Le Journaliste/Ecrivain : Reporter Ou Reformateur ? L’Exemple De Franchir La Mer De Wolfgang Bauer, Hasna Bouharfouche

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

Suite à l’essor industriel et technologique, le monde devient la scène de plusieurs crises environnementales, sociales et humanitaires en parallèle avec la course aux armements. Les répercussions de ces crises se traduisent entre autres par des changements démographiques dramatiques dans certaines zones du monde, notamment au Moyen-Orient (la Palestine, l’Iraq et la Syrie à titre d’exemple. Le Liban auparavant durant la guerre civile), à cause des déplacements forcés et des nombres des émigrés. Ces déplacements attirent les médias du monde qui tentent de par leur « responsabilité sociale » de parler et de comprendre ce genre de crise, et ...

For The Dead: Witnessing Images Of Violence In Jonathan Littell's Une Vieille Histoire: Nouvelle Version, Orit Yushinsky Troupin

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

This article deals with representing violence and witnessing in Jonathan Littell's novel Une Vieille Histoire: Nouvelle Version. First, I show how by means of renouncing mimetic representation, Littell "weaves" a reality of violence and excessive sensations into a text and creates disturbing abstract-corporeal images that stimulate readers' attention to contemporary prevailing violence in our societies. I then claim that narrators in the novel, in their role as abusers, victims, or witnesses, become fascinated with images of violence that stupefy them, turning them into blinded witnesses who cannot testify on ungraspable and impenetrable images of violence. As witnesses, narrators become ...


In The Wake Of Medea: Neoclassical Theater And The Arts Of Destruction [Table Of Contents], Juliette Cherbuliez 2020 Fordham University

In The Wake Of Medea: Neoclassical Theater And The Arts Of Destruction [Table Of Contents], Juliette Cherbuliez

Literature

In the Wake of Medea examines the violence of seventeenth-century French political dramas. French tragedy usually appears as a passionless, cerebral genre that refused all forms of violence. In the Wake explores the rhetorical, literary, and performance strategies through which violence persisted. The mythological figure of Medea, foreigner who massacres her brother, murders kings, burns down Corinth, and kills her own children, can serve as a paradigm for this violence. Paradigmatic also of the refugee who is welcomed yet feared, who confirms our concept of the social while threatening its integrity, Medea’s presence is this book’s organizing principle ...

Borderless Flows In Federspiel’S Die Ballade Von Der Typhoid Mary, Charlotte Melin 2020 University of Minnesota - Twin Cities

Borderless Flows In Federspiel’S Die Ballade Von Der Typhoid Mary, Charlotte Melin

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Jürg Federspiel’s novel Die Ballade von der Typhoid Mary (1982) offers a fictionalized account of the notorious heroine’s life that ultimately sympathizes with her plight as an immigrant who faced exclusionary cultural barriers. Drawing on Rob Nixon’s concept of “slow violence” and recent approaches developed by material ecocriticism theory, my essay reinterprets this work from an environmental humanities perspective. The interpretation focuses on the interconnection of discourses related to disease, food, and pollution flows. Exploration of these themes leads to the conclusion that Federspiel’s work was prescient in its parallel engagement with both immigration issues and ...

Études Françaises, Hervé, Martin Et Alexis Lussier (Dir.). Le Regard Et La Proie, Michèle A. Schaal

World Languages and Cultures Publications

Dans ce numéro d’Études françaises, les éditeurs nous offrent un riche panorama autour du thème « le regard et de la proie ». Un aspect particulier se dégage de cette considération : la chasse tant réelle qu’allégorique. Pourtant, à la manière de Magritte, les éditeurs soulignent, dans leur introduction, que ceci n’est guère un dossier spécial sur la chasse. Il s’agit plutôt de souligner comment l’imaginaire cynégétique participe du regard car qui dit regarder dit forcément traquer. Cette approche thématique soulève alors les questions du désir, de son objet ou sujet, de la quête qu’il engendre et ...
