Île Héron (France)

Géolocalisation sur la carte : Nantes

L’île Héron, est une île située sur la Loire dépendante de la commune de Saint-Sébastien-sur-Loire dans le département de la Loire-Atlantique.

L’île, d’une superficie de 69 hectares, mesure 2 500 mètres de longueur sur 475 mètres de largeur. Elle est située à 390 mètres de la rive nord de la Loire et à 170 mètres de l’île Pinette située au sud dont elle est séparée par un bras du fleuve, « le Gourdeau ».

L’île héron est inaccessible en hiver sans une embarcation, car aucun pont ne la relie aux rives du fleuve, ce qui lui a ainsi permis de garder un caractère naturel et séculaire. Durant la saison estivale un gué permet de l’atteindre mais l’île reste interdite au public pour des raisons de sécurité et pour éviter le dérangement de la faune.

Ancienne propriété agricole, une ferme abandonnée typique des îles ligériennes (refuge pour les bêtes à l’étage, grange…), baptisée « La Case », subsiste près de la pointe amont de l’île.

L’île Héron et ses deux voisines, les îles Forget et Pinette, constituent un patrimoine insulaire de 140 hectares, qualifiés de « poumon vert de l’agglomération nantaise ». L’île, d’un grand intérêt ornithologique

, est classée en Zone naturelle d’intérêt écologique, faunistique et floristique, et est également sous protection Natura 2000.

Le Conseil général de la Loire-atlantique est propriétaire des 7/8e de l’île, la commune possédant un huitième située vers la pointe avale. Le département développe pour ce site naturel un projet de réhabilitation écologique. Ce programme vise le retour progressif à un paysage de prairies typique des îles de Loire. La suppression de la peupleraie, plantée dans les années 1990 par le précédent propriétaire, contribue à redonner son caractère ligérien à l’île. 3 344 peupliers furent abattus à l’automne 2007, à raison de 200 arbres par jour

Tony Hillerman

Anthony Grove “Tony” Hillerman (May 27, 1925 – October 26, 2008) was an award-winning American author of detective novels and non-fiction works best known for his Navajo Tribal Police mystery novels. Several of his works have been adapted as big-screen and television movies.

Anthony Grove Hillerman was born in Sacred Heart, Oklahoma to August Alfred Hillerman, a farmer and shopkeeper, and his wife, Lucy Grove. He was the youngest of their three children, and the second son. His paternal grandparents were born in Germany, and his maternal grandparents were born in England

. He grew up in Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma, attending elementary and high school with Potawatomie children.

He was a decorated combat veteran of World War II, serving from August 1943 to October 1945. He served as a mortar-man in the 103rd Infantry Division. He earned the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, and a Purple Heart. He attended the University of Oklahoma after the war, meeting Marie Unzner, a student in microbiology. The couple wed and have one biological child and five adopted children.

From 1948–62, he worked as a journalist, moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1952. In 1966, he moved his family to Albuquerque, where he earned a master’s degree from the University of New Mexico. It was during his time as a writer for the Borger News-Herald in Borger, Texas that he became acquainted with the sheriff of Hutchinson County, the man upon whom he would pattern the main character in his Joe Leaphorn novels. He taught journalism from 1966 to 1987 at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, and also began writing novels. He lived there with his wife Marie until his death in 2008. At the time of his death, they had been married 60 years and had ten grandchildren.

A consistently bestselling author, he was ranked as New Mexico’s 22nd wealthiest man in 1996. He wrote 18 books in his Navajo series. He wrote more than 30 books total, among them a memoir and books about the Southwest, its beauty and its history. His literary honors were awarded for his Navajo books. Hillerman’s books have been translated into eight languages, among them Danish and Japanese.

