  • Engaging Communities in Comparative Literature
    • Abstract: The English word community first appeared in the fourteenth century. As Raymond Williams points out in Keywords: A Vocabulary of Culture and Society, it can be traced to the middle French comuneté, which comes from the Latin communitatem. From the fourteenth to the sixteenth centuries, community meant "the commons or common people, as distinguished from those of rank," "a state or organized society," "the people of a district," "the quality of holding in common, as in community of interest, community of goods," and "a sense of common identity and characteristics." From the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries, the connotations of the English word community became similar to those of the French commune and the ... Read More

  • Comparative Literature: Reading the Canadian Nation(s)
    • Abstract: Canada is a state in change. Evidence of this change is to be found in multiple contexts, not least in the persistent rumblings of discord regarding the country's current paradigm of national identity: multiculturalism. From across a spectrum of discourses extending from the institutional-intellectual to the popular, the critiques of multiculturalism have been many and varied: in the academy, the government, the media and, one assumes, around the kitchen table. Examples abound: for instance, the "unsettling" account(s) of multiculturalism in the 2011 collection Home and Native Land: Unsettling Multiculturalism in Canada; the editorial title in the Globe and Mail, "Strike Multiculturalism from the National ...

  • Digital Culture in Hong Kong Canadian Communities: Literary Analysis of Yi
           Shu's Fiction
    • Abstract: Hong Kong Canadian Communities have particularly expanded between the 1980s and the mid-1990s, in part owing to a new wave of Hong Kong immigration to Canada in recent years. This large-scale migration is mainly due to Hong Kong's dynamic geopolitical and economic relationships with Mainland China and Canada as a result of its transformation from a British colony (1842-1997) to a postcolonial city. Hong Kong Canadian migration and communities offer important contributions to the sociohistorical, political, and economic heterogeneity of multicultural Canadian communities. As a trading centre on Mainland China's south coast, Hong Kong was an important stop on the travels of Chinese migrants to Canada from the late ... Read More

  • "Experiencing It through the Skin:" Karen Connelly's Writing on Travel
    • Abstract: The crossing of borders is part of human experience, and the stories we tell of our journeys inform how we imagine ourselves and others in the world.1 In fact, narratives of geographical displacement have become pivotal in the production and understanding of cultural identities, mainly due to the potential encounters and revisions these narratives depict and reenact. It is exactly from this space of possibility that this paper departs, beginning with a discussion of two short excerpts from texts that negotiate moments of travel and encounter. The first is taken from Canadian writer Karen Connelly's One Room in a Castle: Letters from Spain, France and Greece, in which she collects not only letters, but stories ... Read More

  • To Want and Want Not: Manifestations of Desire in "Barbie-Q" by Sandra
           Cisneros and "The Couch" by Fatima Hamad Al Mazrouei
    • Abstract: Although "Barbie-Q" (1991) by Chicana Sandra Cisneros and "The Couch" (2010) by Emirati Fatima H. Al Mazrouei originate in very different cultural contexts, these two texts have more in common than their brevity and poetic style, and it is their similarities that make them ideal candidates for a comparative analysis. Both short stories are told by female narrators who desire the object identified in the title of each story, and the items of their desire carry significant symbolic value to each respective story. Both stories offer an implicit critique of (post)modern consumerism, and both also weave this critique into a context of female body image and the beauty myth manifested in Naomi Wolf's 1991 book of the same ...

  • Fixating on and Fixing the African American Woman's Representation of Self
           in Modern Periodicals
    • Abstract: A free race cannot be born of slave mothers. A woman enchained cannot choose but give a measure of bondage to her sons and daughters. No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her body. No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother.Margaret Sanger, founder of the first birth control clinics in the United States, published The Birth Control Review, a journal that ran from February 1917 to January 1940, specifically to challenge the Comstock Law, a federal act governing the "Suppression of Trade in, and Circulation of, Obscene Literature and Articles of Immoral Use," in effect since 1873 (Jütte; Kranz), which prohibited the dissemination of ...

