Texte intégral

1 Most of the essays included in this book have their origins in the international conference held on June 21-23, 2007, organized by the Milan-Montpellier Group for the Study of United States History and Culture (formerly the Milan Group for the Study of Early United States History, created in 1979 by Loretta Mannucci, Herbert Gutman and others) in conjunction with the Centre de recherches et d’études nord-américaines (CRENA). This conference was held under the auspices of the Équipe d’accueil 741 of the Département d’études anglophones of the Université Paul-Valéry (Montpellier 3). Financial and logistical assistance was provided by the Conseil Scientifique of the Université Paul-Valéry, the Pôle universitaire européen, the Mairie de Montpellier, and the Région de Languedoc-Roussillon. In addition to contributors and participants who performed extraordinary roles (especially Matteo Ceschi), the editors thank all who contributed to this project, and most notably Gianmaria Bergamaschini, Elodie Chazalon, Jack Goodfellow, Nora Halfaoui, Maylis Konnecke, Zahra Oughebbi and Isabelle Ronzetti for their many-dimensioned contributions before and during the conference. Other distinguished participants included Susan Castillo, David Grimsted, Rhys Isaac, Marco Sioli and Sylvia Ullmo. We also express our appreciation for the help of the editorial services of the Presses universitaires de la Méditerrannée (PULM).
