La Douleur D'Être Et La Lourdeur Du Temps: Une Lecture Existentialiste De Trois Jours Et Le Néant De Youssef Wahboun, Gilbert Ndi Shang 2017 Université de Bayreuth

La Douleur D'Être Et La Lourdeur Du Temps: Une Lecture Existentialiste De Trois Jours Et Le Néant De Youssef Wahboun, Gilbert Ndi Shang

Mouvances Francophones

Cet article aborde la question de l’existentialisme dans Trois jours et le néant de l’écrivain marocain Youssef Wahboun. Le roman opère une diagnose complexe des conditions sociales des personnages tirés du contexte marocain actuel, ce qui lui accorde sa pertinence comme discours sur le social de cet espace précis. Néanmoins, le présent article repose sur le postulat que, par l’usage d’un langage imbu de multiples paliers de significations, le roman délocalise l’horizon de son imaginaire, poussant ainsi sa signification au-delà de la frontière nationale. C’est un roman qui traite de la complexité de la ...


Twenty-First Century Representations Of Albert Camus’S “L’Hôte”, Roland R. Buchta 2017 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Twenty-First Century Representations Of Albert Camus’S “L’Hôte”, Roland R. Buchta

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

Albert Camus, an Algerian-born French writer, philosopher, and winner of the 1957 Nobel Prize in literature, had a significant impact on 20th-century world literature and philosophical thought. Even today, Camus’s essays, novels, plays, and short stories remain relevant and compelling. More recent adaptations of his work incorporate such important themes as the meaning of life and death, French colonialism and practices, and basic human rights. This presentation examines the short story L’Hôte (Eng. The Guest) (1957) from Camus’s the Exile and the Kingdom collection, as well as the graphic novel L’Hôte (2009) by Jacques ...

Culture As A Tool Of Exclusion: An Analysis Of Mathieu Kassovitz's La Haine, Abigail MacCumber 2017 Scripps College

Culture As A Tool Of Exclusion: An Analysis Of Mathieu Kassovitz's La Haine, Abigail Maccumber

Scripps Senior Theses

Using the film La Haine (1995), directed by Mathieu Kassovitz, as an object of analysis, this paper explores culture as a tool of exclusion in France through sociological, architectural, and political contexts. It investigates La Haine as one of the first representations of the banlieue to mainstream French audiences, as well as the ways in which the film reveals how immigrants and children of immigrants struggle to find personal, cultural, and national identity in France.


Robert Parker’S Wine Advocate And The Consequential Pricing Of Provençal Wines, Gweneth Marter 2017 Scripps College

Robert Parker’S Wine Advocate And The Consequential Pricing Of Provençal Wines, Gweneth Marter

Scripps Senior Theses

Robert Parker is an esteemed, somewhat controversial wine-critic. Since 1978, Parker has assigned every wine he tastes a score between 50 and 100. He uses this method to communicate to both consumers and producers his opinion of the quality, taste, and aging potential of the wine. Between the years 2005 and 2015, Robert Parker graded 115 wines from the French region of Provence. The goal of this thesis is to determine whether and to what extent Robert Parker’s grades affect the price of wine. Through descriptive statistics and regression analysis of Robert Parker’s grade and year of production ...

Voice And Agency In William Shakespeare's The Tempest And Aimé Césaire's Une Tempête, Sophie Fahey

Scripps Senior Theses

Then, it examines how in Une Tempête Césaire gives a more active role to Ariel and Caliban in and how giving these characters more space to speak gives them more agency and power.

Pyramide: The Changing Power Structure Of Fashion, Ariana Callan

Scripps Senior Theses

This project examines the changing world of fashion in an interactive digital magazine format. In the past few years, fashion has increasingly been democratizing, as new designers and forms of media increasingly gain influence. Ready-to-wear designers are working with lower-end brands through collaborations, redefining what each brand is supposed to do, while blogging is allowing those whose voices are usually unheard to openly critique and influence fashion. Overall, they are creating a more democratized space, challenging what was once normal in the fashion industry.
