Beyond Left and Right

New Perspectives on the Politics of the Third Republic

Linda E. Mitchell

The articles in this issue all reflect on the various ways in which political trends during the period of the Third Republic have been categorized by both historians of the period and the political actors themselves. Ranging in topic from political trends in the French military in the years after the Dreyfus Affair to the participation of women in the politics of the extreme Right, these pieces focus especially on the need to transcend categories of Left and Right in order to discuss more accurately the ways in which the political party system developed, in particular during the years between the world wars.

Introduction

Women, Gender, Law, and Remembering Shona Kelly Wray

Linda E. Mitchell

This special issue combines articles derived from the same GMS conference held at Winchester in January 2014—this time focusing on issues of women, gender, and law—and articles derived from a meeting of the Mid- America Medieval Association (MAMA) held at the University of Missouri– Kansas City (UMKC) in April 2013, which was dedicated to the memory of the late Shona Kelly Wray, associate professor of history at UMKC, whose untimely and tragic death had occurred in the previous May.

Through the analysis of three important texts—Gerald of Wales's Topographia Hibernica, the poem known as both The Song of Dermot and the Earl and The Deeds of the Normans in Ireland, and the 1367 Statutes of Kilkenny—this article seeks to demonstrate that characterizations of the Irish by the English during the first centuries of conquest and settlement established the Irish as differently gendered from the English. This is shown through the use of terms that define the Irish as sexually, socially, and culturally deviant, as unmanly and emasculated, and as legally and culturally inferior even to English women.

Editorial

A Message from Senior Editor Linda E. Mitchell

Linda E. Mitchell

With this first issue of Volume 44, I have some announcements to make. First, I am very sorry to report the death earlier this year of one of our long-standing members of the Editorial Board, Vicki L. Eaklor. Vicki was a professor of US history at Alfred University for 30 years before retiring in 2014. She served as a guest editor, peer reviewer, and contributor to the journal for most of her tenure at AU. A terrific colleague, talented musician, creative scholar, and brilliant teacher, Vicki will be missed by all who knew her zest for life, intellectual rigor, sense of humor, and love of good bourbon.

Second, as of this issue, I am announcing my retirement from the position of senior editor of Historical Reflections/Réflexions Historiques.

Third, I have the distinct pleasure of announcing that one of our Editorial Board members, Dr. Elizabeth Macknight, of the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, will be taking on the duties of senior editor beginning with the second issue of the year, and that W. Brian Newsome will be remaining as coeditor.
