Cette session qui aura lieu au prochain congrès du MLA à Seattle (3 au 6 janvier 2012) sera consacrée aux représentations contemporaines des femmes face à la loi au cinéma, en littérature et à la télévision. Plus précisément, on cherchera à penser la structure juridique et narrative du procès en tant que mise à mal d'une parole féminine qui ferait trembler la loi patriarcale. Comment revisiter la parole des femmes en procès à l'aune des réformes juridiques mises en œuvre tout au long de la seconde moitié du vingtième siècle ? Peut-on redéfinir le procès en tant que système culturel généralisé où les femmes opposent au discours de la Loi de nouvelles formes de « vivre ensemble » ?

In his "Theses on the Philosophy of History," Walter Benjamin famously reads the Paul Klee painting Angelus Novus, not as a "New Angel" in keeping with the original title of this watercolor, but as an "Angel of History." Benjamin describes the angel as flying backwards (and thus looking at the past) toward the future, blown by a huge storm. This storm, Benjamin says, is what we call progress.
