What is the human fascination with voyage? How is it linked to creative endeavor? To aesthetic and cultural transformation? To political and economic gain? To shifts in knowledge systems? To periods and movements in literary and artistic history? From early relations de voyage to colonial novels and films, contemporary personal narratives, and musical performances, we have ample evidence of the allure and hazards of movement across seascapes and landmasses in search of fortune or freedom. The innovations of twentieth-century French theory are, arguably, linked to the moment of decolonization, but theory’s travel has also produced controversial engagements with local knowledge and global epistemes. This conference will focus on travel, its many forms, and multiple consequences: voyages of the mind, body and soul, in a variety of genres, from the oral to the written, the visual, and the philosophical.
For the 20th Annual Graduate Student Conference of the UCLA Department of French and Francophone Studies, we understand travel to include empirical and conceptual engagements with the notions of movement, migration, displacement, and change. Proposals might address these issues in terms of the voyage within or possible forms of lyrical or autobiographical introspection, and, conversely, the search for a concrete or spiritual ailleurs, for escape, transcendence and their pitfalls. We are also interested in the rhetorical notions of digression and detour, in the social and cultural meanings of exile and return, and in broad interdisciplinary approaches. Our aim is to address concerns of importance to scholars in literature, history, film and media studies, art history, and philosophy.
