17 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maps and movies tell their viewers where they are situated, what they are doing, and, to a strong degree, who they are. In this groundbreaking work, eminent scholar Tom Conley establishes the ideological power of maps in classic, contemporary, and avant-garde cinema to shape the imaginary and mediated relations we hold with the world

The self-made map : cartographic writing in early modern France by Tom Conley( )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 907 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richly illustrated throughout, The Self-Made Map combines studies of art, geography, history, literature, and printing to show a clear historical transformation, along the way linking geographical discoveries, printing processes, and political awareness. Conley's provocative analysis discloses how early modern printed literature and cartography worked together to crystallize broader issues engaging the then emergent status of cultural identity, nation, and individuality."--
Identity papers : contested nationhood in twentieth-century France by Steven Ungar( )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 846 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. --
An errant eye : poetry and topography in early modern France by Tom Conley( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An Errant Eye studies how topography developed literary and visual form in early modern France. Arguing for a ‘new poetics of space’ ranging throughout French Renaissance poetry, prose, and cartography, Tom Conley performs dazzling readings of maps, woodcuts, and poems to plot a topographical shift in the late Renaissance in which space, subjectivity, and politics fall into crisis."--

The graphic unconscious in early modern French writing by Tom Conley( Book )

21 editions published between 1992 and 2018 in English and French and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book studies the importance of typographic shapes in French Renaissance literature in the context of psychoanalysis and of the history of printed writing. Focusing on the poetry of Clement Marot, Rabelais's Gargantua, Ronsard's sonnets, and the Essais of Montaigne, it argues that printed characters can either supplement or betray what they appear to articulate, revealing compositional patterns that do not appear to be under authorial control, and fostering the elaboration of signs between their context and the reader or spectator. Professor Conley shows that graphic forms are crucial for the development of complex interactions of verbal and visual materials in the early years of print-culture. Marot and Rabelais articulate a religious programme through the letter; Ronsard conflates the arts in poetry of the French court in the middle years of the sixteenth century; Montaigne stages the birth of the self in print and inscribes political dimensions in the relationship between the letter and meaning. This unconscious, proto-Freudian writing has complex historical relations with verbal and visual practices in the media of the twentieth century
Film hieroglyphs by Tom Conley( )

5 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parages by Jacques Derrida( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together four essays by the author on the fictions of Maurice Blanchot. "Pace not(s)" as well as the 1986 introduction to the French edition of the book, appear here in English for the first time. This was a breakthrough publication in the analysis of Blanchot, a notoriously difficult writer. It explores a variety of questions, including the limits of genre, the procedure of crossing out, and the evocation of a non-dialectical and non-privative negativity
In the metro by Marc Augé( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tourists climb the Eiffel Tower to see Paris. Parisians know that to really see the city you must descend into the metro. In this revelatory book, Marc Auge takes readers below Paris in a work that is both an ethnography of the city and a personal narrative. Guiding us through history, memory, and physical space, Auge juxtaposes the romance of the metro with the reality of multiethnic urban France. His work is part autobiography, with impressions from a lifetime riding the trains; part meditation on self and memory reflected in the people and places underneath Paris; part analysis of a place where the third world and the first world meet, where remnants of cultures move and press together; and part a reflection on anthropology in an era of globalization and urban development. Although he is a pillar of French thought, In the Metro is Auge's first major critical and creative work translated into English. It shows him to be firmly rooted in a tradition of literary ethnography that reaches back to Claude Levi-Strauss and Michel de Certeau, but also engaged in current theoretical debates in literary and cultural studies. In Auge's idiosyncratic and innovative approach, the act of observing the quotidian is elevated to an art. The writer and his history become part of the field he observes, and anthropology interacts with a site -- urban life -- usually reserved for sociology and cultural studies. Throughout, Auge reveals a passion for his milieu, seeing the metro as a place rich with history and literature -- an eclectic egalitarian society

À fleur de page : voir et lire le texte de la Renaissance by Tom Conley( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in French and Italian and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Si vous le voyez, vous l'oyez ; si vous l'oyez, vous le voyez" : dans De l'institution des enfants, en une tournure inimitable, Montaigne remarque combien lire et voir ne font qu'un. À l'instar des phénoménologues, se peut-il que ce que nous appelons un événement, en son sens fort, esthétique et politique, se cerne dans de tels jeux fugaces ? Il s'agit de voir comment pour nous autres, lecteurs et lectrices au premier lendemain de la révolution numérique, de tels montages de mots et de figures constituent la force d'attraction du texte de la Renaissance. L'enjeu est de retrouver chez des auteurs et artistes variés (Lemaire, Rabelais, Corrozet, Jean de Tournes, Bernard Salomon, Montaigne) des synergies insolites où l'écriture, à même la page, devient événement."--P. [4] of cover
Blaise Pascal : miracles and reason by Mary Ann Caws( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book considers Pascal's modes of writing - whether he is arguing with the strict puritanical modes of Church politics, in the guise of a naive 'provincial' trying to understand the Jesuitical approach (Les Provinciales), or meditating on the ways to present his own thoughts on religion (Apologia) to the world outside Port-Royal, the convent his sister Jacqueline had persuaded him to enter. Pascal's so-called 'worldly period', in which his relation to his libertine friends motivated his celebrated 'wager' about belief, is discussed alongside his Jansenist writings, his meditations on thinking about thinking, and finally his invention of the first means of public transport in Paris, shortly before his untimely death at 39 following a lifetime of illness

The sovereign map : theoretical approaches in cartography throughout history by Christian Jacob( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A novel work in the history of cartography, The Sovereign Map argues that maps are as much about thinking as seeing, as much about the art of persuasion as the science of geography. As a classicist, Christian Jacob brings a fresh eye to his subject - which includes maps from Greek Antiquity to the twentieth century - and provides a theoretical approach to investigating the power of maps to inform, persuade, and inspire the imagination."--Jacket
The writing of history by Michel de Certeau( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A leading intellectual member of France's Freudian school, Michel de Certeau combined principles from the disciplines of religion, history, and psychoanalysis in order to redefine historiography and rethink the categories of history. In The Writing of History, de Certeau examines the West's changing conceptions of the very role and nature of history itself, from the seventeenth-century attempts to formulate a "history of man" to Freud's Moses and Monotheism with which de Certeau interprets historical practice as a function of mankind's feelings of loss, mourning, and absence. Exhaustively researched and stunningly innovative, The Writing of History is a crucial introduction to de Certeau's work and is destined to become a classic of modern thought
