Writing Space or the Space of Writing: the (non-)lieux of Francophone literatures

In Écrire l’espace, Marie-Claire Ropars-Wuilleumier wrote that “la notion d’espace littéraire implique une double équation, suivant laquelle la littérature, en son désœuvrement, relève de l’espace, en même temps que l’œuvre littéraire, de par la singularité de son écriture, devient apte à engendrer ce en quoi elle s’inscrit.” Fragmentary in its composition, the spatial metaphor of writing implies a certain ontological paradox: being engendered by the author’s enunciation, the text is at once situated within the spatial imaginary while tandemly being the cause of spatial genesis.

The Language of the Visual and Twentieth-Century Transatlantic Vanguardisms

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 31, 2019

This panel explores the power of image culture in shaping the visual identity of twentieth-century transatlantic vanguardisms. Since the inception of European experimentalism during the first decades of the twentieth century, a series of art movements engaged in radical art production that defied conventions. From the Cubist adoption of multiple viewpoints, through the Futurist celebration of technology and speed, the Expressionist distortion of form, to the Dadaist sense of provocation and the irrational juxtaposition of images in Surrealism, visual art has set precedents for literature on an international level of exchanges.
