Not Your Average Rose: Cultural Inversion In Pizan’S 'City Of Ladies', Alex Donley 2020 Liberty University

Not Your Average Rose: Cultural Inversion In Pizan’S 'City Of Ladies', Alex Donley

Montview Liberty University Journal of Undergraduate Research

This research addresses Le Livre de la Cité des Dames—translated into English as The Book of the City of Ladies81818app手机版下载—as an outstanding work of proto-feminist literature from 1405. It is written by a woman, in defense of women. Christine de Pizan plays the central character in her own work, in which she combats misogyny with a revised account of history. She battles prevalent ideals of courtly love and gender inequality as things that are not merely repulsive or immoral, but wholly heretical. Rather than focusing on historical accuracy, de Pizan uses the literary power of her narrative to ...

Rewriting The Oeuvre: Raymond Queneau And The Art Of Translation, Christopher Clarke 2020 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Rewriting The Oeuvre: Raymond Queneau And The Art Of Translation, Christopher Clarke

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

While the literary oeuvre of French author Raymond Queneau (1903-1976) has been extensively studied, his work as a literary translator has been largely overlooked. Queneau was a prominent member of the French literary avant-garde, but also a literary translator for two decades (1934-1953), and his writing was greatly influenced and impacted by his readings and translations of Anglophone writers. This dissertation provides insight into the role of translation in his conception of writing and language, and the inseparability of the different facets of his career as a writer, literary translator, and publisher. I examine his personal linguistic and literary history ...


Martial Caillebotte’S Mélodies And Scènes Lyriques: Analytical Essays And Performance Guide, Dominique McCormick 2020 The Graduate Center, City University of New York 81818app手机版下载

Martial Caillebotte’S Mélodies And Scènes Lyriques: Analytical Essays And Performance Guide, Dominique Mccormick

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Composer, pianist and photographer, Martial Caillebotte (1853–1910) was the unknown younger brother of famous Impressionist painter, Gustave Caillebotte. Martial studied piano and harmony at the Paris Conservatory from 1870–1874. Martial created a substantial number of musical compositions including mélodies, scènes lyriques, operas, symphonic poems, as well as sacred choral and symphonic works. Born into a wealthy Parisian family, he did not need to work for a living and did not self-promote, therefore his pieces were rarely performed and after his death, most of his compositions were left in family archives. In the late 1990’s a rebirth of ...


Le Journaliste/Ecrivain : Reporter Ou Reformateur ? L’Exemple De Franchir La Mer De Wolfgang Bauer, Hasna Bouharfouche 2020 Assistant Professor, French Department, Faculty of Human Sciences, Beirut Arab University, Beirut, Lebanon 81818app手机版下载

Le Journaliste/Ecrivain : Reporter Ou Reformateur ? L’Exemple De Franchir La Mer De Wolfgang Bauer, Hasna Bouharfouche

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

Suite à l’essor industriel et technologique, le monde devient la scène de plusieurs crises environnementales, sociales et humanitaires en parallèle avec la course aux armements. Les répercussions de ces crises se traduisent entre autres par des changements démographiques dramatiques dans certaines zones du monde, notamment au Moyen-Orient (la Palestine, l’Iraq et la Syrie à titre d’exemple. Le Liban auparavant durant la guerre civile), à cause des déplacements forcés et des nombres des émigrés. Ces déplacements attirent les médias du monde qui tentent de par leur « responsabilité sociale » de parler et de comprendre ce genre de crise, et ...


For The Dead: Witnessing Images Of Violence In Jonathan Littell's Une Vieille Histoire: Nouvelle Version, Orit Yushinsky Troupin 2020 none 81818app手机版下载

For The Dead: Witnessing Images Of Violence In Jonathan Littell's Une Vieille Histoire: Nouvelle Version, Orit Yushinsky Troupin

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

This article deals with representing violence and witnessing in Jonathan Littell's novel Une Vieille Histoire: Nouvelle Version81818app手机版下载. First, I show how by means of renouncing mimetic representation, Littell "weaves" a reality of violence and excessive sensations into a text and creates disturbing abstract-corporeal images that stimulate readers' attention to contemporary prevailing violence in our societies. I then claim that narrators in the novel, in their role as abusers, victims, or witnesses, become fascinated with images of violence that stupefy them, turning them into blinded witnesses who cannot testify on ungraspable and impenetrable images of violence. As witnesses, narrators become ...


