CALL FOR PAPERS
Stirring the gumbo pot: French and Francophone Studies, Critical Approaches, and New Directions
Louisiana State University
Here in Louisiana, we know how to put different ingredients into the same pot and create something fresh and delicious. Sometimes too spicy, but never bland, the results, however, can be difficult to predict. We could say the same for the discipline of French and Francophone Studies. With a breadth of disparate critical approaches, French and Francophone studies resemble a Louisiana gumbo. French and Francophone Studies scholars thrive throughout North America and around the world. What are some new ingredients that keep French and Francophone scholars on the forefront of humanities? How can French and Francophone Graduate students spice up the discipline?
The Department of French Studies Graduate Association at Louisiana State University invites graduate students to submit proposals for 20-minute presentations (in English or French) addressing the status of French and Francophone Studies or any research in the field. We actively seek proposals for papers from all periods and aspects of French and Francophone studies (linguistics, literature, pedagogy, thought and the history of ideas, critical theory, cultural studies, film studies, etc.).
Please note that one selected paper (as determined by the organizing committee) will be published in the online journal mondesfrancophones.com, edited by Professor Alexandre Leupin: http://www.mondesfrancophones.com/
We are pleased to announce that Professor Peggy Kamuf will deliver the keynote address.
Please submit your abstract of no more than 250 words (in French or English) with title and contact information to lsuconf_at_yahoo.com by January 1st 2007.