Hillerman’s writing is noted for the cultural details he provides about his subjects: Hopi, Zuni, European-American, federal agents, and especially Navajo Tribal Police. His works in nonfiction and in fiction reflect his appreciation of the natural wonders of the American Southwest and his appreciation of its people, particularly the Navajo. His mystery novels are set in the Four Corners area of New Mexico and Arizona, sometimes reaching into Colorado and Utah, with occasional forays to the big cities of Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and New York City. The protagonists are Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee of the Navajo tribal police. Lt. Leaphorn was introduced in Hillerman’s first novel, The Blessing Way (1970). Sgt. Jim Chee was introduced in the fourth novel, People of Darkness. The two first work together in the seventh novel, Skinwalkers, considered his breakout novel, with a distinct increase in sales with the two police officers working together.

Hillerman repeatedly acknowledged his debt to an earlier series of mystery novels written by the British-born Australian author Arthur W. Upfield and set among tribal aborigines in remote desert regions of tropical and subtropical Australia. The Upfield novels began to be published in 1928 and featured a half-European, half-aboriginal Australian hero, Detective-inspector Napoleon (Bony) Bonaparte. Bony worked with deep understanding of tribal traditions. The character was based on the achievements of an aborigine known as Tracker Leon, whom Upfield had met during his years in the Australian bush.

He discussed his debt to Upfield in many interviews and in his introduction to the posthumous 1984 reprint of Upfield’s A Royal Abduction. In the introduction, he described the appeal of the descriptions in Upfield’s crime novels. It was descriptions both of the harsh outback areas and of “the people who somehow survived upon them” that lured him. “When my own Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police unravels a mystery because he understands the ways of his people, when he reads the signs in the sandy bottom of a reservation arroyo, he is walking in the tracks Bony made 50 years ago.”

He also mentioned Eric Ambler, Graham Greene and Raymond Chandler as authors who influenced him as he wrote the Leaphorn and Chee novels.

Tony Hillerman died on October 26, 2008, of pulmonary failure in Albuquerque at the age of 83.

In an interview published in Le Monde, Hillerman said his Navajo name means “He who is afraid of his horse.” His novels were popular in France. Hillerman credits that popularity both to French curiosity about other cultures and to his translator, Pierre Bondil.

Hillerman is considered one of New Mexico’s foremost novelists. In Albuquerque, the Tony Hillerman Library was dedicated in 2008, and the Tony Hillerman Middle School (part of Volcano Vista High School) opened in 2009. Dance Hall of the Dead, published in 1973 earned Hillerman the Grand Prix de Littérature Policière in 1987, a French international literary honor. He was awarded the Owen Wister Award in 2008 for “Outstanding Contributions to the American West.”

Hillerman was a decorated combat veteran of World War II; he earned the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, and a Purple Heart as a mortarman in the 103rd Infantry Division.

He won and was nominated for numerous awards for his writing and his work with other writers. His first nomination came in 1972, with his novel The Fly on the Wall being nominated for an Edgar Award in the “Best Mystery Novel” category. Two years later his novel Dance Hall of the Dead, second book in the Leaphorn-Chee series, won the 1974 Edgar Award for Best Novel. He was again nominated for the “Best Mystery Novel” Edgar Award in 1979 for Listening Woman and lastly in 1989 for A Thief of Time. Hillerman’s non-fictional work Talking Mysteries was nominated in 1992 for the Edgar Award in the “Best Critical or Biographical” category.

In 1987, Hillerman received the Grand Prix de Littérature Policière for Dance Hall of the Dead. In 1991, Hillerman received the MWA’s Grand Master Award

. Hillerman received the Nero Award for Coyote Waits and the Navajo Tribe’s Special Friends of the Dineh Award.

Hillerman has also been successful at the annual Anthony Awards. His novel Skinwalkers won the 1988 Anthony Award for “Best Novel” and in the following year A Thief of Time was nominated for the 1989 Anthony Award in the same category. His next nomination was for his Talking Mysteries non-fictional work which was nominated at the 1992 Anthony Awards. His novel Sacred Clowns received a “Best Novel” nomination at the 1994 Anthony Awards; and the following year his short-story collection The Mysterious West won the 1995 Anthony Award in the “Best Anthology/Short Story Collection” category. His last win came at the 2002 Anthony Awards at which he won the “Best Non-fiction/Critical Work” award for his memoir Seldom Disappointed.

