Un Crime Contre L'Humanité : Une Analyse De Quelques Journaux Algériens Et Français, La Mémoire Collective Et Les Relations Franco-Algériennes, Olivia Gustafson 2018 University of Richmond

Un Crime Contre L'Humanité : Une Analyse De Quelques Journaux Algériens Et Français, La Mémoire Collective Et Les Relations Franco-Algériennes, Olivia Gustafson

Honors Theses

Cette thèse fait une étude de l’histoire des relations franco-algériennes et et de la façon dont cette histoire influence les relations présentement. Avec l’élection d’Emmanuel Macron en 2017, quelques journaux ont dit que cette présidence commencera une nouvelle ère pour les relations franco-algériennes. Ainsi, cette étude pose-t-elle la question de comment les médias français et algériens représentent ces relations et cette histoire, et comment les tragédies qui se sont passées pendant la colonisation vont être réparées par l’État français. Brièvement, j’affirme que ces articles représentent une tension entre Macron, qui veut réparer les blessures du ...


La Vie En Périphérie : Une Comparaison Critique De La Représentation Des Populations Marginalisées Et Le Racisme Systématique Aux Etats-Unis Et À La Banlieue Du Paris, Milan Essex 2018 University of Richmond

La Vie En Périphérie : Une Comparaison Critique De La Représentation Des Populations Marginalisées Et Le Racisme Systématique Aux Etats-Unis Et À La Banlieue Du Paris, Milan Essex

Honors Theses

Les populations marginalisées sont toujours examinées à la loupe : les médias, les nouvelles, les films et la littérature. D’une part, elles sont utilisées en tant d’artistes, d’innovateurs, de modèles. D’autre part, elles sont stigmatisées comme des criminels, des paresseux, des instigateurs. La violence est toujours attachée à la figure où la peau est enrichie avec de la mélanine, et les droits humains sont menacés pour les personnes avec la peau de plus en plus brune, et les yeux de plus en plus «exotiques». Les épreuves de la peau noire se fixent dans la manière dont elles ...


Food, Power, And Hierarchy: A Case Study Of King Louis Xiv In France, Sophie Churchill 2018 University of Iowa

Food, Power, And Hierarchy: A Case Study Of King Louis Xiv In France, Sophie Churchill

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

Food and foodways are inherent aspects of everyday life but their significance is often overlooked. The importance of food is that it embodies a multitude of deeper meanings that are intrinsic to the society that is consuming it. As a key factor in the culture of France, food provides the lens to understanding larger social aspects such as power and hierarchy. This lens will be used to analyze the reign of King Louis XIV of France, who established himself as an absolute monarch. Many works have appeared on food in France and many on the reign of King Louis XIV ...

La Réémergence Du Sujet Dans Le Récit Français Après Mai 1968, Seyed Farzad Salamifar 2018 University of Iowa

La Réémergence Du Sujet Dans Le Récit Français Après Mai 1968, Seyed Farzad Salamifar

Theses and Dissertations

“Identity” constitutes one of the most debates theoretical concepts in the domain of postcolonial studies. Scholars often have a historical perspective for examining the question of identity in contemporary literary works. In fact, in the last three decades of the 20th century, we notice a significant increase in the number of literary works of an autobiographical and biographical nature. In the contemporary literature, the predominance of “personal narratives” in which reflect on identity, could be attributed to the heightened sense of individuality, which in turn results from the failure of Grand Ideologies, the mass migrations triggered by the processes of ...


Good Game, Greyory Blake 2018 Virginia Commonwealth University

Good Game, Greyory Blake

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis and its corresponding art installation, Lessons from Ziggy, attempts to deconstruct the variables prevalent within several complex systems, analyze their transformations, and propose a methodology for reasserting the soap box within the display pedestal. In this text, there are several key and specific examples of the transformation of various signifiers (i.e. media-bred fear’s transformation into a political tactic of surveillance, contemporary freneticism’s transformation into complacency, and community’s transformation into nationalism as a state weapon). In this essay, all of these concepts are contextualized within the exponential growth of new technologies. That is to say ...


Pity For The Mythic Brute: Pablo Picasso’S Minotaur In The Vollard Suite, Mary Sachs 2018 University of Colorado, Boulder

Pity For The Mythic Brute: Pablo Picasso’S Minotaur In The Vollard Suite, Mary Sachs

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This thesis examines the nuances of Pablo Picasso's minotaur as presented within the framework of the Vollard Suite. I argue that a text by Honoré de Balzac, Physiologie du Mariage, may have influenced Picasso's conception of the minotaur. It features of a minotaur, yet one framed within a parodic setting. The minotaur, explored in connection with the Balzacian creature, reveals the introspective nature of the Picasso’s beast. Furthermore, the comedic tone of Balzac's Physiologie served as a means for Picasso to reflect upon the subconscious drives, which in turn, the artist visually manifested through his surrogate-self ...

