Hunting November by Adriana Mather Summary

Surviving a few weeks at the world's most lethal boarding school was one thing. But now comes the real test: Can November Adley find her missing father before her enemies find her?

Can one girl with limited training infiltrate a centuries-old organization that is powerful enough to topple empires? November only knows that she'll do whatever it takes to save her father . . . or die trying.

National Performance by Erin Hurley Summary

In National Performance, Erin Hurley examines the complex relationship between performance and national identity. How do theatrical performances represent the nation in which they were created? How is Quebecois performance used to define Quebec as a nation and to cultivate a sense of 'Quebec-ness' for audiences both within and outside the province? In exploring Expo 67, the critical response to Michel Tremblay's Les Belles Soeurs, Carbone 14's image-theatre, Marco Micone's writing practices, Celine Dion's popular music, and feminist performance of the 1970s and 80s, Hurley reveals the ways in which certain performances come to be understood as 'national' while others are relegated to sub-national or outsider status. Each chapter focuses on a particular historical moment in Quebec's modern history and a genre of performance emblematic of the moment, and uses these to elaborate the nature of the national performances. Winner of the Northeast Modern Language Association's Book Prize, National Performance is sophisticated yet accessible, seeking to enlarge the parameters of what counts as 'Quebecois' performance, while providing a thorough introduction to changing discourses of nation-ness in Quebec.

Masculinities in Twentieth- and Twenty-first Century French and Francophone Literature by Edith Biegler Vandervoort Summary

The study of masculinities and gender identity in contemporary literature is relatively new and, with each year of this millennium, gains momentum. Indeed, as the women’s movement becomes forceful in developing nations, the question of tolerance to gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transvestites undergoes a similar process. At a time when women refuse to be subjected to war crimes, when they begin entering the workforce and realize the need to support their families independently, and when they refuse to remain in abusive marriages or remain silent in countries, where governments ignore their needs, men and women are questioning the meaning of gender in their culture and often seek alternatives to established gender roles. In some countries, this entails organized demonstrations for additional civil rights, while in others, the expression of sexual freedom remains a question of remaining silent or risking public execution. Thanks to the scholarly commitment of its authors, this book examines the range of masculine expression on three continents: Europe, Africa, and the Americas. In this collection, they write about men’s past and present challenges, male friendships, and male immigrants and outcasts. Paralleling the independence movement of France’s former colonies, the goal of this collection is to continue the expression of freedom toward understanding and tolerance of all variances of sexuality.

Dramatic Licence by Louise Ladouceur Summary

Translation is tricky business. The translator has to transform the foreign to the familiar while moving and pleasing his or her audience. Louise Ladouceur knows theatre from a multi-dimensional perspective that gives her research a particular authority as she moves between two of the dominant cultures of Canada: French and English. Through the analysis of six plays from each linguistic repertoire, written and translated between 1961 and 2000, her award-winning book compares the complexities of a translation process shaped by the power struggle between Canada's two official languages. The winner of the Prix Gabrielle-Roy and the Ann Saddlemyer Book Award, Dramatic Licence addresses issues important to scholars and students of Translation Studies, Canadian Literature and Theatre Studies, as well as theatre practitioners and translators. The University of Alberta Press acknowledges the financial support of the Government of Canada, through the National Translation Program for Book Publishing, for our translation activities.

Code-Choice and Identity Construction on Stage by Sirkku Aaltonen Summary

Code-Choice and Identity Construction on Stage challenges the general assumption that language is only one of the codes employed in a theatrical performance; Sirkku Aaltonen changes the perspective to the audience, foregrounding the chosen language variety as a trigger for their reactions. Theatre is ‘the most public of arts’, closely interwoven with contemporary society, and language is a crucial tool for establishing order. In this book, Aaltonen explores the ways in which chosen languages on stage can lead to rejection or tolerance in diglossic situations, where one language is considered unequal to another. Through a selection of carefully chosen case studies, the socio-political rather than artistic motivation behind code-choice emerges. By identifying common features of these contexts and the implications of theatre in the wider world, this book sheds light on high versus low culture, the role of translation, and the significance of traditional and emerging theatrical conventions. This intriguing study encompassing Ireland, Scotland, Quebec, Finland and Egypt, cleverly employs the perspective of familiarising the foreign and is invaluable reading for those interested in theatre and performance, translation, and the connection between language and society.

Moving Target by Carole-Ann Upton Summary

Moving Target offers a rigorous exploration of the practice of translating for the theatre. The twelve essays in the volume span a range of work from Eastern and Western Europe, Canada and the United States. For the first time, this book draws together existing translation theory with contemporary practice to shed light on a hitherto neglected aspect of the production process. How does the theatre translator mediate between source text, performance text and target audience? What happens when theatre is transposed from one culture to another? What are the obstacles to theatre translation, and what are the opportunities? Central to the debate throughout is the role of the translator in creating not only a linguistic text but also a performance text, as the contributors repeatedly demonstrate an illuminating sensibility to the demands and potential of theatre production. Impacting upon areas of (inter)cultural theory as well as theatre studies and translation studies, the result is a startling revelation of the joys, as well as the frustrations of the dramatic art of the translator for performance.

