Les Nouveaux Territoires De L’Istoriographie. Se Dessiner À Partir D’Une Faille., Alain Agnessan
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 ?, 2017 Université de Mascara, Algérie
La B.D Algérienne : Médium Sous Influences ?, Saad Eddine Fatmi
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 ...
Industrial Novels In Perspective Of Industrial Sociology: A Comparison Between Weimar Germany And Post-Wwii Italy, 2017 Radboud University Nijmegen
Industrial Novels In Perspective Of Industrial Sociology: A Comparison Between Weimar Germany And Post-Wwii Italy, Erik De Gier
Visiting Fellow Working Papers
[Excerpt] Since the English Industrial Revolution in the eighteenth century, almost up to the present century, the so-called industrial novel played a significant role in many industrializing and industrialized countries in making aware workers, politicians and policy makers, as well as the general public, of the lack of quality of working conditions in separate enterprises and/or sectors. Also, these novels contributed in a positive way to the emancipation of workers in society. Well-known examples are the famous industrial novels of the English Victorian writers Charles Dickens and Elizabeth Gaskell. But also in other countries the genre of the industrial ...
Bilingual And Bimodal Expression: The Creolization In Edwidge Danticat's Oeuvre, 2017 Dickinson College
Bilingual And Bimodal Expression: The Creolization In Edwidge Danticat's Oeuvre, Anna Robinette
Student Honors Theses By Year
Although scholars have identified and celebrated the multicultural nature of Edwidge Danticat’s fiction, little scholarship exists that examines the complexity and significance of her multilingual craft. In response, this paper provides examples of translation, theme, motif, and structure found across all of Danticat’s works that illuminate the ways in which Danticat’s use of language mirrors the créolité and creole identities in today’s global, post-colonial world. Using creolization theory as a lens for critical analysis, this essay investigates the ways in which Danticat blends English and Kreyòl, written and oral literary traditions to build a new genre ...

We also will schedule this film festival during our annual writers and artists gathering that we normally hold in Walpole but this year ...
"Ewondo In The Classes, French For The Masses." Mother-Tongue Education In Yaoundé, Cameroon., Parker Henry
Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection
Cameroon is home to over two hundred eighty native languages coming from three language families, making it one of the most linguistically diverse countries on Earth. Despite this, native languages hold very few domains in Cameroonian society. In recent years, several experimental programs have begun to implement native languages in schools citing that children learn best in their mother tongue. Among these include ELAN-Afrique, an initiative put forth by La Francophonie with the main aim of helping students better learn French by way of their mother tongue. This paper seeks to differentiate the benefits prescribed or expected by overhead actors ...

Guy Debord, Clairvoyant: Un Exposé De La Société Du Spectacle Au 21Ème Siècle, Amina Otto, Amina M. Otto
Undergraduate Honors Theses
In 1967 the leader of the French Situationist International movement, Guy Debord, published his book The Society of the Spectacle, a collection of 221 theses that elucidates and critiques the “spectacle,” which can be understood as a collection of inaccurate representations or images that distract from “real life.” The spectacle, in his terms, is a convoluted entity that was a product of modern capitalism and sought to prevent revolution and control the individual by estranging him from history and impeding him from leading an authentic life. This thesis examines the claims of Guy Debord in the context of our contemporary ...

