André Gide Ou L'Ecriture Bifide, Abdelkhaleq JAYED 2022 Faculté des Lettres et des Sciences Humaines, Agadir, Maroc

André Gide Ou L'Ecriture Bifide, Abdelkhaleq Jayed

Dirassat

Andre Gide or Bifid Writing

This study on the relationship between space and writing in Gide aims to show that this category of experience, quite often considered in its apparent stasis as sterile and less relevant, and having suffered unfairly, in the innumerable works that have been done on the work and life of Gide, of a certain marginalization, fulfills and fully accomplishes its role of revealing the great themes deeply and firmly anchored in the psyche of the writer.

Analyse De «Ben» Dans Le Dlscours De Migrants Arabophones Travaillant En France), Hassan Boujghagh

Dirassat

Analysis of "BEN" in the Story of Arabic -Speaking Migrants Working in France

We propose here to examine in the discourse of a group of Arabic-speaking migrants (working in the North of France for about twenty years), the functioning of one of the markers that the speaker has the possibility of inserting in an utterance where, often for reasons of difficulty of formulation but also for different reasons, the spoken chain has been interrupted. Almost all of these phenomena are part of a group of elements called “conversation structuring markers” by Roulet et al. (1985), “discourse support” by F. Deloffore …

Communication Skills: a Focus

The purpose of this contribution is to provide a brief summary of communication skills. However, it should be noted that our objective is not at all to question the legitimacy of this notion, but above all to see to what extent the theoretical products that the linguistic proposed for didactics are applicable to the field of teaching language/learning.

De La Morpholologie En Grammaire Fonctionnelle, Abdelfattah Nacer Idrissi

Dirassat

Morphology in Functional Grammar

It is commonly accepted that in any natural language, the word comes under two classes: the basic word and the derived word. The relationship established between these two types of words is a derivation relationship insofar as the derived word has as input the basic word.

Our objective in the present work is to give an account of the place of morphology (whether it is derivational or inflectional) in Functional Grammar (GF, henceforth). To do this, we will be leads to answering the following questions:

(i) How is word structure represented in grammar?

(ii) What is …

Impossible Possible Machines, Christina Vagt 2022 University of California Santa Barbara

Impossible Possible Machines, Christina Vagt

communication +1

Arguing against the current paradigm of computationalism, the article revisits Alexandre Koyré’s history of European techno-rationality and 17th-century figures like Descartes and Galileo. Here, one finds the machine emerging at precisely the time and place in history where the gap between mathematical-geometrical idealization and the reality of bodies and experiments first appeared. Historically, the machine is rooted in theatrical mechanics of simulation, illusion, fiction, and deception. Structurally, it appears in between subject and object, the ‘thinking’ and the ‘mechanical’ substances. With the machine, mathematical science becomes possible because it creates an outside or model to the theoretical inside of European …


La Circassienne: A Study Of The Female Circus Artist In French Literature, Crystal Menninga 2022 University of Massachusetts Amherst

La Circassienne: A Study Of The Female Circus Artist In French Literature, Crystal Menninga

Masters Theses

This study examines how the female circus artist is represented in twelve pieces of French literature ranging from the late nineteenth century to the modern day. The books are divided into three categories by author type: first, authors without a circus background; second, male authors involved in the circus world; and third, women involved in the circus world. Although predicted that the first section would reveal the largest use of stereotypes and misogyny, the second would show the sexist expectations of the circassienne onstage and off, and the third would call out these stereotypes and suggest improvements, there was less …

‘Pavilions Of Dreaming’: Bodies As Structures In Kay Sage’S Demain, Monsieur Silber, Katharine Conley 2022 William & Mary

‘Pavilions Of Dreaming’: Bodies As Structures In Kay Sage’S Demain, Monsieur Silber, Katharine Conley

Arts & Sciences Articles

Born Katherine Linn Sage near Albany, New York, in 1898, Kay Sage is best known for her “architectonic” landscapes, described as her “private cloudland” in Time magazine. Less well known are her four volumes of poetry published between 1957 and 1962, three in French, one in English. Although her paintings are devoid of living beings, with one notable exception, they are populated with structures and structural elements, which, in her poems, stand in for herself, for her own body, as a supplement to her painted work. Her friend James Thrall Soby described the abstracted structures in her paintings as “pavilions …


Humoring The Third Republic: Le Rire In French Politics And Popular Culture, 1894–1918, Andrew C. Kotick 2022 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Humoring The Third Republic: Le Rire In French Politics And Popular Culture, 1894–1918, Andrew C. Kotick

