Une Étude Comparative De La Restauration Scolaire Des Primaires Au Lycée En France Et Aux États Unis Au Xxie Siècle, Brianna Cummings 2019 Union College - Schenectady, NY

Une Étude Comparative De La Restauration Scolaire Des Primaires Au Lycée En France Et Aux États Unis Au Xxie Siècle, Brianna Cummings

Honors Theses

In recent years, there has been much debate surrounding national school lunch programs around the world. During the second half of the nineteenth century, the first school lunch programs were introduced on a school to school basis in both France and the United States. However national school lunch programs were not established until the middle of the following century. Since their establishment, national laws towards the school lunch program have greatly changed, sparked by major concern from citizens. By examining lunch programs in France and the United States, clear differences, as well as points of similarity, have been highlighted. These ...


Looking At Shadows: Four French Texts In English Translation, Kalena M. Hermes 2019 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Looking At Shadows: Four French Texts In English Translation, Kalena M. Hermes

World Languages and Cultures

This project present four French texts in English translation that share the theme of loss. This theme is perhaps one of the most poignant and relevant; loss is an experience that every human will encounter, and as people we continue across time to grapple with what it means for us and how to deal with it. These four texts will bring the perspectives of four authors to light in English. When we study how other countries and cultures deal with common human issues, we are able to gain new views on these issues. This project will make these texts accessible ...


La Nouvelle Vague Est-Elle Un Cinéma Existentialiste Français ?, Niuniu Zhang 2019 Union College - Schenectady, NY

La Nouvelle Vague Est-Elle Un Cinéma Existentialiste Français ?, Niuniu Zhang

Honors Theses

Throughout the world, Existentialism and New Wave Cinema are two defining pinnacles of French culture. As iconic of France as the baguette and cheese, the two subjects continue to retain their relevance in French and francophone cultural studies. My thesis explores the correlation between French existentialist philosophy and French New Wave cinema to argue for what can be called French Existentialist Cinema. In terms of French existentialist philosophy, I focus mainly on Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, and Albert Camus. As for the French New Wave, I focus first on one of its most highly admired precursors, Jean Vigo and ...


Le Féminisme Et La Femme Musulmane En France, Anna Elizabeth Gagion 2019 Union College

Le Féminisme Et La Femme Musulmane En France, Anna Elizabeth Gagion

Honors Theses

My French thesis investigates how some definitions of French feminism and particular French feminist movements find themselves oppressing Muslim women. France is a country that has vigorously regulated the separation of Church and State since 1902 legislation that declared “la laïcité” (secularism) obligatory for all public education. In my research I have found that the general belief in France that religion should never have any bearing on political decisions has been beneficial to most French citizens, but it also appears to oppress a number of Muslim women, as witnessed by the on-going debate surrounding the headscarf ban in French public ...


The Writing Of Exile, Rahma Elmi 2019 University of Maine

The Writing Of Exile, Rahma Elmi

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Perpetually exposed to geographical or emotional exile, the human being never finishes discovering himself. Each exile is the beginning of a new adventure in which chance holds the reins. In this thesis, I will analyze the writing of the exile of three French-speaking immigrants who have settled in Canada for some time. Born elsewhere than in Canada, the three French-Canadian writers reflected on their status, what they would have become if they did not immigrate to this country from their respective countries torn apart by the war, dictatorship or even cultural oppression. The search for a stable life and security ...

« Je Suis Harki » : Les Sphères De La Mémoire Harkie, Sarah Lettau 2019 William & Mary

« Je Suis Harki » : Les Sphères De La Mémoire Harkie, Sarah Lettau

Undergraduate Honors Theses

The Harkis are Algerian soldiers who fought for the French Army during the Algerian War (1954-1962). Considered traitors in Algeria, thousands of Harkis were massacred following the end of the war.

Those who managed to escape the massacres were repatriated to France, where they were placed primarily in camps with inhumane living conditions. A Harki community managed to form in the camps, and the constrictive nature of the camps led to a push to bring Harki collective memory into the French public sphere.

After the Algerian War was legally recognized as a war in 1999, a "flame of memory" inspired ...

Hors De L'Ombre: L'Environnement Et La Communauté Gaie Montréalaise Dans "Le Gay Savoir" De Michel Tremblay / Out Of The Shadows: The Environment And The Montreal Gay Community In Michel Tremblay's "Le Gay Savoir", Zackary L. Haynes

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Ce mémoire se concentre sur la présence de l’environnement chez Michel Tremblay, plus précisément dans sa série de cinq romans intitulée Le gay savoir (La nuit des princes charmants (1995) ; Quarante-quatre minutes, quarante-quatre secondes (1997) ; Le cœur découvert (1986) ; Le cœur éclaté (1993) ; Hotel Bristol, New York, N.Y. (1999)). Dans cette œuvre, Tremblay présente les changements du milieu homosexuel des années 1950 aux années 1990 du point de vue de plusieurs personnages. Ces changements sont visibles dans la présence de l’environnement physique (les conditions météorologiques, notamment), ayant une forte influence sur l’action dans les romans. En ...


The Subject Of Jouissance: The Late Lacan And Gender And Queer Theories, Frederic C. Baitinger 2019 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Subject Of Jouissance: The Late Lacan And Gender And Queer Theories, Frederic C. Baitinger

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The Subject of Jouissance argues that Lacan’s approach to psychoanalysis, far from being heteronormative, offers a notion of identity that deconstructs gender as a social norm, and opens onto a non-normative theory of the subject (of jouissance) that still remains to be fully explored by feminist, gender, and queer scholars. Drawing mostly on the later Lacan, The Subject of Jouissance shows that by locating the identity of the subject in the singularity of its bodily mode of enjoyment (that Lacan calls “jouissance”), and not in the Imaginary illusions of the ego, nor in the Symbolic social structures, Lacan fosters ...
