Franco-American Newspapers And Periodicals In The Northeast: An Inventory, Susan Pinette, Jacob Albert 2023 University of Maine

Franco-American Newspapers And Periodicals In The Northeast: An Inventory, Susan Pinette, Jacob Albert

Franco-American Centre Franco-Américain Faculty Scholarship

Franco-American newspapers and periodicals occupy an overlapping space between primary and secondary literature, and their shadow looms large over the collective body of historic Franco-American sources. Their significance to the Franco-American community is hard to overstate. These periodical publications complicate issues of identity in the U.S. Northeast and are an integral part of Québec history itself. This article details current work to inventory newspaper and periodical titles (currently over 400) and makes accessible our collectively built, evolving inventory of Franco-American newspapers. Les journaux et périodiques franco-américains occupent un espace entre la littérature primaire et la littérature secondaire, et leur ombre …

Decolonizing French: Afrophonics In Ken Bugul’S Aller Et Retour (2013), Hapsatou Wane 2023 Georgia Southern University

Decolonizing French: Afrophonics In Ken Bugul’S Aller Et Retour (2013), Hapsatou Wane

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

This article explores the innovative language strategies employed by Senegalese writer Ken Bugul in her novel Aller et retour to construct a dynamic and interconnected linguistic landscape that challenges fixed language boundaries. Ken Bugul's "langue fabriquée" combines elements of French, Wolof, and English, reflecting a transglocal dimension that embodies the essence of afrophonics—a poetics of resistance that empowers local cultures in a globalized context. Through a detailed analysis of Ken Bugul's linguistic choices, including the use of quotation marks, footnotes, and arbitrary transcription, the study reveals how she creates a language that defies categorization and decolonizes French without resorting to …


Figures Of Radical Absence: Blanks And Voids In Theory, Literature, And The Arts, Alexandra Irimia 2023 Western University

Semiotisation Of Émotion In No Et Moi By Delphine De Vigan : Explicit - Implicit, 2023 CHANGEME

Semiotisation Of Émotion In No Et Moi By Delphine De Vigan : Explicit - Implicit

Journal of the Faculty of Arts (JFA)

This research strives to semiotically analyse three basic emotions : anger, fear, sadness in No et moi by Delphine De Vigan. Indeed, in this nouvel, the emotionel meaning oscillantes between two modes : the explicit, which is clearly expressed and the implicit, which is indirectly expressed. For this reason, this oscillation between the explicit and the implicit is the objective of this work. Thus, on the one hand, we seek to elucidate the explicit vocabulaire of these three emotions within the framework of what we call the so - called or explicit emotion. On the other hand, we aim to …


Persuader Ou Manipuler Dans Le Discours Politique, 2023 CHANGEME

Persuader Ou Manipuler Dans Le Discours Politique

Journal of the Faculty of Arts (JFA)

Discourse analysis studies are among the most prominent and important contemporary studies. Where this field represents many of the strategies adopted by the speaker to reveal the linguistic practices and the various methods used to influence, persuade, and manipulate others. It is a social practice that allows the speaker to show many ideas and opinions in order to reach the real goal behind their speech, and the speaker tries to influence the recipient through some linguistic methods to grasp what lies behind the speech. Language in our social life is a tool for communication between individuals, but in political life, …


"Le Vierge, Le Vivace Et Le Bel Aujourd'hui": La Littérarité Est-Elle Dicible?, 2023 CHANGEME

"Le Vierge, Le Vivace Et Le Bel Aujourd'hui": La Littérarité Est-Elle Dicible?

Journal of the Faculty of Arts (JFA)

Cet article soulève la question de la possibilité de trouver des critères permettant de cerner la littérarité d’une œuvre, c’est-à-dire, selon la définition de Jakobson « ce qui fait d’une œuvre donnée une œuvre littéraire ». Ce travail démarre du postulat tout simple que l’œuvre littéraire est un ars, un artefact, ou une fabrication. Une distinction est ensuite faite entre le plaisir de la lecture et le plaisir esthétique. Plusieurs critères sont proposés, lesquels devraient constituer des pistes pour des recherches ultérieures. Le premier de ces critères est celui de la structure du texte littéraire en relation avec le concept …


Terminology: An Essential Component Of The Description Of The Media Event, 2023 CHANGEME

Terminology: An Essential Component Of The Description Of The Media Event

Journal of the Faculty of Arts (JFA)

