Literature Confronts Science: Zola

Zola worked with the theories of heredity of his time in the Rougon-Macquart novels. But he also attempted to use his understanding of biology and thermodynamics to reform the theory of the novel in general. This course will examine these two different effects of science on literature and try to see what leads an author to undertake such a project. For a more extended description, please see http://www.wilda.org/Courses/CourseVault/Grad/Zola/Syllabus.html. Advanced undergraduates with sufficient background may register for this course with permission of the instructor.

Après Ulysse: vers une poétique de l’hospitalité en France et en Méditerranée

Departing from the Homeric paradigm of hospitality as a fundamental critical framework, “After Odysseus” questions what it means when one welcomes (or not) a stranger. After the Revolution, France declared itself a haven for refugees from all nations. In modern times, this hospitality pertained to many forms of migration and extended not only to foreign citizens but also to stateless people. Wars, colonization, economical upheavals, political vicissitudes, cultural transformations all contributed to challenge this ideal. Today, at the gates of Europe the dire fate of countless migrants perishing at sea echoes the crucial question of hospitality, not only for the southern nations (Greece, Italy) but also for France, as the culture that has sustained the most significant mutually influential relations with North Africa. Recalling different models of hospitality in the Western, Mediterranean, and Arab traditions, in this seminar we will examine the relationship between France, North Africa, and the Mediterranean at large, while challenging its common definitions (to reconsider the North-South dynamics, for instance). Using literature and philosophy, linguistics and the visual arts from canonical to popular culture, we will ponder the notions of cosmopolitanism and borders, address issues of colonization, immigration and citizenship, and language and its discontents, with “literature” as the ultimate ethos for both exclusion and togetherness.

Les écritures contemporaines aux confins des genres [Contemporary French Writing Beyond the Genres

Le système des genres littéraires consacré par la vieille trinité "roman, poésie, théâtre" ne fait plus la loi. Depuis les années 1980 ont émergé en France des formes d'écriture hybrides s'appuyant sur le montage, le recyclage, le catalogue ou encore la traduction intermédiale. Notre objet sera d'interroger le statut de l'objet littéraire et de la figure de l'écrivain dans un paysage artistico-médiatique que caractérisent la surproduction de textes et d'images et une certaine déréalisation du lien social.
