Edited by Marc Quaghebeur

ces deux tomes constituent une nouvelle approche transversale des
littératures francophones. Et ce, par le biais d’un nouveau couple
conceptuel : Résilience et Modernité.
Le processus de résilience ne se limite pas au traitement des cas de
détresse individuels mais se révèle pertinent dans l’analyse des textes
littéraires. Boris Cyrulnik insiste toutefois sur la différence entre parole
et écriture.
La modernité accompagna la création et l’expansion de la civilisation
industrielle. Elle s’y profila avec un très net caractère d’intransitivité.
Elle fit partie des chocs et traumas inhérents aux processus coloniaux.
Selon les pays concernés et leur Histoire, elle génère des types de
résilience. Et d’autant plus que, pour tous, la France incarna longtemps
le paradigme de la modernité
Un grand nombre d’oeuvres venues des Francophonies du Nord,
d’ Afrique ou des Caraïbes font l’objet des analyses de ces deux
volumes. Elles plongent aussi bien dans les génocides que dans les
guerres de libération, dans le sort fait aux femmes ou aux immigrés,
que dans les formes de ré-habitation de la langue française.
Ces deux tomes contribuent donc à une perception renouvelée de
l’aujourd’hui et des Francophonies culturelles mais aussi au travail sur
La Mémoire, l’Histoire, l’Oubli cher à Paul Ricoeur.

Bitches Unleashed

Performance and Embodied Politics in Favela Funk

Series:

Raquel Moreira

This book challenges white and Western feminist approaches to embodied politics, or the use of the body in everyday enactments of resistance, while mapping transgressive performances of femininities by the funkeiras, marginalized women and transfeminine people of color artists in Brazilian favela funk. Often studied from a white feminist perspective, embodied politics reflects debates about agency and structural change that are generally applicable to white women in the West. Concurrently, studies of femininity tend to universalize experiences of gender oppression encountered by white women to women across the globe. In this work, the author offers a transnational perspective on the performative force of embodied politics as a possible means to disrupt white, classist heteropatriarchal structures that oppress particularly poor women and transfeminine people of color in Brazil. This project has a threefold goal: first, it challenges the theoretical shortcomings of white feminist approaches to embodied politics, providing instead a transfeminista take on the concept. Secondly, this project aims to shed light on how traditional methodological approaches have hindered nuanced understandings of women and people of color and their performances. Third and finally, by challenging and re-envisioning the potential of embodied politics from a transnational perspective, the text intends to contribute to the field of critical intercultural communication’s growing but still limited research around bodies and performance, especially of those who are marginalized in global contexts.

Mentoring and Communication

Theories and Practices

Edited by Diana Trebing and Ahmet Atay

Although mentoring occupies a paramount role in higher education and is part of a faculty’s expected duties, nowadays increasingly so, it is not an area to which graduate schools pay close attention. There is no formalized training and faculty and graduate students alike are expected to know how to mentor effectively once they graduate or start a new teaching or administrative position. This book tackles two interrelated issues: the role and importance of mentoring in the communication discipline as well as critical/cultural studies and using critical communication to illuminate the ways in which students and junior faculty among others are mentored in higher education. The authors of these chapters present a position or an issue in regards to mentoring students and faculty or the lack of it in higher education. Their goal is to generate a scholarly discussion by utilizing qualitative and narrative-based research approaches and critical and cultural perspectives to promote awareness about the importance of mentoring. Additionally, the authors highlight some of the important issues in mentoring as a form of critical communication pedagogy and present some guidelines, ideas, and examples to mentor more effectively. This edited book will be helpful for various audiences. First, it will provide guidance for graduate students, junior and senior faculty members who are asked to mentor others at various stages of their academic careers. Second, it will help students and faculty who are currently trying to identify and work with mentors. And third, it gives ideas on what to do and not to do in successful mentor-mentee relationships.

Edited by Maria B. Hopkins and Rachel Bailey Jones

Centers for teaching and learning all face the same dilemma: In a context where faculty are not required to partake in our services, how do we provide transformative learning experiences to which faculty willingly give their limited time? The answer, Maria B. Hopkins and Rachel Bailey Jones propose, is to move away from a workshop model of faculty development and toward a model that supports the kinds of connections among faculty that lead to self-sustaining growth and development. This edited book provides a breadth of innovative alternatives to fixed-schedule faculty development workshops that faculty are rarely attending due to the increasing complexity of their professional lives. The audience for this book is higher education administrators, faculty, and staff responsible for faculty development related to teaching and learning. Each chapter provides a detailed description of a faculty development initiative in practice that provide opportunities for creativity, adaptability, and collaboration among faculty. Public, private, and community colleges, small and large, research-focused and teaching-focused institutions are represented. The editors have taken on this project because this is the resource they wish they had when they began their work as directors of the teaching lab at their institution.

