Christian-Muslim Relations, a Bibliographical History 21 (CMR 21), covering Southern Europe, in the period 1800-1914, is a further volume in a general history of relations between the two faiths from the 7th century to the early 20th century. It comprises a series of introductory essays and the main body of detailed entries. These treat all the works, surviving or lost, that have been recorded. They provide biographical details of the authors, descriptions and assessments of the works themselves, and complete accounts of manuscripts, editions, translations and studies. The result of collaboration between numerous new and leading scholars, CMR 21, along with the other volumes in this series, is intended as a fundamental tool for research in Christian-Muslim relations.

This study breaks with traditional readings in terms of tragic model and tragic hero in the works of Racine and Corneille. It departs from the critical tradition of examining the tragic hero as an isolated figure, defined by autonomy; it approaches the behaviour of Médée, Clytemnestre, and Phèdre from a relational perspective. It argues that these female characters belong to the tragic hero category, hold valid and valuable ethical positions and deserve to be treated as equal to their male counterparts. It also redefines the way we look at the tragic dynamic. The characters are no longer antagonists but inadvertent collaborators working towards the tragic outcome in order to satisfy desires and beliefs about themselves and the world that are deeply rooted in their psyche. This book shows that alternative interpretations of the behaviour of Médée, Clytemnestre and Phèdre can be obtained and must be obtained by applying modern methodologies in order to challenge the biased readings from the past and to see these characters in a new light.
Le dandy entre littérature et histoire
Volume Editor:
Narcisse ? Cambrioleur ? Illusionniste ? Le dandy n’arrête pas de changer de rôles, de se mettre en scène afin de protéger son moi véritable et garder son indépendance. Or, ne l’oublions pas, sa première obligation est d’étonner. En tant que maître du jeu des apparences, il s’invente des poses et s’amuse à cacher son visage derrière de nombreux masques pour dérouter son public. De Fortunio à Arsène Lupin, sans oublier la femme dandy, de Saint-Just à Romain Gary, les seize études du présent ouvrage font défiler une exceptionnelle galerie de figures qui jalonnent l’histoire du dandysme. On y découvrira l’art d’être dandy et des incarnations inattendues, voire surprenantes de ce personnage mystérieux, aussi bien littéraires qu’historiques. Haut les masques donc ! Que le spectacle commence !

Narcissus? A burglar? An illusionist? The dandy never stops changing roles, putting himself on stage in order to protect his true self and maintain his independence. But let us not forget that his first obligation is to amaze. As a master of appearances, he invents poses and derives pleasure from hiding his face behind multiple masks to confuse his audience. From Fortunio to Arsène Lupin, not forgetting the dandy woman, from Saint-Just to Romain Gary, the sixteen studies in this book present an exceptional gallery of figures that delineate the history of dandyism. We will discover the art of being a dandy and unexpected, even surprising incarnations (both literary and historical) of this mysterious character. So, masks up! Let the show begin!
Transnational Perspectives on Premodern Literature in the Low Countries, 1200-1800
This volume explores the indispensability of a transnational perspective for the construction and writing of literary histories of the Low Countries from 1200-1800. It looks at the role of mediators such as translators, printers, and editors, at characteristics of literary genres and the possibilities they offered for literary boundary crossing and adaptation, and at the role of regions and urban centres as multilingual hubs. This collection demonstrates the centrality of transnational perspectives for elucidating the complex inter-relationship between Netherlandic and European literary history. The Low Countries were a dynamic site for new literary production and transnational exchange that shaped and reshaped the intellectual landscape of premodern Europe.
