"Productive" Silences
History and the history-making process, while seeking to remember, often call attention to singularity of perspective, which results in silencing the memories of survivors. Literature then steps in to fill the gaps or
the lacuna of silence. In this imaginative, fictional realm, silence and those silenced by historians, dictators, and forgetfulness find agency. Understood as a form of resistance, silence becomes a literary ruse: a voice or a perspective that once lacked agency now finds a place on the page.

I am particularly interested in papers that examine extended metaphors for and various tropes of silence in twentieth and twenty-first century fiction, plays, and poetry.

Law and Order : 37th Annual Nineteenth-Century French Studies Colloquium

Saturday, January 8, 2011 - 4:45pm
Nineteenth-Century French Studies

The 37th Annual Nineteenth-Century French Studies Colloquium hopes to foster a discussion of laws and order as represented in French literature and culture of the long century: how they were established, supported, questioned, and overthrown; how the ideological grounds upon which they were constructed were solidified or destabilized; and how authors, characters, themes or formal elements reflect varying degrees of respect for established sets of rules.

The colloquium will take place October 27-29, 2011 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Comic and violence: "Doppelgänger" // doubles

Comic and Violence: Doppelgänger
The forthcoming volume of the book series "Comic and Violence" will be dedicated to the subject of doubles and "doppelgänger" as appearing in literary fiction, movies, art, and psychoanalytic studies. The links between comical effects and aspects of violence will be examined on the base of the motif of the double. We welcome proposals for papers on any aspect of this relationship between comic, humor, and violence in a broader sense (from bodily violence to symbolical violence).
