Double séminaire “A Theory of Racialized Organizations” / “The Flint Water Coup: Debt at the End of Democracy”Double séminaire

Lundi 13 mai 2024, 18h, Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3, salle 126 Saint-Charles 1 et en visioconférence.

Séminaire organisé par Hervé Mayer dans le cadre de l’axe « Faire commun » d’EMMA.

Victor Ray (U. of Iowa, PMU) ” A Theory of Racialized Organizations” 

Abstract:
Organizational theory scholars typically see organizations as race-neutral bureaucratic structures, while race and ethnicity scholars have largely neglected the role of organizations in the social construction of race. The theory developed in this talk bridges these subfields, arguing that organizations are racial structures—cognitive schemas connecting organizational rules to social and material resources. I begin with the proposition that race is constitutive of organizational foundations, hierarchies, and processes. Next, I develop four tenets: (1) racialized organizations enhance or diminish the agency of racial groups; (2) racialized organizations legitimate the unequal distribution of resources; (3) Whiteness is a credential; and (4) the decoupling of formal rules from organizational practice is often racialized. I argue that racialization theory must account for how both state policy and individual attitudes are filtered through—and changed by—organizations. Seeing race as constitutive of organizations helps us better understand the formation and everyday functioning of organizations. Incorporating organizations into a structural theory of racial inequality can help us better understand stability, change, and the institutionalization of racial inequality. I conclude with an overview of internal and external sources of organizational change and a discussion of how the theory of racialized organizations may set the agenda for future research.

Bio: Victor Ray’s research applies critical race theory to classic sociological questions. He is currently working on two book manuscripts: a project focused on race and organizational theory and an edited volume (co-edited with Jennifer Mueller) on race and sociological theory writ large. His work has been published in the American Sociological Review, American Behavioral Scientist, Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Contexts, Ethnic and Racial Studies, The Journal of Marriage and Family, Sociology of Race and Ethnicity and Sociological Theory. In addition to this research, Victor is also an active public scholar, publishing commentary in outlets such as The Washington Post, Newsweek, and Boston Review. Victor’s work has been funded by the Ford Foundation, and the National Science Foundation, among others.

Louise Seamster (U. of Iowa) “The Flint Water Coup: Debt at the End of Democracy”

Abstract:
Ten years after Flint’s fateful 2014 switch to treating the corrosive Flint River for drinking water, there is broad agreement that the Flint Water Crisis constituted a “clear case of environmental injustice.” But there is surprisingly little research into why the crisis happened. Did that designation obscure more than it illuminated?
In this talk, I discuss findings from my forthcoming book, an archival ethnography built around a 455,000-page dataset of public government emails from Flint’s crisis (soon to be released by my team as a searchable database). Drawing on a relational framework of “creative extraction” (Purifoy and Seamster 2021), I focus on resource flows, debt relationships, the invalidation of independent governance, and political narratives. Instead of cross-organizational failure, my investigation shows a largely successful coalitional project to redistribute water resources and political control in Michigan. Flint’s water switch to the river was central to this project. My findings will help us understand how water financialization is shaping water governance, and how these dynamics reproduce racial inequality in access to clean, affordable water.

Bio: Louise Seamster is an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminology and the program of African American Studies at the University of Iowa. She is also a Research Fellow in the Social and Education Policy Research Program at the University of Iowa’s Public Policy Center, and a Nonresident Fellow in Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution. Her research examines contemporary mechanisms for the reproduction of racial and economic inequality.

“Narrative Transfers: From the Literary to the Graphic”Nancy Pedri (Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada)Laurence Petit (Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3, France)

Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3, France, jeudi 25 avril 2024

The one-day international research workshop will be held at the Université Paul Valéry-Montpellier 3 on April 25 of this year and will examine the impact on characters when literary texts are adapted into comic form. Although several scholars have engaged in the study of comics adaptation, the questions arising from the adaptation of a literary character through its embodiment in a comics storyworld have been grossly overlooked.

Through our introduction, five presentations and guided discussions, and a concluding discussion, we hope to explore:

  1. how embodiment in a comics narrative transforms literary characters and to what effect
  2. how a character’s embodiment in a comics narrative impacts the reader’s experience and understanding of the work
  3. if and how continuity is achieved when literary characters are made to inhabit new temporal and spatial dimensions in the comics different storyworld
  4. the impact on interpretation when literary characters have been adapted into comics more than once.

