Abstract

"In July 1905, in Paris, a young Anglo-French woman called Marie Wheeler became the bride of a Swiss émigré, Johannes Schad. Immediately after the wedding, Marie and Johannes moved to London. And there they lived for nineteen years. In 1924, however, something happened to change their lives, and Marie, in many respects, simply disappeared. Paris Bride is an exploration of the lost life of Marie Schad, of whom little is known beyond a few legal papers, a number of letters, some photographs, the diaries of a friend, and her obituary. With so little else known of Marie’s life, this book seeks to read her back into existence by drawing on a host of contemporaneous texts — largely modernist texts, by Virginia Woolf, Franz Kafka, the Paris Surrealists, Stéphane Mallarmé, Oscar Wilde, Katherine Mansfield, and Walter Benjamin. All of the selected authors are connected with Marie through some coincidence of time, place, or theme. In an attempt to do justice to Marie’s in-visibility, or to her un-life, Paris Bride takes as its guide Wilde’s declaration that “the true function of criticism is to see the object as in itself it really is not.” In other words, this book seeks to evade the positivist or realist assumptions of conventional literary criticism, and instead pursue a post-critical method with its sources and texts. Paris Bride is not confined to academic discourse but instead draws on a range of literary genres and devices that are more in sympathy with the non-realist character of modernism itself — devices such as fragmentation, flânerie, textual collage, stream of consciousness, imagism, perspectivism, dream-text, the absurd, etc. Ultimately, Paris Bride is a modernistic experiment in life-writing."

Abstract

Why should there only be literary scholarship about authors who actually lived, and texts which exist? Where are the articles on Enoch Campion, Linus Withold, Redondo Panza, Darshan Singh, or Heidi B. Morton? That none of these are real authors should be no impediment to interpreting their invented writings. In the first collection of its kind, The Anthology of Babel publishes academic articles by scholars on authors, books, and movements that are completely invented. Blurring the lines between scholarship and creative writing, The Anthology of Babel inaugurates a completely new literary genre perfectly attuned to the era we live in, a project evocative of Jorge-Louis Borges, Umberto Eco, and Italo Calvino.

Abstract

La théorie de Darwin aussi bien que sa réception scientifique, littéraire et politique en France continuent d’être matière à débat. Les controverses qu’elle a suscitées à partir de la première traduction française de L’Origine des espèces en 1862 n’ont pas été le seul fait des naturalistes, des géologues ou des paléontologues. De nombreux autres savants se sont préoccupés de l’impact du darwinisme sur leur discipline, notamment en philologie, dans les mathématiques, la linguistique, la psychologie comparée, l’histoire ou la philosophie. Les auteurs des textes réunis dans Darwin au Collège de France montrent que le Collège de France constitue un point de référence idéal pour étudier les idées de Darwin et leur réception ainsi que la manière dont elles ont pu jouer sur la formation des disciplines du milieu du xixe siècle jusqu’à aujourd’hui. Parmi les défenseurs ou les adversaires français du darwinisme, on compte en effet plusieurs de ses professeurs, à commencer par Pierre Flourens, dont l’Examen du livre de M. Darwin (1864) a été l’un des premiers comptes rendus hostiles de L’Origine des espèces. D’autres figurent encore dans la liste : Ernest Renan, Edgar Quinet, Théodule Ribot, Jean-Charles Lévêque, Étienne-Jules Marey, Jean-François Nourrisson, Michel Bréal, Gabriel Tarde, Henri Bergson, Étienne Gilson. À cette liste s’ajoutent les professeurs de biologie, de médecine, de paléontologie, de neurosciences, ou d’économie politique. Le colloque, dont les contributions sur quelques-uns des savants mentionnés ci-dessus sont réunies dans le deuxième volume de la collection « Passage des disciplines », a été organisé par Alain Prochiantz et Antoine Compagnon dans le cadre du projet « Passage des disciplines : Histoire globale du Collège de France, xixe siècle - xxe siècle », qui s’intéresse à l’évolution des matières enseignées aussi bien que celles qui ont n’y ont pas été admises et qui forment un « Collège virtuel », depuis la fin du xviiie siècle jusqu’aux années 1960. Il est dirigé par Antoine Compagnon, avec la collaboration de Céline Surprenant et le soutien financier de PSL (2016-2019), et de la Fondation Hugot.

Abstract

This book focuses on seven of the most important formal methods used to interpret the New Testament today. Several of the chapters also touch on Old Testament/Hebrew Bible interpretation. In line with the multiplicity of methods for interpretation of texts in the humanities in general, New Testament study has never before seen so many different methods. This situation poses both opportunities and challenges for scholars and students alike. The articles in this book introduce the latest methods and give examples of these methods at work. The seven methods are as follows: post-colonial, narrative, historical, performance, mathematical analysis of style; womanist; and ecological.
