The objective was to engage with society and create public fora to critically rethink migration and hospitality. The results were published in Spanish in the volume Cine y hospitalidad: narrativas visuales del otro (Ediciones de la Universidad de Salamanca, 2021). Other results were a MOOC on film analysis and the documentary “The Sounds of Hospitality: Migrant Musicians in Europe,” directed by Michel Gasco and Parisa Delshad.

« I have developed a rhetorically based approach to metaphor known as Critical Metaphor Analysis. it draws on methodologies and perspectives developed in corpus linguistics, critical linguistics and cognitive semantics (see Corpus Approaches to Critical Metaphor Analysis, Palgrave 2004). I explain rhetorical choices – and in particular metaphor choices – with reference to individual pragmatic, cognitive and linguistic knowledge and to the social resources of culture, ideology and history. I am currently working on the Discourse of Brexit across a range of genres (including the press, twitter and political speeches), in particular identifying the framing effects of metaphor. »

Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Department of Anthropology, Yale University :

Chercheuse invitée du 17 au 29 octobre 2022 par le laboratoire CAS (EA 801) et le DEMA de l’Université Toulouse Jean-Jaurès (référente : Claire Cazajous-Augé).

« My research focuses on the practices, imaginaries, and influences of contemporary science and technology. I am interested in how scientists transform our understanding of what it means to be in the world. To study this, I think about the role of place and place-making in scientific work. My first book, Placing Outer Space: An Earthly Ethnography of Other Worlds, is about planetary scientists and how they transform planets from scientific objects into worlds. In so doing, Mars scientists and exoplanet astronomers are re-shaping our understanding of the universe, presenting a cosmos filled with places and destinations instead of an empty void. Earth, as a planet and a place, is implicated in this changing cosmology. My research asks how the planetary imagination developed by scientist looking outward might be turned inward and used to comprehend Earth on a planetary scale, necessary for confronting today’s environmental and political crises.

Currently, I am investigating the re-emerging technology of virtual reality. As a technology of immersion, VR promises to transport us to existing and fictitious places. This research is supported by an NSF Scholars Award, and I will be conducting ethnographic fieldwork in Los Angeles to study how the particular mix of entertainment, academic research, and industry development shape VR and its attending community. Through reading, teaching, and writing, I endeavor to link conversations in sociocultural anthropology with other fields of inquiry, including science and technology studies, media studies, cultural geography, environmental humanities, and history of science and technology. »

Edwige Tamalet Talbayev

Edwige Tamalet Talbayev

Associate Professor of French and Director of Middle East and North African Studies, Tulane University

Chercheure invitée du 10 au 21 mai 2022 au Laboratoire CAS (EA 801) de l’Université Toulouse Jean-Jaurès (référente : Isabelle Keller-Privat)

Edwige Tamalet Talbayev’s work focuses on the intersection of modernity, postcoloniality, and transnationalism in the Maghreb and the Mediterranean contact zone.

Her first book, The Transcontinental Maghreb: Francophone Literature across the Mediterranean, was published by Fordham University Press in 2017. Studying a Mediterranean-inspired body of texts from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Gibraltar in French, Arabic, and Spanish, the book argues for a transmaritime deployment of the Maghreb across Mediterranean sites to which it has been materially and culturally bound for millennia. Through a reflection on allegory and critical melancholia, the book shows how the Mediterranean decenters postcolonial nation-building projects and breathes new life into Maghrebi claims to an inclusive, democratic national ideal yet to be realized. Engaging the space of the sea, the hybridity it produces, and the way it has shaped such historical dynamics as globalization, imperialism, decolonization, and nationalism, The Transcontinental Maghreb rethinks the very nature of postcolonial histories and identities along its shores.

She is the co-editor of the collection Critically Mediterranean: Temporalities, Aesthetics, and Deployments of a Sea in crisis (Palgrave 2018), which probes the critical relevance of the Mediterranean as a theoretical entity and an aesthetic, hermeneutic, and theoretical category for the interpretation of culture in the modern era.

A second ongoing project, “Water Logics,” extends the reflection on the Mediterranean to other maritime contexts across the globe. Turning away from visions of the sea as a setting in which to examine the intersection of the histories of empire and capital, “Water logics” proposes to delve into the materiality of the aqueous as a site of alternative epistemologies and experiences of being. “Water Logics” will be the focus of an international conference to take place at Tulane on April 11-12, 2019.

Chercheure invitée du 20 mars au 9 avril 2022 au Laboratoire CAS (EA 801) de l’Université Toulouse Jean-Jaurès (référente : Françoise Coste)

Kathleen Donohue is Professor of History at Central Michigan University.

Professor Donohue is primarily interested in the ways in which Americans make sense of their political world. Her first book, Freedom from Want: American Liberalism and the Idea of the Consumer (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2003; paperback 2005), looked at the role that American ideas about the producer and the consumer played in transforming free-market liberalism into its more activist modern counterpart. Recent publications include the edited collection Liberty and Justice for All? Rethinking Politics in Cold War America (Amherst, 2012) and an article “Choosing Conservatism in the 1930s: The Political Odyssey of F. J. Schlink,” which recently appeared in The Journal of the Historical Society. Her current book project, Information Wars: The Public’s Right to Know and the Making of Modern America, for which she received both a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship and a Theodore Sorensen Research Fellowship, examines the ways in which the politics and political discourse surrounding the public’s right to know shaped public policy and ideas about democracy, citizenship and governance between 1945 and 1990. Professor Donohue has also taught in Germany on several occasions, most recently at universities in Bochum and Heidelberg.

Professor Emeritus of Classics, Maynooth University

Chercheur invité du 14 mars au 2 avril 2022 au Laboratoire CAS (EA 801) de l’Université Toulouse Jean-Jaurès (référente : Isabelle Keller-Privat)

“I am interested in practically all aspects of Antiquity, and my research embraces both literature and ancient social and cultural history. In general, it has four main emphases: (a) bereavement and consolation in the ancient world; (b) the literature of late Antiquity, especially Jerome; (c) the Greek and Roman novel; (d) twentieth-century receptions of the classical world, especially in English literature from 1900 to 1939.  I am currently working on a monograph on E. M. Forster and Classics, as well as a new edition of his second novel, The Longest Journey, commissioned by Cambridge University Press as part of The Cambridge Edition of the Fiction of E. M. Forster; and I have for some time been working on a major book-length study of the ancient consolatory letter, where sociohistorical questions are as much of a concern as more traditional literary and philosophical matters.  Recent publications include a volume on representations of violence in Latin literature, Texts and Violence in the Roman World, co-edited with Monica Gale of Trinity College Dublin (Cambridge, 2018) ”.
