  • Introduction
    • Abstract: Journeys are the midwives of thought.The project of a volume on Women and Traveling originated at the Modern Language Association Convention in Chicago (January 2014) after a table ronde organized and presided by Christine McCall Probes, Voyages de femmes, entrepris et rapportés: Représentations littéraires et/ou artistiques, was particularly well received. Speakers included Linda Alcott, Hélène Diaz Brown, Arline E. Cravens, Molly Krueger Enz, Perry J. Gethner and Catherine R. Montfort. Soon after the MLA, Christine McCall Probes and Catherine R. Montfort sent a call for papers inviting scholars to submit essays on the topic Les femmes et le voyage for a Special Volume of WIF Studies. Our stated goal was to ... Read More

  • The Gendered Ecology of Travel: De- and Re-territorialization in the T
           Version of La Vie de sainte Marie l'Égyptienne
    • Abstract: In medieval French literature, saints are among the most frequent travelers, and their voyages raise questions about the role ecology plays in shaping one's gendered identity. Saints like Gilles, Brendan, Louis, Nicholas, Alexis, Paule, Marie-Madeleine, Marie l'Égyptienne, and others take to the sea for various reasons: pilgrimage, evangelization, penitence, and—most interestingly—self-transformation.1 Several of these saints struggle in their early lives as they are expected to adhere to gender norms which impede them from pursing their personal desires, so they flee to new places where they have more freedom to live as they see fit. These new locations leave their mark on the saints who transform their identities ... Read More

  • Renée de France's and Clément Marot's Voyages: Political Exile
           to Spiritual Liberation
    • Abstract: After spending most of her adult life far from home in Ferrara, Italy, Renée de France returned in 1560 to spend her dowager years at her château in Montargis. There, in the relative freedom of widowhood, she welcomed Calvinist pastors, harbored religious refugees, and corresponded frequently with her daughter, Anne d'Este. In an extant minute of her spiritual Testament, written in 1573, she remembers her departure from France in startlingly poignant detail.1 She laments: "[je] fus conduite en pleurs et larmes hors du royaulme de ma nation" (Rodocanachi 545). Speaking here in the passive voice, the implicit first-person pronoun is more an object than a subject, emphasizing that the agent of this action is external ... Read More

  • Les aventures de Marie Anne Françoise von Hohenzollern, Comtesse
           d'Isembourg
    • Abstract: Au XVIIe siècle le voyage faisait partie de la vie de nombreuses dames de la haute noblesse. Selon Dorothea Nolde, « disposant d'un vaste réseau de parenté, les femmes de la haute noblesse voyageaient par obligation familiale, mais elles profitaient aussi de ces réseaux pour pouvoir voyager » (62). Cependant, la plupart des études modernes sur les « récits de voyage » de femmes commencent à partir du XVIIIe siècle, et se limitent à ce que Nicolas Bourguinat appelle des « catégories usuelles (voyage de formation, d'études, de loisir) » (11). Nolde attribue ce manque d'études à plusieurs facteurs. D'abord, les voyages de femmes étaient plutôt racontés dans leurs correspondances ou encore leurs mémoires que dans des « ... Read More

           et lettres de voyage of Sophie de Hanovre (1630–1714)
    • Abstract: In Le Siècle de Louis XIV (1751), Voltaire declared that French has become "la langue de l'Europe," reminding his readers of the great authors of the seventeenth century and the Calvinist pastors and refugees, among others, who took the language to foreign countries. Voltaire praised the French "esprit de société" linking it to the qualities of the language itself: "La langue française est de toutes les langues celle qui exprime avec le plus de facilité, de netteté, et de délicatesse, tous les objets de la conversation des honnêtes gens; et par là elle contribue dans toute l'Europe à un des plus grands agréments de la vie" (4: ch. 33, 244). Pierre Bayle, one of the authors singled out by Voltaire for the ... Read More

  • Fictional Women Travelers in Plays by Women: Victims or Good Role
           Models'
    • Abstract: It was hardly the norm for women to travel in French drama of the classical period. To be sure, the adoption of the unities of time and place restricted the types of plots in which travel could occur, limiting the journeying, with only occasional exceptions, to either right before the start of the play's action (the character arrives from somewhere else) or right after (the character is banished or leaves voluntarily at the close of the play). I have chosen to examine the corpus of plays written by French women dramatists between 1650 and 1750 to look for examples and patterns of travel by female characters.1 While these represent some of the common types of situations in which women could travel in real life, the ...

