“The Very Large Shakespeare Array”: The Merchant of Santa Fe (1993)

What is Shakespeare to New Mexico, or New Mexico to him? Taking as a starting point First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, a year-long exhibition of the 1623 printing of Shakespeare’s plays, Prof. Greenberg examines Shakespeare’s place in New Mexican cultural history. The talk takes a virtual tour through New Mexico to show how Shakespeare functions locally as well as regionally, nationally, and internationally. Throughout Prof. Greenberg focuses on The Merchant of Santa Fe, a radical adaptation of Shakespeare’s controversial depiction of early modern covenantal communities in The Merchant of Venice. Written and performed in New Mexico in 1993, Santa Fe illuminates and is illuminated by the performance practices, historical myths, and modern-day technologies in “the state different.” Prof. Greenberg concludes with a consideration of the ethical implications of adaptation, both theatrical and cultural, not only in New Mexico but also beyond its borders.

Contrat doctoral, EMMA, Université Montpellier 3 (2016-2019)

EMMA (Etudes Montpelliéraines du Monde Anglophone), Université Montpellier 3, France, propose un contrat doctoral de 3 ans qui débutera le 1er octobre 2016.

Thématique proposée : « L’humble dans la littérature et les arts britanniques des XX-XXIe siècles ».

Si l’humble, dans le domaine de la fiction, peut s’analyser en termes socio-économiques et s’entendre comme synonyme de pauvreté, comme cela a souvent été le cas dans la critique des romans victoriens, il s’agira ici d’élargir la définition en prenant en compte d’autres formes d’humilité et de voir en quoi l’humble, dans sa dimension éthique et politique, transforme et renouvelle la littérature ou les arts britanniques modernistes ou contemporains. Dans une recherche qui pourra s’appuyer, entre autres, sur les poverty studies, precariousness studies et la philosophie contemporaine, l’humble sera envisagé de manière novatrice comme catégorie esthétique.

Cette thèse sera dirigée par un professeur d’EMMA et s’inscrira dans les travaux collectifs de l’axe « L’invention de l’autre » et plus précisément du projet « Manières d’être autre : l’humble » consultable sur le site d’EMMA : http://pays-anglophones.upv.univ-montp3.fr/  Le candidat retenu participera aux activités scientifiques du centre de recherche EMMA et bénéficiera pleinement de sa formation à la recherche.

Une maîtrise correcte du français est souhaitable pour que le doctorant puisse bénéficier de son séjour à Montpellier. Il devra également résider sur place. La thèse pourra éventuellement être rédigée en anglais.

Les candidats sont invités à envoyer un CV et un descriptif précis de leur projet de thèse (3000 mots maximum) en anglais ou en français à christine.reynier@univ-montp3.fr et jean-michel.ganteau@univ-montp3.fr avant le 1er juin 2016. Deux lettres de recommandation confidentielles devront être envoyées aux adresses ci-dessus.

Une première sélection des dossiers sera effectuée et les candidats retenus seront auditionnés en français au début du mois de juillet 2016 à Montpellier ou éventuellement par visio-conférence.

Le candidat retenu prendra ses fonctions au 1er octobre 2016 et recevra un salaire mensuel d’environ 1500€ (avec possibilité de passer à 1800€ si monitorat) pour une durée de 3 ans. Ce contrat doctoral est réservé aux étudiants titulaires d’un Master d’une autre université que celle de Montpellier 3.

PhD scholarship, EMMA, University Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3, France (2016-2019)

Applications are invited for this three-year Doctoral Award, slated to commence on 1 October 2016. The deadline for application is June 1, 2016.

Proposed research topic: “The ‘humble’ in 20th-to 21st-Century British Literature and Arts”

EMMA (Montpellier Studies of the English-Speaking World), University Paul-Valéry Montpellier3, France is pleased to announce a call for applications for a fully funded three-year PhD studentship (2016-2019). The successful candidate will help develop the collaborative project on “Ways of being other” within the programme “Inventing the other” (http://pays-anglophones.upv.univ-montp3.fr/ ). As a member of EMMA, the PhD student will take part in the research activities of the centre and benefit from the PhD training it provides.

The successful applicants’ primary task will be to write a doctoral thesis on the topic of The ‘humble’ in 20th-to 21st-Century British Literature and Arts”

 In British fiction, what is humble can be analysed in social and economic terms and be understood as a synonym of poverty, as has often been the case in the criticism of Victorian novels. The aim of the thesis will be to enlarge the definition of the term, taking into account other forms of humility, and to see in what ways the “humble” and/or humility, as ethical and/or political constructs, have transformed and renewed Modernist or contemporary British literature or arts. Drawing on poverty studies, precariousness studies and contemporary philosophy, the “humble” could be redefined in an innovative way as an aesthetic category.

