Identity papers : contested nationhood in twentieth-century France by Steven Ungar( )

17 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does citizenship mean? What is the process of "naturalization" one goes through in becoming a citizen, and what is its connection to assimilation? How do the issues of identity raised by this process manifest themselves in culture? These questions, and the way they arise in contemporary France, are the focus of this diverse collection. The essays in this volume range in subject from fiction and essay to architecture and film. Among the topics discussed are the 1937 Exposition Universelle; films dealing with Vichy France; François Truffaut's Histoire d'Adèle H.; the war of Algerian independence; and nation building under François Mitterrand. -- Amazon.com
Scandal and aftereffect : Blanchot and France since 1930 by Steven Ungar( )

15 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maurice Blanchot emerged after World War II as a key figure in the literary world, though he was known by some of his contemporaries in France for his contributions to interwar journals on the militant right. How did this happen? Why have literary critics, as in the recent scandals surrounding Martin Heidegger and Paul de Man, chosen to ignore or suppress Blanchot's right-wing interwar and wartime writings, focusing instead on his postwar production? Scandal and Aftereffect provides an examination of these questions, as Steven Ungar looks at 100 articles published under Blanchot's signature between 1932 and 1937 in such publications as Combat, Le Rempart, and l'Insurgé. Addressing problems of method related to the convergence of interests among historians and literary scholars, Ungar includes an overview of current debates surrounding the contested memories of Vichy France and the Holocaust. Scandal and Aftereffect will make a crucial contribution to discussions about the function of memory in the relationship of history to cultural production and about the history of history itself. --book cover

Cléo de 5 à 7 by Steven Ungar( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in 3 languages and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cleo de 5 a 7, Agnes Varda's classic work of 1962 depicts, in near real time, ninety minutes in the life of Cleo, a young woman in Paris awaiting the results of medical tests that she fears will confirm a fatal condition. The film, whose visual beauty matches its evocation of early Fourth Republic Paris, was a major point of reference for the French New Wave despite the fact that Varda, the only major female French director of the period, never considered herself a member of the core Cahiers du Cinema group of critics-turned-filmmakers." "Ungar provides a close reading of the film and situates it in its social, political and cinematic context, tracing Varda's early career as a student of art history and a photographer, the history of post-war French film, and the lengthy Algerian war to which Cleo's health concerns and ambitions to become a pop singer make her more or less oblivious. His study is the first to set a reading of Cleo's formal and technical complexity alongside an analysis of its status as a document of a specific historical moment."--Jacket
The Cambridge companion to Saussure by Carol Sanders( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ferdinand de Saussure is widely considered to be the founder of both modern linguistics and structuralism. The first to establish the structural study of language, he identified the difference between the system of language ('Langue') and the idiosyncratic speech of individuals ('Parole'), and was first to distinguish between the 'synchronic' study of language (language at a given time), and the 'diachronic' (language as it changes through time). This Companion brings together a team of leading scholars to offer a fresh new account of Saussure's work. As well as looking at his pioneering and renowned Course in General Linguistics of 1916, they consider his lesser-known early work, his more recently-discovered manuscripts, and his influence on a range of other disciplines, such as cultural studies, philosophy, literature and semiotics. With contributions by specialists in each field, this comprehensive and accessible guide creates a unique picture of the lasting importance of Saussure's thought

Constructions of minority identity in late Third Republic France by Sophie Laurence Watt( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project examines the origins and the elaboration of the Madagascar Plan, a population displacement project first developed in 1937 under a republican regime in France, in light of the discursive construction of minority identities for both Jewish and colonized subjects. By 'discursive construction' I mean the ideological shaping of ethnic and religious minority identities through different types of discourse--multiple expressions involving words and images. This project also investigates the cultural ramifications of the plan in relation to other instances of ethnic prejudice within republican ideology and culture that set the basis for attitudes that transformed minorities into constructed subjects. The focus of the research is what I have termed 'discursive convergence.' This involves the merging of two historical narratives--specifically those of Jewish immigration and of the imperialist policies of the Third Republic--and a convergence of status--the colonized and the refugee/immigrant--within universalizing processes of republican assimilation. Clearly rooted in a colonial logic, this Plan exemplifies the contradictions of the notion of 'altruistic colonization' and offers a discursive sample of the republican discourse of assimilation based on a negation of identity and the assertion of the notion of perfectibility. A close analysis of the Madagascar Plan's outcome discloses ethnic prejudices inherent in republican ideology and culture. The material I consider focuses primarily on the French version of the Madagascar Plan embedded within other instances of prejudice that transformed Jews and colonized peoples, into constructed subjects. Other instances are taken from written and visual material including exhibitions, the press, and diplomatic papers
D'un salaud l'autre : étude de la figure romanesque des Nazis et de leurs collaborateurs by Marion Duval( )

1 edition published in 2011 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My dissertation investigates significant changes in the way the Nazi occupation of France and the Holocaust have been portrayed in fiction. Two novels published in 2006 - Didier Daeninckx's Itineraire d'un Salaud Ordinaire and Jonathan Littell's Les Bienveillantes - are essential for this study. Both of these controversial books shook existing literary models concerned with the memory of the victims of the war by making the perpetrators of atrocities central characters. These two novels allow me to contextualize the full evolution of such literary actors, beginning with the work of Robert Merle and Louis-Ferdinand Celine. My dissertation examines the portrayal of the character of the salaud (villain) in French novels, arguing that, by narrating the Holocaust from the point-of-view of the perpetrators, the author is paradoxically creating another way to remember its victims. The study of literary Nazis and their French counterparts led me to explore what Hannah Arendt called the "banality of evil," a concept that is often invoked to explain an individual's conduct, but that does not fit as well when applied to a literary character's sexuality; while the Nazis and their collaborators are depicted as "ordinary men', a terminology given special meaning though the work of Christopher Browning, their sexual preferences and lives are far from ordinary

Cinematic cryptonymies : figurations of the unseen image by Ofer Eliaz( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation argues that the force of cinema hinges on unseen figurations encrypted within cinema's fundamental concepts. These figures, in themselves not of the order of the visible, are made legible through a modification of Abraham and Torok's psychoanalytic theory of cryptonymy. This theory is centered on the lexical dimension of language and the force of a taboo word of desire excluded from sites of textual production. The dissertation is both the introduction of cryptonymy to film studies and a rereading of cryptonymy in relation to the cinematic image. Applying cryptonymy's terminology to the cinema, this dissertation outlines the specters that haunt the cinematic corpus -- films, filmmakers and technical practices -- of the post-war time image

The city in island literature (Madagascar and Martinique) : toward a poetics of urban space by Fara Lee Rabenarivo( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is my conviction that Malagasy and Martinican writers have long pointed to ways of understanding these island capitals, and that they will continue to do so. Moreover, I believe that strong parallels can be drawn between recent literary productions from these two islands and the late twentieth-century emphasis on postmodern urban geographies