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation studies the illustrated satirical periodical Le Rire in its historical context between its debut during the Dreyfus Affair and the conclusion of World War I. Adopting a multivalent approach to the historical study of graphic humor, it argues that Le Rire constitutes a significant corpus of evidence for understanding the political, commercial, social, and cultural novelties of its time, and maintained an ambivalent relationship with the young institutions and functionaries of the French Third Republic. As France’s leading satirical periodical, Le Rire served as a powerful medium for broadcasting nascent and extreme ideas to a mass reading public …


Heritage Repair: Revisiting Familial And Collective Histories In Filiation Narratives By Dalila Kerchouche, Colombe Schneck And Martine Storti, Rebecca R. Raitses 2022 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Heritage Repair: Revisiting Familial And Collective Histories In Filiation Narratives By Dalila Kerchouche, Colombe Schneck And Martine Storti, Rebecca R. Raitses

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This thesis offers a critical reading of three French narratives: Dalila Kerchouche’s Mon père, ce harki (2003), Colombe Schneck’s Les guerres de mon père (2018), and Martine Storti’s L’arrivée de mon père en France (2008). These works combine representations of familial history with the explorations of personal and collective traumas or repression. The study addresses the following dimensions of the texts: 1) The catalyst of intergenerational silence behind these and many other similar works; 2) The textual interplay between storytelling and material evidence; 3) The ways in which the authors combine narratives of familial hardships on one hand, and of …


Outlaws And Traitors: Justifying Rebellion In The Old French Epic Of Revolt, Klayton Tietjen 2022 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Outlaws And Traitors: Justifying Rebellion In The Old French Epic Of Revolt, Klayton Tietjen

Doctoral Dissertations

The plot of many chansons de geste hinges on acts that would have been considered treasonable by medieval legal custom. Yet despite conspicuously treasonous behavior, rebel characters remain the heroes of the tales. Coming to an understanding of the esoteric way that medieval poets and their audiences would have perceived the difference between rebel characters and traitor characters is the pursuit of this study. Through an investigation of the narrative logic and poetic details of epic poems like Girart de Vienne and other chansons de geste, the divergence between treachery and rebellion can be shown to reside in narrative …

Defining Black Masculinities: Intersectional Analyses Of Gender, Race And Sexuality In Caribbean And Latin American Literature, 1955 To Present, Jerry Eugene Scruggs Jr.

Doctoral Dissertations

The objective of my dissertation is to define and construct parameters for analyzing the Afro-descendant male experience in four specific texts: Mi compadre el General Sol [General Sun, My Brother] (1955), Adire y el tiempo roto [Adire and Broken Time] (1967), Sortilégio II: mistério negro de Zumbi redivivo [Sorcery 2: Black Mystery of Resurrected Zumbí] (1979), and Negro: Este color que me queda bonito [Black: This Color Looks Good on Me] (2013). Black masculinities are distinct and this study sets five parameters: 1) Sexual Prowess, 2) Contentious relationship with the White woman, 3) Violence and Toxic Masculinity, 4) Emotive Numbness, …

The Intersections Of Migration And Identity In Young Adult Literature Of The French-Speaking World, Kaitlyn Waller 2022 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The Intersections Of Migration And Identity In Young Adult Literature Of The French-Speaking World, Kaitlyn Waller

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

Both young adult literature and novels of migration frequently deal with the construction of identity, from coming-of-age stories to narratives of intercultural exploration and hybridization. Young adult narratives of migration, then, represent a fascinating intersection of two literary traditions for the exploration of questions of identity. However, young adult literature and its varied subgenres are often overlooked among the broader critical scholarship of migration narratives. Indeed, the genre is often critiqued as too simplistic or pedagogical to truly merit consideration among adult readers and academics. Through an in-depth analysis of nine novels, however, I explore questions of identity development in …

The Levant: France’S Colonial Crucible, Michael Adelson

French Summer Fellows

In the medieval era of religious and political tumult that culminated with the Crusades, (mostly) Roman Catholic Western European citizens from all walks of life committed themselves to conquer Jerusalem and wrest control of historically Christian lands from the Muslim polities that claimed the region. The historical Kingdom of France was a major contributor to the Crusades, and as such, the feudal realms established in the Levant in the wake of the First Crusade were dominated by former French crusaders and citizenry. The geographic boundaries and demography of these Crusader States are reminiscent of French hegemony in the Middle East …


Reading Contemporary French Literature, Warren Motte 2022 University of Colorado Boulder

Reading Contemporary French Literature, Warren Motte

Zea E-Books Collection

This book focuses upon a dozen French writers who have helped to set the terms for contemporary French literature and its horizon of possibility. Though they have pursued significantly different paths, each one of them is committed to the principle of literary innovation, to making French literature new. They work in full cognizance of literary history and of the tradition that they inherit, even as they reshape that tradition in each of their books. They invite their readers to take a critical stance with regard to those books, and to participate actively in the construction of literary meaning. Both bold …