Séminaire (Inter) Agir: “Silences Within and Without the Self. D.H.Lawrence and T.S. Eliot” Kate McLoughlin (Professor of English Literature, University of Oxford)

mardi 9 avril, 18h, St Charles, salle 126

Aldous Huxley called the Twentieth Century ‘the Age of Noise’.  The novelist D. H. Lawrence and the poet T. S. Eliot both listened beyond the noise, to the silence.  Lawrence heard the silences of the body, of power teetering on the brink of fascism.  Eliot heard the silences of spiritual emptiness and of union with the divine.  Both writers turned to non-western religions—Buddhism, Hinduism, the religion of the Aztecs—for illumination.  This talk explores the mystical, thunderous and serene silences that permeate their prose and verse.


Bio (https://www.english.ox.ac.uk/people/professor-kate-mcloughlin ) :
I am both a specialist in post-1900 literature with a particular expertise in war writing and a trans-historicist.

Currently, I am writing a literary history of silence, funded by a Major Research Fellowship from the Leverhulme Trust.  Over eleven centuries of English Literature, silence has had many guises and many hiding-places.  My book will guide readers on a tour taking in the silent states of exile on icy seas described in Anglo-Saxon poems, the hushed intimacy of medieval lullabies, exalted states of blissful union with the divine, the tongue-tied lovers of the Renaissance, spell-binding silent scenes in Shakespeare, encrypted expressions of same-sex love, reason-based reticence, the Romantic sublime, the surprising silences of the garrulous realist novel, the great epics of inarticulable grief, wordless communings with Nature, Modernist depictions of interiority, the failure of words in the face of two World Wars, experiments with visual and acoustic silences in contemporary prose, poetry and drama, and searches for silence in our own Age of Pings.  In the process, I am excavating the intellectual and cultural ideas behind silence and trying to work out how literary silences are formally created.

In tandem with this literary history, I am editing an anthology of poems about and evoking silence, Silence Please, for Bodleian Publishing. I am also thinking about methodologies for theorizing textual silences.  With the historian Suzan Meryam Kalayci and the Ritblat Professor of Mindfulness and Psychological Science, Willem Kuyken, I convene the Silence Hub (SH), an inter-disciplinary, public-facing network for scholars interested in silence. In 2017, I held a Knowledge Exchange Fellowship at the Oxford Quaker Meeting, beginning to learn about silence, spirituality and poetry.

My interest in silence arose from the my work on war writing.  My most recent monograph, Veteran Poetics: British Literature in the Age of Mass Warfare, 1790-2015 (2018), reads the literary war veteran in the literary-philosophical contexts of the age of modern, mass, industrialized warfare, illustrating how ex-combatants have been deployed by authors from William Wordsworth to J. K. Rowling to explore questions relating to being, knowing and communicating.  What can be recovered from the past? Do people stay the same over time? Are there right times of life at which to do certain things? Is there value in experience? How can wisdom be shared?  The final chapter looks at the figure of the silent war veteran – the former fighter who, against expectations, refuses or is unable to tell stories about the wars he has been in – and suggests that this expresses an epistemological crisis central to understanding post-Enlightenment modernity. 

My previous publications include Authoring War: The Literary Representation of War from the Iliad to Iraq (2011), Martha Gellhorn: The War Writer in the Field and in the Text (2007) and, as co-editor and editor, The First World War: Literature, Culture, Modernity (2018), Writing War, Writing Lives (2017) and The Cambridge Companion to War Writing (2009). I am the editor of The Modernist Party (2013), which includes my own essay on why J. Alfred Prufrock is so afraid of going to a tea-party, and co-editor of Memory, Mourning, Landscape (2010) and Tove Jansson Rediscovered (2007). I am also the editor of British Literature in Transition: 1960-1980 – Flower Power, which includes an essay by me on light effects in Philip Larkin’s poetry. I have also published articles and chapters on many other modern and contemporary writers, including Adnan al-Sayegh, Mary Borden, T. S. Eliot, Ford Madox Ford, Allen Ginsberg, Henry James, Tony Kushner, D. H. Lawrence, Dunya Mikhail, Iris Murdoch, Dorothy Richardson, Philip Roth, Edith Wharton and Virginia Woolf.  My articles have appeared in journals such as Critical InquiryEssays in CriticismJournal of Modern Literature and Textual Practice. I regularly review contemporary fiction for the Times Literary Supplement.   

