[UPDATE] Memory and Forgetting in the French Renaissance

updated: 
Thursday, October 28, 2010 - 1:42pm
Kentucky Foreign Language Conference (April 14-16, 2011)

Many have remarked at the tendency of French Renaissance literature to commemorate past experience. Modern thought tends in the opposite direction, relegating prior experience to oblivion. Sixteenth-century French literature attempts to reconcile the two divergent tendencies, and perhaps for that reason has been dubbed the "early modern" period. Furthermore, the early modern treatment of memory and forgetfulness are determined by various theories from mythology to Christian ideology to medieval humeral philosophy. Through such theories the two are either diametrically opposed or inextricably intertwined and memory becomes aligned with morality and the soul whereas forgetting is associated with morality depravity and the body.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Newman University English Department presents:

11th annual Literary Festival & Scholars Day
"The Well-Spread Fable: Food and Its Meanings"

Conference Description: Food is something we all think about every day—sometimes as scholars, and certainly as eaters. How have cultures been shaped by food production? How has food been used symbolically? What does it mean to eat? These and other questions will guide our discussions of the many meanings of food. Although the theme of the literary festival is "food," the Scholars Day in which it is set encompasses submissions of work on any topic and in any format. Essays, poster presentations, and artwork from all disciplines are welcome and encouraged.