Two of the Navajo Police novels won The Spur award, given by the Western Writers of America annually. Skinwalkers won the award in 1987 for Western Novel, and The Shape Shifter won in 2007 for Best Western Short Novel.

Seldom Disappointed: A Memoir won the Agatha Award in 2001.

Hillerman’s novels were recognized at the Macavity Awards. A Thief of Time won the “Best Novel” award in 1989 and Talking Mysteries won the “Best Critical/Biographical” award in 1992. Seldom Disappointed also received a nomination in the “Best Biographical/Critical Mystery Work” category in 2002.

He received the Parris Award in 1995 by Southwest Writer’s Workshop for his outstanding service to other writers. In 2002, Hillerman received the Agatha Malice Domestic Award for Lifetime Achievement, given by Malice Domestic for mystery novels in the spirit of Agatha Christie.

In 2013, Hillerman’s daughter, Anne, published the first new novel since 2006 featuring Hillerman’s Navajo Police characters, Spider Woman’s Daughter (ISBN 0062270486); the novel’s protagonist is Jim Chee’s wife, Officer Bernadette Manuelito. Her second book Rock With Wings (ISBN 0062270516) was released in 2015.

;; il fréquente alors Isidore Isou et le milieu lettriste. Très vite, il tisse des liens avec les artistes parisiens qui, dans le sillage de l’art minimal, du Land Art et de l’art conceptuel, mettent en question l’identité de l’auteur et de l’œuvre, la pertinence de la signature et de l’« objet ». En 1969, il montre au Salon de mai un tableau-relief composé de demi-baguettes colorées, puis, pour Work in Progress organisé la même année par Christian Boltanski et Jean Le Gac, il tresse 750 mètres de ficelle sur le portail de l’American Center.

D’abord simple baguette ou “bâton”, elle commence alors à prendre forme.

En 1972, elle fait partie intégrante de son activité et, par extension, de son personnage. L’insertion de Cadere dans le monde international de l’art se construit par étapes et forme peu à peu une “stratégie du déplacement” qui le conduit à Kassel lors de la Documenta 5 de 1972. Le projet du Marcheur de Kassel, où il se rend en train après avoir annoncé qu’il irait à pied (voir La vie possible de Christian Boltanski, Seuil, 2007, pages 73-74), est caractéristique de la façon dont il s’impose sur la scène artistique et en déjoue les codes.

En revendiquant une indépendance absolue vis-à-vis des institutions culturelles, Cadere ne craint pas de s’exposer à l’incompréhension et aux réactions négatives. Tout en recherchant les rencontres, il sait que sa voie demeure intransigeante et solitaire.

“Une barre de bois rond est immuable, toute pièce étant à chaque fois différente l’une de l’autre, l’ensemble du travail étant une constellation. Cette constellation étant strictement limitée. D’un autre côté, mon activité n’a pas de suite, ni d’avenir. Il n’y a pas d’évolution, une barre de bois rond est.” – Lettre à Yvon Lambert, 24 mai 1978

“Je veux dire aussi de mon travail et de ses multiples réalités, il y a un autre fait : c’est le héros. On pourrait dire qu’un héros est au milieu des gens, parmi la foule, sur le trottoir. Il est exactement un homme comme les autres. Mais il a une conscience, peut-être un regard, qui, d’une façon ou d’une autre, permet que les choses viennent presque par une sorte d’innocence” women fashion jewelry. – Lettre à Yvon Lambert, 25 mai 1978

Barry Fell

Barry Fell (born Howard Barraclough Fell) (June 6, 1917 – April 21, 1994) was a professor of invertebrate zoology at the Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology. While his primary professional research included starfish and sea urchins, Fell is most well known for his controversial work in New World epigraphy, arguing that various inscriptions in the Americas are best explained by extensive pre-Columbian contact with Old World civilizations. His writings on epigraphy and archaeology are generally rejected by those mainstream scholars who have considered them.