In 2017-18, I co-convened a Mellon-Sawyer international seminar series, Post-War: Commemoration, Reconstruction, Reconciliation from which arose On Commemoration: Global Reflections upon Commemorating War (2020).  To foster scholarly collaboration and collegiality in the field of war representation, in 2010 I co-founded the War and Representation Network (WAR-Net), with Professor Gill Plain of the University of St. Andrews.  WAR-Net now has over 250 members across six continents. With Gill, I am also co-General Editor of the monograph series Edinburgh Critical Studies in War & Culture. We welcome book proposals from scholars at all stages of their careers.  I also founded and co-convene the Writing War research cluster here in the Oxford English Faculty. 

I am particularly interested in supervising dissertations on literature and silence (any aspects), and am also open to proposals on war writing, modernism and post-1900 literature more generally.


Lily Robert-Foley (MCF, EMMA) : “The history and future of an alternative, oppositional translation practice.” Mardi 12 mars 2024 – Site Saint-Charles salle 126

The threat of machine translation has given way to an alternative, experimental practice of translation that reflects upon and hijacks traditional paradigms. In much the same way that photography initiated a break in artistic practices with the threat of an absolute fidelity to the real, machine translation has paradoxically liberated human translators to err, to diverge, to tamper with the original, blurring creation and imitation with cyborg collage and appropriation. Seven chapters reimagine seven classic “procedures” of translation theory and pedagogy: borrowing, calque, literal translation, transposition, modulation, equivalence, and adaptation, updating them for the material political and poetic concerns of the contemporary era. Each chapter combines reflections from translation studies and experimental literature with practical guides, sets of experimental translation “procedures” to try at home or abroad, in the classroom, the laboratory, the garden, the dance hall, the city, the kitchen, the library, the shopping center, the supermarket, the train, the bus, the airplane, the post office, on the radio, on your phone, on your computer, and on the internet.

Séminaire EMMA/(Inter)Agir – mardi 26 septembre 2023 18h, site St Charles.

Jeroen Vandaele (Univ. Ghent) nous invitera à réfléchir aux conditions dans lesquelles l’humour grinçant peut être reçu et traduit. Sa présentation est intitulée : « Cringe Across Communities. Understanding and Translating The Office with Erving Goffman ».

 

*****************

Cringe Across Communities. Understanding and Translating The Office with Erving Goffman 

Erving Goffman provides a brilliant ‘micro-sociological’ analysis of how individuals manage their image in front of others. In public, individuals intend to promote what they think is a positive self-image and therefore conceal image-incompatible information and supply image-enhancing information. Moreover, image enhancement is most effective when it seems a natural and unconscious expression that individuals give off, not a conscious effort to make an impression on others. When these mechanisms fail, there is face loss, the individual may experience embarrassment, and become the object of comedy. If there is antagonism between the embarrassed and the audience, the felt comedy is usually a form of Schadenfreude. However, the embarrassment may also carry over on the audience, which leads to second-hand embarrassment—cringe— and the mixed emotion called cringe comedy. In this paper, I show that both Schadenfreude and cringe are dominant emotive effects in the sitcom The Office (British and American versions), I investigate how these two distinct emotions come about, and how they fare in translation. 

Jeroen Vandaele teaches courses in literary translation and Hispanic literatures at Ghent University. Earlier he was professor of Spanish at the University of Oslo, teaching courses in poetics, translation studies, and discourse analysis. In Fall 2023 he is a Mare Balticum Fellow at the University of Rostock (Germany), for the domain of translation studies. He is the author of Estados de Gracia, which is a monograph on the censorship, translation, and influence of Billy Wilder in Francoist Spain (published by Brill in 2015) and, more recently, of Translation and Big Details, a monograph in press at Routledge New York. Among the volumes he edited or co-edited are Cognitive Poetics (Mouton de Gruyter) and Translating Humour (a special issue of The Translator). In the domain of humor research, one of his biggest efforts is the double essay “Narrative Humor,” published in Poetics Today

18h QUIPU PROCEDURE Conférence de Jena OSMAN
Jena Osman écrit un nouveau recueil d’essais-poèmes intitulé « A Textile Coincidence ».
Quipu Procedure suit certaines des tendances du projet en reliant l’ancienne technologie de collecte de données du quipu utilisée par la poète-artiste Cecilia Vicuña à des algorithmes contemporains qui collectent et trient les données produites par nos corps à des erreurs créatives dans les algorithmes de traduction automatique. Qu’est-ce qu’un quipu a en commun avec un métier à tisser, et qu’est-ce qu’un métier à tisser a en commun avec un ordinateur ? Quelles sont les affinités entre la collecte de données ancienne et l’exploration de données contemporaine ? Est-il possible d’écouter la machine, de fouiller les algorithmes et d’y trouver de la poésie ? (La conférence est donnée en anglais.)

19h15 POETRY TALKS