  • « Rendue à moi-même, je crois recommencer à vivre »: Zilia's Search

    • Abstract: Since its rediscovery several decades ago by feminist critics in particular and canonical revisionists in general, Mme de Graffigny's eighteenth century bestseller, Lettres d'une Péruvienne, has rightfully drawn consistent attention due in part to its unconventional ending in which Zilia, the protagonist, boldly opts for a life of independence, creativity and solitude over conventional marriage. The fascination with the uniqueness of the conclusion continues to intrigue scholars who, while delving into wide-ranging and diverse interpretations of the text, still highlight within their writings the distinctiveness of the narrative's closure. In her 2005 study of the aristocratic strategies found in the novel ... Read More

  • The Expatriate and the Traveler: Constance de Salm and Germaine de
           Staël in Germany
    • Abstract: In 1803, Constance de Salm and Germaine de Staël, two celebrated French women of letters, were facing the prospect of leaving France to spend time in Germany. Despite their apparently similar intentions to leave France for the same general destination, the circumstances of their travels were very different. Constance de Salm's departure was a joyful prospect brought by a love match and her (second) marriage to the count Joseph von Salm-Reifferscheidt-Dyck, whose prominent family owned estates in the Rhine region.1 Staël, in contrast, had just received the First Consul Napoleon Bonaparte's order to go into exile. Perceived by Napoleon as a troublemaker who agitated against him and his regime in her writings and ... Read More

           Claire de Duras et certaines œuvres picturales
    • Abstract: Si le voyage, pour les êtres libres, peut signifier un processus de progrès, il est, à l'époque coloniale, synonyme de conquête et de transport de biens et de personnes à des fins exploitatrices. En termes littéraires et artistiques, les voyages de type exotique constituent des images figeant les êtres dans des schémas de pensées oppressifs. Les différents volumes de l'ouvrage The Image of the Black in Western Art fournissent de nombreux exemples picturaux de sujets « noirs » liés aux voyages coloniaux. Or, ces voyages coïncident, pour la femme « noire », avec un enchaînement d'images aliénantes. Comme le disait Simone de Beauvoir dans Les Belles Images, « […] la chaîne de mensonges se perpétuerait, les belles ... Read More

De même, Armand Pommier dans Profils contemporains. Mme la Comtesse Dora d'Istria, paru en 1863, la présente comme une femme de lettres importante et une voyageuse inlassable qui s'intéresse au sort des peuples visités. Et encore le marquis de Villemer dans son livre Portraits cosmopolites paru en 1870, la caractérise comme une « grande cosmopolite » (Le marquis de Villemer 177)1. En fait tous les contemporains de Dora d'Istria qui ont écrit sur elle ont fait valoir ... Read More

Sand est en effet une grande voyageuse et pratique la marche à pied depuis l'enfance dans la campagne de Nohant. Il n'est donc pas surprenant que les voyages et la marche à pied innervent une grande part de son œuvre. Ses récits de voyage sont souvent des prétextes à l'écriture : « Ça que faire' […] si j'écrivais à quelqu'un' » (Voyage en Auvergne 2 : 503–04) et un moment d'ouverture du regard pour se désennuyer ou ...

  • The Feminine Copy: Travel and Textual Reproduction in Jane de la
           Vaudère's Les Demi-sexes
    • Abstract: In a somewhat paradoxical gesture, Jane de La Vaudère's Les Demi-sexes (1897), a novel about clandestine ovariectomies in finde-siècle Paris, opens with a sonnet commemorating the "Vénus de Syracuse," a Sicilian sculpture of the goddess of fertility. A tribute to her "flancs puissants" and her "blanches mamelles" (line 14), this reproductive model of femininity seems a far cry from the sterilized Parisian "demi-sexes" that occupy the novel's pages. Famously described by Maupassant in his travel memoir "La Sicile" (1886), the "Vénus de Syracuse," a copy of an original ancient Greek statue, incarnates Les Demi-sexes's conflicting and contradictory discourses about femininity, procreative responsibilities and the ...

