Description: Older research on the premodern world limited its focus on the Church, the court, and, more recently, on urban space. The present volume invites readers to consider the meaning of rural space, both in light of ecocritical readings and social-historical approaches. While previous scholars examined the figure of the peasant in the premodern world, the current volume combines a large number of specialized studies that investigate how the natural environment and the appearance of members of the rural population interacted with the world of the court and of the city. The experience in rural space was important already for writers and artists in the premodern era, as the large variety of scholarly approaches indicates. The present volume signals how much the surprisingly close interaction between members of the aristocratic and of the peasant class determined many literary and art-historical works. In a surprisingly large number of cases we can even discover elements of utopia hidden in rural space. We also observe how much the rural world was a significant element already in early-medieval mentality. Moreover, as many authors point out, the impact of natural forces on premodern society was tremendous, if not catastrophic.

Description: Collection dirigée par Michel Zink La collection Lettres gothiques se propose d’ouvrir au public le plus large un accès à la fois direct, aisé et sûr, à la littérature du Moyen Age : un accès direct en mettant sous les yeux du lecteur le texte original ; un accès aisé grâce à la traduction en français moderne proposée en regard, à l’introduction et à des notes nombreuses ; un accès sûr grâce au soin dont font l’objet la présentation du texte et son commentaire. La collection Lettres gothiques offre ainsi un panorama représentatif de l’ensemble de la littérature médiévale. FABLIAUX EROTIQUESLes récits réunis dans ce volume sont amusants et alertes. Ils sont aussi d’une verdeur, voire d’une obscénité capables de surprendre même une époque aussi peu bégueule que la nôtre. Offrir au lecteur un choix de ces fabliaux érotiques ne trahit pourtant aucune complaisance racoleuse. Ces contes à rire en vers, écrits entre la fin du xiie et le début du xive siècle, sont d’un intérêt considérable pour l’histoire de la littérature comme pour celle des fantasmes et de l’imaginaire. Leurs auteurs, qui sortent peu à peu de l’anonymat, mettent un talent et une culture littéraires souvent remarquables au service de leur inspiration grivoise. C’est ainsi qu’ils multiplient avec habileté et malice les allusions aux grands auteurs de leur temps, et même les citations textuelles, détournées et remployées dans les contextes les plus scabreux. La présente édition ne se contente pas de rendre ces textes aisément accessibles. Elle fait considérablement progresser la connaissance des fabliaux et de leurs auteurs, l’établissement des textes et leur interprétation.

Description: "Common women" in medieval England were prostitutes, whose distinguishing feature was not that they took money for sex but that they belonged to all men in common. Common Women: Prostitution and Sexuality in Medieval England tells the stories of these women's lives: their entrance into the trade because of poor job and marriage prospects or because of seduction or rape; their experiences as streetwalkers, brothel workers or the medieval equivalent of call girls; their customers, from poor apprentices to priests to wealthy foreign merchants; and their relations with those among whom they lived. Common Women crosses the boundary from social to cultural history by asking not only about the experiences of prostitutes but also about the meaning of prostitution in medieval culture. The teachings of the church attributed both lust and greed, in generous measure, to women as a group. Stories of repentant whores were popular among medieval preachers and writers because prostitutes were the epitome of feminine sin. Through a sensitive use of a wide variety of imaginative and didactic texts, Ruth Karras shows that while prostitutes as individuals were marginalized within medieval culture, prostitution as an institution was central to the medieval understanding of what it meant to be a woman. This important work will be of interest to scholars and students of history, women's studies, and the history of sexuality.

Description: A collection of tales from the Middle Ages that reveal voyages to Heaven and Hell, the realm of the Faery, mystical lands, and encounters with mythic beasts • Shares travelers’ accounts of voyages into the afterlife, alarming creatures of unparalleled strangeness, encounters with doppelgangers and angels, chivalric romantic misadventures, and legends of heroes • Explains how travelers’ tales from the Middle Ages drew on geographies, encyclopedias, travel accounts, bestiaries, and herbals for material to capture the imagination of their audiences • Includes rare illustrations from incunabula and medieval manuscripts Heading off to discover unknown lands was always a risky undertaking during the Middle Ages due to the countless dangers lying in wait for the traveler--if we can believe what the written accounts tell us. In the medieval age of intercontinental exploration, tales of sea monsters, strange hybrid beasts, trickster faeries, accidental trips to the afterlife, and peoples as fantastic and dangerous as the lands they inhabited abounded. In this curated collection of medieval travelers’ tales, editors Claude and Corinne Lecouteux explain how the Middle Ages were a melting pot of narrative traditions from the four corners of the then-known world. Tales from this period often drew on geographies, encyclopedias, travel accounts, bestiaries, and herbals for material to capture the imagination of their audiences, who were fascinated by the wonders being discovered by explorers of the time. Accompanied by rare illustrations from incunabula and medieval manuscripts, the stories in this collection include voyages into the afterlife, with guided tours of Hell and glimpses of Heaven, as well as journeys into other fantastic realms, such as the pagan land of the Faery. It also includes accounts from travelers such as Alexander the Great of alarming creatures of unparalleled strangeness, encounters with doppelgangers and angels, legends of heroes, and tales of chivalric romantic misadventures, with protagonists swept to exotic new places by fate or by quest. In each story, the marvelous is omnipresent, and each portrays the reactions of the protagonist when faced with the unknown. Offering an introduction to the medieval imaginings of a wondrous universe, these tales reflect the dreams and beliefs of the Middle Ages’ era of discovery and allow readers to survey mythic geography, meet people from the far ends of the earth, and experience the supernatural.

