Ce volume regroupe des articles – ainsi qu’un entretien réalisé avec l’auteure – issus d’une conférence internationale sur l’écriture de Marie Nimier, intitulée Marie Nimier. Absence et Perte, qui s’est tenue les 7 et 8 juillet 2014 sur le campus parisien de l’Université du Kent (Paris School of Arts and Culture). Analysant les rapports entre texte et image, lecture et écriture, mot et geste, ou encore spatialité et perte, ces articles sont autant de mises en résonance avec le travail créateur foisonnant et multiple de Marie Nimier. Autour de ce double thème de l’absence et de la perte, les chercheurs réunissent des analyses et des réflexions variées et originales, portant tout autant sur des considérations autour de la figure de l’auteur et l’acte d’écrire, la figure paternelle, l’enfance, la sexualité, le genre et gender, que sur les rapports entre humains et animaux, la psychanalyse, l’importance des couleurs ou encore la synesthésie.

Dr Carine Fréville est chargée de cours à l’Université du Kent (Paris School of Arts and Culture). Sa thèse de doctorat porte sur les représentations plurielles du traumatisme chez Marie Darrieussecq, Malika Mokeddem et Lorette Nobécourt. Elle a publié des articles sur Marie Darrieussecq, Lorette Nobécourt, Amélie Nothomb et Malika Mokeddem.

Dr Ana Maria de Medeiros est Directrice du Modern Language Centre à King’s College, London.  Elle s’intéresse surtout à l’écriture autobiographique et a publié un premier livre sur l’œuvre de Marguerite Yourcenar ainsi que plusieurs collections d’essais analysant, entre autres, les écrits de Marguerite Yourcenar, Assia Djebar et Amélie Nothomb.

Special Dossier for Women In French Studies 2018 on Andrée Chedid (1920-2011).

Andrée Chedid was a great poet, novelist, short stories writer, and playwright. She was a prolific author, with no less than twenty-three volumes of poetry, seventeen novels, six plays, seven volumes of short stories, writing for the youth, and at least one memoir. She was also a terrific mentor to other poets, writers, and women. Some of her poetry has been translated into English, as well as several novels and plays by scholars and writers, including some WIF members. Several WIF members have written about Andrée Chedid’s work, including Evelyne Accad, Marlène Barsoum, Carmen Boustani, Judith Cochran, Anne Larson, and Christiane Makward, among others. Yet, Chedid’s oeuvre remains largely unknown and there exist few scholarly collectives about her work, in spite of the significance of her writing.

This special dossier of Women In French Studies 2018 (volume26) will therefore explore Andrée Chedid’s place in French literature and culture and in Middle Eastern francophone literature. Chedid, of Lebanese-Egyptian origin, has written extensively about Egypt and Lebanon, exploring topics such as civil war, loss, friendship, love, otherness, being multi-cultural, sometimes displacing contemporary urgent issues in time as in Les marches de sable (1981). Women are often the main protagonists of her stories, and her writings often explores the significance of gender, yet what was her influence on women’s writing? The significance of her writing on war and violence, of how she writes on war and peace, on gender relations, on children, on memory and Alzheimer, her place in poetic movements and in the world of theater, and the role of rewriting short stories into novels, are possible topics, yet submissions are not limited to them. Original essays on various aspects of Chedid’s writings are welcome. This dossier provides a great opportunity to introduce Andrée Chedid and new scholarship on her work and we invite scholars at all stages of their career to contribute.

Complete articles should be submitted to Joëlle Vitiello at vitiello@macalester.edu by December 1, 2017. Manuscripts in English or in French should be between 4500 and 5000 words in length (double spaced, including notes and bibliography). All submissions will benefit from a blind peer-review process.
