The London Postgraduate French Conference 2016
Thinking work – in all its forms and modes, in all its intensities and absences – has been a source of constant inspiration and concern for French and Francophone contexts across art, literature, film, philosophy, and political thought. What does it mean to work, or for something to stop working? What is the subjectivity, the phenomenology, the economy, the psychology, or even the neurology of work?
This one-day conference will include papers from postgraduates working across French studies on a variety of topics, including the following:
- production & labour (pains)
- the work of genius, the work of art
- the industrial
- overworking, underworking, underperforming
- machines and technologies of work
- the work of depression, the work of mourning
- le travail de l'écriture
The conference will also include a keynote address from Dr Claire White (King's College London).
