La Rhétorique De La Persuasion Dans Le Penser De Royal Mémoire De Guillaume Michel, Dit De Tours, Lidia Radi

Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Faculty Publications

En 1518, chez Jehan de la Garde et Pierre le Brodeur, paraît un recueil ayant pour titre Le Penser de Royal Mémoire, composé d´une douzaine de pièces dont la plupart sont des épîtres. La taille de chacune de ces compositions varie selon son propos, et aussi selon la fonction qu´elle remplit dans la structure de l´oeuvre. Chaque pièce a un caractère à la fois didactique et épidictique. La plupart sont adressées au jeune roi François 1er, pour l´inciter à se lancer dans la croisade proclamée par le pape Léon X, avec qui il signe un ...


Wittig, Monique, Abigail Rine 2010 George Fox University

Wittig, Monique, Abigail Rine

Faculty Publications - Department of English

Excerpt: "Monique Wittig was a novelist, theorist, and feminist activist, known primarily for her fictional works and theorization of feminism from a materialist, lesbian perspective. Wittig was a central figure in the feminist movement in France, and her writings on heterosexuality and the oppression of women have greatly influenced feminist thought and queer theory."


Cixous, Hélène, Abigail Rine 2010 George Fox University

Cixous, Hélène, Abigail Rine

Faculty Publications - Department of English

Excerpt: "Hélène Cixous is a highly prolific Francophone theorist, poet, novelist, playwright, philosopher, and literary critic: indeed, she is a writer whose work resists easy categorization. Although the majority of her publications are works of experimental fiction, she is most widely known in the English-speaking world for her contributions to French feminist and literary theory and for formulating the concept of écriture feminine, or feminine writing."

Franco-Irish Connections: Essays, Memoirs And Poems In Honour Of Pierre Joannon : Review, Eamon Maher 2010 Institute of Technology, Tallaght

Franco-Irish Connections: Essays, Memoirs And Poems In Honour Of Pierre Joannon : Review, Eamon Maher

Articles

The name Pierre Joannon is synonymous with Irish studies and with Franco-Irish relations. I can think of few, if any, people who are more worthy recipients of this beautifully presented Festschrift than the Honorary French Irish Consul, scholar and former President of the Ireland Fund de France. You get some idea of his stature from the list of contributors to this book: two former Taoisigh, Garret FitzGerald and John Bruton, two Nobel Laureates, John Hume and Seamus Heaney, poets Brendan Kennelly and John Montague, a host of historians including Dermot Keogh, Joe Lee, Eunan O’Halpin and Kevin Whelan, distinguished ...

À La Recherche Du «Bourgeois»: Drame Sérieux Et Tentations Narratives Chez Diderot, Olivier M. Delers 2010 University of Richmond

À La Recherche Du «Bourgeois»: Drame Sérieux Et Tentations Narratives Chez Diderot, Olivier M. Delers

Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Faculty Publications

Dans le drame bourgeois de Diderot, il n'y a pas de « bourgeois». Pas de personnages bourgeois (par exemple, pas de M. Jourdain ou de Turcaret dans le rôle du bourgeois à ridiculiser), pas de valeurs bourgeoises (qui sont après tout une invention du XIXe siècle), pas d'esprit de groupe bourgeois - de conscience de classe - qui unirait et distinguerait les protagonistes du Fils naturel (1757) et du Pere de famille (1758). Béatrice Didier, dans son Diderot dramaturge du vivant, remarque ce flottement conceptuel sans pour autant s'en distancer : « il s'agit de représenter la vie de bourgeois ...


Re-Hybridizing Transnational Domesticity And Femininity: Women’S Contemporary Filmmaking And Lifewriting In France, Algeria, And Tunisia, Stacey Weber-Fève 2010 Iowa State University

Re-Hybridizing Transnational Domesticity And Femininity: Women’S Contemporary Filmmaking And Lifewriting In France, Algeria, And Tunisia, Stacey Weber-Fève

World Languages and Cultures Books

Re-hybridizing Transnational Domesticity and Femininity examines the problems of voicing the personal when considering the role and place of women in the home. Analyzing a collection of first-person cinematic and literary narratives by Assia Djebar, Annie Ernaux, Simone de Beauvoir, Raja Amari, Coline Serreau, Leïla Sebbar, and Yamina Benguigui; Weber-Fève explores the transnational processes of identity formation, gender performance, and construction of culture and society. Through a closer look at contemporary representations of French, Algerian, and Tunisian women on the page and on the screen, this study discusses the ways in which homemaking, nation, and gender are intricately bound to ...


Acquisition And Solidifcation Of Grammar And Vocabulary In Elementary French Classrooms Through Skit Performance, Jill Owen 2010 Western Kentucky University

Acquisition And Solidifcation Of Grammar And Vocabulary In Elementary French Classrooms Through Skit Performance, Jill Owen

Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

In this study, groups of elementary French students in two classes at Western Kentucky University utilized two different methods of skit performance to demonstrate the importance of communicative activities in the foreign language classroom. The effectiveness of each method was assessed to determine which method helped the students acquire grammar and vocabulary concepts more readily. One method was to have students write their own skits using a chapter in their textbook. The other method was to give students an outline that they filled in and memorized. Surveys and quizzes were used to gather data. The results of which method proved ...