De l’acteur vedette au théâtre de festival by Sylvain Schryburt Summary

Qu’est-ce qui a changé sur les scènes de théâtre à Montréal entre 1940 et 1980 ? Dans quelles circonstances la mise en scène au sens moderne du terme est-elle apparue au Québec ? Comment et sous quelles influences croisées s’est-elle transformée depuis son émergence dans les années 1940 jusqu’à sa contestation par les collectifs de création des années 1970 ? Quel type de jeu de l’acteur, d’esthétique scénique, de répertoire privilégiait-on et pourquoi ? Voilà des questions auxquelles Sylvain Schryburt répond dans cette première histoire des pratiques scéniques montréalaises au XXe siècle. Nourri par d’abondantes sources archivistiques, illustré de photographies rarement ou jamais publiées, cet ouvrage fait revivre quarante années d’activité théâtrale montréalaise. Il raconte les grandes troupes comme les petites, il fait entendre des voix connues et d’autres qui le sont moins, il dresse la cartographie d’un théâtre en pleine ébullition dont il ne reste aujourd’hui que quelques échos lointains. Professeur au Département de théâtre de l’Université d’Ottawa, Sylvain Schryburt a été rédacteur en chef de la revue L’Annuaire théâtral et critique aux Cahiers de théâtre Jeu. Entre l’histoire et l’essai critique sur les pratiques scéniques les plus contemporaines, ses travaux portent sur les relations entre l’esthétique et l’institution théâtrale. De l’acteur vedette au théâtre de festival est son premier livre.

A History of Canadian Literature by W.H. New Summary

New offers an unconventionally structured overview of Canadian literature, from Native American mythologies to contemporary texts. Publishers Weekly A History of Canadian Literature looks at the work of writers and the social and cultural contexts that helped shape their preoccupations and direct their choice of literary form. W.H. New explains how - from early records of oral tales to the writing strategies of the early twenty-first century - writer, reader, literature, and society are interrelated. New discusses both Aboriginal and European mythologies, looking at pre-Contact narratives and also at the way Contact experience altered hierarchies of literary value. He then considers representations of the "real," whether in documentary, fantasy, or satire; historical romance and the social construction of Nature and State; and ironic subversions of power, the politics of cultural form, and the relevance of the media to a representation of community standard and individual voice. New suggests some ways in which writers of the later twentieth century codified such issues as history, gender, ethnicity, and literary technique itself. In this second edition, he adds a lengthy chapter that considers how writers at the turn of the twenty-first century have reimagined their society and their roles within it, and an expanded chronology and bibliography. Some of these writers have spoken from and about various social margins (dealing with issues of race, status, ethnicity, and sexuality), some have sought emotional understanding through strategies of history and memory, some have addressed environmental concerns, and some have reconstructed the world by writing across genres and across different media. All genres are represented, with examples chosen primarily, but not exclusively, from anglophone and francophone texts. A chronology, plates, and a series of tables supplement the commentary.

L'âge de plastique by Daniel Laforest Summary

Le Québec moderne n’a jamais réellement habité la ville ; ou alors il n’a jamais habité la ville réelle. Peu importe, car cela ne l’a pas empêché d’en parler plus que de tout autre espace. Dans ce livre, je veux mesurer les conséquences de cette contradiction. Je veux chercher à lire la ville contemporaine au Québec, celle dont hérite le jeune xxi e siècle... Mais si on souhaite poursuivre ici, il faudra accepter d’abandonner le mot “ville” en chemin. C’est l’urbanisation et la littérature qu’il faudra aborder comme deux choses interdépendantes depuis les années 1960 au Québec. L’urbanisation et la ville ne sont pas la même chose du tout. La première est un processus, la seconde est son résultat. L’urbanisation est vivante et mobile alors que la ville est morte, ou en tout cas figée, abstraite. Bref, l’une existe, et l’autre pas. Il y a là un problème considérable. Dans ce livre, je parle d’étalement, de zonage, de friches, de banlieues, de chantiers et d’infrastructures — de ces espaces périurbains, depuis longtemps majoritaires dans le paysage nord-américain. J’en parle comme des lieux où la vie devrait pouvoir accéder à l’art. Et plus spécifiquement à l’art littéraire.

First published in 1990, The Encyclopedia of Homosexuality brings together a collection of outstanding articles that were, at the time of this book’s original publication, classic, pioneering, and recent. Together, the two volumes provide scholarship on male and female homosexuality and bisexuality, and, reaching beyond questions of physical sexuality, they examine the effects of homophilia and homophobia on literature, art, religion, science, law, philosophy, society, and history. Many of the writings were considered to be controversial, and often contradictory, at that time, and refer to issues and difficulties that still exist today. This volume contains entries from M-Z.