Description: Genealogies of Identity examines issues of sex and sexuality across a range of critical and cultural perspectives. The volume considers historically specific discourses of sex and sexuality, their effect within public contexts such as the church and the workplace, and the link of those discourses to understandings of individual identity, citizenship, nation, and human rights. As well, the volume analyses representations of sexuality and desire in art, literature, theatre, and theory – representations that serve both to codify and to subvert social norms and aesthetic and theoretical traditions. Finally and more broadly, the volume attests to the critical importance of inter- and multidisciplinary approaches to understanding constructions of gender, sex, and sexuality. Genealogies of Identity consists of fifteen essays, versions of which were presented at the First Global Conference on Critical Issues in Sexuality, held in Salzburg, Austria, in October 2004.

Description: Medieval French, usually analyzed as a null subject language, differs considerably from modern Romance null subject languages such as Spanish in the availability of non-expressed subject pronouns; specifically, it shows characteristics reminiscent of non-null, rather than null subject languages, such as the expression of expletive subject pronouns. The central goal of this book is to put forward an account of these differences. On the basis of the analysis of an extensive, newly established data corpus, the development of the expression of both expletive and referential subject pronouns until the 17th c. is determined. Following a thorough discussion of previous approaches, an alternative approach is presented which builds on the analysis of Medieval French as a non-null subject language. The non-expression of subject pronouns, licit in specific contexts in non-null subject languages, is shown to be restricted to configurations generally involving left-peripheral focalization. These configurations – and, concomitantly, non-expressed subject pronouns – are finally argued to be eventually lost for good in the wake of the initial observation by 17th c. writers of pertinent instructions campaigned for in highly influential works of language use.

Description: Space is a fundamental dimension of human life and is pervasive in human experience. Research on space has highlighted the possible asymmetrical nature of spatial relations. Differences in the encoding of goals and sources of motion are a case in point, and cross-linguistic coding tendencies show that path is less frequently flagged by a dedicated case than goal, source/origin, and (static) location (locative). Interestingly, such asymmetries may correlate with certain types of landmark, as in the case of toponyms or of animate entities. Even though these issues have been focused upon both in typological and psycholinguistic research, they remain largely open. The papers in this collection aim to show that a diachronic approach may shed light on the way in which asymmetries in the space domain come about over time, thus contributing to the clarification of synchronically puzzling facts.

Description: Coïncidant avec le vingt-cinquième anniversaire de la Société Charlevoix, la fournée 2018 de ce douzième cahier réunit six études. Simon Laflamme publie l’affidavit qui a été utilisé par le Commissariat aux langues officielles pour appuyer la cause qu’il défendait contre la Société Radio-Canada. À la suite des compressions budgétaires de 2009 dont elle avait été victime, la société d’État réduisait fortement sa programmation à la station de radio Cbef de Windsor. Yves Frenette propose un regard comparatif de l’historiographie dans trois aires de la francophonie canadienne entre 1970 et 2000. Au cours de cette période de transition, les identités traditionnelles acadienne et canadienne-française déclinent progressivement au profit de nouvelles identités francophones provincialisées. Julie Boissonneault se penche sur la perception qu’on a de la langue des Franco-Ontariens. La langue française parlée en Ontario fait souvent l’objet d’un discours dépréciatif qui établit la compétence des Franco-Ontariens à l’aune de leurs manquements au français de référence. Or, ce discours, qui ne tient pas compte de l’enjeu de la variation interne de toute langue et des processus naturels d’évolution des parlers, nourrit des représentations à l’égard du parler qui sont souvent partielles ou fausses et qui, en retour, peuvent mener à un sentiment d’incompétence chez le locuteur franco-ontarien. Ali Reguigui inscrit son étude dans le cadre de la phonétique articulatoire et de la sociophonétique, fondée sur les données d’un questionnaire sociolinguistique recueillies auprès de sujets franco-ontariens. Il examine le cas de la consonne roulée alvéolaire voisée /r/ du latin, qui a persévéré en ancien français et moyen français jusqu’au xviie siècle dans les centres urbains, et jusqu’au XVIIIe siècle en général pour se faire remplacer par la consonne roulée uvulaire voisée, communément qualifiée de grasseyée et marquée comme variante de prestige Marcel Bénéteau fait le bilan de la chanson traditionnelle française en Ontario et trace son évolution dans le temps et l’espace. L’auteur décrit le travail qu’il a entrepris pour déterminer en premier lieu en quoi consiste le répertoire de l’Ontario français ; à cette fin, il précise quelles sont ses balises historiques et géographiques (où et quand le répertoire s’est-il implanté sur le territoire ?) et ce qu’il comprend au juste (combien de chansons ? quelles chansons ? quelles catégories de chansons ?). Jean-Pierre Pichette verse un nouveau chapitre au dossier de la transposition des récits oraux dans des oeuvres littéraires. À l’analyse des écrits destinés à la jeunesse de l’écrivaine Marie-Rose Turcot (Cahiers Charlevoix 3) et de l’ethnologue Marius Barbeau (Cahiers Charlevoix 4), il ajoute l’examen des « petits contes drolatiques » qu’un autre écrivain d’Ottawa, Régis Roy (1864-1944), a publiés entre 1906 et 1928. Michel Bock a compilé dans la « Chronique » les faits saillants survenus depuis la parution du dernier volume et les nouvelles des membres reliées à leurs activités professionnelles. Nous y joignons le compte rendu des activités récentes de la Société des Dix que son secrétaire, Fernand Harvey, a préparé à notre intention. Ce livre est publié en français.

