Summary "This volume, which gathers contributions presented at the annual conferences of l'Association pour le développement de l'histoire culturelle (ADHC), questions the subjects and boundaries of cultural history in France -- with regard to neighboring approaches such as cultural studies, media studies, and gender studies -- to elaborate a 'social history of representations.' Historians, philosophers and sociologists address a large variety of topics and methodological proposals. Definitions, objects and actors, memories and cultural transfers: this book depicts the major questions that underlie the historical debate at the beginning of the 21st century"-- Provided by publisher
