  • Thinking the Postcolonial in French: History, Politics, Literature - Full-day conference

  • Mar 26, 2010 from 5:00am to 3:00pm
  • Location: Maison Francaise of Columbia University
  • Description: Until recently the term “postcolonial” and the concepts associated with this notion have not enjoyed much resonance in the French and Francophone contexts. Lately, however, “postcolonialism” has become the object of an intense debate. Notably, several major “postcolonial” texts have been translated from English to French. In this international and multidisciplinary conference, historians, political scientists, sociologists, literary theorists, and philosophers from France, the US, North and sub-Saharan Africa will reflect on these debates, map out the complex trajectories of the notion of “postcolonial” in the francophone context, and question the potential of this category to illuminate the political, social, and cultural legacies of French colonialism.

    Conference agenda:

    9:00 am: Introductory Remarks
    Philip Watts (Columbia University), Madeleine Dobie (Columbia University), Emmanuelle Saada (Columbia University)

    9:30 am-12:00 am: Translating Postcolonialism

  • Description: Presenters:Randa J. Duvick, Ph.D., Associate Professor of French, Chair, Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, Valparaiso University, INMargot Steinhart, Ph.D., President of the Alliance Française of North Shore, IllinoisAujourd’hui, aux États-Unis, des filières de français disparaissent dans des écoles au profit du chinois ou de l’espagnol. Les enseignants sont quelquefois démunis face à ces situations et manquent de matériel et d’idées pour mettre en place de véritables actions de promotion. Celles-ci peuvent toutefois avoir beaucoup de succès auprès des élèves et revitaliser leurs filières. Cet atelier a pour objectif principal de présenter et de donner aux enseignants de français un kit de promotion clé en main : le site Wiki proposant plus de 170 documents pour la promotion du français dans les écoles et un dvd « The world speaks French : video stories » (développé par la American Association of Teachers of French, l’université Northwestern, l’Ambassade de France aux US
