Eco-anxiety and Spirituality in Literature Workshop

As the climate crisis accelerates, one response that contemporary authors take amidst the growing feelings of eco-anxiety is to narrate themes of religion and spirituality as a source of solace. Though there is no doubt that the theologies and practices of western patriarchal religions have created systems of harm and contributed to the climate crisis (Lynn White Jr), contemporary authors are reclaiming the spiritual practices and mystic traditions of such religions in order to imagine narratives in which restorative relationships between the human and the more-than-human world are negotiated. Scholars such as Benedicte Meillon have begun to explore how the ecopoetics of re-enchantment can help us understand (non)human nature cultures.

Resilience, production littéraire et psychanalyse, l’écriture maniaque ?

Friday, September 30, 2022

D’un point de vue psychanalytique, du moins francophone, la notion de resilience connait des destins contrastés entre son succès médiatique d’une part et les précautions prises par les universitaires pour son usage, d’autre part. Elle peut prêter à interprétations tant le spectre d’acceptions de cette notion est large. En effet, resilience peut tout aussi bien référer à l’idéalisation du rebond narcissique à contre-coup, à l’exaltation de la cicatrice mémorielle, comme aux effets psychiques après-coup du travail - passif - du deuil.

17th International Connotations Symposium: “And this gives life to thee” - Textual Reasons for Canonicity

Connotations: Society for Critical Debate
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 30, 2022

Recent debates on canonicity have focused on how canons are a product of social and historical conditions as well as of reception. Texts become canonical when they are felt to embody the spirit of an age or to voice concerns considered universal at a particular moment. But what about the texts themselves? Can any text become canonical in any way? Or are there any specific textual reasons for such an elevated status? This latter question is what our symposium wishes to address.

Primary Area / Secondary Area:French and Francophone Chair(s): Rhita Iraqi (Université Hassan II-Casablanca, Maroc)  Abstract:

Les rapports sociaux ont souvent été définis par des rapports de domination qui instaurent une hiérarchie entre les femmes et les hommes avec un pouvoir d’autorité accordé à ces derniers. Cette domination masculine se reflète, au sein de la société, à travers la répartition des rôles entre les deux sexes, la présence dans l'espace public et les prérogatives accordées aux hommes.
