Abstract

This article introduces the new dataset Cohort Component Population Estimates for Ireland, 1911–1920 (www.doi.org/10.5255/UKDA-SN-854673). The dataset provides vital statistics and cohort component population estimates at a spatially-disaggregated level for the island of Ireland for the period 1911–1920. The raw data were digitised by the authors using official UK government statistics. The population estimates were then derived by the cohort component method. These data provide novel intercensal population estimates at the county level that will be beneficial for researchers working in historical demography, as well as in economic and social history. The data provided can be readily reused and extended by other researchers to produce further series and indicators. An example application of the data in this manner is , who combine these population estimates with mortality statistics from the Spanish flu pandemic to demonstrate how demographic composition affects the interpretation of data on public health crises.

Editors’ Abstract

Because the subject of the previous contribution, Chrysovalantis Kyriacou’s “The Cypriot Peasant Revolt of 1426. Mentalities and Resistance in the Eastern Mediterranean,” is complex, controversial, and current in Cypriot politics and society, the author, the journal editors, and the three external readers agreed to reveal their identities and to establish a dialogue in the following manner: once Dr Kyriacou had revised his paper on the basis of the comments of the referees, they would write a companion article from their perspective. In this response, Grivaud, Nicolaou-Konnari, and Trélat argue that, given that the absence of revolts led by the Greek population of Cyprus during the island’s Lusignan rule (1192-1474/89) has fuelled many debates amongst scholars, it is not surprising that the so-called “Cypriot Peasant Revolt” of 1426-1427, an unicum, acquires the characteristics of mythology if interpreted to represent the emergence of the Greek peasantry as a political actor, inspired by the intention to overturn the equilibrium established on the island since Richard the Lionheart’s conquest. They thus offer what they term a detached assessment of the meagre historical evidence.

Résumé

La parution posthume des Inséparables invite à distinguer les deux modalités d’ écriture par lesquelles Beauvoir a fait revivre la figure majeure pour elle de Zaza (1907-1929), son amie d’ enfance et de jeunesse : la fiction puis l’ autobiographie ; et cela à la lumière des appréciations de l’ autrice et du pacte de lecture propre à chaque modalité d’ écriture. Ces approches successives sur plusieurs décennies témoignent de la fascination constante de Beauvoir pour Zaza et incitent le lecteur à prolonger l’ exploration beauvoirienne par les écrits mêmes de Zaza.

Abstract

Two crises of our age, refugee statelessness and sexual violence, converge in the lives of refugee women. This article examines this convergence by analyzing the meanings of refugee-camp sexual aggression and refugee women’s responses to it. Aligning Giorgio Agamben’s and Hannah Arendt’s ideas of refugee desubjectification with Simone de Beauvoir’s concept of gendered subjectivity, the author argues that refugee-camp men use sexual violence to reinstate their gendered subjectivity. In rejecting men’s demand that women accept their prerefugee, compromised subjectivity, refugee-camp women are rewriting the gendered subjectivity contract.

Résumé

La publication, en 2020, de la nouvelle de Beauvoir, désormais intitulée Les Inséparables, constitue une bonne surprise pour ses lecteur.trice.s. Jugée, en 1954, sans intérêt par son auteure (dont il faut interroger les motivations), elle se révèle passionnante pour comprendre la genèse des Mémoires d’ une jeune fille rangée, autobiographie qu’ elle annonce (sans l’ égaler). Elle intéresse également par elle-même, car elle apporte un éclairage supplémentaire sur l’ histoire tragique de Zaza, et sur l’ amitié qui l’ unit à la jeune Simone.

Abstract

The article links Simone de Beauvoir’s phenomenology and Catherine A. MacKinnon’s feminist, Marxist, standpoint epistemology in virtue of their shared recognition that objectivity is sexed and gendered. This connection is supported by Beauvoir’s close alignment with Edmund Husserl, for whom the question of embodied difference was vital for generating an account of intersubjectivity and locating sex in the historical subject. The article concludes that a consideration of both the transcendental and immanence are central to Beauvoir’s feminist phenomenology and feminist politics alike.

Résumé

Née en 1959, l’ autrice retrace depuis sa naissance 20 ans d’ histoire du prolétariat, de l’ engagement communiste, de l’ empreinte catholique, de l’ immigration en Europe et en Afrique du Nord, de la France des taudis et des banlieues. Ce parcours marqué par le féminisme et la lutte contre le patriarcat, l’ ascension et l’ intégration sociales, s’ inscrit dans les débats intellectuels de l’ époque sur le colonialisme, le racisme, le fascisme, le capitalisme, notamment portés par Boris Vian, Jean-Paul Sartre et Simone de Beauvoir, dont elle revendique la filiation.
