L'influence française sur l'art de bâtir Charleston (Caroline du Sud) présomptions récurrentes by France Coissard-Girard( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in French and held by 2 libraries worldwide
If american architecture, a product of the school of Chicago has brought about a radical break with the architectural concepts used previously in the United States, and if some metallic structures raise their dizzy heights in cities here and there, in South Carolina there remains, nestled in the bottleneck of the Charleston peninsula, a wonderfully preserved urban entity inherited from another era. A reflection of its creation, its development and its architectural preservation, Charleston reveals the way its builders originally created it. Although they were of different ethnic origins, all of them pooled their ancestral culture, their building skills, the techniques of their time, while at the same time assimilating themselves into the british majority, however most remained anonymous. Yet there remains without any doubt an undeniable reality : workmanship from France whose nationals made a handsome contribution to the creation of the city as did those from other countries. And yet, today's Charlestonians recognize only english influence in their architectural heritage. Therefore, as it seems unfair that the french minority should be ignored, since it it has been one component responsible for the creation of the city almost as much as that of the british majority, this thesis aims, through the photographs taken locally and used in the corpus, at showing the french influence thanks to the presence of numerous recurrent architectural principles and elements that were imported and carried out in the city's constructions. To prove the point, this comparative space-time study refers back to patterns from both Great Britain and France, to their implantation and adaptation in the west indies, french america and other northern american states. A chronological analysis of this architectural évolution enables us to realise that after having undergone influences from both Italy and France in numerous fields, Great Britain cannot claim to be the sole initiator of Charleston's architecture and that we have to give the french credit for their influence in the art of building the city
Treize ans de missionnariat beachy-amish en Europe occidentale (1981-1994) : premiers résultats et enseignements by Marie-Odile Allemang( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in French and held by 2 libraries worldwide
In the triumphant United States of the 1990's, what has interested us the life of Amish communities whose adventure began in Alsace. In the heart of the world's greatest power, these "plain people" continue to live as they did in the 17th century, when their movement first appeared in the mennonite milieu. The Amish, along with the mennonites and hutterites, are the last representatives of the anabaptist groups who arose in continental Europe in the 16th century. Whereas in Europe the Amish movement ended up by merging with the group from which it sprang, in the United States it occupies a place which is distinct from that of the mennonites, and it assumes a position which is in contrast with american society, a sociery it believes embodies the vanities of the world. However, the 20th century has witnessed the emergence within the Amish movement of a dissident group, the beachy amish, who partially accept technological progess, and who are motivated by a strong missionary instinct. Among other regions, they are attracted to Europe as a place to spread the gospel, and have tried to regain a foorhold on the European continent following the second world war-in Germany in the 1950's, in Alsace in 1981, in flemish belgium in 1986 and finally in Ireland in 1992. It is with these last three attempts of the Amish to reestablish themselves that our research is concerned. Focusing on the problems of education, language, and daily life, we have attempted to analyse the effects of cultural and religious shock of thid return to the continent of their origins, both upon the missionaries and upon their audience

Attrated by Far Eastern luxury reachable through the silk road open by the Mongols, Europeans wished to escape from greedy caravaneers. Vasco de Gama reached the Far East round the Cape of Good Hope, and Magellan reached it surrounding South America. The Dutch and The English sought the North-West road. The French thought about a transcontinental water way throught the "River of the West" and the "Western Sea", of which Verrazzano caught a glimpse, drawn by geographers among them Delisle. Cartier discovered the Saint-Lawrence River, Champlain extented the water way to the Great Lakes. Margry noticed Pierre de La Vérendrye (1685-1749) at the request of Lewis Cass. Margry was astonished by this bold man who dragged his family toward the "Western Sea", under informations picked of from Indians and from the map of Auchagah redrawn by Chaussegros ; building posts from Lake Superior to Lake Superior to Lake Manitoba, and on the Saskatchewan River, putting obstacles upon the Hudson Bay Indian's trade ; discovering the hydrographical net work of Lake Winnipeg and adjacent lakes, with rivers : Winnipic, Saskatchewan, Red from the North and its Assiniboin tributary swelled by the Qu'Appel and The Souris, which led to the Missouri River and the Mandans, and even to the Bighorn. He saw him suffer the worst hardships : defamation, little regards from his Minister, death of his nephew, and his first son and Father Aulneau slaughtered by the Sioux. After he was discharged, his appointement as captain and chevalier of the Saint-Louis Cross, and his restoration has commander to the "Western Sea" post, show recognition for his outstandingly gifted qualities. Historians consider him equal to : Champlain, Lewis and Clark
La prise d'assaut du bastion militaire américain par les femmes et le déploiement du Women's Army Corps en Europe pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale : une victoire en demi-teinte by Caroline Lorentz( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 1 library worldwide
Les Américaines ont, bien avant le second conflit mondial, participé à l'effort de guerre - choix souvent désapprouvé dans un pays peu favorable à l'émancipation féminine. Le Women's Army Corps, créé en 1942, relança la polémique d'une femme patriote, bon soldat et pourtant dévouée à son foyer. Envoyées en Europe, les Waacs, toutes races confondues, firent l'expérience des bombardements et de la peur, constatèrent la souffrance de certains GIs confrontés à la violence, mais découvrirent également une certaine forme de tolérance sexuelle et raciale. Leur combat fut difficile, la lutte se poursuivant bien après la démobilisation
Etats-Unis - Union Européenne : politiques environnementales comparées de la fin de la Seconde guerre mondiale à nos jours by Kathia Devouge( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 1 library worldwide
This thesis deals with a comparison between the environmental policies of two supranational entities: the United States and the European Union. More precisely, while their convergences and divergences are examined, attempts of explanations are provided. The study is essentially based on scientific, sociologic and legal arguments which are set in a cultural and historical context allowing a highlight of their strategic scope. Different aspects are discussed. The protection of the atmosphere and the related bills are analyzed to scrutinize the spirit of the laws and the national progression of ideas leading up to their enactment. The water and soil management strategies study enables to underline the great importance of the involvement of both the USA and Europe in world environmental decision-making. It also allows a questioning of their positions within a transborder context. Finally, the questions of nature and waste management are used to consider the American and European history of ideas and the imprinting of representations in the setting-up of environmental policies. The conclusions are grouped in a brief chapter which aims at both synthesizing the different elements studied and opening the debate on further evolution and even the possible rapprochement between the American and European environmental policies
