The Bibliothèque Medem: Eighty Years Serving Yiddish Culture, Gilles Rozier 2014 Association of Jewish Libraries

The Bibliothèque Medem: Eighty Years Serving Yiddish Culture, Gilles Rozier

Judaica Librarianship

The Bibliothèque Medem (or Medem-Bibliotek, in Yiddish), in Paris, is the largest Yiddish library in Western and Central Europe, as well as a major Jewish cultural center. Founded in 1928 by a group of Eastern European Jewish immigrants who were aligned with the socialist Bund, its trajectory over eight decades (including the four years of the German occupation) is chronicled here. Today, the collections of the Bibliothèque Medem comprise 20,000 volumes in Yiddish and 10,000 titles in the Latin alphabet dealing with Jewish culture. In addition, it maintains about 30,000 uncataloged book volumes, extensive serial holdings, 300 ...

Attitude Of French Writer-Priest, Dead 33 Years, Reflected In Word And Deed By Pope Francis, Eamon Maher 2014 Dublin Institute of Technology

Attitude Of French Writer-Priest, Dead 33 Years, Reflected In Word And Deed By Pope Francis, Eamon Maher

Articles

On October 30th, 1913, in the French village of Montauban-de- Bretagne, Joseph Lemarchand was born, the only child of a tenant-farming family that was ripped asunder by the death of his father in the Great War. A few decades later, as a writer-priest stationed in the Breton capital, Rennes, Lemarchand took the pseudonym Jean Sulivan, a name inspired by his fascination with the movie Sullivan’s Travels . When reading Pope Francis’ groundbreaking interview last August, I had the uncanny feeling that the new pontiff’s views strongly echo what Sulivan was writing in the 1960s and 1970s. A commitment to ...


“Nedjma As Salammbô: Kateb’S Intertextual Narrative Of National Plurality”, Sage Goellner 2014 SelectedWorks

“Nedjma As Salammbô: Kateb’S Intertextual Narrative Of National Plurality”, Sage Goellner

Sage Goellner

Kateb Yacine’s 1956 novel Nedjma is read as articulating a moment of national awakening. The pursuit of the mysterious character Nedjma by four lovers has been read as an allegory of the quest for an independent Algeria. In this article, I explore the questions opened up by Nedjma’s designation as Salammbô, Gustave Flaubert’s Carthaginian heroine in Salammbô (1862). Nedjma as Salammbô creates a figure of métissage in which one or more cultural traditions is interwoven. In addition, whereas the name “Salammbô” evokes the specific intertext of Flaubert’s novel, any precise reference is made uncertain by the ...

Falling Into Salvation In Cioran, Joseph Acquisto 2014 Kansas State University Libraries

Falling Into Salvation In Cioran, Joseph Acquisto

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

While, at first glance, there seems to be very little room in the thought of E.M. Cioran for the notion of salvation, a closer look reveals that Cioran returns constantly to the vocabulary and the concept of redemption. This article teases out Cioran’s complex use of the topos of salvation throughout his works, with special emphasis on his middle period. I begin by tracing Cioran’s notion of humanity’s fall into time and language, from which he claims there can be no salvation in the traditional Christian sense. Nonetheless, he retains the concept, claiming at various points ...


Migration And Metamorphosis In Marie Ndiaye's Trois Femmes Puissantes, Deborah B. Gaensbauer 2014 Kansas State University Libraries

Migration And Metamorphosis In Marie Ndiaye's Trois Femmes Puissantes, Deborah B. Gaensbauer

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

In her 2009 Goncourt-Prize-winning novel, Trois femmes puissantes (Three Strong Women), Marie Ndiaye experiments with a polyphonic, semi-fantastical rendering of identity-threatening displacements experienced by three women from different socio-geographic backgrounds. In a brief "Counterpoint" at the end of each of the novel's three sections--a narrative take on the musical technique employed by Ndiaye to introduce new focalizations and unexpected turns of events that complicate interpretations of the characters' behavior--each of the women is perceived as metamorphosed into a bird or a birdlike persona. This essay examines the innovative embedding of the shape-shifts in Trois femmes puissantes in both harrowing ...


Complicating Eroticism And The Male Gaze: Feminism And Georges Bataille’S Story Of The Eye, Chris Vanderwees 2014 Kansas State University Libraries

Complicating Eroticism And The Male Gaze: Feminism And Georges Bataille’S Story Of The Eye, Chris Vanderwees

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

This article explores the relationship between feminist criticism and Georges Bataille’s Story of the Eye. Much of the critical work on Bataille assimilates his psychosocial theories in Erotism with the manifestation of those theories in his fiction without acknowledging potential contradictions between the two bodies of work. The conflation of important distinctions between representations of sex and death in Story of the Eye and the writings of Erotism forecloses the possibility of reading Bataille’s novel as a critique of gender relations. This article unravels some of the distinctions between Erotism and Story of the Eye in order to ...
