The Huguenots

The essays in this book examine the role of history and memory in shaping the transnational Huguenot diaspora. They explore the impact of Huguenot emigres on the societies in which they settled and in particular the way that Huguenot history, and collective memory of that history, shaped the relationships between the Huguenots and their host communities. The essays show how a `Huguenot' identity was preserved, re-shaped, and manipulated, both by the descendants of the original Huguenots and among the broader communities in which they settled. The essays also show how the collective memory of the Huguenot past that had emerged among European and American Protestants played a critical role in the transformation of Huguenot identity over four centuries. Contributors include H. H. Leonard, Gregory Dodds, Lisa Diller, Robin Gwynn, D. J. B. Trim, David Onnekink, Andrew C. Thompson, Vivienne Larminie, Randolph Vigne, Paul McGraw

"In the end, the contributors, while addressing largely traditional themes, have advanced new and valuable perspectives. The emerging portrait of this substantial and well-known early modern refugee community is in some ways familiar, in others unanticipated. The findings are invariably nuanced and discerning." Raymond A. Mentzer, University of Iowa. In: Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 65, No. 2 (Summer 2012), pp. 603-604. `'This collection presents the reader with a variety of ways trough which the Huguenot exile experience can be understood and it should provide scholars in a number of related fields some interesting approaches and ideas with which to engage''. Jameson Tucker, University of Warwick. In: Sixteenth Century Journal, Vol. 44, No. 1, 2013, p. 185.
