Jour 7

O tempora O mores ! Jour 7 du confinement

J’espère que chacun e est en sécurité et en bonne santé, et vos familles aussi. Chez moi, tous les jours à 20h nous allons à la fenêtre applaudir les soignants , infirmiers, médecins etc. je sais que  parmi nos étudiant e s, il y a un certain nombre qui travaillent dans un supermarché. Le travail est plus intense et plus inquiétant que d’habitude. Alors un très grand remerciement à ces travailleurs indispensables qui nous permettent de manger presque normalement en ces temps très difficiles !

report de certains concours

Les nouvelles consignes gouvernementales concernant l'expansion du coronavirus obligent à reporter à une date ultérieure les épreuves écrites et orales des concours de recrutement  du ministère de l'Education nationale, externes et internes publics et privés (y compris les examens professionnels).
Les concours - pour l'instant (au 15/03/2020) - reportés sont ceux prévus dans la semaine du 16 mars. Les candidats concernés sont prévenus par email.

M1 LEA Devoir maison

Nous sommes tous obligé e s de réorganiser notre vie, de penser à nos parents plus âgés  etc, dans cette période inédite. Alors si vous avez besoin d'encore quelques jours pour rendre votre devoir maison, il n'y a pas de souci.

Etudiant e s à Rouen en capes interne et en agrégation

Je suis convaincu que la décision de fermer les écoles et les universités etc va sauver des milliers de vie, même si elle complique considérablement notre vie tout de suite, notamment pour ceux et celles qui ont des enfants en bas âge. De plus, si vous êtes en poste au collège et au lycée vous devez inventer la continuité pédagogique numérique, généralement sans les ressources ni la formation nécessaires. Cela, rajouté à l'angoisse généralisée, rend la préparation du concours plus difficile.

De mon côté, je suis disponible par skype sur rendez-vous pour des examens blancs - en commentaire (Home Rule ou Captain Cook) ou en compréhension (capes interne ou agreg interne). N'hésitez pas de toute façon à m'envoyer un mail pour dire où vous en êtes (john point mullen at univ-rouen.fr).

Bon courage pour la réorganisation de votre vie quotidienne. Pensez aux personnes âgées qui habitent dans votre immeuble, et suivez les consignes d'hygeine et de distance sociale.

Agrégation Home Rule classes

I made the mistake I tell everyone not to make: I did not look at the latest version of the Emploi du temps for next week. Next Wednesday you have Mme Deshayes at 8.30 in the morning. Later on, I do comprehension and then at 3pm to 5pm Home Rule, in A506.

Unless the class is moved online: if this happens I will give the information here on this blog.

Captain Cook agrégation anglais 2020 option civilisation post 46: the North West Passage

On his third expedition, Cook was searching for the North West Passage, and the economic importance of this dream requires studying. But the passage also caught people's imaginations much later, as this song shows:

Une fac pour tout le monde

Certain e s d'entre vous auront entendu parler de cette histoire, qui a été source d'énormément de détresse pour des étudiantes et des enseignantes, dont des amies à moi .

https://actu.fr/normandie/mont-saint-aignan_76451/photomontages-cyberharcelement-enseignants-luniversite-rouen-deposent-plainte_31999214.html

Il nous faut une université où tout le monde se sent en sécurité, pour avoir des chances de construire les amitiés et les solidarités dont nous avons besoin et qui nous serviront toute notre vie.

C'est la raison pour laquelle il faut espérer que les auteurs de ces agissements soient exclus de l'université, au minimum.

Remerciements aux étudiantes et aux étudiants qui ont refusé de laisser passer cela en silence. Il faut que nous sachions tous refuser bruyamment tout cela. Les hommes ont une responsabilité particulière de contester de tels agissements, car ce genre de machistes aime supposer que les hommes en général sont d'accord avec eux. Alors que c'est dans l'égalité et le respect que nous saurons tous avancer.

(updated post) M1 methodologie de la civilisation

Et en voici un autre document sur la même question:

A part les questions pratiques que nous avons un peu regardées en cours, il y a eu des questions plus larges posées.

Qu'est ce que la civilisation britannique en tant que discipline (si c'est une discipline) et est-ce qu'elle a une méthodologie propre?

Cet entretien avec Jean-Paul Revauger explore ces questions

If you are interested later in looking again at the 1970s, here are the videos which we looked at extracts from in class.

M2 séminaire 1970s assignment

Social and cultural changes in the UK in the 1970s.

I hope you found the seminar interesting. You still have the assignment to complete. Here are the details. Notice that I have to approve your subject - send me an email to check (I usually approve, but I sometimes ask for a more precise subject). john dot mullen at univ hyphen rouen dot fr

Evaluation of this module is by research paper (« mini-dossier »)
The research paper will be 2500 - 5000 words in length, in addition to the bibliography and appendices.
The subject must be approved by your teacher in advance.
It must be based on archival research, online or otherwise.
An essential resource is http://scholar.google.fr/schhp?hl=en which allows you to search university articles, some of which are available free online.
Don’t forget the University Library database which you can access through your University Virtual Deskstop (ENT).
This also includes many articles you can download even when you are at home.
- Handwritten work is not allowed. The research paper must be sent by email in RTF format, and must use correctly the normal rules of layout for university work (footnotes, italics etc).  My email adress is prenom.nom @univ-rouen.fr (John Mullen).
There will be no spelling or typing mistakes, as students will use automatic spellcheck programmes.
Extreme care must be used to avoid plagiarism. If you use more than five words together from another source without saying where it comes from, this counts as copying.
The research paper may be illustrated, if the illustrations add something to the argument.
It must be handed in by the 4th of May 2020.

Captain Cook agrégation 2020 option civilisation post 43: Hawkesworth and the journals

You will have heard that a certain Mr Hawkesworth was asked by the admiralty (and very well paid) to write a book based on Cook's first journal. He mixed together his own material with Cook's journals and those of Joseph Banks. What he wrote did not Always please Cook.

Although you are unlikely to have the time to read the whole of it, an 1821 edition of Hawkesworth's book is available free online here, and this will give you a taste of how Cook was presented to his British contemporaries.

M1 LEA Multiculturalism in the UK

I got to the end of the topic of multiculturalism (although I may come back to it). You will find here the powerpoint I used in class. Most of it is illustration  - there is little text; this is deliberate. Still, it might help you revise when it is time to do so.

You will find the PowerPoint if you click here 

As you know I try to record my classes on MP3, again so as to help you at revision time, or if you are ill some time and cannot attend class. The recording does not always work, so classes may be missing sometimes. Here are the recordings of the classes on muticulturalism in the UK, including the first one, which I have already posted.

First recording

Second recording

Third recording

Fourth recording

Fifth recording

Sixth recording

In class we watched extracts from videos.  Here are the links:

This video was of a programme in which a Black British family of the 21st century "travelled back in time" to discover what life was like fifty years and more ago for Black immigrants to Britain.
Click here   You may have to move the cursor if you want the episode to play from the beginning. This is episode one of the series - others are available on YouTube.

Then we looked at a video about the Jewish community in Manchester, both religious and non-religious. You will find it here.    This is episode one of the series - others are available on YouTube.

We also looked at a short video about racial discrimination at night clubs. This short article in French will interest you https://sos-racisme.org/communique-de-presse/la-discotheque-le-memphis-poursuivie-en-justice-a-la-suite-dun-testing-de-sos-racisme/
