NEMLA 2018 - Pittsburg April 12-15, 2018

In order to prepare globally-competent students with social responsibility and an understanding of current events, classroom content shifts toward communication, collaboration, and problem solving across cultural, racial, and linguistic boundaries. As these 21st century skills and aptitudes gain importance in a curriculum or course, where does this leave room for the more traditional francophone literature, language and even culture courses?

Movement as Immobility - A Conference on Film and Christianity

Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:52pm
Centre for Comparative Studies - University of Lisbon
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2017

In Simone Weil’s “First and Last Notebooks” we find a note that describes the sea as “a movement within immobility,” the “Image of primal matter”, which leads this Christian philosopher to see music also as a movement that “takes possession of all our soul—and this movement is nothing but immobility”. Perhaps this is an even more fitting description of film, with its images in motion. Its movements can reconnect us with the movements of the world, those motions in which a mysterious sense of order, what Weil calls immobility, arises.

ReFocus: The Films of Ousmane Sembène

Senegalese Ousmane Sembène was one of the most important African artists of the 20th century as a writer and a film director. Yet there are only a handful of studies on his cinematic body of work. They usually adopt the same structure: the analysis of his films in chronological order. This essay collection tackles his work and legacy in a deeper way. Sembène articulated his observations in fiction films instead of documentaries, embracing the African tradition of telling and transmitting stories that creatively reflect the circumstances of a people. His films have strengthened the cause of liberation from colonial domination and other forms of oppression.