The media are, nowadays, an essential vector in societies. They are considered as a sector of activity in terminology, since they touch a professional field involving both the specialists (here, the journalists) and the consumers, namely the recipients of the media content. This nature of the media requires the use of the phenomenon of vulgarization in order to ensure good professional communication. The present research will focus on the online press.Even though the press belongs to the common language, it uses very specific and technical terminology, as soon as it is a description of a specialized event requiring the use …


République Et Révolution(S) Dans Des Adaptations Cinématographiques Des Misérables De Victor Hugo, Fabrice Szabo 2023 Western University

République Et Révolution(S) Dans Des Adaptations Cinématographiques Des Misérables De Victor Hugo, Fabrice Szabo

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Cette thèse a pour objet de proposer l’analyse d’une série d’adaptations cinématographiques, choisies parmi les œuvres américaines et françaises du cinéma parlant, des Misérables de Victor Hugo. Au confluent des études de la réception et de la sociocritique, notre analyse repose sur l’idée que les adaptations sont à la fois des lectures et des réécritures, réactualisant les œuvres du passé, et que de ce fait, elles les enrichissent car elles en font rebondir le sens et les questionnements. Refusant ainsi le carcan du diptyque « fidélité/infidélité », notre analyse a pour ambition de montrer comment les choix d’adaptation nous renseignent …


Around The Originality Of The Dramatic Work Of Louis-Benoît Picard, Ahmad Al-Btoush 2023 Departement of European Languages, Mutah University, Al-Karak, Jordan.

Around The Originality Of The Dramatic Work Of Louis-Benoît Picard, Ahmad Al-Btoush

Association of Arab Universities Journal for Arts مجلة اتحاد الجامعات العربية للآداب

This article focuses on the problematic of the originality of the theatrical work of Louis-Benoît Picard (1769-1828). He repeatedly recognized that several sources of inspiration allowed the production of all his comedies to great success. The use of intertextuality as a methodological tool revealed in a text expose the relations of obvious or latent co-presence between several authors. This study clearly established that authors such as Molière, La Bruyère, Gresset, and Beaumarchais have had a major influence on the theatrical work of Picard. However, this is not without ignoring the influence of Picard himself on later literary productions. This intertextuality …


Memory, Violence, And Detours: Strategies Of Resistance To Epidermal Invisibility Within The French Republic, Claudine E. David 2023 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Memory, Violence, And Detours: Strategies Of Resistance To Epidermal Invisibility Within The French Republic, Claudine E. David

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The subjection of black citizens in France and their invisibility in the (post)colonial space has been marked by segregation in peripheral urban zones, with a hardening of policing methods and controls based on racial appearanc. I argue that monumental representation in public space is not neutral but participates in the promotion of a specific ideology. I show thé ellipses in French patrimonial monumental glorification, including the appropriation of the memory of revolutionary heroes such as Louis Delgrès and Toussaint Louverture, concomitant with the occultation of many other black figures. I argue that representation matters, that France must repair this asymmetrical …


Beirut On The Seine: Rebuilding Lebanese Identity After The Scourge Of War, Soumaya Al Jarrah 2023 Beirut Arab University, Sorbonne University

Beirut On The Seine: Rebuilding Lebanese Identity After The Scourge Of War, Soumaya Al Jarrah

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

The current situation of Lebanon is difficult. The country is sinking into a deep economic, financial, political, and social crisis, which has become worse since 2019 and especially after the explosion of the Beirut port in August 2020. As a result, several Lebanese decided to leave the country. This situation is partly a result of the civil war that took place between 1975 and 1990.

Indeed, the Lebanese war leaves an important mark on the literary works that have Lebanon as a setting. Authors express their desire to explore in their works the traumas, consequences and effect of these conflicts …


Writing As A Mean To Rehabilitate The Traumatized Self In Vivre Vite By Brigitte Giraud, Nadia Naboulsi Iskandarani 2023 Professor, French Department, Faculty of Human Sciences, Beirut Arab University, Beirut, Lebanon

Writing As A Mean To Rehabilitate The Traumatized Self In Vivre Vite By Brigitte Giraud, Nadia Naboulsi Iskandarani

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

In her novel Vivre vite, Brigitte Giraud writes the story of a disaster that obsesses her: on June 22, 1999; her companion Claude died in a motorcycle accident in Lyon. This vehicle, a powerful and dangerous Honda, was prohibited on Japanese territory and was reserved for export to Europe. It did not belong to Claude, but to the writer's brother. She was only able to return to the drama that inhabited her in 2022, that is to say twenty-three years after Claude's death. The reader cannot help but wonder about this long silence and why this return to the minutiae …
