Giving Voice to the Voiceless

This session aims to interrogate how French and Francophone women’s narrative (texts or films) portrays the marginalized, the repressed, and/or the underrepresented. Presentations will investigate works of authors/filmmakers who made themselves a spokesperson for the voiceless, casting light on stories that otherwise would have remained unheard within their own communities as well as globally. What does it mean to be “voiceless,” and how do these authors/filmmakers give value to the experiences of these people who, for lack of authority, education, or economic means, are not able to convey them on their own? Topics may include but are not limited to life-writing, translation, postcolonial and gender studies.

Please send a 250-word abstract in English or French to Viviana Pezzullo, vpezzullo2016@fau.edu by May 15, 2019, along with presenter’s academic affiliation, contact information, and A/V requirements.
