Two Ways Out/Back “Home”: Two Transnational And Literary Perspectives In Chinese Puzzle And Budapeste, Seth A. Compaoré 2018 University of Missouri-Columbia

Two Ways Out/Back “Home”: Two Transnational And Literary Perspectives In Chinese Puzzle And Budapeste, Seth A. Compaoré

Vernacular: New Connections in Language, Literature, & Culture

In the current global cinematic practices, it almost becomes a natural phenomenon that filmmakers leave home to film in the spaces beyond the borders of their homelands. These films are often categorized as transnational films. According to Hamid Naficy (2003: 204), “transnational films are framed within the “national cinemas” of their host countries and established cinematic genres”. Budapeste (2009) directed by Walter Carvalho and Chinese Puzzle (2013) directed by Cédric Klapisch are both transnational films from two different regions: South America, Mercosul (Brazil) and the European Union (France). Because both films present transitional places (airports) and transnational spaces, the physical ...


Le Mythe Comme Patrie Littéraire De L’Écrivain Migrant, Erika Mandarino 2018 Tulane University

Le Mythe Comme Patrie Littéraire De L’Écrivain Migrant, Erika Mandarino

Vernacular: New Connections in Language, Literature, & Culture

L’écrivain migrant contemporain tente d’accéder à la reconnaissance dans la littérature-monde en français, et ceci dépend grandement de la décentralisation de la littérature française nationale. Étant un migrant politique, professionnel, issu d’une diaspora ou autre, l’écrivain, coupé de ses racines nationales, renonce à sa patrie et écrit à partir d’un espace situé entre-deux cultures. Ici, l’identité de l’individu surpasse l’identité culturelle. Les psychologues s’accordent à dire que les mêmes mythes se retrouvent à la base du subconscient collectif de chaque culture ; le mythe représente donc un lieu commun auquel l’écrivain ...


La Ciudad Como Espacio De La Marginalidad: Un Acercamiento Crítico A Un Oso Rojo, Mariana Pensa 2018 UCLA Extension

La Ciudad Como Espacio De La Marginalidad: Un Acercamiento Crítico A Un Oso Rojo, Mariana Pensa

SouthEast Coastal Conference on Languages & Literatures (SECCLL)

Nos proponemos realizar un análisis del film argentino Un oso rojo (2002, dirigido por Israel Adrián Caetano). Un punto de entrada para el análisis nos remite al concepto mismo de lo que es una ciudad, tal como Lewis Mumford lo expone en su canónico artículo “What is a city?”. Si la ciudad se constituye, al decir de Mumford, en espacio simbólico de “unidad colectiva”, en donde los hombres realizan sus actividades mas “útiles”, las preguntas a las que nos llevan estos conceptos serán ¿cuál es el estatuto de una ciudad recorrida por la violencia? ¿Cómo el espacio refiere y significa ...

Poetry Of Roe 8, Nandi Chinna

Landscapes: the Journal of the International Centre for Landscape and Language

Poetry of Roe 8

The occasion for the writing of these poems was activism surrounding the controversial highway known as the Roe 8 extension in the areas of Cockburn and Fremantle in Western Australia. Planned in the 1950s, Roe 8 is contentious for a number of reasons, including extraordinary political deals over funding, undue process regarding environmental reporting, lack of a business case, inadequate noise and traffic modelling, erasure of Indigenous heritage sites, and clearing of the sensitive Beeliar wetlands and Coolbellup banksia woodlands which were designated a Threatened Ecological Community in 2016. During the summer of 2016/2017 contractors ...


Alternate Facts And Reality Effects In Antoine Bello’S Roman Américain, Jennifer Willging 2018 The Ohio State University

Alternate Facts And Reality Effects In Antoine Bello’S Roman Américain, Jennifer Willging

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Like several of Antoine Bello’s eight other novels to date, Roman américain contains a staggering array of minute details, which includes the names of dozens of fictional characters, businesses, associations, institutions, locations, and publications. These fictional proper nouns are intertwined throughout the novel with dozens of real ones, and this promiscuous intermixing contributes to the careful construction of a fictional world that rivals the real one in all its complexity. In this essay I examine Bello’s masterful production in Roman américain of verisimilitude, which he creates largely but not exclusively though his exploitation of the documentary fiction genre ...

The Ethics Of Citation In Patrick Modiano’S Dora Bruder And Georges Perec’S W Ou Le Souvenir D’Enfance, Roderick Cooke 2018 Florida Atlantic University

The Ethics Of Citation In Patrick Modiano’S Dora Bruder And Georges Perec’S W Ou Le Souvenir D’Enfance, Roderick Cooke

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

This article compares the representations of the Holocaust in Georges Perec’s W ou le souvenir d’enfance (W or the Memory of Childhood) and Patrick Modiano’s Dora Bruder. I concentrate on the two authors’ use of citation, in both cases of texts written by victims of the deportations, and identify a respective ethics of citation in each work by drawing on Antoine Compagnon’s theory. Modiano’s is best characterized through the term ‘responsibility,’ a responsibility he urges the reader to share with him in memorializing the wartime past. In the case of Perec, ‘resonance’ describes the manner ...

Experimental Writing, Experimental Reading, Warren Motte

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

The notion of "experimental writing" is difficult to define with any kind of precision. Most of the time it is invoked in a largely offhanded manner, as if its meaning were immediately clear to everyone, obviating the need for further discussion. That assumption is a matter of expediency rather than anything else, for even a cursory glance at the way people use the term quickly reveals that the way we understand it varies considerably, changing over both time and cultural space. This essay seeks to examine how the idea of the experimental expresses itself in the tradition of the twentieth-century ...
