Thinking Space in Cinema and Literature
Penser l’espace dans le cinéma et la littérature

During this international colloquium, participants will be exploring the question of the relations between cinema and literature through the prism of space on the basis of three approaches:
- The Geography of literary and cinematic creation examines the spatial context in which works are produced from a historical, social and cultural point of view;
- Geocriticism explores spatial narratives as the result of perception and the substance of an imaginary. would study the relations between space, forms and genres, both literary and cinematic;
- Geopoetics studies the relations between space, forms and genres, both literary and cinematic. The semiotic perspective of texts takes on spatial modalities: typography and the materiality of the book considered as object, spectatorship and modalities of the apparatus.
