    “Imago Mundi”. An Overview of Metaphor: Creativity, Phraseology and Discourse

    The guiding question of the conference will therefore be to try to specify the linguistic and conceptual functioning of the metaphor. More generally, the conference will welcome any contribution aimed at bringing out the relationships between metaphor and the three concepts in question: creativity, lexicalization and discourse. The analysis of metaphor can proceed from both a diachronic and synchronic perspective and address different types of corpora and texts. The conference will pay particular attention to the analysis of different types of discourse, in particular scientific, technological, media, tourism, advertising, political, legal, philosophical, historical, literary, artistic and educational/didactic discourse.

    Échappées belles

    Correspondance de femmes surréalistes

    Où en sommes-nous près de 100 ans après la publication du Premier manifeste du surréalisme par André Breton dans notre compréhension de ce que Georgiana Colvile et Kate Conley, dans La femme s’entête (1998), ont appelé « la part du féminin » de la troisième avant-garde historique ? Est-il encore nécessaire en 2023 d’ajouter un point d’interrogation, comme les commissaires l’ont fait dans le cas de l’exposition Surréalisme au féminin ? à l’été 2023 au Musée de Montmartre ? Dans le cadre du centenaire du surréalisme en 2024, nous proposons d’organiser un colloque sur un point aveugle des études menées jusqu’à présent : la correspondance des femmes écrivains et artistes associées au mouvement d’André Breton.

    Thinking, practicing and living plurilingualism

    Third edition

    Reflecting the broad themes of this third conference, the three interconnected and complementary verbs of the title reflect an expanded sphere of investigation into language didactics and the construction of plurilingual identities, mostly linked to institutionalized places of learning such as schools or universities but also to other fields and approaches, to other professions and profiles involved in the exercise of interculturality and in the planning or management of plurilingual spaces. This international conference will bring together contributions from specialists in language didactics, didactics of plurilingualism, and language policies, grouped into three main sections for the purposes of fruitful exchange.

    Visual Dramaturgies (1500-1800)

    Scenography, Costumes and Movement on Early Modern Stages

    The interest of researchers in the visual – and material – aspects of Early modern theatre has increased in the last decade. In addition to the rather developed histories of scenography and dance, an increasing number of publications on the topic of costume, lighting and historical acting have appeared, including more technical studies interested in their production and re- production (see bibliography below). The conference aims to support this trend from a transdisciplinary point of view and to reunite researchers and practitioners interested in Western performing arts (music theatre, dance, drama) of the period between the sixteenth and the eighteenth century in order to share the latest research, compare practices in various periods, countries and theatrical forms, search for convergences and perhaps even debunk some misconceptions about these aspects of theatre.

    Confluences des inégalités sociales dans les littératures et médias francophones

    L’intersectionnalité du point de vue des études littéraires

    Le concept d’intersectionnalité est particulièrement propice à une réévaluation de l’imbrication des rapports de pouvoir entre le passé et le présent. Né à partir du constat de l’existence de discriminations multiples dans la société, ses origines remontent au Black Feminism des années 1970 qui prend en compte les interdépendances entre racisme et sexisme dans la société. Ce terme, qui a été forgé par Kimberlé Crenshaw (1989), s’inspire à la métaphore visuelle du croisement des rues. Depuis lors, la notion d’intersectionnalité décrit différentes formes de discrimination multiple dans la société. Outre les catégories de race, de classe et de genre, d’autres critères de différence et de diversité sociales, comme l’âge, la religion ou la disabilité, sont venus s’y ajouter.

    Cultural Mediation in Language Teaching: Possibilities, Challenges Or Mission Impossible?

    Revue « Verbum et Lingua : Didactique, langue et culture »

    The editorial team of Verbum et Lingua has determined that the thematic focus of this publication will be “Cultural mediation in language teaching: possibilities, challenges or mission impossible?”. Cultural mediation is understood as the search for understanding and comprehension between linguistic and cultural differences of different communities. The teaching of languages and cultures plays a role in cultural mediation through pedagogy, linguistics, intercultural studies, research and methodological tools that serve this purpose. Therefore, the journal invites specialists in cultural mediation and linguistic intermediaries, interested in facilitating the teaching of languages and cultures as a bridge to a better understanding between them, to participate with article proposals.

    Translation in Early Modern Diplomacies: Between Tradition and Innovation

    The early modern period was a time of burgeoning diplomatic activity on the European continent characterized by the spread of resident diplomacy and the appearance of peace congresses. Linguistic practices were changing dramatically as well, including Latin, German and Italian progressively overshadowed by French as a pan-European medium of diplomacy. All these developments had a considerable impact on translation in diplomacy, affecting its functioning and role in various ways. We would like to adopt a transnational and interdisciplinary viewpoint and consider the subject on the basis of new primary sources in the broad context of the development of translation and the evolution of diplomacy in the early modern period.

    The Agency of Plants in the Literature and the Arts of the French and English-Speaking Worlds (19th-21st century)

    Puissances du végéter dans la littérature et les arts des mondes francophones et anglophones (XIXe-XXIe siècle)

    The aim of this international conference is to reflect on the active role of plants in texts and visual representations in the literature and arts of the anglophone and the francophone worlds from the nineteenth century to the present day. We will think about the aesthetic, political, and epistemological implications of this form of agency and analyse the way in which plants act upon and with the human world from an anthrodecentric perspective. We will look at how plants can organise or disorganise our world, call into question established truths, and shape power relations, including political ones.

    Armenian Diaspora(s) in Motion: Places, Stakeholders and Practices in the 21st Century

    Since diaspora studies emerged in the 1980s, the Armenian dispersion has played a prominent role in the scholarly literature seeking to understand and classify the nature, forms, and effects of diasporas as social formations. However, 40 years after the rise of diaspora studies, one has to admit that far from offering a stable paradigm, the Armenian diaspora (an expression that should be used in the plural) has undergone numerous transformations. The objective of this 2-day conference will be to reflect on these contemporary reshapings of the Armenian diaspora(s), revealing their diversity and the new dynamics at work.

    Dreams of the Future

    As the research training group “European Dream Cultures” at Saarland University enters its ninth and final year, we would like our concluding conference to look not only back but also ahead, in focussing on future content of dreaming in literature, art, theatre, film, and music. Key questions include: What types of futures do artistic dreams of the future envision? Are they utopian or dystopian? Are they marked as dreams experienced during sleep, or are they imaginings of the future that are dreamlike in nature but anchored in the waking world? How do they connect to the present or the past, and to which version of these temporalities? What function do they assume within different works? To what extent do religious, political, or epistemological discourses influence these artistic dreams of the future?
