Complicated French and Francophone Women


This panel welcomes papers focused on the exploration of the ways in which French and Francophone women’s writing, film, and other art forms initiate, navigate, and complicate notions of distance and network.  How do these women create new understandings of social order and contest inequities?  Examinations of the liminal spaces between tradition and new order and the ways in which these texts challenge perceptions of identity, privilege, nationality, class, race, sex, gender, and language are particularly welcome. Papers may be in French or English and may not exceed 20 minutes.  Please send a 250-word abstract, brief bio and A/V requests to Susan Crampton-Frenchik, scramptonfrenchik@washjeff.edu, by June 30, 2021.
