Cercle de conversation globale Environnement et littérature - Würzburg & Abidjan

Ce groupe de discussion réunit des chercheuses et chercheurs en doctorat et postdoctorat de littératures ouest-africaines (et autres) qui intègrent les méthodes de la géocritique, de l'écocritique et de l'écopoétique dans la recherche en études littéraires. La littérature, du point de vue de ces approches des humanités environnementales, est analysée à travers le prisme de la relation entre les êtres humains et leur environnement. Le groupe vise à explorer les parallèles et les différences entre ces méthodes ainsi que la question d'une écocritique/écopoétique distinctement africaine en débattant des auteurs et autrices et des références utilisées dans des projets de recherche spécifiques et des cadres nationaux. Notre discussion vise à réunir de jeunes chercheuses et chercheurs afin d'étudier de nouvelles méthodologies dans le domaine des humanités environnementales, de construire des ponts entre les discussions nationales encore très cloisonnées et de travailler à une vue d'ensemble véritablement globale du domaine. Nous nous réjouissons d'accueillir des étudiantes et étudiants en master dans la discussion et dans le domaine plus large des humanités environnementales.  

Date: Vendredi 23 juillet

Heure: A Abidjan: 2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

             A Würzburg: 4 p.m. - 5.30 p.m.

Veuillez vous inscrire jusqu'au 22 juillet.

Global Conversation Circle Environment & Literature -  Würzburg & Abidjan

This discussion group brings together doctoral and postdoctoral scholars of West African (and other) literatures committed to integrating methods of geocriticism, ecocriticism, and ecopoetics into literary studies research. Literature, from the vantage points of these approaches in the environmental humanities, is analyzed through the lens of the relationship between human beings and their environment. The group aims to explore the parallels and differences between these methods and as well as the question of a distinctly African ecocriticism/ecopoetics by debating the authors and references used in specific research projects and national frameworks. Our discussion aims to bring emerging scholars together to investigate new methodologies in the Environmental Humanities, build bridges between national discussions, and work towards a genuinely global overview of the field. We look forward to welcoming Masters students into the discussion and the larger field of Environmental Humanities.  

Date: Friday, July 23rd

Time: In Abidjan: 2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
