  • Volume 53 Issue 3 - Charles Denis Boak (1932-2015)
    • Abstract: Unwin, Tim
      Denis Boak, Professor of French at The University of Western Australia from 1975 to 1995, died peacefully in the Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Perth, on 5 July 2015 after a quiet but lengthy struggle with failing health. He was in his eighty-third year, and is survived by Estelle to whom he had been married for forty-nine years. Those who knew Denis will remember him as a scholar of exceptional erudition and intellectual range. He was, for many, a living illustration of the virtues of constant reading, and we are the poorer for having lost the scholar with his learning, and the man with his insights, his curiosity, and his irreverent wit.

  • Volume 53 Issue 3 - "Je lis ca comme je lirais un roman": Reading
           Scientific Works on Hypnotism in Late Nineteenth-century France
    • Abstract: Hajek, Kim M
      In France ca. 1878-1890, hypnotism enjoyed unprecedented legitimacy and cultural authority, with literary interest flourishing alongside medico-scientific enquiry into the topic. In light of these dual conditions, this article examines how texts about hypnotism constituted their ideal reader, with a focus on the role of the reader's imagination. It firstly elucidates the ways scientific texts guided their ideal reader to suppress any imaginative response to hypnotic phenomena. If this served to neutralize potentially damaging interpretations of phenomena, it also placed constraints on scientific experimentation into hypnotism. Fictional studies of hypnotism raised the possibility, however, that it was valid to read accounts of hypnotic phenomena "like novels", that is, in an imaginative mode. The analysis, in this second part, centres on an episode from Jules Claretie's 1885 novel Jean Mornas, before finally exploring the implications for scientific enquiry of fluidity between scientific and literary ways of reading hypnotism.

  • Volume 53 Issue 3 - Louis XV's Black Son
    • Abstract: Merrick, Jeffrey
      On 14 May 1775 Sim on Prosper Hardy recorded a bizarre rumour that Louis XV had a black son who claimed the French throne, occupied for just a year by Louis XVI, with the support of troops, the late king's daughters, and the prince de Cond . This article explores folkloric, sexual, and symbolic aspects of the rumour against the background of the transition between regimes, courtly factions and frictions, popular dissatisfaction with the old and new monarchs or at least their ministers, and royal policy about people with black skin. It suggests that the rumour, constructed out of facts and fictions, could have multiple meanings in the minds of Hardy's contemporaries.

  • Volume 53 Issue 3 - Un monde perdu? Fetiche, Nostalgie et "l'espace
           quelconque" de Tran Anh Hung
    • Abstract: Barnes, Leslie
      The cinema of Trần Anh H ng is defined by a subtle relationship between speed and slowness. His films focusing on Vietnam constitute an audio-visual composition that is vast and associative and often present the filmmaker's native country from multiple perspectives at once. In this essay, I examine this quest for simultaneity through a close analysis of the figure of the prostitute in Cyclo (1996). In the prostitute we see the coexistence of two value systems, one Marxist and the other psychoanalytic, and the multiplicity of time. It's a cinematographic time that is not teleological, but that doubles and unfolds itself, that insists on the singularity of the present moment as an opening onto the past and the future, where everything is brought back into play, where everything can begin again.

  • Volume 53 Issue 3 - Pour une critique bayardienne en-de du texte: le cas
           de 'Hendrik Biebouw' (Henri Bibault)
    • Abstract: Alant, Jaco
      If one could legitimately, i.e. as a critic, talk about a book one hasn't read (as has been suggested by Pierre Bayard), it must be equally possible to talk about a book (novel) that hasn't been written. This article explores this question through a reading of Bayard's Le Plagiat par anticipation (2009), drawing particularly on the concepts of "troisi me texte" (third text - relating to a "constitutive" reading) and of plagiarism of the "psyche" (focusing on the creative process). The "case" used to illustrate the argument is that of Hendrik Biebouw (Henri Bibault), known to a greater or lesser extent within South African history for having laid claim to being African (Afrikaner) in the midst of an early eighteenth-century Cape European settler community. The history relating to the event has not, as such, been novelized, yet it can reveal itself as literary through the intervention of the critic.