Undergraduate Honors Theses

The rise of Second Wave feminism in France had a profound impact upon many aspects of French culture and society. This thesis will focus on its influence on French literature, which was signified by the emergence of a new style of writing called l’écriture féminine. I shall examine the implementation of l’écriture féminineinfour works written by French feminist writers during this time period:Le rire de la méduseby Hélène Cixous, Les mots pour le dire by Marie Cardinal,Ce sexe qui n’en est pas unby Luce Irigaray, and Une femmeby Annie Ernaux.

A Palimpsestuous Novel: Claire Legendre's La Methode Stanislavski, Michèle A. Schaal 2018 Iowa State University

A Palimpsestuous Novel: Claire Legendre's La Methode Stanislavski, Michèle A. Schaal

World Languages and Cultures Publications

Claire Legendre emerged on the French literary scene in 1997 with her novel Making-of. A prolific writer, she went on to publish an additional five novels,1 an anthology of short stories (Le Crépuscule de Barbe-Bleue, 2001), two co-authored books with Jérôme Bonnetto,2 four plays,3 one book-length essay (Le Nénuphar et l’araignée, 2015), as well as numerous smaller essays and short fictions. Despite this prolixity, Legendre’s publications have, thus far, garnered little academic attention.4 Two reasons may explain her current marginality within the field of French Studies. Her second novel, Viande (1999), relegated her to ...


French Colonialism In Algeria: War, Legacy, And Memory, Haley Brown 2018 Bucknell University

French Colonialism In Algeria: War, Legacy, And Memory, Haley Brown

Honors Theses

Over the course of my research for my honors thesis project, I sought to better understand the history of French colonialism in Algeria in addition to how it is remembered today. I theorized that the legacy of this history impacts issues of immigration exclusion, islamophobia, racism, and social discrimination faced by Algerians in modern day France. These issues have become important topics of discussion and investigation in the wake of the recent terrorist attacks carried out by descendants of North African immigrants in the heart of hexagonal France. Through the study of primary and secondary sources, as well as a ...


Sens Et Saveur: L'Art De Traduire Dans Un Cadre Multilingue, Claire Jacobson 2018 University of Iowa

Sens Et Saveur: L'Art De Traduire Dans Un Cadre Multilingue, Claire Jacobson

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

Pour examiner le phénomène du multilinguisme littéraire dans les communautés maghrébines en France, je considère quelques textes écrits en français qui incluent des éléments linguistiques des autres langues, principalement l’arabe, et comment les traiter en tant que traductrice de formation. Les trois textes en question––Le gone du Chaâba d’Azouz Begag, Méchamment berbère de Mina Sif, et L’Essuie-mains des pieds de Gil Ben Aych––emploient plusieurs langues dans un texte français, ce qui pose un défi indiscutable pour le traducteur. Chaque auteur le fait différemment, donc il faut considérer les différents moyens de traduire cette figure de ...

De La Captivité À La Mobilité : Représentations Littéraires De La Migration Féminine De L’Afrique Francophone Vers La France, Rokhaya Aballa Dieng

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis explores the differences between works by and about francophone women migrants at the end of the eighteenth century and the beginning of the nineteenth century as compared to the treatment of migration by women from francophone Africa in the second half of the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first century, in order to analyze how slavery is connected to migration by women. The thesis also looks at what the differences are in the literary representations of women migrants by writers from francophone Africa and the perspective on migration presented by a French woman writer, Claire de ...

Fren 302: Representative Authors Ii-A Peer Review Of Teaching Benchmark Portfolio, Julia Frengs

UNL Faculty Course Portfolios

This portfolio traces the process of the design, teaching methods, and assessment tools I used in my first time teaching a survey of French literature course, FREN 302, or “Representative Authors II.” The primary goal of the course is to introduce students to “masterpieces” of French literature spanning from the Middle Ages to the present. The course is certified for the ACE 5 outcome, which emphasizes the use of analysis and interpretation. My own principal objective for the course, developing student autonomy and critical thinking skills, which intersects with this ACE 5 outcome, is the main focus of this study ...

La Liberté Et Les Deux Visages De La France : De La DéLéGitimation De La DéMocratie Franc̦Aise, Michael Kolodziejski 2018 Montclair State University

La Liberté Et Les Deux Visages De La France : De La DéLéGitimation De La DéMocratie Franc̦Aise, Michael Kolodziejski

Theses, Dissertations and Culminating Projects

This work explores the contradictions contained in the French ideals of democracy and their application to blacks in Africa and the French Caribbean. From the philosophical eruptions of French democratic ideals during the 18th century through the flux and reflux between Republican aspirations and monarchy during the 19th century that followed the proclamation of the Rights of Man of 1789 and the subsequent enshrinement of the Republic, France’s concomitant dehumanization of Blacks through the practice of slavery and colonialism has been a matter of hypocrisy. This hypocrisy would continue through the “decolonization” of francophone Africa during the 20th century ...
