identity and ideological convictions can be expressed in the smallest items of dress, interior decoration, and domestic habits; such manifestations usually trumpet their owners’ values. In Hitler at Home, Despina Stratikagos examines how Hitler collaborated with architects and interior designers, in a more subtle fashion, to produce a private life that could be marketed to the public. The goal was to create the desired impression on visitors, both German and foreign, building on widely shared notions of German domesticity and respectability. Stratigakos asserts that “scholars of architecture and fascist aesthetics ... Read More

  • Religious Refugees in the Early Modern World: An Alternative History of
           the Reformation by Nicholas Terpstra (review)
    • Abstract: Much has been written on religious refugees in the early modern period: on Jews, the Ashkenazim and the Sephardim, on Moriscos, on Anabaptists, Dutch and English Catholics, Moravian brothers (and sisters), Huguenots, Salzburgers, Bohemian Protestants, and many others. Much of this scholarship, however, treats of one religious refugee group and does not look at the phenomenon of religious persecutions and migrations from a holistic, comparative, and entangled perspective. Therefore, Nicholas Terpstra’s book is a welcome contribution to this research field on persecutions, migrations, religious refugees, and re-settlement in the early modern period, a field that is indeed in need of a more comparative and ...

  • Transnational Radicals: Italian Anarchists in Canada and the U.S.,
           1915–1940 by Travis Tomchuk (review)
    • Abstract: Le livre de Travis Tomchuk sur l’immigration italienne et l’anarchisme au Canada et aux États-Unis s’inscrit dans une histoire en construction : celle de l’apport des populations migrantes à l’anarchisme en Amérique, voire celle d’un anarchisme qui est principalement le fait de populations migrantes. Pour l’Amérique du Nord, rappelons la parution de Beer and Revolution: The German Anarchist Movement in New York City, 1880–1914, de Tom Goyens (University of Illinois Press, 2007), qui proposait une analyse des pratiques culturelles des anarchistes d’ascendance allemande, par exemple les cercles de lecture, les chorales et les troupes de théâtre, les clubs de tir et les pique-niques (des milliers d’anarchistes ...

  • Religion and Trade: Cross-Cultural Exchanges in World History, 1000–1900
           par Francesca Trivellato, Leor Halevi, Cátia Antunes (review)
    • Abstract: Que les religions furent un élément constitutif des identités prémodernes et qu’elles contribuèrent à façonner les comportements économiques et les réseaux de solidarité est indéniable. En revanche, il est peu probable qu’elles aient été jusqu’à l’avènement du capitalisme moderne un obstacle au développement du commerce de longue distance et aux échanges économiques interculturels. Convaincus de l’importance de tels échanges durant le dernier millénaire malgré la force des sentiments religieux, les directeurs de la publication de Religion and Trade: Cross-Cultural Exchanges in World History, 1000–1900 ont ainsi cherché à rendre compte de l’influence des discours théologiques sur les pratiques marchandes et ...
