Francophonies: The Living and the Dead

March 18-19th 2011

Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA

The 2011 Graduate Student Conference, hosted by the Department of French
Studies at Louisiana State University, will explore the concepts of life, death, and afterlife in French and Francophone literature as well as how these ideas apply to the French language, itself. How do the motifs of passing away or coming into being function in French and Francophone narratives? What can we say about the trajectory of French as a living or dying language? (What deaths has it suffered? How is it being reborn?) What evidence can we see of French afterlives (linguistic or cultural) in territories, departments, and former colonies?

The English Graduate Student Association (EGSA) at Oklahoma State University, an organization of English graduate students and faculty members committed to promoting student academic development and scholastic achievement, is currently accepting proposals for its annual graduate conference. The theme of this year's conference is "Transforming Words." In his 1969 work, The Way to Rainy Mountain, N. Scott Momaday asserts, "We have all been changed by words; we have been hurt, delighted, puzzled, filled with wonder." During the conference, we would like to explore the practical ways language functions to effect change. How can language overcome supposed barriers of race and gender?

The Fifth International Conference of the Taiwan Association of Classical, Medieval and Renaissance Studies Ludi Civitatis: the Church, the Court, and the Citizens
'Civilization arises and unfolds in and as play' (Johan Huizinga, Homo Ludens). In civic entertainment, 'play' constitutes the primary formative element in human culture that affords and sustains common interest and amusement. Texts produced in the classical, medieval and the Renaissance periods document how the Church, the Court, and the citizens devise their 'play' in triumphal entries, court entertainment, civic festivals, religious rituals, processions, drama, music and dance.

The act of the journey ("to go from home to a distance") and migration signify the basic need of humanity to explore and in all cultures memories of the journey in its various forms represent important aspects of society, history, and culture in all of its aspects and dimensions. Records of travel, exile and return, and (im)migration and their perception are elements of culture including aspects of ideological, personal and/or group formation, artistic and/or historical representation, and the social imagery. Travel and the journey represent the basic human characteristic of curiosity and patterns of migration involve social, political, and cultural tensions emanating from basic needs of cultural, economic, political, etc., existence.

The Crisis of the Confined Body is a graduate student conference that will join five Romance languages (Catalan, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish), fostering a comparative approach to studies of the body in confinement, isolation and extraction. The conference will offer critical examinations of the body and its contingent relationship to spatial, temporal, cultural and/or linguistic parameters. A theme that lends itself to multiple fields, The Crisis of the Confined Body will promote interdisciplinary collaborations between the humanities, visual arts, and sciences, engaging points of overlap as well as lines of divergence. We encourage presentations that engage a comparative and/or interdisciplinary approach.

Dalhousie French Studies

From the revolutionaries of Gillo Pontecorvo's The Battle of Algiers, the heroines in films by directors such as Nadir Moknèche, Raja Amari and Laïla Marrakchi, to the feminist voices of Hélé Béji's and Gisèle Halimi's texts or the incisive critique of phallocentric discourse of Fatima Mernissi's essays, women from the Maghreb have and continue to be associated with the hopes of modernity, freedom, and democracy. In the 21st century, they have emerged as important players in the socio-political and cultural transformations that have taken place since independence from France.
