Shoah Et Fiction Littéraire Au Vingt-Et-Unième Siècle : Une Littérature Dangereuse ?, Lucie Volquardsen Apr 2019

Shoah Et Fiction Littéraire Au Vingt-Et-Unième Siècle : Une Littérature Dangereuse ?, Lucie Volquardsen

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Since the second half of the twentieth century, representations of the Holocaust in all areas of Art have been on the rise. It is not– as it was right after the end of the war –, about sharing an individual recounting of one’s experience in the death camps, or even about giving an opportunity to the witnesses to tell their story, as it was the case after the Jerusalem’s trials. It is now about a mass of references and motifs, used and transformed with more or less skill in pop culture, not only in Europe (as it occurred right ...


(Dis)Embodied Cognition: Phenomenology, Spirit(Ual)Ism, And Performance In Proust, Paul Aarstad Apr 2019

(Dis)Embodied Cognition: Phenomenology, Spirit(Ual)Ism, And Performance In Proust, Paul Aarstad

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

A psychical researcher among Marcel Proust’s contemporaries called belief in the paranormal “the Dreyfus case of science.” References to spirit-life abound in Proust’s fiction, but critics have resisted readings that attend seriously to the numerous references in À la recherche du temps perdu to reincarnation, spirit-possession, and, especially, mediumship. The paper reads them through the lens of long-standing critical controversies, particularly concerning the relationship of Proust’s aesthetics and ontology with those of Henri Bergson and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. The paper accepts Nathalie Aubert’s finding in her 2011 essay “Proust et Bergson: La mémoire du corps” that Proust ...


Les Stratégies De L’Activisme Et Les Manifestations Françaises ; Une Étude De Quatrième Génération Par Wendy Delorme Et Bpm Par Robin Campillo, Nat Bush Apr 2019

Les Stratégies De L’Activisme Et Les Manifestations Françaises ; Une Étude De Quatrième Génération Par Wendy Delorme Et Bpm Par Robin Campillo, Nat Bush

Senior Theses and Projects

A society cannot change without inspired individuals who want to fight for it and who can strategize ways to reach their goals, and activism is the most engaging source for young people. Protests reach the news often, but there are other types of activism that work behind the scenes to ensure that everything remains organized. For example, there are meetings in which the activist groups discuss the steps that they plan to take in order for their target audience to understand what they are dissatisfied about. Activism can also take more artistic forms, such as film and literature, which can ...


"The Celebrated Madame Campan": Educating Republican Mothers À La Française In Nineteenth-Century America, Lydia Heaton Apr 2019

"The Celebrated Madame Campan": Educating Republican Mothers À La Française In Nineteenth-Century America, Lydia Heaton

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Marie Antoinette’s former lady-in-waiting and founder of an internationally acclaimed boarding school for girls, Madame Campan (1752-1822) taught both Napoleon Bonaparte’s stepdaughter and President James Monroe’s eldest daughter. She also published a popular memoir of Marie Antoinette’s life and several educational tracts. While Campan has been largely forgotten today, she is more closely connected to the development of American ideas about female education and republican motherhood than has yet been represented in the historiographical record. The French headmistress carefully crafted an educational system that proved to be influential on the development of American institutional education for ...


Dominique Fourcade: Recalculations, James Petterson Mar 2019

Dominique Fourcade: Recalculations, James Petterson

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

This article explores the relationship between poetry, photography and choreography in the writings of contemporary French poet Dominique Fourcade. Close readings of Fourcade’s 2001 M W alongside other of his works reveal some of the fundamental techniques of his writing, founded on formal recalculations sparked by interaction with other art forms, specifically the photography of Barbara Morgan and Isabelle Waternaux and the dance choreography of George Balanchine, Merce Cunningham, Pina Bausch, Mathilde Monnier and William Forsythe. The analysis also proposes alternative multi-disciplinary directions for the reception of poetry.

