Figure de proue de l’opposition libérale sous le Premier Empire, Germaine de Staël se voit très tôt ostracisée par Napoléon, qui l’éloigne de Paris dès 1803, avant de lui donner l’ordre, en 1810, de quitter la France. La correspondance de l’écrivaine la voit d’emblée aux prises avec une difficulté nouvelle : celle de dire l’exil, ineffable par excellence. Souffrant de sa réclusion à Coppet, elle finit par déjouer la vigilance des agents du régime en 1812 pour entreprendre un périple qui la voit traverser l’Autriche, la Russie et la Suède afin de gagner l’Angleterre, terre de liberté. Libre enfin de prendre la plume, elle entame durant ce voyage un manuscrit, lieu d’une parole singulière sur l’exil, tant s’y noue un lien inédit entre le sort du collectif, opprimé par le joug impérial, et la singularité d’une destinée – celle d’une proscrite qui devait faire de son exil une opportunité sans pareille pour élargir son propos et son rayonnement aux dimensions de l’Europe.

Dans son "Histoire de la littérature française" (1936), Albert Thibaudet évoque Germaine de Staël comme « le Napoléon de la vie des salons ». Forte de son ascendant dans les salons, dont le sien fait figure d’épicentre de la vie intellectuelle, l’écrivaine devient bientôt le centre d’un groupe résolument cosmopolite, salon d’un genre nouveau la suivant « partout où elle se trouve » : le Groupe de Coppet. Comment les écrits de Germaine de Staël reflètent-ils son souci permanent du cosmopolitisme ? C’est ce que nous examinerons au gré d’un parcours dans l’oeuvre staëlien, habité par une curiosité cosmopolite faisant de l’écrivaine une véritable citoyenne du monde. [less ▲]

We propose an analytical procedure to fully solve a two-level system coupled to phonons. Instead of using the common formulation in terms of linear and quadratic system-phonon couplings, we introduce different phonons depending on the system electronic level. We use this approach to recover known results for the linear-coupling limit in a simple way. More importantly, we derive results for the quadratic coupling induced by a phonon frequency change, a problem considered up to now as not analytically solvable. [less ▲]

Characterizing the work statistics of driven complex quantum systems is generally challenging because of the exponential growth with the system size of the number of transitions involved between different energy levels. We consider the quantum work distribution associated with the driving of chaotic quantum systems described by random matrix Hamiltonians and characterize exactly the work statistics associated with a sudden quench for arbitrary temperature and system size. Knowledge of the work statistics yields the Loschmidt echo dynamics of an entangled state between two copies of the system of interest, the thermofield double state. This echo dynamics is dictated by the spectral form factor. We discuss its relation to frame potentials and its use to assess information scrambling. [less ▲]

That tradition plays a role in family business is a long-acknowledged but often self-evident notion in family business research. As a result, the explanatory potential of tradition is oriented towards its function as a resource for enabling organizational performance or its role in aiding stability and change within family business settings, has been overshadowed. Drawing from a reading of selected works in sociology, history and moral philosophy, this paper addresses this limitation by offering a theoretical reflection on the notion of tradition. These readings provide a way of departing from the common view of tradition as unitary, static and fixed towards a conceptualization that views tradition as both multi-layered and multi-faceted—constituting an unfolding process that is continuously being received and enacted in family firms. This theoretical paper contributes to the family business literature by strengthening the conceptual foundation of the notion of tradition by advocating tradition as a concept through which the past and future is immanent in the present. From this, a future agenda for research is outlined. [less ▲]

We study the ultimate limits to the decoherence rate associated with dephasing processes. Fluctuating chaotic quantum systems are shown to exhibit extreme decoherence, with a rate that scales exponentially with the particle number, thus exceeding the polynomial dependence of systems with fluctuating k-body interactions. Our findings suggest the use of quantum chaotic systems as a natural test bed for spontaneous wave function collapse models. We further discuss the implications on the decoherence of AdS/CFT black holes resulting from the unitarity loss associated with energy dephasing. [less ▲]

Entre 1811 et 1813, Staël compose ses deux derniers ouvrages, Dix années d’exil et les Considérations sur la Révolution française. Si ces textes diffèrent par leur tonalité, il existe entre eux des effets d’échos et des transferts : certains passages sont repris, modifiés d’une œuvre à l’autre. L’article se penche sur ces modalités de transfert, en étudiant certains moments clefs de l’histoire impériale, tels que présentés par Staël, interrogeant ainsi la recomposition du passé par l’auteur.

This paper (originally written in 2016) presents the evidence requirements applicable before 19th century anti-slave trade courts. It examines several emblematic cases showing that de jure considerations (such as the emancipated status of passengers, or even the fact that slavery did no longer exist in the country of destination) did not prevent judges from holding, based on a de facto standard of treatment, that acts of slave trading had been committed.

With the benefit of hindsight, presenting the Treaty of Versailles as an example of ‘peace through law’ might seem like a provocation. And yet, the extreme variety and innovativeness of international procedural and substantial ‘experiments’ attempted as a result of the Treaty of Versailles and the other Paris Peace Treaties of 1919–1920 remain striking even today. While many of these ‘experiments’ had a lasting impact on international law and dispute settlement after the Second World War, and considerably broadened the very idea of ‘peace through law’, they have often disappeared from collective memories. Relying on both legal and historical research, this book provides a global overview of how the Paris Peace Treaties impacted on dispute resolution in the interwar period, both substantially and procedurally. The book’s accounts of several all-but-forgotten international tribunals and their case law include references to archival records and photographic illustrations. [less ▲]

This entry provides a detailed account and assessment of the Upper Silesian Mixed Commission, a quasi-judicial body instituted from 1922 to 1937 between Germany and Poland in a region partitioned between the two states. The Mixed Commission for Upper Silesia offered the most sophisticated mechanism for the protection of minority rights during the Interwar Period. As a predecessor of the European Court of Human Rights, its legacy, especially its case-law on questions such as indirect discrimination, remains relevant today. [less ▲]
