The Pariahs of Yesterday began as a quite di erent enterprise, with support for summer research from the University of Michigan, Flint, and the study expanded during a semester s research leave from Michigan State University granted by Dean John Eadie.
Generous support from the College of Arts and Letters subsequently enabled stints of summer research, and then the Department of History, chaired by Walter Hawthorne, underwrote publication costs. Nathan Scherbarth and John Hennessey spent hours confirming marriage records, corroborating research, and checking details of the manuscript.
This study also has an important Dutch component, because the primary occasion for uninterrupted writing came from a fellowship at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study under the leadership of Rector Wim Blockmans. Colleagues at nias like Jacqueline Bel provided a rich intellectual atmosphere and friendly support; the entire sta especially the librarian Dindy van Maanen created a wonderful workplace.
The hospitality of Parisian friends made research in France a pleasure and certainly eased the pangs of being away from home.
I am grateful to Pierre Guillard, who was so generous with his time and knowledge of the Breton community in Paris. The manuscript benefited enormously from the anonymous readers for the press, who proffered insightful suggestions that enabled me to improve this work; my editor, Fred Kameny, shook the most irritating quirks from my prose.
Closer to home, Rachel Fuchs and Nora Faires each had the patience to read the manuscript in its entirety and to o er invaluable suggestions.
Even closer, Lewis Siegelbaum provided alternative sources of inspiration. The errors and omissions that remain here are entirely my own. This book is dedicated to my daughter Sarah, who was present at the beginning of this work but has since moved on to manage her own life and work with grace, humor, and acuity.
This disparaging sobriquet, most closely associated with the Paris historian Louis Chevalier, spread as far as the Bretons home, the western peninsula of Brittany. Often newcomers suffer under pariah status, assigned not by their family or their own compatriots but by members of their host culture, as do some of today s Latin Americans in the United States, North and West Africans in France, and Moroccans in the Netherlands.
The status can be temporary outcast newcomers can gain a foothold, blend with the native-born, and form vital communities of their own. It is the historians task to investigate and understand the evolution of life at the newcomer s destination.
Indeed, history carries the burden of explanation because historical change is at the heart of both migration and perceptions of outsiders.
This book analyzes the history of Bretons in Paris during the Third Republic. It will be a vehicle for investigating internal migration, the integration of national minorities, and the state s inclusionary and exclusionary policies, setting migrations to the national capital in a long-term and global context.
I seek to connect internal migration with its implications for national integration and identity in France. Since this path-breaking observation, many scholars have addressed the exclusive nature of the citizenship philosophy forged in the Revolution 15 2 [ Introducing the Pariahs of Yesterday and after.
They have established that colonial status, race, and gender set many people apart despite longstanding claims that French citizenship, and therefore identity, are universal and nonexclusive.
The legacy of Republican citizenship from the revolutionary era is an inclusive yet gendered and racialized principle that constituted the French identity as a unitary one. Nonetheless, internal migration has not yet received the kind of renewed examination that it deserves as part of this larger story of French nation building; I will address this deficiency with a focus on the Breton experience in Paris.
Attention to French identity and citizenship has increased along with the study of immigrants in France, in response to a lack of immigration histories and the realities of renewed immigration after the Second World War.
Histoire de l immigration en France au xx e siecle followed in the s.
In combination with studies of contemporary immigrants, these historical studies provide a diversity and depth to the history of France and its peoples. The attention to foreign immigration has changed the discourse about the French nation a most important consequence. As a result, all of these notions have shaken up the French model of integration and challenged the traditional vision of France.
The working assumption of national histories that has operated to the detriment of understanding the rich variety of peoples within each nation is on the wane, in favor of what Dirk Hoerder, Christiane Harzig, and Adrian Schubert call the historical practice of diversity.
Yet as a consequence of the emerging and very fine scholarship on international immigration, we may know more about twentieth-century Italians or Poles in the capital city than about French provincials, as the historian of Paris Alain Faure has observed. Provincials made the nation, however.
Over years ago, inErnest Renan gave the significant and well-known address at the Sorbonne, What Is a Nation? While calling the nation a soul, Renan also stated clearly that the nation is a construction rather than an organic whole. He understood that the French nation had been formed from distinct ethnic and linguistic groups, but also believed that the melting pot had done its work by the s: Rather he is what has emerged out of the cauldron in which, presided over by the King of France, the most diverse elements have together been simmering.
Eugen Weber agreed that the French comprised many nations, and he made the case in Peasants into Frenchmen, as Noiriel later did, that the state was the primary instrument of inclusion not the King of France, as Renan wrote, but the Third Republic.
While Weber recognized longstanding traditions of temporary migration that brought peasants to new fields and cities, his emphasis was on the state: The Republic built the roads, laid out the railroads, created the primary school system, forced 17 4 [ Introducing the Pariahs of Yesterday children to attend and to speak French while they did and then sent young men away from home if they were conscripted into the army.
Although Weber did not use the analogy of the melting pot, he wrote as if the state had the pot over a hot fire while the Third Republic was hard at work making Frenchmen out of peasants.
In response to this somewhat dichotomous view of peasants and the French, scholars have come forward to present a more nuanced picture of relations between the Third Republic and the people.Twenty and Ten by Bishop, Claire Huchet Book condition: Used - Good Book Description Peter Smith Pub Inc.