  • Volume 53 Issue 3 - Histoire et symbolique architecturale: lecture du
           Compagnon du Tour de France de George Sand
    • Abstract: Gado, Rania
      This article examines the symbolic treatment of architecture in 'Le Compagnon du Tour de France', a historical novel by George Sand published in 1840. The novelist creates an architectural space which allows us to read the political history of her age and the social conflicts within it. Thus, the castle of the Villepreux family appears not as a solid block but as a torn edifice where different time-frames intertwine. It evokes the past through its nature as a ruin, it suggests the present through the restoration of the chapel, and it announces the future through its building sites. Inhabited by socially different characters, the manor becomes a place which reflects the complex relations between social classes.

  • Volume 53 Issue 1/2 - Tyrannies of Distance, Perils of Proximity: Time,
           Space and Virtuality in the French and Francophone World
    • Abstract: Hardwick, Joe; Hubbell, Amy L
      Distance and proximity: two concepts which refer to the space, literal or metaphoric, between two things, two beings, two moments in time. The terms mean to stand apart and to be near; yet, the literal and ostensibly spatial nature of the terms quickly yields to their many figural uses. The easy slippage between the literal and metaphoric, the spatial and temporal, means that the two terms, however banal and transparent they may appear at first, belie a hidden complexity which invites us to see similarity in difference, and difference in similarity. This article explores how the two terms function across time in French and Francophone Studies in Australia and presents the complexities that arise in the articles gathered together in this special number of AJFS.

  • Volume 53 Issue 1/2 - L'Ailleurs et l'ici
    • Abstract: Auge, Marc
      It becomes more difficult each day to distinguish between exterior and interior, elsewhere and here. According to Paul Virilio, with globalization, the relation between interior and exterior is reversed: the interior is the global, that is, the system, and more precisely, the economic and electronic networks which constitute its foundation; the exterior, conversely, is the local, to the extent that it seeks to escape the logic of the system. As for art, its problem has always been to keep its distance from a society which it must nonetheless represent to be understood. It must be expressive and reflexive. Current conditions render more difficult the gap between expression and reflection, which involves the paradoxical eclecticism of a recourse to the exterior in a world in which there is no longer any elsewhere. In the new global order, the notion of elsewhere has lost its substance and no longer exercises its charm.

  • Volume 53 Issue 1/2 - Towards an Ethics of Distance: Representation, Free
           Production and Virtuality
    • Abstract: McCaffrey, enda
      This article takes it inspiration from a crisis between Deleuzian free production and representation in contemporary virtual and digital culture. The aim is to sketch a different ethics to the ethics of difference between free production and representation as described by Deleuze and Guattari and invoked by Michel Foucault in his preface to Anti-Oedipe. This article outlines the case for an ethical relationality between these two structures which eflects the socio-political and ethical exigencies of our virtual and digital cultures: specifically, an ethics of relationality derived paradoxically from the distance inscribed in ethical philosophy. Drawing on an amalgamation of Ricoeurean ethics and social constructionism in a definition of selfhood, I argue for the need to stand back from the distanciating effects of the virtual revolution - not with a view to approximating the cultural politics of specificity in the logic of representation - but to see in the gap in "distance from" specificity, a space of ethical and philosophical agency wherein lies the value-added of otherness.

