Catastrophes, cataclysms, adaptation and survival
The new century has brought with it what seems like an endless series of disasters, both manmade and natural, throughout the Francophone World. Acts of terror in Paris, including the Charlie Hebdo and Bataclan attacks, have shaken and moved us. Moreover, cataclysmic forces of nature and global weather catastrophes that include recent flooding in France, earthquakes in Haiti, and Hurricane Irma’s direct hit on Saint Martin, have affected millions of people. As we gather in Oklahoma City, site of the 1995 Murrah Building bombing and no stranger to major meteorological events, it seems appropriate to consider these occurrences as they manifest concretely and metaphorically in contemporary French and Francophone literature, cinema, and art.
Panels, discussions, and presentations will all focus on the following lines of inquiry: What is the nature of catastrophe? What can be considered cataclysmic — both literally and metaphorically? How do catastrophes, cataclysms, adaptation and survival translate in literature? What is a literature of survival?
Registration: Faculty and General Public = $185; Students = $110