    • Abstract: Parler du récit de voyage au XIXe siècle, c'est parler d'un univers avant tout masculin, car même si la critique s'intéresse depuis quelques décennies déjà aux voyages de femmes (Irvine, « Le Récit » 69), le genre fut en premier lieu et dans sa grande majorité pratiqué par des hommes—parmi les plus connus, on peut penser à Chateaubriand, Théophile Gautier, Gérard de Nerval, Guy de Maupassant, ou Pierre Loti. Si l'écriture de voyage au féminin est aussi rare au XIXe siècle, alors même que la période voit les débuts et l'expansion du tourisme de masse, c'est qu'elle ne correspond ni aux normes sociales et sexuées de la féminité—Margot Irvine note ainsi que la femme « comme il faut » se doit de rester chez elle (« Le ...

    • Abstract: "I took an oath that in spite of all obstacles I would reach Llasa and show what the will of a woman could achieve!" proclaimed Alexandra David-Néel who became the first European woman to venture into the holy city of Llasa in 1924 at the age of fifty-five, disguised as an arjopa or mendicant pilgrim (My Journey to Llasa xxv). She remained there for two months. She was determined to penetrate the then forbidden citadel because she was irked by what she called an "absurd prohibition" (My Journey to Llasa xx).1 She justifies her desire by exhorting the reader to remember that if "'heaven is the Lord's,' the earth is the inheritance of man, and that consequently any honest traveller has the right to walk as he ...

According to Trophimowsky's wishes, Eberhardt wore masculine attire at a very ... Read More

I have observed that the only true intelligence of distant countries is to be had from those who have passed [time in] them, without a design of publishing their remarks." Norton goes on to suggest that a handbook for Italy or another country "might be made by bringing together the observations and impressions of famous and remarkable men and women as recorded in their informal letters and diaries."2 Norton could not have anticipated that her own letters to fellow French scholar Lucy Allen Paton would become a source for ...

  • D'hier à aujourd'hui: les mythes du Portugal et de Salazar en France chez
           les écrivaines voyageuses Simone de Beauvoir et Christine Garnier
    • Abstract: En 2013, la comédie La Cage dorée de Ruben Alves mettait en haut de l'affiche les Portugais de France et dénonçait avec humour la méconnaissance des Français de cette communauté et de son histoire1. Cette méconnaissance est d'autant plus surprenante que les Portugais sont l'une des communautés étrangères les plus nombreuses en France avec les Maghrébins. Leur émigration, massive dans les années soixante, est liée au régime dictatorial d'António de Oliveira Salazar (1928-1974) et aux guerres coloniales en Afrique lusophone2. De nos jours, les Portugais de France et leurs descendants occupent une place singulière dans le débat contemporain sur l'identité française. Considérés comme des symboles d'une intégration ...

  • Voyages endeuillés dans l'œuvre de Marie Darrieussecq
    • Abstract: Peut-on faire son deuil ailleurs ' Tel est l'enjeu de plusieurs romans de Marie Darrieussecq. Si à première vue, partir en voyage semble encourager un nouveau départ et éveiller le désir de continuer à vivre, le souvenir des événements accompagne fidèlement la voyageuse dans les nouvelles contrées explorées, l'empêchant d'accomplir son travail du deuil1. Quoique « [l]'œuvre de Marie Darrieussecq offre au lecteur une véritable invitation au voyage » (Kemp 159) et que pour l'auteure elle-même, voyager est « un luxe » qui permet d'« [ê]tre complètement ailleurs, tête et corps » (« Marie Darrieussecq » 77), ce n'est pas le sort qui est réservé à certaines de ses héroïnes. Au lieu de privilégier le changement d'idées ... Read More

  • The Journey Home: Annie Ernaux's Retour à Yvetot
    • Abstract: This article examines a very curious journey: not a journey to a destination, a record of an adventure, exploration or immigration, but a journey back to a home that the author had long avoided. Annie Ernaux was born in Lillebonne and grew up in the small, rural Normandy town of Yvetot. She has recounted her departure from this town in a succession of autobiographical texts that allude to the discomfort she associates with it. Having left to pursue her studies, she only returned for short visits to her parents' café-épicerie. Throughout her long career as a successful writer, representatives of the town have frequently invited her to attend events there but she has always declined. In an interview with Normandie ...
