  • La gloire de l’industrie, XVIIe–XIXe siècle: Faire de l’histoire avec Gérard Gayot [Splendors of Industry, Seventeenth to Nineteenth Centuries: A Tribute to Gérard Gayot]. Edited by Maitte Corine, Minard Philippe, and de Oliveira Matthieu. Rennes: Pr
    Business History Review, 2013
    Co-Authors: Claire Lemercier

    Abstract:

    Gerard Gayot (1941–2009) was a French historian who embodied the best of the tradition of the Annales School, while also giving it a new turn. Along with his colleague Jean-Pierre Hirsch, also active in the
    University of Lille, he put enormous energy and enthusiasm into bridging many gaps—between early modern and modern history, as his questions on industrialization and the birth of capitalism spanned the whole 1700–1900 period; between the history of fi rms, of workers, of capitalists, and that of social movements, technologies and gestures, and cultural attitudes; and between French, Belgian, German, Italian, and other literatures, especially as the editor, with Giovanni Luigi Fontana, of the monumental volume Wool: Products and Markets (13th–20th Century) (2004). His premature death hit the discipline hard. Hence, this edited volume gathers papers by his former doctoral students and other colleagues for whom he opened new avenues of research (…).

  • The time of space and the space of time: the future of social science
    Political Geography, 1998
    Co-Authors: Immanuel Wallerstein

    Abstract:

    Abstract Time and space are irremediably locked together and constitute a single dimension, TimeSpace. Social science, as invented between 1850 and 1914, has involved limited interpretations of TimeSpace emphasizing either eternal TimeSpaces (economics, sociology, political science) or episodic geopolitical TimeSpaces (history, anthropology, Oriental studies). The difficulty for establishing a successful discipline of geography was that it straddled these two kinds of TimeSpace. Social science neglected three other types of TimeSpace that were potentially subversive. The Annales School of history emphasized cyclic-ideological TimeSpace and structural TimeSpace which transcend the old choice between the idiographic and nomothetic through the study of historical systems. Historical systems are defined by structural TimeSpace and function through cyclico-ideological TimeSpace. Between structural TimeSpaces there is transformational TimeSpace and our historical social system is reaching such a moment of bifurcation. Intellectually, social science needs refashioning into a tool of this transformation and, politically, we have to dare to develop a sober utopia and to seek to construct it.

  • The Poisoned Madeleine: The Autobiographical Turn in Historical Writing
    Journal of Contemporary History, 2011
    Co-Authors: Richard Vinen

    Abstract:

    This article examines the recent fashion for autobiographical writing among historians. It argues that this fashion goes with a rehabilitation of contemporary history, which was sometimes regarded with disdain during the time in the mid-1960s when approaches associated with the Annales School seemed most influential. Autobiographies by historians have attracted particular attention in France and all such works are sometimes labelled with the term first coined by Pierre Nora: ego-histoire. However, this article argues that the historians brought together by Nora (all French, mostly born between 1917 and 1930 and heavily influenced by the political upheavals of the period 1940 to 1962) were rather different from those historians (mostly from a younger generation) who have been drawn to autobiographical writing in the Anglo-American world. It is finally suggested that there is now something of a reaction against autobiographical writing by a younger generation of historians who argue that, even when writing …
