La Femme Infériorisée Dans L'Éducation Intellectuelle, Michèle C. Magnin 2018 University of San Diego

La Femme Infériorisée Dans L'Éducation Intellectuelle, Michèle C. Magnin

Articles de Jane Misme

Jane Misme affirme que dès le 17e siècle, on a cessé de considérer l’ignorance des femmes comme condition nécessaire de leur état de subordination. Selon elle, les femmes sont des employées travailleuses qui ne manquent pas d’intelligence. Elles ne valent pas mieux que les hommes, mais elles travaillent plus sérieusement. Elle met aussi en garde contre le manque d’exercice physique : les jeunes filles trop protégées s’affaiblissent, sont moins capables d’enfanter et leur indigence physique mène à la dégénérescence de la race.


A Comparative Analysis Of Order And Disorder: Captivity’S Physical And Metaphysical Constructs In The Works Of Jean Racine, John Hallmark 2018 Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois

A Comparative Analysis Of Order And Disorder: Captivity’S Physical And Metaphysical Constructs In The Works Of Jean Racine, John Hallmark

Celebration of Learning

This paper discusses a comparative analysis of order and disorder with respect to captivity in the works of French playwright Jean Racine. It is argued that a sense of physical captivity enables the characters to better separate the parts of their psyche and therefore, display a greater sense of order. However, when the characters are subject to metaphysical captivity, the ID takes over the mind and life becomes disordered. The role of space, language, and religion is also examined at length.


Comparing U.S. And French Approaches To Counterterrorism In Africa, Alexa Audino 2018 University of San Diego

Comparing U.S. And French Approaches To Counterterrorism In Africa, Alexa Audino

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Although terrorism is typically associated, in the U.S., with the Middle East, there is also a significant presence of terrorist groups in Africa. Both the United States and France are involved in counterterrorism in the Sahel region, where the two states often work together. However, the strategies of the U.S. and France in this region also frequently diverge. This project analyzes the differences in the strategies taken by France and the United States in counterterrorism interventions in the Sahel, specifically studying the ways in which these two countries are fighting Boko Haram, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb ...

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 ...

Development Of A Literary Dispositif: Convening Diasporan, Blues, And Cosmopolitan Lines Of Inquiry To Reveal The Cultural Dialogue Among Giuseppe Ungaretti, Langston Hughes, And Antonio D’Alfonso, Anna Ciamparella 2018 Louisiana State University

Development Of A Literary Dispositif: Convening Diasporan, Blues, And Cosmopolitan Lines Of Inquiry To Reveal The Cultural Dialogue Among Giuseppe Ungaretti, Langston Hughes, And Antonio D’Alfonso, Anna Ciamparella

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

This dissertation seeks to create a literary dialogue among the Italian poet Giuseppe Ungaretti, the African American author Langston Hughes, and the Quebecois writer Antonio D’Alfonso. Giuseppe Ungaretti and Langston Hughes were more or less contemporaries. Ungaretti was born in 1888 and Hughes in 1902, and both were active in modernist movements that shaped the literary history of their own countries. D’Alfonso was born in Canada about half a center after Ungaretti and Hughes. Besides significant generational differences, these three authors also underwent personal and intellectual experiences that shaped their writing in seemingly incomparable ways. While a traditional ...


Perceptions Concurrentes De La Liberté Chez Sartre Et Camus Dans Le Théâtre Existentialiste, Kendall Hall 2018 Trinity College, Hartford Connecticut

Perceptions Concurrentes De La Liberté Chez Sartre Et Camus Dans Le Théâtre Existentialiste, Kendall Hall

Senior Theses and Projects

This thesis compares two existential writers, Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus, and their perception of freedom through the medium of theatre. By comparing two plays written around the same time period, Caligula (1944) and Huis Clos (1944), and by examining aspects of theatre including the “mise en scène,” stage direction or action, and the voice of the actors, I show how their greatest point of contention is their definition of freedom and how they set up artificial situations (“situations-limites”) to articulate human freedom. Through a variety of supporting materials including theoretical texts by the two authors and secondary sources on ...


L’Étranger À Travers L’Arabe: Meursault Contre-Enquête De Kamel Daoud Comme Relecture Postcoloniale D’Albert Camus, Carlos Gonzalez 2018 Trinity College, Hartford Connecticut

L’Étranger À Travers L’Arabe: Meursault Contre-Enquête De Kamel Daoud Comme Relecture Postcoloniale D’Albert Camus, Carlos Gonzalez

Senior Theses and Projects

In this paper, I discuss the problem of naming and namelessness in Albert Camus’ The Stranger and in Kamel Daoud’s The Meursault Investigation as a way to explore postcolonial discourse surrounding names as a form of othering. In The Stranger, Camus chooses not to name the Arab that falls victim to Meursault, thereby setting into motion the narrative of The Meursault Investigation by Daoud, which acts as a retelling and response to Camus’ work. I argue that Camus’ decision not to name the victim, preferring instead to label him the Arab throughout the story, is a fundamentally orientalist act ...


Les Poe-Ètes Maudits: Baudelaire, Mallarmé, Et La Compétition Pour Le Legs De Poe, Emily Turner 2018 Trinity College, Hartford Connecticut

Les Poe-Ètes Maudits: Baudelaire, Mallarmé, Et La Compétition Pour Le Legs De Poe, Emily Turner

Senior Theses and Projects

In this essay, I examine two French translations of Edgar Allen Poe’s poem “The Raven”—the 1865 translation by Charles Baudelaire and the 1875 translation by Stéphane Mallarmé, which is accompanied by a series of illustrations by impressionist painter Édouard Manet. I argue that through their translations of “The Raven”, these two French poets enter into a competition not only with Poe, but also with each other. I find evidence of this competition in the translations themselves and also in the extra-textual content that supplements each translation. My argument is informed by secondary scholarship surrounding Poe, Baudelaire, and Mallarmé ...

Linguistic Feminism & The Body In 20th-Century French Feminist Texts, Lauren Hammett 2018 College of William and Mary

Linguistic Feminism & The Body In 20th-Century French Feminist Texts, Lauren Hammett

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This thesis examines the use of linguistic feminism and references to the body in 20th-century French feminist texts, and particularly in the work of Luce Irigaray. This involves an investigation into the nature of French feminism and the validity of the accusations of essentialism that have been leveled against it by many critics. The thesis argues for French feminists' place in feminist scholarship and for an anti-essentialist, more figurative reading of their discussions of the body, in addition to examining their discussions of language, including écriture féminine. Finally, the implications of French feminist ideology for feminism today, as well as ...