The Fourth Estate: French Resistance To Nazi Occupation In The Press, Nathan J. Johnson 2020 Texas Tech University 81818app手机版下载

The Fourth Estate: French Resistance To Nazi Occupation In The Press, Nathan J. Johnson

The Macksey Journal

Liberté, egalité, fraternité. The three totems of the French revolution have dominated the nation’s cultural and political system for centuries. And even as the three estates, clergy, aristocracy, and as Abbé Sieyès questioned, « Qu'est-ce que le Tiers-État? » in profound and impactful ways for the revolution, a fourth estate was growing and earning its place as the ardent protector of the principles of liberty, equality, and fraternity. First coined by political thinker Edmund Burke in 1787, the idea of the freedom of the press as the guardian of veritas and as essential to the workings of a democratic government ...


Code-Switching In L2 Spanish: A Comparison Of French And English Learners, Liliana Montoya 2020 The University of Western Ontario

Code-Switching In L2 Spanish: A Comparison Of French And English Learners, Liliana Montoya

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

81818app手机版下载This dissertation investigates whether L2 Spanish learners’ grammar intuitions on code-switching (CS) show evidence of the predictions made by the Functional Head Constraint (FHC) proposed by Belazi, Rubin, & Toribio (1994). Building on this theory, the present work supports the idea that L2 learners have an intuitive sense of code-switching well-formedness, i.e., they count on unconscious grammatical principles to produce code-switched utterances as well as to assess their grammaticality. Our primary research question is: given the usual absence of CS input that classroom L2 learners receive, will their grammar intuitions on CS show evidence of the predictions made by the FHC? In order to answer this question, we carried out two experiments with two different groups of L2 Spanish learners: native speakers of English and French with different level of proficiency in the L2.

81818app手机版下载In Experiment 1, we used an Acceptability Judgment Task (AJT) administered in Toribio (2001a) to evaluate participants’ grammatical intuitions on (un)grammatical switching boundaries. In Experiment 2 we employed two tasks to have two types of experimental data: A Self-paced Reading Task (SPRT) which looked at participants’ real time processing, and an AJT to observe their grammatical intuitions.

81818app手机版下载Confirming our hypothesis and in line with the FHC, we found that participants have accurate grammar intuitions about CS. These results are consistent with previous studies (Toribio, 2001a; Dussias, 2003; Koronkiewicz, 2018; Giancaspro, 2013, 2015) at proving that L2 learners exhibit linguistic knowledge of the structural restrictions in CS. The analysis per groups further showed that both the English and French intermediate learners’ exhibited more accurate acceptability responses than the beginner group. Intermediate L2 Spanish learners distinguished between grammatical and ungrammatical CS while beginners had problems recognizing grammaticality especially in switches after modal/auxiliary, quantifier, preposition and adjectives. Results obtained ...


Musical Materialty: 19th Century French Music Culture Embodied In The Palais Garnier Main Facade, Noelle Yongwei Barr 2020 University of California, Santa Barbara 81818app手机版下载

Musical Materialty: 19th Century French Music Culture Embodied In The Palais Garnier Main Facade, Noelle Yongwei Barr

The Macksey Journal

My research project analyzes the main facade of the Palais Garnier Opera House in Paris in the context of nineteenth-century French music culture. During the Second Empire of France, Napoleon III entrusted the commission to build a new imperial opera house to the architect Charles Garnier. This structure played a major role in the urbanization of Paris under Baron Haussmann, who brought “air, light, and cleanliness”, to create a city worthy of an empire. The Neo-Baroque style of the new Paris Opera House synthesized classical and baroque elements, creating a dazzling edifice that met those standing along the axis of ...

