Appel à communication : « Postcolonial Mobilities in the Francophone World », Society for Francophone Postcolonial Studies (SFPS) Annual Conference (Londres, 13-14/11/2015)

vendredi 5 juin 2015, par Dominique Taurisson-Mouret

  • In association with Liverpool University Press
  • Institute of Modern Languages Research, University of London, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E « 7HU »
  • The deadline for receipt of abstracts is : 1 June 2015
  • Confirmed keynote speakers : Mireille Rosello and Kate Averis

The large-scale movement of people, objects, capital and information has radically re-shaped the Francophone world in the 21st century. However, the same processes that promote movement and mobility also produce immobility, exclusion and disconnection. This conference will ask what potential does mobility beyond territorially fixed societies hold for the Francophone world. What are the implications of individualized and/or group mobility ? What role does mobility play in relation to the creation of new transcultural and transnational identities ? And, in turn, what challenges do new social and cultural practices pose for mobility rights and questions of ‘access’ ?

We welcome theoretical reflections on Francophone Mobilities as well as proposals for papers and panels on topics including :

  • Colonialism and mobility
  • Dynamics of power
  • Travel and migration
  • Borderlands and crossings
  • Class mobility
  • Social exclusion
  • The body and movement
  • Cultural transmission
  • Digital technologies
  • Forced mobilities

Please send abstracts of 300 words plus 50-100 words of biography to Conference Secretary, Catherine Gilbert (sfpsconference2015 chez gmail.com). Papers can be in English or French.