Examining The Efficacy Of French Asylum Policies And Refugee Integration Effects, Roberto Cordero
Honors in the Major Theses
This Thesis investigates the French asylum seeker legal framework and refugee integration effects based on evidence in government data, non-governmental organizations, and external sources. Specifically, the policies of the protected rights of asylum seekers from history to modern day in relation to its efficiency and respect to human rights. Despite the development of past models through reforms, some shortcomings and discrepancies still exist that adversely affect asylum rights and responsibility sharing among EU nations. A potential system that benefits the applicant in addition to the host country is possible by implementing a model that takes into consideration asylum preferences, socioeconomics ...
Robert Parker’S Wine Advocate And The Consequential Pricing Of Provençal Wines, 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 ...
Pyramide: The Changing Power Structure Of Fashion, 2017 Scripps College
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.
Images Of Sexually Deviant Women In French Film, 2016 Chapman University
Images Of Sexually Deviant Women In French Film, Lara Fox
Student Research Day Abstracts and Posters
This research explores representations of sexually deviant women in French film beginning with the New Wave film movement of the1960s and continuing to present day. This work examines the extent to which the gender of a film’s director affects the presentation of female nudity, infidelity, homosexuality, BDSM, and pornography onscreen. Through the lens of scholarly articles of film theorists and feminists such as Laura Mulvey, Simone de Beauvoir, and Hélène Cixous; and of both feministic and anti-feministic works of famous French directors such as Jean-Luc Godard, Catherine Breillat, and Emmanuelle Bercot, this capstone work identifies filmic triumphs and failures ...
In Contradiction With Culture: A Study Of French Vegetarians, 2016 Chapman University
In Contradiction With Culture: A Study Of French Vegetarians, Robert Schumaker
Student Research Day Abstracts and Posters
This paper examines the relationship between modern French vegetarians and the vast French culinary tradition. Historically composed of meat, dairy, and animal by-products, French cuisine is at odds with a growing trend to become vegetarian or vegan, a movement which embraces greener and more compassionate ethics. The research is divided into three sections: animal rights, ecology, and personal health, these being the most popular reasons one adopts a vegetarian or vegan diet. In each category, the French tradition is contrasted with the behaviors and thoughts of French vegans or vegetarians. The purpose of this project is to highlight how French ...
French Women In Art: Reclaiming The Body Through Creation/Les Femmes Artistes Françaises : La Réclamation Du Corps À Travers La Création, Liatris Hethcoat
Student Research Day Abstracts and Posters
The research I have conducted for my French Major Senior Thesis is a culmination of my passion for and studies of both French language and culture and the history and practice of Visual Arts. I have examined, across the history of art, the representation of women, and concluded that until the 20th century, these representations have been tools employed by the makers of history and those at the top of the patriarchal system, used to control women’s images and thus women themselves. I survey these representations, which are largely created by men—until the 20th century. I ...
Staging Famine Irish Memories Of Migration And National Performance In Ireland And Québec, 2016 National University of Ireland Galway
Staging Famine Irish Memories Of Migration And National Performance In Ireland And Québec, Jason King
CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture
In "Staging Famine Irish Memories of Migration and National Performance in Ireland and Québec" Jason King examines recent community theater productions about the Irish Famine migration to Québec in 1847. King explores community-based and national ideas of performance and the role of remembrance in shaping and transmitting the diasporic identities of Québec's Irish cultural minority. While most of the plays re-enact French-Canadian adoptions of Famine orphans as spectacles of Irish integration in Québec, David Fennario's Joe Beef: (A History of Pointe Saint Charles) (1984, published 1991) rehearses the history of the Canadian/Québec nation in terms of recurrent ...
Literary And Theatrical Circulations In The Democratic Republic Of Congo, Rwanda And Burundi, From The Belgian Colonial Empire To The Africa Of The Great Lakes., Maëline Le Lay
This article on literary and theatrical circulations in Africa’s Great Lakes region begins by retracing the history of these practices, taking several examples from the colonial period. It then analyzes contemporary modalities of the circulation of texts (via procedures such as reprising narrative patterns and adaptation), and cultural actors, in the different transnational arts networks that are more or less closely tied to the humanitarian sector, or to international cooperation. Finally, it proposes a critical questioning of the concept of artistic circulation.
Regimes Of Prestige And Power: Transnational Authorship And International Acclaim In Rutu Modan's Exit Wounds, 2016 University of Kentucky
Regimes Of Prestige And Power: Transnational Authorship And International Acclaim In Rutu Modan's Exit Wounds, Kyle Eveleth
disClosure: A Journal of Social Theory
This essay will examine the reception of Rutu Modan’s international-award-winning graphic novel Exit Wounds (2007) in the massive cultural centers of the United States and France by situating its success within the inter/transnational dynamics of the contemporary comics market, or what James English would term an “economy of prestige.” My essay reconsiders Exit Wounds beyond its popular status as an international phenomenon—that is, one that crosses national borders but which maintains distinctions between those nations it enters and its home state—by considering it a transnational work—one which blurs the lines between nation-states in its form ...

Life At The Meridian: The Subjectivity Of Ethics In The Works Of Albert Camus And Friedrich Nietzsche, 2016 Pepperdine University
Life At The Meridian: The Subjectivity Of Ethics In The Works Of Albert Camus And Friedrich Nietzsche, Clancy E. Robledo
Seaver College Research And Scholarly Achievement Symposium
This paper endeavors to respond to the questions: can ethics can be unbound from its traditional rootedness in religious systems? If so, what contributions did Nietzsche make to liberate value from the shackles of Western morality? To what degree is Camus one of the “new philosophers” Nietzsche calls for in On the Genealogy of Morals?
In an attempt to demonstrate that ethics can and do exist vividly in the realm of the non-religious, this paper will begin by illustrating the metaphysical door Nietzsche opens through his use of aphorisms in Thus Spoke Zarathustra and his investigation of the history of ...
