Women’s Writing and Filmmaking in Quebec: An International Conference

Senate House, University of London, UK
Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies
Centre for Contemporary Women’s Writing
Centre for Quebec and French-Canadian Studies
Mireille Dansereau (filmmaker), Martine Delvaux (UQAM), Catherine Mavrikakis (Université de Montréal).
The rich corpus of cinematic and literary texts produced by women in Quebec generates a myriad of intellectual and research questions including: relationships among gender, feminism, national identity and nationalism; positions with regard to both Anglo-American and French feminist thought; histories and spaces; literary and popular fiction; the importance and influence of documentary; lesbian and other queer texts; languages and hybridities in ‘exophonic’, immigrant and indigenous writing. This international conference will bring together academics and practitioners to reflect on these and other issues, and to promote the importance and relevance of Quebec with regard to the twin fields of women’s writing and filmmaking. The languages of the conference will be English and French.
Submission deadline: 15 December 2012
