Space and Place in French and Francophone Women’s Writing

 

Recent political events abroad and local are frequently framed around issues of place and, arguably, space. This session proposes to investigate space and place, and how these concepts play out in women’s narrative (texts or films). In what ways do women’s narratives create new understandings of space and place? In what ways might these spaces and places be gendered? And, in what way are they an experience of othering? Does women’s experience create a new space and place, and if so, in what ways? Please send a 250 word abstract in English or French to E. Nicole Meyer,nimeyer@augusta.edu by 1 June 2017 along with presenter’s academic affiliation, contact information, and A/V requirements.
