Séminaire "Victorian persistence : text, image, theory", programme 2012-2013


The present-day globalization of Victorian writing can be traced back to the extraordinary plasticity of its textual and visual forms, as it travels from place to place and media to media. Such temporal, geographical, cultural and intermedial persistence is to be the subject of a seminar which will consider the different modes of resistance of literature within the nineteenth-century as well as its survival and rebirth in later times. Three texts from the following domains will be chosen for each session : 1. theory/philosophy 2. academic criticism and 3. literature/journalism. They will be made available beforehand. The idea of the seminar is to allow speakers to discuss their area of research with others through a study of the three texts and chosen images, and thus open out the subject to other corpora, centuries, disciplines. The seminar takes place at the université Paris Diderot and is supervised by Sara Thornton, Professor of English studies, as part of the LARCA research centre. (UFR d’Etudes anglophones Charles V, 10 rue Charles V, 75004 Paris, métro Bastille, Sully Morland or Saint-Paul.)
