Appel à Contribution

La Société des Études Supérieures du Département d'Études Françaises (SESDEF) de
l'Université de Toronto lance un appel à communication aux étudiant-e-s de
maîtrise et de doctorat en études françaises.

Cette année, le comité organisateur recherche des communications de vingt
minutes portant sur le thème : Convergences / divergences : Au carrefour des
idées. Que représentent ces notions ? Quelles en sont les enjeux ?
Est-ce que les convergences entraînent forcément des divergences ?
Ou, au contraire, s'agit-il de concepts qui s'excluent mutuellement ?
Autant de questions que nous aimerions aborder lors du colloque qui se tiendra
les 8 et 9 mai 2009 à Toronto, campus centre-ville.

Ce colloque est ouvert à des communications se rapportant à toute période
historique et faisant appel à toute approche méthodologique. Les participant-e-s
sont invité-e-s à proposer des réflexions théoriques ou des études (de cas ou de
corpus) en français s'articulant autour des axes suivants :

- convergences et/ou divergences sociolinguistiques (pratiques langagières,
phonétique, emprunts, créoles, etc.)
- convergences et/ou divergences de linguistique théorique (des
traits/caractéristiques morphologiques ou phonologiques, syntaxiques ou
sémantiques, pragmatiques ou discursifs, en synchronie ou diachronie)
- convergences et/ou divergences de la linguistique expérimentale (acquisition
de la langue première/seconde, attrition, psycholinguistique, neurolinguistique)
- convergences et/ou divergences intergénérationnelles ou transgénérationnelles
en littératures
- convergences et/ou divergences disciplinaires (études sollicitant plusieurs
disciplines en relation avec la littérature et/ou la linguistique)
- convergences et/divergences de l'écrivain par rapport à lui-même ou son
lecteur (l'écrivain et son double, relation écrivain/lecteur)
- convergences et/ou divergences du texte (intertextualité, du texte à l'image)
- convergences et/ou divergences de l'autre dans la littérature (altérité,
hybridité, monstruosité, écritures migrantes)
- espaces de convergences et/ou de divergences (espace narratif, espace de la
réception, espace discursif)

Les propositions de communications de 250 à 500 mots doivent être envoyées avant
le 2 février 2009 à l'adresse suivante :

SESDEF : Colloque estudiantin
Département d'Études françaises
Université de Toronto
50, Rue St. Joseph, 2e étage
Toronto, ON, M5S 1J4
CANADA

Vous pouvez aussi envoyer vos propositions de communication par courrier
électronique à Rosa Saverino : r.saverinoutoronto.ca

Après la date butoir, le comité de sélection se réunira pour sélectionner les
propositions et un courrier électronique sera envoyé fin février aux
participants retenus.
