La machine diplomatique française en Haïti (1945-1958)

WEIBERT, Arthus Weibert, La machine diplomatique française en Haïti  (1945-1958), Paris, L’Harmattan, février 2012, pages n.c.


Suite à la coupure de 1941-1945, c’est une véritable machine diplomatique française qui s’installe et fonctionne en Haïti. L’action de la France dans ce pays ne couvre pas seulement la diplomatie proprement dite et n’est pas que le résultat des efforts de la représentation française en Haïti. L’élite haïtienne et le clergé catholique sont beaucoup plus actifs et efficaces que les diplomates.  Voici examiné le type d’influence que la France cherche à maintenir en Haïti de 1945 à 1958.

Cuba et l’URSS

Latrèche, Leila, Cuba et L’URSS.  30 ans d’une relation improbable, Paris, L’Harmattan, juillet 2011, 302 p.

 

Présentation :

«Rien ne prédisposait l’URSS et Cuba à nouer une alliance étroite. On a souvent désigné Cuba comme un satellite de l’Union soviétique. Les relations entre les deux pays sont plus complexes que ce schéma de vassalisation : ils ont su concilier leurs intérêts respectifs. Cette relation unique n’a toutefois pas survécu au contexte qui avait favorisé sa naissance.»

The Cold War in Latin America: An ‘Exceptional’ Narrative?

« The Cold War in Latin America: An ‘Exceptional’ Narrative? »

6-9 septembre 2011, Cadix, Espagne

Date limite de réponse : 28 février 2011

As organizers of the session « The Cold War in Latin America: An ‘Exceptional’ Narrative? », which will take place at the XVI Congress of AHILA to be held in Cadiz, Spain, on 6-9 September, 2011, we are issuing a call for papers that explore this topic from various points of view.

Firstly, we are looking for historiographical analyses that deal with the idea of how a regional narrative of the Cold War might relate to the emerging international history of a global Cold War. These analyses will address questions such as: Should the Cold War have historiographical autonomy within Latin American historical narratives? Did the Cold War open a new era in Latin American history or was it simply a continuation of an old US imperial project under a different light? What similarities and differences were there between the Latin American process and processes that other areas of the ‘periphery’ lived through? To what extent did the Cold War create a ‘global South’ and what part did Latin America play in this story?

Secondly, we are looking for papers that focus in on detailed case-studies, either through examinations of individual countries over a given time period or studies of how different Latin American countries related to each other, that will allow us to understand the Cold War period in the region in more depth.  In particular, we are looking for papers that will help us explore how Latin American countries adjusted to the Cold War and the extent to which they did so to advance domestic objectives or alter the inter-American balance of power in the region to their advantage.

The deadline for the submission of proposals is 28 February 2011. The language of the session will be Spanish, but we will also consider proposals in either Portuguese or English. Please note that we do not have funding for participants, so those interested in participating should have their own funding to attend the conference.

We are looking forward to an outstanding session, that incorporates papers as well as discussants, and our aim will be to publish the best papers in an edited volume after the conference takes place.

Those interested in participating, please send proposals of no more than 500 words to: Tanya Harmer (ideas.latinamerica@lse.ac.uk) and José Antonio Sánchez Román (sanchezroman@ccinf.ucm.es).

Postcolonial Representations of the Iron Curtain

« The Global Cold War: Postcolonial Representations of the Iron Curtain »

31 mars-1er avril 2011, Vancouver

Date limite : 12 novembre 2010

The past five years have seen the publication of scholarship in the humanities and the social sciences that begins to adumbrate a new, more complex view of the Cold War. Historians and political scientists (Odd Arne Westad, Piero Gleijeses, Gary Baines, Pater Vale) are starting to go beyond the traditional view of a bipolar conflict in which only the heavyweights count (the USA and the USSR). Instead, the image of a global Cold War is emerging. In this conflict postcolonial nations played an essential role and their literatures and cultures recorded the ideological divisions created by the Iron Curtain.

This panel invites papers on postcolonial literary and film representations of the Cold War. Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

  • The Bandung conference and the Non-Aligned nations
  • Tricontinental alliances
  • Diasporas from the postcolonies to the Eastern Bloc and the Western metropolitan centers
  • Communism in India
  • Cuba and the idea of revolution
  • The war in Angola reflected in Southern African literatures
  • From Indochina to the Vietnam War

Papers have to be submitted through the ACLA website (http://www.acla.org/acla2011/?page_id=33) but e-mail confirmations (monica.popescu@mcgill.ca) are encouraged.

Seminar at the American Comparative Literature Association conference, March 31-April 1, 2011, Vancouver. Organizer: Monica Popescu, McGill University.