  • Same-Sex Desire and Jewish Community: Queering Biblical Texts in Canadian
           and American Jewish Literature
    • Abstract: It has been asserted that queer subjectivity can be realized in identifications with certain images of mainstream culture, sometimes to a far greater extent than in "conventional" forms of gay life (Sedgwick, Tendencies; Butler, Bodies; Munoz; Halperin, How). These nonlinear, nonnormative identifications and disidentifications participate in the formation of multiple, hybrid identities through working on, with, and against a dominant cultural form (Munoz 3-8, 30). This essay looks at Jewish queer narratives in their relation to mainstream Jewish culture, as examples of contemporary forms of Jewish literary imagination in North America. I am interested in exploring the ways Jewish queer culture workers read a queer ... Read More

  • Communauté et environnement dans la fiction océanienne contemporaine
           (pêle-mêle sur quelques récits d'Albert Wendt, Alexis Wright, Patricia
           Grace, Chantal Spitz et Déwé Gorodé)
    • Abstract: Because I've always known that land can love its people and always understood the reciprocity between people and land.La fiction produite depuis la fin des années 60 dans l'espace océanien (Pacifique insulaire, Australie, Nouvelle-Zélande)1 est profondément informée par des problématiques de nature mémorielle, sociale, économique, politique et linguistique—en quoi elle apparaît, dans sa globalité, comme une littérature post-coloniale, se définissant contre les poétiques et les agencements issus des métropoles coloniales, même après la chute des empires.2 Par un intense jeu de déconstruction engagé sur les fictions exotiques, les savoirs disparates qui les nourrissent3 et leurs mythologies constitutives—pour ...

  • War and Sentimentalism: Irony in Voltaire's Candide, Sterne's Tristram
           Shandy, and Lessing's Minna von Barnhelm
    • Abstract: The period from the mid-1750s to the mid-1760s was marked by the Seven Years' War, a proto-nationalistic military conflict that saw a death toll of over a million, as well as the rise of sentimentalism, an intellectual movement based on the principles of sympathy, benevolence, and humanity.2 The clash of these two historical phenomena finds expression in some of the century's most canonical works of fiction, including Voltaire's Candide, ou l'optimisme (1759), Laurence Sterne's The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman (1759-67), and Gotthold Ephraim Lessing's Minna von Barnhelm, oder das Soldatenglück (1767). All three of these texts use various forms of irony (verbal, situational, structural, and ... Read More

  • Following the Aesthetic Impulse: A Comparative Approach to a Poetics of
           Trauma
    • Abstract: Where are the intersections of poetry, trauma, and healing? How does reading and writing poetry open a space for the imagination to transform embodied memories too real and horrific to be recounted in ordinary language into images that rest softly, or not so softly, on the page? How does writing become part of a process of cultivating self-trust when the world has taught you that you were wrong to believe your body ever belonged to you in the first place? Can a community-engaged practice of poetry-making cultivate collective healing for a society fractured and torn apart by systems of colonization and patriarchy?These are questions I continuously ask myself—as a poet, as a trauma survivor, as an educator, and as an ...

  • Silent Landscapes: A comparative approach to José Leonilson and
           Louise Bourgeois
    • Abstract: So the piece is the product of a challenge. It is so many other things, by the way.Essa luta mostra suficientemente a força da escritura, isto é, as palavras que escrevemos, sem aviso, diria, sugerem ao escritor outra coisa e forçam o scriptor a deslizar sobre outros sentidos e reorientar sua história.Criar não é imaginação, é correr o grande risco de se ter a realidade.One of the most characteristic features of Comparative Literature in terms of methodological practice is that of operating "in between" spaces. Not only does this feature suggest the comparative approach as something that originates through movement, thus making it imperative for the researcher to deal with the notion of mobility, it also ...

