    La "guerre des épistèmes". Le rapport entre littérature et science dans la fiction francophone contemporaine
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    APFUCC - Congrès 2020, 30 mai - 2 juin 2020 Université Western, London, Ontario, Canada ATELIER 10 La « guerre des épistèmes » : le rapport entre littérature et science dans la fiction francophone contemporaine Le rapport entre littérature et science est sans doute l'un des plus épineux qui soit, ces deux modes de connaissance du monde étant généralement perçus comme diamétralement opposés.

    Imperial Environments: From Tropical Climes to Contemporary Crisis (ACLA 2020)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Before the term “climate” became irrevocably associated with the modifiers “change” and “catastrophe,” it had long circulated in the works of thinkers, from Hippocrates down to Montesquieu, as the factor that determined the character of peoples and nations. By extension, climate was understood to indicate which lands were ripe for imperial conquest, and which peoples were suited to conquering and which to being conquered. In short, the history of the discourse of climate is a deeply imperial...

    World Literature: Noise and Silences (ACLA 2020)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Current accounts of world literature repeatedly call attention to the decisive power of major literary languages to determine the structure of the system. However illuminating or accurate, these accounts inevitably move the focus away from languages that have not attained a comparable level of prestige, or that are not hegemonic.

    Global Soundscapes: Music, Politics, and Literature (ACLA 2020)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s Essai sur l’origine des langues traces how language once filled with song and emotion becomes divested of meaning, distorted by commerce and conventions to mere rational forms of rhetoric, devoid of its original musical inflection. The fall of language and music comes to embody moral degradation in the pursuit of private interests, away from the most universal and energetic initial language and song, that of le cri de la nature . Robert Wokler eloquently...

    Performing Text in Music and Theater: Interdisciplinary Readings and Conversations (ACLA 2020)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This seminar will provide a forum for conversation about text and performance in the interdisciplinary contexts of music and theater, including opera, drama, musical theater, song, and staged or dramatic reading. Performances in these genres are by definition both animated and challenged by their intermedial identities; interdisciplinary discourse similarly both thrives on, and is made prickly by, these same tensions. Our seminar will attempt to navigate some of this interdisciplinary territory...