Helena Dettmer

In his 1995 Teubner edition, J. B. Hall separates Tristia 1.5, 1.9, 3.4, 4.4, 5.2, and 5.7 into two poems. One reviewer of Hall’s edition is highly critical of the editor for not justifying the separation of these poems despite the fact the divisions have manuscript support. Because of the sorry state of the textual transmission of Ovid's five books of Tristia, it is sometimes difficult to determine the beginning and end of an individual poem if that poem resumes thematically and verbally where the previous poem concludes. The aim of this study is to show that definitive evidence can be offered to justify division of these six elegies into two poems. Structure combined with theme serves as an analytical tool that defines the beginning and end of the twelve literary pieces under consideration and highlights their artistry. Resolution of the issue of unity enhances our interpretation of the independent poems and our understanding of the complex interplay among poems within each poetry-book. The careful and often brilliant craftsmanship of the poems and of the books in which they appear reaffirms that Ovid’s repeated deprecation of the quality of his literary work composed during his period of exile in the Black Sea region is simply a pose to attract sympathy and support from his Roman audience.

The Language of Feminine Duty

Articulating Gender, Culture, and Covert Policy in Modern Japan

Rika Saito

This book examines "women’s speech" as a policy of constructs expressed in official and unofficial discourse from the 1880s to the 1920s in Japan. It analyzes specific language policies that were incorporated through governmental gender policy to perpetuate "women’s speech," asymmetrical gendered speech styles and concepts in the Japanese language. It also seeks to develop cross-cultural approaches to language and gender theories initiated in the United States and Europe by proposing new concepts of language policy. This work contributes to ongoing interdisciplinary scholarship on gender, language, and policy by reconsidering the relationship between the Japanese "national language" and "women’s speech."

Las revoluciones hispánicas y la historiografía contemporánea

Historia de las ideas, liberalismo e Ilustración en el mundo hispánico durante la Era de las revoluciones

Series:

Roberto Breña

La independencia de las Trece Colonias y la Revolución Francesa han ocupado un lugar privilegiado en el estudio de la Era de las revoluciones. Los nueve capítulos de este libro plantean colocar a la revolución liberal española, al liberalismo hispánico y a las independencias hispanoamericanas en un lugar destacado en el estudio de dicha era. Esto lo hace el autor mediante un análisis de varios aspectos políticos e intelectuales del mundo hispánico del primer cuarto del siglo XIX que muestran su riqueza, su peculiaridad, su complejidad y sus aportaciones a la historia de las ideas en Occidente. En resumen, el libro que el lector tiene en sus manos proporciona argumentos para concluir que no se puede seguir ignorando a las revoluciones hispánicas cuando se escribe historia política o historia intelectual sobre la Era de las revoluciones.

Fuera de algunos especialistas, muy pocas personas saben que el término "liberal" con una connotación política surgió en el mundo hispánico al final de la primera década del siglo XIX. Concretamente, en las Cortes de Cádiz, una asamblea de representantes españoles e hispanoamericanos que se reunieron en ese puerto español entre 1810 y 1814. Esa asamblea bi-continental y la constitución que elaboraron (la Constitución de Cádiz o Constitución de 1812) consideraron como ciudadanos a los indígenas de América y el documento era el más abierto que hasta entonces se había redactado en términos de participación electoral. Además, tuvo repercusiones sobre varias regiones italianas, Portugal, Rusia y Noruega, así como, por supuesto, sobre los territorios hispanoamericanos, los cuales pronto extendieron la revolución hispánica al Nuevo Continente y optaron por una vía propia hacia la modernidad política que surgió en Occidente durante la Era de las revoluciones.

Le retour de la puissance céréalière russe

Sociologie des marchés du blé 2000-2018

Series:

Caroline Dufy

Fondement de la civilisation occidentale, le blé est l’une des céréales les plus échangées au monde. Sa part prépondérante dans l’alimentation humaine lui confère le statut de denrée stratégique. La Russie en a fait un instrument de sa reconquête des marchés céréaliers, en se hissant, sur des marchés mondiaux instables, au rang de concurrent agricole majeur pour l’Europe. La renaissance de la puissance agricole russe s’appuie également sur d’autres produits, tels que le lait, la viande, ou les oléagineux. Comment s’est opérée cette mondialisation agricole, quels en sont les acteurs et les conditions ? Telles sont les questions centrales abordées par cet ouvrage.

Depuis les années 2000, des évolutions notables ont marqué le monde agricole russe, au premier rang desquelles l’adhésion du pays à l’Organisation Mondiale du Commerce et l’adoption de l’embargo sur les produits alimentaires occidentaux décidé dans le sillage de la crise ukrainienne. Cet ouvrage invite le lecteur au cœur de cette mutation du monde céréalier en suivant ceux qui de près ou de plus loin font les marchés céréaliers : agriculteurs, négociants, syndicalistes agricoles, experts agricoles, mais aussi élus locaux et éleveurs et industriels. Il écoute leurs voix, montre leur travail, donne à voir leurs intérêts et leurs rationalités.

La démarche adoptée se situe au croisement de plusieurs mondes : le monde rural, la politique et le commerce international. Elle fait dialoguer différentes échelles : celle des politiques de l’Etat, avec celle des territoires et celles des rationalités productives individuelles. Ce décryptage permet de restituer des cohérences au-delà des paradoxes apparents entre stratégie volontariste de sécurité alimentaire, politique des contre sanctions et plaidoyer pour le retour de la puissance céréalière.

Le suivi patient de la marchandise blé, donne ainsi à comprendre les évolutions de valeurs et les priorités sociales, les tensions que font naître la définition d’un bien commun et des aléas qui l’accompagnent.
