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 ...

A Case Study: The Attitudes Of A Teaching Assistant Of French Toward Instructional Technology, Farida Emelia Ngandu Tshiebue 2018 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

A Case Study: The Attitudes Of A Teaching Assistant Of French Toward Instructional Technology, Farida Emelia Ngandu Tshiebue

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

Technology has shaped the personal experiences of Teaching Assistants (TAs) of French at the collegiate level in the United States (US), what they feel about the technology tools that are accessible in their work environment, and how they use these tools in their practice of teaching. Yet, there is limited research on the specific topic of the attitudes of TAs of French toward the instructional technologies that are available to them. This study sought to investigate the attitudes of a singular TA of French at a southern US university toward instructional technology (IT) by exploring the dynamics of IT use ...

Trois Robes De Bal Selon Mme De Genlis, Ou L’Émotion De Statue, Servanne Woodward 2017 The University of Western Ontario

Trois Robes De Bal Selon Mme De Genlis, Ou L’Émotion De Statue, Servanne Woodward

Le Monde français du dix-huitième siècle

Mlle de Clermont reçoit une robe de bal, l'abîme en enroulant son pied dans du tissus, se change pour être vêtue plus simplement et se mouler aux exigences socio-esthétiques de son amant. En contre partie, celui-ci s'anime. Plusieurs des écrits de Genlis impliquent une configuration narrative évoquant Pygmalion et Dédale, et le motif d'un partenaire de bal qui immobilise la jeune héroïne, ou l'empêche de poursuivre ses pas en la retenant par sa robe, en lui faisant changer de robe, en la modelant pour la statufier, en la jetant sur la paille ou sous le chaume ...


Alternative Intimacies, Sympathy And Sexuality In Voltaire’S Zaire, Jennifer E. Row 2017 Boston University

Alternative Intimacies, Sympathy And Sexuality In Voltaire’S Zaire, Jennifer E. Row

Le Monde français du dix-huitième siècle

In 1793 Laurent Jolicoeur, a freed black in Saint-Domingue petitions for the release of an enslaved woman whom he calls Zaïre. As proof of her virtue, he notes that all of her children were “de sa couleur” – the appropriateness of her non-miscegenated sexual desire stands in for proof of her virtue. While we never ascertain Zaïre’s outcome, the fate of her literary predecessor in Voltaire’s 1732 Zaïre—one of the most popular plays performed in Saint-Domingue--ends in tragic murder. As an enslaved French girl raised in captivity under the Muslim Sultan Orosmane, the fictional Zaire and her captor ...


Un Regard "Camp" Sur Manon Lescaut: L'Esthétisation Du Moral, Jenai Engelhard Humphreys 2017 Boston University

Un Regard "Camp" Sur Manon Lescaut: L'Esthétisation Du Moral, Jenai Engelhard Humphreys

Le Monde français du dix-huitième siècle

This article argues for a camp reading of Prévost’s 1731 novel Manon Lescaut, which opens with unabashed melodrama: a beautiful woman in chains, a lover who follows her to the ends of the earth, locals in an enigmatic frenzy, and a beneficent stranger. Hyper-theatricality here plants the possibility of a specific yet atypical reading—one that escapes the banality of melodrama and redeems the “total abjection” (to use David Halperin’s phrase) of failed tragedy, by reveling in Camp’s signature excesses of spectacle, artifice, comic distance, incandescent jusquaboutisme, and flamboyant disregard for the strictures of good taste.

Les Nouveaux Territoires De L’Istoriographie. Se Dessiner À Partir D’Une Faille., Alain Agnessan

Mouvances Francophones

La fiction –non plus uniquement le roman –istorique ou istoriographique, entend investir, par le truchement d'une subjectivité qui se sait complexe et hétérogène, les failles d'un présent qui demeure aussi, sinon beaucoup plus, fuligineux que le passé. Parce que l'istor, ce témoin et cet agent oculaire, ramène au voir, aux politiques du visible, je bifurquerai contrairement à Emmanuel Bouju, vers un ailleurs du domaine littéraire : la bande dessinée. L'exercice permettra de déceler les stratégies grâce auxquelles un istor graphique donne de voir son soi immobilisé et fragmenté dans les failles d'un présent chaotique et continument ...

La B.D Algérienne : Médium Sous Influences ?, Saad Eddine Fatmi

Mouvances Francophones

C’est en lisant par hasard la dépêche d’une agence de presse algérienne sur une vente-dédicace d’un bédéiste algérien révélant son appartenance à l’école d’Hergé que nous nous sommes interrogés sur la présence de modèles ayant influencé la B.D algérienne. En plus, annoncer l’appartenance d’un bédéiste à une école ou une tendance se révèle fort hâtif sans s’attarder sur les aspects graphiques et textuels. Nous tenterons donc de répondre à la question suivante : est-ce que les dessinateurs algériens ont eu à subir l’influence franco-belge dans un élan d’imitation ou par ...
