Panelists for invited panel on Antoine Volodine

updated: 
Thursday, July 15, 2021 - 11:54am
20th & 21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, August 15, 2021

This is a call for panelists on an invited panel.

The topic of the panel is Antoine Volodine, and the theme is “the medium is the message.”

Below is a draft of the panel proposal.

The fiction of Antoine Volodine often depicts media traveling across networks and communities. Messages are destroyed after being disseminated, a la Snapchat. The low character counts of the narrats call to mind the brevity of Twitter posts. How does the literature of Volodine, across five decades (the 1980s through the 2020s), depict the rise of new media technologies? What does the treatment of media technologies in the novels of Volodine say about the current era of silos, polarizations, suspicion, censorship, and propaganda?

Proceeding from the beginning to the end of time, occurring in a ritual space, and focusing on moments of extraordinary joy, suffering, humor, and election, medieval drama maps worlds of vulnerability and interconnectedness.  Its scope has continued to inspire re-enactment and adaptation from Passion Plays and the Mormon Hill Cumorah pageants to Yiimimangaliso, a South African version of the Chester mystery plays stressing truth and reconciliation, and Brandon Jacob-Jenkins’ reworking of the medieval morality play Everyman as Everybody.

We envision this seminar as an opportunity to further reflect on the changes in pedagogy and performance praxis that have germinated from the changes brought about by the global health crisis and social justice movements. As Shakespeareans working across the disciplinary lines of literary and theatre pedagogy and performance, we invite colleagues to present papers critically discussing the experience of reading, teaching, performing, and appreciating Shakespeare in text and in performance.

Decolonising the Panel; Deconstructing the Gutter: Two-day Virtual International Conference on Postcolonial Studies in Comics and Graphic Narratives from South Asia

Practice of comics and the academic history of comics studies are often found Eurocentric. Readers often favour the traditional comics, either American or Franco-Belgian or Japanese Manga. They find the aesthetic flavour in them and most of the unorthodox graphic storytelling are left out. With Charles Hatfield’s Alternative Comics (2005), comics studies include the “other” voices and thereby the untold stories and unforeseen graphic patterns of the colonised and indigenous people are celebrated. The affiliation of comics studies with Auto/biography studies, Feminism, postcolonialism, postmodernism opens an arena for the readers/researchers of comics and graphic narratives to develop a new field of studies.
