** 25 octobre à 19h : Rencontre avec LAURE MURAT pour la parution de son essai La loi du genre (Fayard). Déjà auteure de l'admirable Passage de l'Odéon et de La Maison du docteur Blanche, Laure Murat, historienne dont on apprécie la clarté de langage et le ton vivant, livre ici un travail sur "le troisième sexe" qui défierait la loi du genre. Au XIXè siècle, femmes viriles, hommes effeminés, androgynes, travesti-e-s... étaient désignés-es par cette expression qui qualifiait également les femmes émancipées. Laure Murat a utilisé une large documentation : archives de la police, traités de sexologie, littérature, journaux. Elle a aussi analysé quelques parcours significatifs et les discours qui ont construit les notions de féminin et masculin. Un point de vue historique sur la construction des normes de genre.

Hello and thanks for the opportunity to read and post on your blog.

I’ve just posted an article related to travel tips for seniors on my blog and I thought maybe you’d be interested in reading it. Here is short preview of some of the areas I covered:

- Prefer a backpack on wheels instead of a suitcase, you could pull it behind you when your back hurts or you are exhausted.
- Consider checking your bag in with the airlines, because it would become an unnecessary burden to be dragged all over the airport or the city if you are going to have a short visit.
- You could stay outside the city, in a hostel maybe, because it is cheaper, less crowded and the air is much fresher, but you have to walk or use the transport more, to get in the city or to the station.
- Most museums, some concert halls, railways, airlines, bus lines, ferry and shipping lines have a discount policy for seniors.
- Electronic devices are useful but sometimes they can give you a lot of headaches. You could help yourself with a micro-tape recorder to record your notes. It would be easier than to write and you would put them down on paper later, to share your notes with your family.
- If you bring a camera with you to keep the beautiful images alive along the time then make sure you know how to handle it or you might fail to record them not only on that camera but also in your eyes.

For more resources on travelling to Europe you are welcome to visit my blog, where you can also get acces to some excellent maps of Rome and maps of Berlin, together with information on hotels and restaurants.

Best regards,

Michael R.

Have you ever had to book your home start breakdown into a garage and found that the date and time is not to your convenience? Have you ever had to leave your car at the garage for a long period of time and either had to arrange with a family member to collect you and then take you back there to collect your vehicle or had to use public transport to get back home because the garage does not have a courtesy car for your use? Have you ever been in the situation where the repairs are urgent on your vehicle and your normal garage cannot fit you in for days so you end up telephoning garage after garage in an attempt to book your car in? home start breakdown http://www.onecallmotorcare.co.uk/Simon/index.shtml
