En-La-Plage Research Themes
820 West Whitehall Road #A3,
The publishing house, Editions Enlaplage, received its title from a username in the epoch-making Napster P2P file-sharing service of the early 2000s. The name evokes the Nevil Shute novel On the Beach (“Le dernier rivage”) depicting a rapid extinction of humankind in the wake of nuclear war, a metaphor for the dire consequences to many that follow the imprudent acts of the few. The spiritual inspiration for the Enlaplage name is Jacques Tati’s film Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday.
Themes of interest: legal history, social history, political history, medieval France and Germany, applied linguistics, historical linguistics, language education, contemporary literature, contemporary art, music composition, music history.
