Alternate Facts And Reality Effects In Antoine Bello’S Roman Américain, Jennifer Willging 2018 The Ohio State University

Alternate Facts And Reality Effects In Antoine Bello’S Roman Américain, Jennifer Willging

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Like several of Antoine Bello’s eight other novels to date, Roman américain contains a staggering array of minute details, which includes the names of dozens of fictional characters, businesses, associations, institutions, locations, and publications. These fictional proper nouns are intertwined throughout the novel with dozens of real ones, and this promiscuous intermixing contributes to the careful construction of a fictional world that rivals the real one in all its complexity. In this essay I examine Bello’s masterful production in Roman américain of verisimilitude, which he creates largely but not exclusively though his exploitation of the documentary fiction genre ...

by

Yannel M. Celestrin

Florida International University, 2018

Miami, Florida

Professor Martha Schoolman, Major Professor

Through a post-structural lens, I will focus on the Caribbean, specifically Cuba, Guadeloupe, Marie-Galante, and Roseau, and how the history of colonialism impacted these islands. As the primary text of my thesis begins during the Cuban War of Independence of the 1890s, I will use this timeframe as the starting point of my analysis. In my thesis, I will compare Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heightsand Maryse Condé’s Windward Heights ...

The Ethics Of Citation In Patrick Modiano’S Dora Bruder And Georges Perec’S W Ou Le Souvenir D’Enfance, Roderick Cooke 2018 Florida Atlantic University

The Ethics Of Citation In Patrick Modiano’S Dora Bruder And Georges Perec’S W Ou Le Souvenir D’Enfance, Roderick Cooke

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

This article compares the representations of the Holocaust in Georges Perec’s W ou le souvenir d’enfance (W or the Memory of Childhood) and Patrick Modiano’s Dora Bruder. I concentrate on the two authors’ use of citation, in both cases of texts written by victims of the deportations, and identify a respective ethics of citation in each work by drawing on Antoine Compagnon’s theory. Modiano’s is best characterized through the term ‘responsibility,’ a responsibility he urges the reader to share with him in memorializing the wartime past. In the case of Perec, ‘resonance’ describes the manner ...


Experimental Writing, Experimental Reading, Warren Motte 2018 University of Colorado Boulder

Experimental Writing, Experimental Reading, Warren Motte

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

The notion of "experimental writing" is difficult to define with any kind of precision. Most of the time it is invoked in a largely offhanded manner, as if its meaning were immediately clear to everyone, obviating the need for further discussion. That assumption is a matter of expediency rather than anything else, for even a cursory glance at the way people use the term quickly reveals that the way we understand it varies considerably, changing over both time and cultural space. This essay seeks to examine how the idea of the experimental expresses itself in the tradition of the twentieth-century ...

Jack Kerouac’S French, American, And Quebecois Receptions: From Deterritorialization To Reterritorialization, Susan Pinette 2018 University of Maine

Jack Kerouac’S French, American, And Quebecois Receptions: From Deterritorialization To Reterritorialization, Susan Pinette

Franco-American Centre Franco-Américain Faculty Scholarship

Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, the most famous French readers of Jack Kerouac, used his works to theorize their key concept of deterritorialization. Québécois readers, on the other hand, pursued the reterritorialization of Kerouac by reframing his writing as embodying the linguistic and cultural tensions experienced by the French Canadian diaspora. While both of these Francophone readings capture important aspects of Kerouac’s oeuvre, this article argues that critics interested in the complexity of Kerouac’s linguistic and cultural identity as a writer would benefit from following Deleuze and Guattari’s rationale to the end, by recognizing the moments of ...


The Creation Of Power: Leaving The Closed Space Of Voluntary Servitude, Isabel Mae Torgove 2018 Bard College

The Creation Of Power: Leaving The Closed Space Of Voluntary Servitude, Isabel Mae Torgove

Senior Projects Spring 2018

This project is a collection and absorption of concepts and frameworks drawn from centuries of thought. Indebted to the past, this philosophical and literary journey seeks to elucidate a productive path to follow in the wake of the “moment,” derived from Du Bois’ “double consciousness.” This split second explosion, resulting in the severance of the conception of the self from the world’s perception of the self, places one in the position of either submitting voluntarily to the dominant forces or producing and creating something, anything, to aid in the search for understanding the self. The transitive property of a ...

L’aquarium aux poissons rouges qui, dans Le ventre de Paris d’Émile Zola, domine la vitrine de la charcuterie des Quenu-Gradelle, n’a pas manqué d’interpeller la critique. Pourquoi en effet est-il donné à cet objet de clore l’extraordinaire description de cette chapelle du ventre qui met en abyme l’univers de profusion des Halles de Paris? Il s’agira ici de faire retour sur ce détail pour l’envisager comme point d’entrée dans un discours psychique dont le contenu ne pourra être véritablement révélé qu’à travers l’examen d’un ensemble de vitrines qui ...


Intersections And Crossings: Navigating Boundaries In Immigrant Women's Works In France, Leah Kiraly Sigle Holz 2018 University of Colorado at Boulder

Intersections And Crossings: Navigating Boundaries In Immigrant Women's Works In France, Leah Kiraly Sigle Holz

French & Italian Graduate Theses & Dissertations

In this dissertation, I examine how Josephine Baker, Annie Ernaux, Irène Némirovsky, and Nathalie Sarraute navigate notions of home, nation, and belonging in their lives and works. Chapter One focuses on categories and their formation, how they act as limits that have real effects on those within them. That chapter also centers on the theme of borders and boundaries as limiting, and how physical borders are used (un)officially to restrict access. In Chapter Two, I examine borders as liminal, conditional, transitory, and threshold spaces. I also inspect cases of border crossings and what it means to acknowledge arrival onto ...