Description: Le rire est une vertu que Dieu a donnée aux hommes pour les consoler d'être intelligents, disait Marcel Pagnol. Une vertu qui a plus de deux mille ans, comme en témoignent les recueils d'histoires drôles dont Grecs et Romains étaient déjà friands. Mais peut-on rire de tout ? Oui, affirme Démocrite, dont le rire désabusé a des accents étonnement modernes. Oui, dit aussi Cicéron qui répertorie mille façons de faire rire. Non, proclament en revanche les pères de l'Eglise, car le rire est un phénomène diabolique, une insulte à la création divine, une manifestation d'orgueil. Leurs arguments ne sont cependant guère entendus au Moyen Age :.les rois s'entourent de fous, les hommes jouent à se moquer les uns des autres lors des charivaris, et l'humour, qui n'est encore que parodie, se glisse même dans les sermons des prédicateurs. Avec Rabelais apparaît une autre façon de rire, un rire ambigu qui ébranle toutes les certitudes et se prolonge au-delà de la Renaissance, tour à tour picaresque, grotesque, burlesque. La monarchie absolue veut faire rentrer les rieurs dans le rang. Mais peut-on domestiquer le rire ? Déguisé en humour acide, il ronge peu à peu les fondements du pouvoir et de la société. C'est tout naturellement qu'au XIXo siècle il trouve son terrain de prédilection dans la satire politique, tandis que les philosophes dissèquent ses vertus, parfois pour les déplorer, et que Baudelaire recherche le " comique absolu ". L'ironie devient un mode de relation entre l'homme et le monde. Elle protège contre l'angoisse et l'exprime en même temps. " Je ris avec le vieux machiniste Destin ", écrit Victor Hugo qui fixe en des formules immortelles l'ambiguïté du rire. Avec les Zutistes, Fumistes et autres J'menfoutistes, le XIXo siècle s'achève sur une apothéose du rire insensé. Le monde désormais va tout tourner en dérision, ses dieux comme ses démons. Georges Minois, professeur d'histoire et historien des mentalités religieuses, est l'auteur de nombreuses synthèses sur le culture occidentale. Il est en particulier l'auteur de "l'Histoire de l'athéisme"

Description: In The Lily and the Thistle, William Calin argues for a reconsideration of the French impact on medieval and renaissance Scottish literature. Calin proposes that much of traditional, medieval, and early modern Scottish culture, thought to be native to Scotland or primarily from England, is in fact strikingly international and European. By situating Scottish works in a broad intertextual context, Calin reveals which French genres and modes were most popular in Scotland and why. The Lily and the Thistle provides appraisals of medieval narrative texts in the high courtly mode (equivalent to the French “dits amoureux”); comic, didactic, and satirical texts; and Scots romance. Special attention is accorded to texts composed originally in French such as the Arthurian “Roman de Fergus,” as well as to the lyrics of Mary Queen of Scots and little known writers from the French and Scottish canons. By considering both medieval and renaissance works, Calin is able to observe shifts in taste and French influence over the centuries.

Description: Through a sensitive use of a wide variety of imaginative and didactic texts, Ruth Karras shows that while prostitutes as individuals were marginalized within medieval culture, prostitution as an institution was central to the medieval understanding of what it meant to be a woman. This important work will be of interest to scholars and students of history, women's studies, and the history of sexuality.