  • Volume 53 Issue 1/2 - Distant (Be)longings: Contemporary Australian
           Memoirs of Life in France
    • Abstract: de Nooy, Juliana
      Memoirs by Australians of living in France have proliferated since 2001. Their appeal largely depends on providing an insider's insights, and invariably the authors refer to their feelings of belonging in France. Belonging to a place is commonly conceived of as a gradual attachment established through repeated local routines. In these memoirs, however, expressions of belonging are curiously often strongest on arrival in France, only to diminish thereafter. Indeed, belonging seems best achieved at a distance, prior to travel, rather than created in situ, in proximity to the local French population. This article interrogates this situation via recent theoretical approaches to belonging. It suggests that France is constructed as an imaginary space in which to project an idealized self. Rather than ratifying the projected identity, however, actual relocation to France threatens it, since the pragmatic realities of intercultural contact ultimately hamper attempts to perform belonging through that identity.

  • Volume 53 Issue 1/2 - The Performance of Intimacy and Resistance:
           Rayhana's ' mon ge je me cache encore pour fumer'
    • Abstract: Winter, Bronwyn
      This article discusses the text and performance, as well as the sociopolitical context, of Algerian feminist activist, actor and writer Rayhana's (mostly) French-language play 'A Mon ge je me cache encore pour fumer', first performed in Belleville in late 2009. The play is set in a hammam, thus rendering publicly visible a private women's space, and in doing so, crossing the distance between the patriarchal separation of public and private, and between actors and audience. A real-life attack on the author, during the play's first season, closed the distance between "art" and "life" as each echoed and mirrored the other. The play and its performances, inevitably anchored within the broader French debate about women, Islam, culture, liberty and equality, also traversed the often artificial distances that supposedly separate Algerian women's experiences from those of French women.

  • Volume 53 Issue 1/2 - Narrating Trauma: Distance and Proximity in the
           Haitian Earthquake of 2010
    • Abstract: Thomas, Bonnie
      At 4.53pm on Tuesday 12 January 2010 a devastating earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale hit the Caribbean island of Haiti. The sheer magnitude of its destruction put Haiti on the world map in an unprecedented manner as the horror of the earthquake and its aftermath was watched around the world and generated a huge relief effort. In contrast to aspects of the country's past such as the experience of slavery, which left little written trace of its effects, this contemporary event was recorded in minute detail in both written and visual forms. This article examines how contemporary Haitian writers Dany Laferri re and Rodney Saint-Eloi have used their craft to narrate, and thereby attempt to come to terms with, this trauma. It also explores the way in which both distance and proximity are necessary in order to come to terms with trauma and how the narrative process helps forge a path towards healing.

  • Volume 53 Issue 1/2 - Writing Up Close and From a Distance: French and
           North- American Representations of Belleville (Paris) in Contemporary
           'Roman Noir'
    • Abstract: Stott, Carolyn
      The Parisian quartier of Belleville is considered the ideal setting for roman noir. Post-1968 French n o-polar writers proffer a critical view of contemporary French society with its social inequality, racism, corporate and political corruption, unemployment and its consequences. This paper presents a transatlantic view of contemporary Belleville seen through the eyes of French author and journalist Serge Quadruppani, Canadian artist and author Blaise Giuliani, and American crime fiction writer Cara Black. How do these representations of Belleville differ from one side of the Atlantic to the other? From where do these differences stem? What is the relationship between fact and fiction in each of these portrayals? Does the authors' readership affect the way Belleville is depicted? In attempting to answer these questions, this article contributes to discussions about place and setting in the roman noir/n o-polar, contemporary Belleville, and its reputation in and outside of France.

  • Volume 53 Issue 1/2 - Abolir la distance (sociale)? 'Le Quai de
           Ouistreham' de Florence Aubenas la lumi re de Pierre Bourdieu
    • Abstract: Jaccomard, Helene
      This article assesses Florence Aubenas's work of "immersion journalism" Le Quai d'Ouistreham in the light of Pierre Bourdieu's methods of investigation. The point is to find out whether the journalist's immersion in joblessness has the hallmarks of good fieldwork. It is true that the book provokes a radical change of mind in readers about the lives of the working poor, and this is a sign of a successful testimony. However, some crucial elements of the "r flexivit r flexe" recommended by Bourdieu are missing, such as the researcher's self-analysis in terms of her own social position compared with the subjects under observation. Aubenas bridges the social distance between her subjects, devoid of economic and social capital, and herself by adopting a temporary role as a cleaning lady doing her "hours", but she remains an intellectual with advantages she doesn't even realize she has. These are the strength and the weakness of immersion journalism.

