A Graduate Conference in French and Francophone Studies

Hosted by the Yale French Department

Keynote Speaker: Madeleine Dobie (Columbia University)

 

“La révolution littéraire et la révolution politique ont fait en moi leur jonction.” (Victor Hugo, in Tas de pierres, n.d.)

 

We speak of revolutions in many different registers, from political to literary. What does it mean for a movement to coalesce under the label of “revolution?” What makes a change “revolutionary?”

CFP - Myth and Fairy Tales

updated: 
Monday, October 16, 2017 - 12:34pm
SWPACA (Southwest Popular and American Culture Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 22, 2017

All scholars working in the areas of myth and/or fairy tales are invited to submit paper or panel proposals for the upcoming SWPACA Conference. Panels are now forming on topics related to all aspects of myths and fairy tales and their connections to popular culture. To participate in this area, you do not need to present on both myths and fairy tales; one or the other is perfectly fine. Presentations considering both genres are of course welcome and can stimulate interesting discussions. Proposals for forming your own Myth or Fairy Tale-focused panel – especially panels focused on one particular myth/tale – are encouraged.

Paper topics might include (but are certainly not limited to):

CFP for Special Issue of Journal of Narrative Theory: "Refugee Literatures: Migration, Crisis, and the Humanities"

updated: 
Friday, October 13, 2017 - 12:28pm
JNT: Journal of Narrative Theory
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 1, 2018

JNT: Journal of Narrative Theory invites submissions exploring the life and work of refugees as they engage the humanities today. Just as the mid-twentieth century refugee crisis shaped the emergence and development of aesthetic and theoretical movements around World War II, the mass movement of displaced peoples today stems from a convergence of forces concomitantly reshaping art and humanistic thought, from economic globalization to climate change, neoliberalism, neoimperialism, resurgent nationalisms, violence against black, latinx, Muslim, and queer peoples, and the waning securities of sovereignty and citizenship.

Beckett in International Culture and Politics

updated: 
Friday, October 13, 2017 - 12:28pm
Samuel Beckett Today/ Aujourd'hui
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 6, 2017

Samuel Beckett Today/Aujourd’hui solicits proposals for articles in French or English on Beckett’s global and political reach. More than the question of Beckett’s international influence, we ask scholars to consider how Beckett’s work provides aesthetic models for artists seeking to address political conflict, to break the straightjacket of imposed artistic forms, or to represent forms of human violence. Does Beckett’s work help or hinder artists in formulating a political aesthetic or navigating specific political demands and situations? Does Beckett’s work inform conceptions of committed art?