The PhD studentship will be supervised by a member of EMMA (Montpellier Studies of the English-Speaking World), University Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3, France. The successful applicant must have a sufficiently good knowledge of French to benefit from his or her stay at Montpellier. He or she will be expected to reside in Montpellier. The PhD thesis may be written in French or in English.

Value of the studentship: 1500€/month for 3 academic years (2016-2019)

How to apply
Candidates should send a CV and a summary of 3000 words maximum of their research project to jean-michel.ganteau@univ-montp3.fr and reynierchristine@gmail.com before June 1, 2016.

Two confidential references (in English or in French) from persons with a direct knowledge of the candidate should be sent to the same electronic address by the closing date. Candidates may be called for interview in Montpellier or via videoconference facilities in early July. Applications from candidates with a Master’s degree from University Paul-Valéry Montpellier3 will not be accepted.

Sommaire Essais sur l’art 8

La traduction fait partie intégrante de notre vie quotidienne, au point de susciter peu d’interrogations de la part du grand public. Elle se trouve aussi au coeur de la collection Essais sur l’art, qui vise à faire découvrir au lecteur francophone des essais d’écrivains et artistes de langue anglaise. En réunissant des textes portant sur la traduction même, ce volume tente de mettre en évidence certains de ses principes et de ses questionnements essentiels. Pour la première fois, il rend accessible au public francophone un aperçu de la réflexion menée par les auteurs anglo-américains sur la traduction, entre le début du XIXe et la fin du XXe siècle. D’Alexander Fraser Tytler et Matthew Arnold à Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward FitzGerald et I. A. Richards, en passant par Anthony Burgess, Vladimir Nabokov, W. H. Auden et John Glassco, des écrivains reconnus, souvent célèbres en tant que créateurs, s’interrogent sur la traduction ou considèrent leur propre expérience de traducteurs.
Qu’est-ce qu’une bonne traduction ? Quelle est l’autorité du traducteur, comment définir son rôle par rapport à l’auteur ? Quelle importance accorder au public ou au lecteur ? Est-ce lui qui motive la traduction, la retraduction ? La traduction peut-elle, voire doit-elle devenir une recréation ? Parfois enthousiastes, parfois méfiants ou réprobateurs, ces écrivains renouvellent des questions séculaires grâce à leur perspective d’artistes et montrent, souvent avec humour, en quoi la traduction peut être un art.

Ethics of Alterity, Confrontation and Responsibility in 19th- to 21st-Century British Arts

Edited by Jean-Michel Ganteau & Christine Reynier
Collection « Horizons anglophones », série Present Perfect.
Sommaire_Ethics_Arts

couvethics2

Various art forms inscribe, program or perform the preference of relationship. In so doing, they put otherness high on their aesthetic agenda by caring about the cultural other, the other of gender, race, class or history. Such art forms from different periods promote a mode of sensibility to the other, whether the foreign or the invisible, or both, in their various manifestations. Sensibility to otherness is envisaged through the means of strident or humble art-forms and aesthetic choices, from the overtly experimental, to subdued adaptation. In confronting and welcoming the other art object, the other culture, or the othered citizen, art objects to the tyranny of the same and promotes such values as attentiveness, responsiveness and responsibility to forms of otherness, i.e. to the ways in which art cares about, or even takes care of the other. This implies the practice of an ethic of alterity (as distinct from the formulation of general rules) that is accountable for making the spectator or listener pay attention to social, economic and cultural invisibilities. Such an ethic of alterity joins hands with the political and may help chart the evolution of the objects and forms of engagement from the Victorian period to the present.

Sommaire Patti Smith

« Outside. Outside of society. That’s where I want to be. If you’re looking, that’s where you’ll find me.” This is what Patti Smith sang back in 1978. Where is she in 2015? With all the fame and recognition. With thirteen original albums released, her poetry regularly reprinted, her paintings and photographs on show in galleries around the world, an induction in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a National Book Award for her first prose work, Just Kids. Is she still outside? Is she still the iconic, rebellious, rock’n’roll figure of her youth? Patti Smith has lived a rock’n’roll life, a life of words and sounds, of poetry and images. She has slept on doorsteps, on park benches. But perhaps she never meant to be outside. Perhaps she did not want to be a rebel. Perhaps being outside is only a price she had to pay.

These are the issues addressed in this collection of essays, not from a historical or sociological angle, but through her artistry. An attempt at locating Patti Smith by assessing her trajectory, her complex, unpredictable moves. “Oh I just move in another dimension,” she sings on “Ain’t It Strange”, before inviting us to come and join her. We have tried and followed her.

