On the Aesthetic Legacy of Ishmael Reed:
Contemporary Reassessments

Under this working title, Paul Tayyar (Golden West, California) and Sämi Ludwig (UHA Mulhouse, France) want to collect the views of young scholars and artists who represent yet another generation cherishing Ishmael Reed's work. After a furious start in the 1960s, Reed found a place in the contemporary African-American canon in the 1970s when some major criticism appeared on his writing. In the 1980s interest in him slackened--although we know that many young scholars in particular love his stories, his poems, and his essays.

«Intrangers»: les écrivains beurs des origines à nos jours (session du 41e Congrès de NeMLA - 7-11 avril 2010 - Montréal)

L'immigration maghrébine en France a conduit, dès les années 80, à la naissance d'une nouvelle littérature, faite par les enfants des immigrés. Issus de France et d'ailleurs, ces «intrangers» – d'après la précieuse définition de l'écrivain Y.B. – sont pourtant difficiles à classer sans les stigmatiser. De la «littérature beure» à la «littérature urbaine», les étiquettes se sont succédé au fil des années. Mais comment a changé cette littérature, au-delà des définitions? Quelles sont les différences qui marquent le passage des romans des initiateurs, dont ceux d'Azouz Begag, à ceux des auteurs plus récents, comme Faïza Guène?