In The Wake Of Medea: Neoclassical Theater And The Arts Of Destruction [Table Of Contents], Juliette Cherbuliez

Literature

In the Wake of Medea examines the violence of seventeenth-century French political dramas. French tragedy usually appears as a passionless, cerebral genre that refused all forms of violence. In the Wake81818app手机版下载 explores the rhetorical, literary, and performance strategies through which violence persisted. The mythological figure of Medea, foreigner who massacres her brother, murders kings, burns down Corinth, and kills her own children, can serve as a paradigm for this violence. Paradigmatic also of the refugee who is welcomed yet feared, who confirms our concept of the social while threatening its integrity, Medea’s presence is this book’s organizing principle ...

Battling A World Of Hate With Hope: Unearthing The Life And Work Of Adolphe Duhart, Audrey J. Gibson 2020 Centenary College of Louisiana 81818app手机版下载

Battling A World Of Hate With Hope: Unearthing The Life And Work Of Adolphe Duhart, Audrey J. Gibson

The Macksey Journal

During the era surrounding the Civil War in the United States, a time when the country was at its most racially tense and divided, a group of writers in Southern Louisiana endangered their livelihood by publishing their essays, short stories, and poetry. This group consisted of free Creole men of color, who wrote fervently, showing that they too could create art like their white counterparts. These writers would frequently publish in black-run newspapers, often protecting themselves from violence by writing under pseudonyms. This is the case for Adolphe Duhart, who wrote emotionally and politically charged poetry under the name “Lelia ...


La Critique De La Société Africaine À Travers La Calebasse Cassée De Tunde Fatunde, Sikiru Ogundokun 2020 Western University 81818app手机版下载

La Critique De La Société Africaine À Travers La Calebasse Cassée De Tunde Fatunde, Sikiru Ogundokun

French Studies Publications

Résumé

Notre argument, dans ce chapitre, est que La calebasse cassée de Tunde Fatunde est une réponse à certaines pratiques jugées anormales en Afrique occidentale. Le dramaturge dénonce l’abus de pouvoir politique, le néo-colonialisme, la corruption, l’infidélité dans le foyer conjugal et l’oppression de la femme. Cette réflexion a pour but de corriger les méfaits sociopolitiques dans la société humaine non seulement en Afrique. La littérature est bien sûr, un instrument qui permet de régler les actions et les événements dans une société donnée.


L’Oralité Dans L’Écriture Romanesque De Ramonu Sanusi, Sikiru Ogundokun 2020 Western University

L’Oralité Dans L’Écriture Romanesque De Ramonu Sanusi, Sikiru Ogundokun

French Studies Publications

Résumé

Dans le monde entier, l’oralité est la base de la littérature. En effet, toutes les littératures possèdent des caractéristiques du discours traditionnel. A travers cet article, nous essayons d’examiner les éléments de l’oralité dans trois romans de Ramonu Sanusi; à savoir, Le Bistouri des larmes (2005), Un Nègre a violé une Blonde à Dallas (2016) et La vie d’un enfant mystérieux (2016). A travers cette étude, on note que l’écrivain africain peut exploiter à une fin créative des œuvres littéraires : les contes, les proverbes, les comparaisons, les métaphores, les dialogues, le concept du surnaturel ...

Refugees And Human Rights In French-Speaking Europe, Jacob Kang

French Summer Fellows

This paper seeks to explain the manner in which French-speaking European States, namely France, Switzerland, and Belgium, treat asylum seekers. To do so, we will first examine, the philosophical underpinnings of European conceptions of the state, of personhood, and of human rights. In doing so, we move to understand cultural attitudes towards asylum seekers through European philosophers such as Rousseau and Kant. The second aspect, the legal aspect, will explain the manner through which the aforementioned philosophies are reflected through governance in each of the states. Finally, we will examine the demographic profiles of the refugees and perform an outcomes ...