Se Rã©Ã©Crire: L'Appropriation Du Langage Du Colonisateur, Une Lecture Du Chemin Des Ordalies D’Abdellatif Laã¢Bi, Nadia Miskowiec

LSU Master's Theses

After the independence of Morocco in 1956, the question of the language arose among Moroccan writers. Highly aware of its historical implications authors had to choose between a vernacular such as spoken Arabic or Berber and a traditionally written language such as classical Arabic or French, languages of the colonizers. From there arose the contested choice of French, perceived by some as a patriotic treason. Use of French was predicted to disappear, however some authors defended its use. One such author is Abdellatif Laâbi, father of the famous review Souffles created in 1966, that played a crucial role in defining ...


Housework And Dance As Counterpoints In French-Tunisian Filmmaker Raja Amari's Satin Rouge, Stacey Weber-Fève 2010 Iowa State University

Housework And Dance As Counterpoints In French-Tunisian Filmmaker Raja Amari's Satin Rouge, Stacey Weber-Fève

World Languages and Cultures Publications

In the late 1950s and early 1960s, when an independent, postcolonial Tunisia emerged from under French colonial rule and began to engage in “modernized” nation-building practices, questions addressing the role of Tunisian women (and more importantly their image in this “new,” postcolonial and independent society) took precedence. Many political, artistic, and intellectual figures were concerned with how Tunisian women’s images were constructed in the public eye, in the arts, and in the media. These concerns led to a variety of reformist thoughts during this nationalist movement (and even still today), but all postulations appeared to coalesce in the perceived ...


Thibaut De Champagne And Disputed Attributions: The Case Of Mss Bern, Burgerbibliothek 389 (C) And Paris, Bnf Fr. 1591(R), Christopher Callahan 2010 Illinois Wesleyan University

Thibaut De Champagne And Disputed Attributions: The Case Of Mss Bern, Burgerbibliothek 389 (C) And Paris, Bnf Fr. 1591(R), Christopher Callahan

Scholarship

This essay examines the manuscript context of the songs of Thibaut de Champagne that were either marginalized in or excluded from A. Wallensköld’s 1925 edition. An evaluation of the placement and ordering of Thibaut’s songs in the codices, as well as their rubrics and melodies, affords an understanding of the construction of these chansonniers, obscured through decades of reliance on print editions. A rapid scrutiny of these linguistically (C) and musically (R) marginal manuscripts both reveals how little we know about the transmission of trouvère lyric and underscores the importance of a material-philological approach for all future editions ...


Staging Polemics: Charles Palissot, Voltaire, And The "Theatrical Event" In Eighteenth-Century France, Logan James Connors 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Staging Polemics: Charles Palissot, Voltaire, And The "Theatrical Event" In Eighteenth-Century France, Logan James Connors

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

This dissertation explores the exciting world of eighteenth-century French dramatic writing, performance and criticism from the point of view of the theatrical spectator. Instead of focusing on one single genre or writer, I assemble the textual creation, performance, and criticism of certain “polemical” plays into what I term a “theatrical event.” This optic provides a holistic vision of theater and an accurate view of how drama underwent noticeable change due to playwrights’ political associations, public reactions to performance, and the emerging power of the periodical press. In sum, this project differs from previous studies by focusing on the increasing rhetorical ...

Student Perspectives On Study Abroad: The Case Of Louisiana State University's Summer Internships In The French Alps, Terri Lee Schroth

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

While many studies have been conducted on study abroad programs, few have sought to examine the inner workings of a short-term, non-traditional (non-classroom based) program, particularly from the participants’ point-of-view. This in-depth case study explores a short-term (4-week) cultural and linguistic internship program, “LSU in the French Alps,” as well as the perspectives of four program participants. This research was conducted during four phases of the study abroad experience: the pre-departure orientation (4 days on LSU’s main campus), the in-country stay (4 weeks in the French Alps), re-entry into the United States (first 10 days upon return), and post ...


Pen As Sword: Combating The Historical Record In Fignolé’S Moi, Toussaint Louverture, Avec La Plume Complice De L'Auteur, Mariana F. Past 2010 Dickinson College

Pen As Sword: Combating The Historical Record In Fignolé’S Moi, Toussaint Louverture, Avec La Plume Complice De L'Auteur, Mariana F. Past

Faculty and Staff Publications By Year

In Écrire en pays assiégé: Haiti: Writing under Siege, Marie-Agnès Sourieau and Kathleen Balutansky propose that Haitian literature, perpetually engagée, has long served as "the locus for social criticism and activism under political oppression." (25) One of the major weapons that is wielded in these literary undertakings is the figure of Toussaint Louverture, who, the authors suggest, has operated "both as a founding myth for the nation and as a catharsis in the process of self-recognition." (26) Although Toussaint indisputably plays a crucial part in the Haitian imaginary, and that of the Caribbean at large, I believe that the function ...