Fell was born in Lewes, Sussex, England, and was a grandson of the railway engineer and inventor John Barraclough Fell. He moved with his mother to New Zealand in the early 1920s after his father, who was a merchant seaman, died in a shipboard fire.
He returned to the British Isles for graduate work, receiving his Ph.D. at the University of Edinburgh in 1941. Fell then served with the British Army during World War II. In 1946 he returned to New Zealand, where he resumed his academic career

, and lectured in zoology at Victoria University of Wellington.
A world authority on fossil sea urchins, he was recruited by Harvard University in 1964, and emigrated to the United States to join the staff of the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard where he worked until retirement in 1979.
He died of heart failure in San Diego, California, aged 77, while discussing a new book with his publisher.
Though Fell was an accomplished marine biologist at Harvard University, he is best known for three books which claim that many centuries before Christopher Columbus reached America, Celts, Basques, Phoenicians

, Egyptians, and others were visiting North America.
His interest in inscriptions began early in his career with a study of Polynesian petroglyphs published in 1940, but his most famous work came much later, starting in 1976 with his publication of America BC, in which he proposed translations of alleged inscriptions found on rock surfaces and artifacts in North and South America which he believed to be written in Old World scripts and languages. He followed up this work in 1980 with Saga America and in 1982 with Bronze Age America.
Fell’s epigraphic work was not well received in academia. Critics of Fell’s work routinely dismissed him as an amateur, pointing out his lack of formal training in ancient scripts and languages.[full citation needed]
A scholarly response to Fell’s work was prepared by Ives Goddard and William W. Fitzhugh of the Department of Anthropology at the Smithsonian Institution. They stated, in 1978, that “the arguments of America B. C

. are unconvincing. The only accepted case of pre-Columbian European contact in North America remains the Norse site of L’Anse aux Meadows in northern Newfoundland. Perhaps some day credible proof of other early European contacts will be discovered in the New World. However, America B.C. does not contain such proof and does not employ the standard linguistic and archeological methods that would be necessary to convince specialists in these fields.”
One example of Fell’s claims is his contention in Saga America that Brendan of Clonfert may have reached North America centuries before Columbus. This is based on Fell’s translation, published in the magazine Wonderful West Virginia in 1983, of two rock-cut inscriptions located at archaeological sites in Wyoming and Boone counties, West Virginia. According to Fell, these inscriptions narrate the story of Christ’s nativity and are written in an old Irish script called Ogham, dating back to the 6th or 8th century AD. This led to the publication of articles in the journal The West Virginia Archeologist that were highly critical of Fell’s conclusions and methodology, including a 1983 article by archaeologist and historian W

. Hunter Lesser describing Fell’s claims as pseudoscientific and unreliable. In 1989 lawyers Monroe Oppenheimer and Willard Wirtz wrote an article based on opinions of academic archaeologists and linguists to dispute that the inscription is written in Ogham script. They further accused Fell of deliberate fraud.
David H. Kelley, an archaeologist at the University of Calgary who is credited with a major breakthrough in the decipherment of Mayan glyphs, complained about Fell in a 1990 essay: “Fell’s work [contains] major academic sins, the three worst being distortion of data, inadequate acknowledgment of predecessors, and lack of presentation of alternative views.” In the same essay, however, Kelley went on to state that “I have no personal doubts that some of the inscriptions which have been reported are genuine Celtic ogham.” Kelley concluded: “Despite my occasional harsh criticism of Fell’s treatment of individual inscriptions, it should be recognized that without Fell’s work there would be no [North American] ogham problem to perplex us. We need to ask not only what Fell has done wrong in his epigraphy, but also where we have gone wrong as archaeologists in not recognizing such an extensive European presence in the New World.”
A survey of 340 teaching archaeologists in 1983, showed 95.7% had a “negative” view of Barry Fell’s claims (considering them pseudo-archaeology), 2.9% had a “neutral” view, and only 1.4% had a “positive” view (regarding them as factual).
