Revolution/Révolution

 

A Graduate Conference in French and Francophone Studies

Hosted by the Yale French Department

April 6-7 2018

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?”

We are not only “the last men of an epoch” (…): we are more than that, or we are that in a different way to what is most often asserted. We are the first men of a future that has not materialized. We belong to a “great age” that has not “come off.”

(Wyndham Lewis, Blasting and Bombardiering, 1937)

Shirley Jackson's Domesticity

updated: 
Monday, October 16, 2017 - 12:42pm
American Literature Assoc./Shirley Jackson Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 31, 2017

Shirley Jackson wrote about about haunted houses, dysfunctional families, wayward children, attempts at maintaining a sane work-life balance, as well as restricted, doomed women in a period when Americans were constantly reminded of their civic duties to manage and maintain clean, comfortable, ‘normal’ domestic spaces. But as evidenced by letters from her fans, Shirley Jackson’s approach to domesticity opened up the possibility for something different, something more for women who felt trapped by their home lives.

This panel seeks work that addresses any aspect of Jackson’s domesticity in her fiction or nonfiction for the May 2018 ALA Conference in San Francisco.

E. M. Forster: Nature, Culture, Queer!

updated: 
Monday, October 16, 2017 - 12:40pm
Dr Heiko Zimmermann, University of Education Ludwigsburg

Friday, December 1, 2017

The œuvre of E. M. Forster is undoubtedly based on contrast: nature vs. culture, nature vs. queer, and/or culture vs. queer. However, there seems to be many instances when the oppositions dissolve in the triad of nature, culture and queerness. Nature sometimes functions as a connection between culture and life, and the life tends to be quite specific, queer. Sometimes still it is queerness (of the sex or of the mind) that links nature with culture. In turn, culture may be responsible for bringing nature and queerness together. The proposed conference shall shed more light on the relation of the triad nature, culture, and queerness in relation to the life and works of E. M. Forster.

SIZE: SCALE AND PROPORTION

updated: 
Monday, October 16, 2017 - 12:38pm
University of Belgrade - Faculty of Architecture
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 25, 2018

Scale and proportion in art and architecture are both concerned with size: while scale refers to the size of an object in relationship to another object, proportion refers to the relative size of parts of a whole. Throughout history of art, many artworks represent what was considered as an ideal based on the ancient classical Greek model and therefore serve as an illustration of both scale and proportion in art.

Here, we are interested in how scale and proportion function today in art and architecture, therefore we invite you to submit papers to bring scale and scaling into view. What ideals and/or ideology do they represent, how measurement scales are built and what are these, what are the relationships between materiality and size?
