Space, Place and Time in French and Francophone Women’s Writing

 

Political events abroad and local are frequently framed around issues of place and, arguably, space. For example, questions of immigration seemingly involve not only these but the notion of time. This session proposes to investigate space, place, and time, and how these concepts play out in women’s narrative (texts or films). In what ways do women’s narratives create new understandings of space, place and time? In what ways might these spaces and places be gendered? And, in what way are they an experience of othering? Does women’s experience create a new space, place, or concept of time, and if so, in what ways? Please send a 250-word abstract in English or French to E. Nicole Meyer, nimeyer@augusta.edu by 15 May 2018 along with presenter’s academic affiliation, contact information, and A/V requirements.