  • The Topological Imagination: Spheres, Edges, and Islands by Angus Fletcher
           (review)
    • Abstract: In his latest work, Angus Fletcher does not so much double-down on the Romantic bet that humanistic concerns always-already trump enlightened 'progress' as suggest something much more paradoxical: it is only by returning to science that art can be shown to take precedence. But this is not the science of Galileo, Newton, or Descartes. The science of these men is deemed negative on net, having led, for instance, to the ecological catastrophe said to be awaiting our Earth. Rather, it is the science which Euler effectively inaugurated in 1735 when he solved Königsberg's Seven Bridges problem, viz. the mathematical field of topology. The Topological Imagination is to be lauded for championing the transformative power ... Read More

  • Histoire des traductions en langue française XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles ed.
           by Yves Chevrel, Annie Cointre, Yen-Maï Tran-Gervat (review)
    • Abstract: L'Histoire des traductions en langue française XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles (HTLF) est le 2e volume d'une série qui en compte quatre, dont le dernier portant sur le XXe siècle est à paraître. À contre-courant des histoires littéraires et nationales traditionnelles, ce projet d'envergure vise à reconnaître la contribution des traducteurs et de la traduction à l'histoire culturelle de la France durant la période classique. À l'image des autres volumes de la série, celui consacré au XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles est le fruit d'un travail collectif réunissant une soixantaine de chercheurs provenant de plusieurs pays.Dès le premier chapitre, les éditeurs s'expliquent à la fois sur leur choix singulier de périodisation ainsi que ...

  • Anglo-German Theatrical Exchange: "A Sea-Change into Something Rich and
           Strange?" ed. by Rudolf Weiss, Ludwig Schnauder, and Dieter Fuchs (review)
           
    • Abstract: The title of this volume addresses a dynamic dialogue between two distinct theatre cultures, and the tome's sixteen essays cover material from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century. The blurb on the back-cover, written, presumably, by the editors, calls the collection a "seminal contribution to an under-researched field at the intersection of literary and cultural criticism, comparative literature, and theatre as well as translation studies." The text's authors do not, however, appear to acknowledge that it is their readers who make such judgements and that only time will tell just how influential the essays might be.The essays all appear in English, something that signals an appeal to a wider audience, given ...

  • Struggling Upward: Worldly Success and the Japanese Novel by Timothy J.
           Van Compernolle (review)
    • Abstract: Timothy J. Van Compernolle's Struggling Upward: Worldly Success and the Japanese Novel makes a meaningful contribution to existing studies of modern Japanese novels by probing the intersection between the novel and the nation from the angle of risshin shusse (ambition and worldly success). This is a fresh approach that allows for the crisscrossing of not only literary genres but also a wide range of non-literary print media. Most important, it brings to centre stage an investigation into the literary chronotope as it relates to the dominant time-space of the nation. It comes as somewhat of a surprise that this is the first monograph to undertake a concerted engagement with the topic of risshin shusse, given, as ... Read More

  • Landscapes of Writing in Chicano Literature ed. by Imelda Martin-Junquera
           (review)
    • Abstract: Ecotheory studies categories of human commitment to the natural world in order to demonstrate how various social and cultural norms exert unjust dominance over minority groups and women as a result of different power structures and numerous associations made between nature and those groups. While there exists a long tradition of representing women as irrational, emotional, and mystified beings driven by their biological impulses, ethnic minorities have been similarly represented as barbarians, lustful beasts, or childlike creatures who need to be controlled or tampered. The consequences of these depictions are far-reaching for both women and ethnic minorities. Both groups have been discriminated against and ... Read More

  • Minorities and the Modern Arab World: New Perspectives ed. by Laura Robson
           (review)
    • Abstract: The Arab World continues to be too often gazed upon as though it were a monolith, despite decades of knowledge production aiming for the subversion of such reductive yet tenacious views. The very phrase "The Arab World," which remains the proper expression used to refer to the region, suggests a singular world of its own, separate and insular, but also consistent in its peculiar features. The implication is not only that it is distinct from other "Worlds" (including, presumably, the "Western World"), but also that its inhabitants are the same wherever they are found across a remarkably vast geography, and of whatever walk of life they may be, while attributes such as complexity, diversity, and heterogeneity are the ...
