« Faire de l’histoire est-il anachronique ? À propos d’un travail sur le 17 juillet 1791 réalisé avec Dominique Cabrera. »

Les disciplines convoquées seront l’histoire, le cinéma, l’anthropologie et les sciences politiques. Nous conseillons aux doctorants de lire l’article de Mme Wahnich « Trésor perdu et expérience cinématographique de l’adresse au tiers. Pourquoi faire un film sur le 17 juillet 1791 ? Le beau dimanche de Dominique Cabrera, 2007. » En ligne, revue Érudit.

Abstract.
If the French Revolution has become a forgotten treasure, the cinematographic experience offers new ways of rediscovering it and raises new questions for historians. This paper focuses on Dominique Cabrera’s film Le Beau Dimanche (2007) to point to a new figure—the ghost, the “third” (le tiers)—that allows us to reconsider historical figurations of what remained taboo and, specifically, the repressive violence of popular demands for justice.
