We invite proposals for papers that critically examine the innovation and experimentation that characterise new and emerging forms of expression in the French and Francophone worlds. The relationship between reading and writing is constantly changing, genres are merging and new genres are emerging, literary forms and platforms influence one another, and digital media technologies are opening up new creative ways of telling stories. New forms of communication impact on social interactions and relationships, including political discourses and modes of engagement. Interlingual communication, creative and experimental uses of translation are reshaping the way we think about borders and identities, about the relationship of French to art and criticism beyond the Francophone world.
Proposals for papers, featuring abstracts of up to 250 words in either English or French, should be sent in word format to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘ASMCF 2018’ by Friday 2 March 2018.
