Ici Londres, des Européens parlent de l’Europe, 1904-1914: Emil Reich, J. Ellis Baker et les “races” européennes dans les grandes revues édouardiennes

Abstract : In the Edwardian Era, the eugenicist discourse seemed to prevail in the reviews such as the Contemporary Review. Fortnightly Review. Nineteenth Century Review. Reading eugenicist articles did not mean becoming a eugenicist. However, this discourse did not shock their readership. The social “race” of British eugenicists was an avatar of the cultural race that boosted 19th century triumphant imperialism after 1850. A racist and imperialistic ideology, it targeted European groups even though they were white people. This notion of European “races” served Anglo-Saxonism, that proved the supposedly cultural superiority of “Anglo-Saxons” who were descendants of German (mostly Teutonic) invaders.
