2e APPEL DE COMMUNICATIONS:

11e colloque estudiantin en études françaises

Thème : ''La substitution : Équivalences, fluctuations, disproportions''

Organisateur : la Société des Études supérieures du Département d'Études
françaises (S.E.S.D.E.F) de l'Université de Toronto

Date et lieu du colloque : les 6 et 7 avril 2006 à l'Université de Toronto, Canada

Date limite pour la réception des propositions : le 6 janvier 2006

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)

Barbara Havercroft (University of Toronto)

2nd CALL FOR PAPERS:

11th Annual Student Conference, French Graduate Studies

Theme: ''Substitution: Equivalence, fluctuation, disproportion''

Organisers: The ''Société des Études supérieures du Département d'Études
françaises'' S.E.S.D.E.F.)at the University of Toronto

Time and place: April 6th & 7th, 2006 at the University of Toronto

Dedline to submit a proposal: January 6th, 2006

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)