Intertexts Of The Ecological: Literary Space Revisited In Yanick Lahens's Bain De Lune, Jason Herbeck Jan 2019

Intertexts Of The Ecological: Literary Space Revisited In Yanick Lahens's Bain De Lune, Jason Herbeck

Jason Herbeck

The opening lines of Yanick Lahens’s Bain de lune (2014) find an unidentified narrator lying on a beach not far from the coastal community of Anse Bleue, staring at the worn, muddy boots of the man who has just discovered her lifeless body. As her narrative reveals, a hurricane has devastated the region over the past three days, and, in the wake of the storm, the deceased protagonist tries to piece together the fragmented memories of her life as a means of determining how she has ended up dead on the sand. From the very beginning of Lahens’s ...


A Tool For Exemplary Pastoral Care: Three Booklets Of The Edwardes Manuscript In Context, Hannah Weaver Jan 2019

A Tool For Exemplary Pastoral Care: Three Booklets Of The Edwardes Manuscript In Context, Hannah Weaver

Manuscript Studies

As the recent bloom of literary scholarship around manuscripts shows, the longstanding desire to correct and emend their lessons has ceded to an appreciation of what we can learn about medieval reading and writing practices from them. This paper addresses the question of genre through three apparently disparate manuscripts associated with the Augustinian canons at Oxford in the early thirteenth century. United by 1300 into a single codex that was later bound into the larger Edwardes manuscript, Gui de Warewic, La Chanson de Guillaume, and the Pseudo-Turpin Chronicle share a scribe, a lettrine artist, and a concern with acceptable Christian ...


Melancholia, Diaspora, And Madness In Caribbean Women’S Literature, Annaliese Scheer Jan 2019

Melancholia, Diaspora, And Madness In Caribbean Women’S Literature, Annaliese Scheer

Undergraduate Honors Theses

In Jean Rhys’ Wide Sargasso Sea (1966) and Myriam Warner-Vieyra’s Juletane (1982), two female protagonists battle with demons that haunt their psyche. As Antoinette and Juletane are forced to define their social and cultural identity, they become increasingly disassociated from the world. Rhys and Warner-Vieyra take conventions of female madness from earlier representations in the century and transpose them to a postcolonial context. Although the two protagonists embody vastly different experiences, they mirror each other’s ultimate refusal to be confined by stereotypical racial and gendered representations of the past. Antoinette and Juletane embody many of the tropes associated ...


Understanding Proust, Rio Turnbull Jan 2019

Understanding Proust, Rio Turnbull

Modernist Short Story Project

French author Marcel Proust was at the forefront of exploring the literary device “stream of consciousness” as its usage began to rise in the early 1900s. He seemed particularly interested in using “stream of consciousness” to delve into memory. What may be the most articulate statement of Proust about his philosophy of memory, according to O’Brien, is as follows: “Yes, if memory, thanks to oblivion, could not contract any link, throw any chain between it and the present minute, if it stayed in its place, on its date, if it kept its distance, its isolation in the hollow of ...


The New White Moderate: Bearing Witness To The Differend Of Race, Ethan T. Ashley Jan 2019

The New White Moderate: Bearing Witness To The Differend Of Race, Ethan T. Ashley

Honors Theses

As Frantz Fanon demonstrates in his text, Black Skin, White Masks, Sartrean existentialism fails to account for differences in racialized existence. Quite simply, the notion that “existence precedes essence” is reversed in the case of the black subject; he/she is living in a world that has rendered the black subject subservient to a predetermined essence. Ultimately, the fact that the white subject exists and may freely determine his/her essence while the black subject may not further demonstrates this gap or a chasm between black and white subjects that calls for further examination. In the first chapter, I will ...


In Between Realms: The Search For Feminine Selfhood In The Essais Of Montaigne, Anna Suarez Dec 2018

In Between Realms: The Search For Feminine Selfhood In The Essais Of Montaigne, Anna Suarez

Comparative Woman

My purpose is to explore factors of the Renaissance that determined women’s selfhood in Montaigne’s Essais. I argue that the shift into modernity is responsible for the loss of women’s autonomy as well as the anxiety experienced by men regarding their power as well as their potential. Montaigne and Renaissance discourse defines women only by their bodies (sexual organs) and I explore the elements that established biological essentialism. This paper exemplifies comparative literature in the sense that it combines literature, theory, and art for the purpose of creating a well-researched examination of the root causes for why ...
