In France during the 1960s and 1970s, popular music became a key component of socio-cultural modernisation as the music/record industry became increasingly important in both economic and cultural terms in response to demographic changes and the rise of the modern media. As France began questioning traditional ways of understanding politics and culture before and after May 1968, music as popular culture became an integral part of burgeoning media activity. Press, radio and television developed free from de Gaulle's state domination of information, and political activism shifted its concerns to the use of regional languages and regional cultures, including the safeguard of traditional popular music against the centralising tendencies of the Republican state. The cultural and political significance of French music was again revealed in the 1990s, as French-language music became a highly visible example of France's quest to maintain her cultural 'exceptionalism' in the face of the perceived globalising hegemony of English and US business and cultural imperialism. Laws were passed instituting minimum quotas of French-language music. The 1980s and 1990s witnessed developing issues raised by new technologies, as compact discs, the minitel telematics system, the internet and other innovations in radio and television broadcasting posed new challenges to musicians and the music industry. These trends and developments are the subject of this volume of essays by leading scholars across a range of disciplines including French studies, musicology, cultural and media studies and film studies. It constitutes the first attempt to provide a complete and up-to-date overview of the place of popular music in modern France and the reception of French popular music abroad.

Longtemps rangés parmi les "publics à problèmes", les élèves allophones (ex-primo-arrivants) voient peu à peu reconnue leur spécificité, notamment depuis la dernière loi d'orientation de juillet 2013. Comment l'Education nationale a-t-elle jusque-là géré ce dossier, complexe à bien des égards? Comment l'inclusion scolaire changera-t-elle les choses en profondeur, pour l'ensemble des acteurs? Quels problèmes politiques, organisationnels, pédagogiques se posent ainsi au système éducatif? Ce livre se propose d'analyser la problématique dans toute son étendue et dans toute sa complexité, en plaçant la question du droit des élèves à la réussite au centre de la réflexion. On veut aussi montrer de la sorte que ce dossier constitue une occasion unique pour l'école d'avancer sur des questions aussi fondamentales que l'accompagnement des élèves, la différenciation pédagogique, la gestion renouvelée des apprentissages, notamment en ce qui concerne le français, langue de scolarisation.

Using Classical violin music as her principal laboratory, the author examines how a performance incorporates distinctive features not only of the work but of the performer as well--and how the listener goes about interpreting not only the composer's work and the performer's rendering of the work, but the performer's and listener's identities as well. A richly interdisciplinary approach to a very common, yet persistently mysterious, part of our lives.

An organisation's fate hinges on its CEO—right? Not according to the authors of Senior Leadership Teams. They argue that in today's world of neck-snapping change, demands on leaders in top roles are rapidly outdistancing the capabilities of any one person - no matter how talented. Result? Chief executives are turning to their enterprise's senior leaders for help. Yet many CEOs stumble when creatinga leadership team. One major challenge is that senior executives often focus more on their individual roles than on the top team's shared work. Without the CEO's careful attention to setting the team up correctly, these high-powered managers often have difficulty pulling together to move their organisation forward. Sometimes they don't even agree about what constitutes the right path forward.The authors explain how to determine whether your organisation needs a senior leadership team. Then, drawing on their study of 100+ top teams from around the world, they explain how to create a clear and compelling purpose for your team, get the right people on it, provide structure and support, and sharpen team members' competencies - and your own. Timely and practical, this book enables you to create and sustain a leadership team whose members learn from one another while collaborating to pursue your company's objectives.
