11e colloque estudiantin en études françaises

les 6 et 7 avril 2006

La substitution : Équivalences, fluctuations, disproportions

Ce colloque international est destiné aux étudiants de maîtrise et de doctorat de toutes les disciplines des études françaises : linguistique, traduction, études littéraires, culturelles, cinématographiques, histoire, philosophie, etc. Nous souhaitons réfléchir sur les thèmes qui s'inscrivent dans le domaine des opérations gouvernées par des principes associatifs, sur lesquelles sont basées les théories linguistiques et littéraires. D'après Gérard Genette (Figures III, 1972), à la hauteur de celles-ci est la substitution : signifier une chose par / pour une autre ou, comme l'exprime Michel Meyer (1992), « qui dit signification dit substituabilité ». La relation entre une chose et son remplaçant peut se manifester de façon équilibrée, déséquilibrée ou en fluctuation permanente.

Nous vous invitons à considérer le procédé de substitution d'un point de vue empirique, théorique et/ou critique. Nous recherchons des communications de vingt minutes, se rapportant à toute période historique et faisant appel à toute approche méthodologique, sur des sujets tels que :

- Substitutions linguistiques morphosyntaxiques (pronominalisation, anaphores, allomorphes, paradigmes flexionnels); phonologiques/phonétiques (allophones); lexicales (néologismes, paraphrases); sociolinguistiques - variantes minoritaires vs. standard; diachronique (analogie); acquisition et bi/multilinguisme (attrition de la langue maternelle, transfert inter-linguistique, inter/intra-générationnel)

- Reconstructions et transitions littéraires (l'altérité : l'imposture, le double ou le doppelgänger; genre et identité : hybridité, métamorphose, agentivité/subjectivité); culturelles, sociohistoriques, sociopolitiques ((r)évolutions, manifestes, utopies, colonialisme); sociolinguistiques (identité et langage); traductions (interculturelles, sous-titrage)

- Rapports rhétoriques de similitude (métaphore); de contiguïté (métonymie, synecdoque); de contraste (ironie)

- (Ré)adaptations intergénériques (littérature, théâtre, cinéma, bande dessinée)

- Substitutions et rapports sémiotiques (théories des symboles et des talismans, mythologies, totems, autres formes de communication non alphabétisées - mathématiques, hiéroglyphes, autres iconographies)

PROFESSEURS INVITÉS :
Barbara Havercroft (University of Toronto)
Dorin Uritescu (York University)

Veuillez nous faire parvenir vos propositions de communication anonymes (250 mots), en français ou en anglais, avant le vendredi 6 janvier 2006, en format texte, Word, RTF, ou PDF, et accompagné d'un document séparé indiquant le titre de votre proposition et vos renseignements personnels (nom, institution, coordonnées), à l'adresse électronique suivante : french.sesdefutoronto.ca.

- CALL FOR PAPERS -

11th Annual Student Conference, French Graduate Studies

April 6th & 7th, 2006

Substitution: Equivalence, fluctuation, disproportion

This international conference brings together M.A. and Ph.D. students from all fields related to French studies: Linguistics, Translation, Literary Studies, Cultural Studies, Cinema Studies, History, Philosophy etc. We wish to reflect on themes related to associative principles that govern the operations on which literary and linguistics theories are based. According to Gérard Genette (Figures III, 1972), one of these is substitution: to signify one thing by another or, as stated by Michel Meyer (1986), ''meaning implies substitutability''. The relationship between an object and its substitute can manifest itself through equilibrium, imbalance or permanent fluctuation.

We are seeking contributions which reflect on the process of substitution from an empirical, theoretical and/or critical perspective. We welcome proposals for 20 minute papers, pertaining to any historical period and based on any methodological approach covering, but not limited to, the following sub-themes and topics:

- Linguistic substitution: morphosyntactic (pronominalisation, anaphors, allomorphs, inflectional paradigms); phonological/phonetic (allophones); lexical (neologisms, paraphrases); sociolinguistic (vernacular vs. standard variants); diachronic (analogy); acquisition and bi/multilingualism (first language attrition, inter-linguistic, inter/intra-generational transfer)

- Reconstructions and transitions: literary (alterity: imposture, the double or the doppelganger; gender and identity: hybridity, metamorphose, agentivity/subjectivity); cultural, socio-historical, or socio-political ((r)evolutions, manifestos, utopias, colonialism); sociolinguistic (identity and language); translations (intercultural, subtitles)

- Rhetorical relations of similitude (metaphor); of contiguity (metonymy, synecdoche); of contrast (irony)

- Intergeneric (re)adaptations (literature, theatre, cinema, comic strips)

- Semiotic relations and substitutions (theories of symbols and talismans, mythologies, totems, other forms of communication - mathematics, hieroglyphs, other iconographies)

Meeting Description:

Voices Throughout the Ages: Expression, Development, and Authenticity in the German Language

Keynote Address: Rainer Godel, Martin-Luther Universität Halle-Wittenberg
(Who’s talking? On the Relevance of Analytic Precision)

Throughout the course of history, humans have striven to adequately represent themselves. The capability of expression, or the lack thereof, has been a hallmark of identity, not just for individuals, but for entire cultures. The voice, both in a literal and metaphorical sense, plays a prominent role as a means of self-pronouncement in literature, linguistics, and second language acquisition. This conference seeks to explore the function of the voice in all aspects of the German language.

Literature
Texts speak to us, and the ways in which they speak are as myriad as the world itself. Due to the nearly limitless freedom afforded to an individual during the process of creation, literary and philosophical writings take many forms and have functioned as outlets for personal articulation for more than two millennia. The uniqueness of texts provides for a means of distinctive expression ranging from the voice of Socrates in Plato's dialogues to the inner monologue of Arthur Schnitzler's Leutnant Gustl to the emergence of the voice of the Other in post-colonial literature.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Oral Tradition
Identity
Memory
Narrative Theory
Minority Voices
Philosophy
Music & Art

Linguistics
Because it provides the means of producing sound, the voice is the primary instrument of language, allowing human interaction while simultaneously driving linguistic innovation in the perpetual process of transmission and reception. Furthermore, the voice acts as a means of identity among speakers, converging and diverging as people come together and drift apart. With the diverse places and situations in which it has been spoken, the linguistic examination of the German language presents a good opportunity to deepen our understanding of the voice and its role in human communication.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Sound Change
Sociolinguistics
Language Contact
Language and Immigration
Language and Identity
Language and Politics
Language Death
Standardization

Second Language Acquisition
In the foreign-language classroom, the establishment and assertion of the voice is an essential process in the language learning process. Through attempts to convey and facilitate meaning, the teacher strives to improve the learner's language ability in all areas. However, classroom communication is more than merely a sum of verbal interchanges. Depending on an array of variables such as cultural background, learning styles, and anxiety level, the voice identifies teacher and learner roles and relationships.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Subjectivity (Learner Identity)
Teacher Identity
Native/Non-Native Speaker Identity
Intersection of Identity with Language Behavior
Teacher/Learner Variables (Gender, Race, Age, etc.)
Relationships (Power, Student-Student, Student-Teacher)

Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words with a separate cover sheet indicating the author's name, address, email, primary phone number, academic affiliation and department, and the proposed title either via email to Adam Woodis at alwoodiswisc.edu (literature) or Mike Olson at molson3wisc.edu (linguistics/SLA) or via post to

Adam Woodis / Mike Olson

Housing and most meals will be provided for presenters during the conference.

Papers accepted for presentation should not exceed 20 minutes in length.
