This is the unparalleled adventure proposed by the cream of French luxury and science fiction. Alain Rey, Xavier Mauméjean, Olivier Paquet, Samantha Bailly, Roque Rivas, Jean-Claude Dunyach, Anne Fakhouri, and Joëlle Wintrebert have seized the futuristic dream of luxury firms and nourished it with their imaginations. Put on their heroes' Nautys to journey through a world where the celebration of the senses and the sharing of emotions will restore your taste for things and beings. And, finally, this future may well dream happily ever after... This work is also available in French.
From 1942 to 1954, Sister Jacques-Marie, originally Monique Bourgeois, describes her encounter with Henri Matisse that lead to the creation of the Rosaire Chapel in Vence. As the last, ultimate project of the artist, it is considered to be the culmination of his entire works. Henri Matisse stated: "This work required four years of exclusive, constant effort ,and it is the fruit of my whole working life. In spite of all its imperfections, I consider it as my masterpiece." Sister Jacques-Marie recounts the friendship and the complicity she shared with the painter throughout the years, resulting in the chef d'oeuvre, the Rosaire Chapel in Vence.
Translater Sister Jacques-Marie's text: Barbara Freed.
Genuinely new story of the Second World War - the full account of England's last war against France in 1940-42.
Most people think that England's last war with France involved point-blank broadsides from sailing ships and breastplated Napoleonic cavalry charging red-coated British infantry. But there was a much more recent conflict than this. Under the terms of its armistice with Nazi Germany, the unoccupied part of France and its substantial colonies were ruled from the spa town of Vichy by the government of Marshal Philip Petain. Between July 1940 and November 1942, while Britain was at war with Germany, Italy and ultimately Japan, it also fought land, sea and air battles with the considerable forces at the disposal of Petain's Vichy French.
When the Royal Navy sank the French Fleet at Mers El-Kebir almost 1,300 French sailors died in what was the twentieth century's most one-sided sea battle. British casualties were nil. It is a wound that has still not healed, for undoubtedly these events are better remembered in France than in Britain. An embarrassment at the time, France's maritime massacre and the bitter, hard-fought campaigns that followed rarely make more than footnotes in accounts of Allied operations against Axis forces. Until now.

What does the notion of authenticity mean in different countries? What role can be assigned to old military fortresses? Should monuments be restored? If so, what techniques and what materials should be used? Between interpreting, reinventing, freezing at a moment in time, identically rebuilding, etc., points of view and biases vary depending on national cultures, sensitivities and periods.
Through examples from around the world, from Lebanon to Algeria, by way of Greece, Japan and Korea, this conference examines this complex notion of authenticity, as applied to architectural heritage, fortifications and the study of castles.
Organised as part of the application by 'the City of Carcassone and its sentinel mountain castles' to be added to the UNESCO world heritage list, the event presents conservation models that have been used on other cultural assets. It offers a comparative study of the choices and practices brought into effect on exceptional heritage sites, in particular through the prism of international rules on authenticity.

What is heritage ? This is the most fundamental but difficult question to be answered in heritage studies. It has been addressed many times, but singular definitions always seem to come up short. This book contributes to understandings of heritage as a multifarious construct. It sees it not as something defined by material objects, but as a cultural, economic, and political resource, a discursive practice, and as a process or performative act that engages with the past, present, and future. Notions of Heritage explores the challenges and consequences that result from overlapping, outdated understandings of heritage, as well as new notions of heritage altogether, whether in form or in practice, paving the way forward in the field of critical heritage studies.
Qu'est-ce que le patrimoine ? C'est une question à la fois fondamentale et complexe à laquelle cherchent à répondre les études sur le patrimoine. Celle-ci a été maintes fois abordée, mais les définitions précises semblent toujours manquer. Cet ouvrage contribue à la compréhension du patrimoine comme construction multiforme. Il ne le considère pas en tant qu'objets matériels, mais comme une ressource culturelle, économique et politique, une pratique discursive, et en tant que processus ou acte performatif qui s'engage avec le passé, le présent et le futur. Notions de patrimoine explore les défis et les conséquences qui résultent des conceptions obsolètes et chevauchantes du patrimoine ainsi que les nouvelles notions du patrimoine, que ce soit dans la forme ou dans la pratique, qui ouvrent la voie aux études critiques sur le sujet.