Troubled Legacies
Heritage/Inheritance in American Minority Literatures

Editor(s): Michel Feith, Claudine Raynaud
2015, Cambridge Scholars Publishing

0229239_troubled-legacies_300

Book Description

What is being passed on? The questions of heritage and inheritance are crucial to American minority literatures. Some inheritances are claimed; some are imposed and become stifling; others still are impossible, like the memories of oppression or alienation. Heritage is not only patrimony, however; it is also a process in a state of constant reconfiguration. The body – its semiotics, its genealogy, its pressure points – figures prominently as inevitable referent for the minority racial/ethnic subject, the performance, and the writing of difference.

This collection of essays analyzes contemporary novels from major African American writers, such as Gayl Jones, Phyllis Alesia Perry, Percival Everett, John Edgar Wideman, and Colson Whitehead, and ethnic American novelists like Jeffrey Eugenides, Philip Roth, Gish Jen, and Sergio Troncoso. It also includes the study of a painting by African American artist Robert Colescott. The first section of the book examines the inscription of African American writers’ relation to the nation’s past: the trauma of slavery, the burden of foundational discourses, or the legacy of the classical philosophical canon. The second part of the text is an assessment of the postmodern aesthetics of contemporary black fiction in the construction of history, unveiling the modalities of the palimpsest, fragmentation, interread more

Couverture Rospide Sorlin 2015

Book Description

This volume focuses on language and ethics in literary genres, such as dystopia, science fiction, and fantasy, which depict encounters with alterity. Indeed, so-called ‘genre literature’ embodies a heuristic model that dramatizes and exacerbates these encounters by featuring exotic, subhuman or post-human beings defying human knowledge, elements particularly prevalent in science fiction and fantasy. These genres have often been regarded as an entertaining or escapist field that does not lend itself to ethical and poetical reflections, limiting its scope to a hollow and servile repetition of genre codes. This volume shows unequivocally that the field does lend itself to such reflections.

The contributors to this book highlight genre literature’s defamiliarising power, through which things can be “seen”. In meta-conceptualising the relationship between language and reality, it problematises and enhances this relation by making it more easily perceivable. Rather than contenting itself with merely questioning the mechanism of estrangement, the book shows that genre literature explores the confines of readability and the boundary between the readerly and the writerly. In their desire to represent the Other in all its complexity, writers are indeed confronted with an ethical and poetical aporia: how can what escapes humanity be described in humaread more

Friedrich Schleiermacher and the Question of Translation

Ed. by Cercel, Larisa / Serban, Adriana
Walter De Gruyter, 2015

9783110375916

Aims and Scope

The aim of this volume is to assess Friedrich Schleiermacher’s contribution to the theory of translation two centuries after his address “On the Different Methods of Translating” at the Academy of Sciences in Berlin, and to explore its potential for generating future innovative work. For the first time this classic text forms the object of a focused, interdisciplinary approach. Scholars of philosophy and translation, working in English, French and German, provide a close reading of Schleiermacher’s lecture and combine their efforts in order to highlight the fundamental role translation plays in his hermeneutic thinking and the importance of hermeneutics for his theorisation of translation, within the historical and literary context of Romanticism. The various contributions revisit key concepts in Schleiermacher’s thought, in particular the famous metaphor of movement; examine the relation between his theoretical writings and his practice as translator of Plato, unearthing some of their philosophical and linguistic implications; discuss Schleiermacher’s reception in Germany and abroad; and assess the relevance of his ideas in the beginning of the 21st century as well as their potential to inspire further research in translation and interpreting.

About the Book

This book visits vulnerability in contemporary British fiction, considering vulnerability in its relation to poetics, politics, ethics, and trauma. Vulnerability and risk have become central issues in contemporary culture, and artistic productions have increasingly made it their responsibility to evoke various types of vulnerabilities, from individual fragilities to economic and political forms of precariousness and dispossession. Informed by trauma studies and the ethics of literature, this book addresses such issues by focusing on the literary evocations of vulnerability and analyzing various aspects of vulnerable form as represented and performed in British narratives, from contemporary classics by Peter Ackroyd, Pat Barker, Anne Enright, Ian McEwan, and Jeanette Winterson, to less canonical texts by Nina Allan, Jon McGregor, and N. Royle. Chapters on romance, elegy, the ghost story, and the state-of-the-nation novel draw on a variety of theoretical approaches from the fields of trauma studies, affect theory, the ethics of alterity, the ethics of care, and the ethics of vulnerability, among others. Showcasing how the contemporary novel is the privileged site of the expression and performance of vulnerability and vulnerable form, the volume broaches a poetics of vulnerability based on categories such as testimony, loss, unknowing, temporal disarray, and performance. On top of providing a book-length evocation of contemporary fictions of vulnerability and vulnerable form, this volume contributes significantly to considerations of the importance of Trauma Studies to Contemporary Literature.