  • Volume 53 Issue 1/2 - Quatre ans seulement et pourtant: la distante
           proximit des deux versions 'd'Un dilemme' de Huysmans
    • Abstract: Bourgeois, Bertrand
      Huysmans' novella 'Un dilemme' first appeared in two parts in 'La Revue ind pendante' (1884). Four years later, the novella was published again by Tresse et Stock. Despite their relative proximity in time, the two versions showcase numerous differences, such as long additions or deletions, alterations of words, sentences and even entire paragraphs. These differences are not simply cosmetic or stylistic, but also ideological: they therefore allow us to revisit Huysmans' writing process and question his traditionally accepted departure from naturalism after rebours (1884). In this article, I compare the two states of the text to demonstrate that Huysmans' careful editing and rewriting of his novella contributes to the elaboration of a very satirical text against bourgeois values in a pure naturalistic fashion.

  • Volume 53 Issue 1/2 - Georges Bataille et Henri Michaux: vers une ph nom
           nologie de l'extase
    • Abstract: Fernandez Castillo, Jose Luis
      The Belgian-French poet and painter Henri Michaux wrote of Bataille's Histoire de l'oeil: "So unique and crucial are the pages you wrote about ecstasy (how important it is, ecstasy!), that after having experienced mescaline, I understand it deeply and am able to interpret it with a totally new approach." In this article I examine the relevance of ecstatic experience both as an aesthetic category and as the key element in what can be called "a theory of poetic knowledge" in the works of Georges Bataille and Henri Michaux. I trace the roots of Michaux's and Bataille's ecstatic approach to art back to the writings of Friedrich Nietzsche and his notion of the "Dionysian". In doing so, the influence of Nietzsche's ideas on Bataille's and Michaux's concepts of ecstasy becomes apparent, as does the relationship to the sacred which their writings seek to establish from a materialist point of view.

  • Volume 53 Issue 1/2 - Vanquishing Temporal Distance: Malraux, Art and
           Metamorphosis
    • Abstract: Allan, Derek
      How does art transcend time? What special power enables it to overcome temporal distance and speak to us not just as evidence of times gone by but as a living presence? The Renaissance concluded that great art is impervious to time - "timeless", "immortal", "eternal" - a belief endorsed by Enlightenment aesthetics. Later thinkers such as Hegel, Marx and Taine stressed the historical embeddedness of art, a view also espoused by certain modern theorists such as Sartre, Benjamin and Adorno. The conflict between these two positions has left us without a persuasive account of art's capacity to transcend time. Andr Malraux offers an entirely new account of this unique power of art. For Malraux, art is neither exempt from history (timeless) nor wholly immersed in it. Art transcends time through metamorphosis, a process of continual transformation in significance in which history plays an essential, but not exclusive, part.

  • Volume 53 Issue 1/2 - Distance et proximit de la cr ation: la grand-m re
           comme figure de la vocation dans ' la recherche du temps perdu'
    • Abstract: Grauby, Francoise
      The term 'scripturire', coined by Barthes to refer to the "desire to write", is best exemplified, according to him, in ' la recherche du temps perdu'. He bases this "desire to write" on a figure, the grandmother, who, through example and her role as "mother of the text", pushes the narrator to accomplish the action and the result required to satisfy the 'scripturire'. In other words, the accomplishment of writing can take place only through the grandmother's mediation but at the same time through her narrated disappearance. Revealing her role as transmitter of beliefs in the power of narration, and exposing the function of two dreams which bring to life the posture of this figure, this article examines the "troubling strangeness" resulting from distance and proximity, and which is introduced by these dreams in order to bring about a symbolic transfer of power from the grandmother, as poetic muse, to the grandson.