The Quebec Connection by Julie-Françoise Tolliver Summary

From the 1950s to the 1970s, the idea of independence inspired radical changes across the French-speaking world. In The Quebec Connection, Julie-Françoise Tolliver examines the links and parallels that writers from Quebec, the Caribbean, and Africa imagined to unite that world, illuminating the tropes they used to articulate solidarities across the race and class differences that marked their experience. Tolliver argues that the French tongue both enabled and delimited connections between these writers, restricting their potential with the language’s own imperial history. The literary map that emerges demonstrates the plurality of French-language literatures, going beyond the concept of a single, unitary francophone literature to appreciate the profuse range of imaginaries connected by solidary texts that hoped for transformative independence. Importantly, the book expands the "francophone" framework by connecting African and Caribbean literatures to Québécois literature, attending to their interactions while recognizing their particularities. The Quebec Connection’s analysis of transnational francophone solidarities radically alters the field of francophone studies by redressing the racial logic that isolates the northern province from what has come to be called the postcolonial world.

Romance of Transgression in Canada by Thomas Waugh Summary

From pornography to autobiography, from the Cold War to the sexual revolution, from rural roots and mythologies to the queer meccas of Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal, The Romance of Transgression in Canada is a history of sexual representation on the large and small screen in English Canada and Quebec. Thomas Waugh identifies the queerness that has emerged at the centre of our national sex-obsessed cinema, filling a gap in the scholarly literature. In Part One he explores the explosive canon of artists such as Norman McLaren, Claude Jutra, Colin Campbell, Paul Wong, John Greyson, Patricia Rozema, Lea Pool, Bruce Labruce, Esther Valiquette, Marc Paradis, and Mirha-Soleil Ross. Part Two is an encyclopaedia of short essays covering 340 filmmakers, video artists, and institutions. The Romance of Transgression in Canada is both a scholarly account and a celebration of Canadian LGBTQ films - moving images that have scandalized conservative politicans, but are the envy of queer cultural festivals around the world.

Post-Colonial Drama by Helen Gilbert,Joanne Tompkins Summary

Post-Colonial Drama is the first full-length study to address the ways in which performance has been instrumental in resisting the continuing effects of imperialism. It brings to bear the latest theoretical approaches from post-colonial and performance studies to a range of plays from Australia, Africa, Canada, New Zealand, the Caribbean and other former colonial regions. Some of the major topics discussed in Post-Colonial Drama include: * the interactions of post-colonial and performance theories * the post-colonial re-stagings of language and history * the specific enactments of ritual and carnival * the theatrical citations of the post-colonial body Post-Colonial Drama combines a rich intersection of theoretical approaches with close attention to a wide range of performance texts.

Stage-Bound by André Loiselle Summary

This acknowledgement of their dramatic origins has often led to criticism that these movies remain too rigidly anchored to the stage; too "stage-bound." Stage-Bound, the first extensive study of feature film adaptations of English Canadian and Québécois drama, challenges this reductive interpretation. André Loiselle demonstrates that theatricality is central to the meaning of these works. In the process, he reclaims these stage-bound films, which have generally been ignored by scholars.

The Cinema of Québec by Janis L. Pallister Summary

Quebecois cinema, too long neglected and too long unknown by American viewers, and often not appreciated on its own terrain, receives its well-deserved defense in Janis L. Pallister's The Cinema of Quebec: Masters in Their Own House. According to Pallister, the neglect of quebecois cinema comes through ignorance, sometimes to be attributed to the whims of distributors. She intends that this study will redeem quebecois cinema and restore its status as an overlooked cinematic jewel, to be valued for its own beauty. Major films, including Mon oncle Antoine, Les bons debarras, Le Declin de l'empire americain, Jesus de Montreal, Pouvoir intime, Un Zoo la nuit, Les fous de Bassan, J.A. Martin, photographe, as well as many other lesser-known works, are dealt with exhaustively. In addition, the gynefilms of Lea Pool and such women directors' films as Mourir a tue-tete and Sonatine, are amply discussed. Additionally, films about quebecois history and politics, films taken from the literature of Quebec, films about the quebecois society, documentary films, animated films - all aspects and genres of the cinematic arts as practiced in Quebec have a place in the author's work. Pallister treats the film production of Quebec from a historico-aesthetic perspective, but also pays attention to the historical, social, and political context in which this cinematic corpus was made. Although the book is largely concerned with films by French-speaking filmmakers, there is also a brief chapter on films in other languages, especially English.

Le Québec, connais-tu? (série 7 livres) by Robert Laliberté,Aleksandra Grzybowska Summary

Le Québec, connais-tu? comprend sept ouvrages numériques conçus pour les professeurs de français langue seconde ou étrangère qui souhaitent familiariser leurs étudiants avec le Québec et son histoire, sa littérature, sa culture ainsi que ses enjeux contemporains. Trois panoramas fournissent, par l’entremise de textes courts, clairs et concis, une vue d’ensemble de différents aspects du Québec. Intitulés Histoire et enjeux sociaux du Québec, Littérature québécoise et Culture québécoise, ils constituent une façon originale de comprendre ce qui distingue la société québécoise en s’imprégnant de sa riche tradition littéraire et culturelle. Quatre recueils de textes et d’activités sont quant à eux axés sur des thèmes qui, sans être exclusifs au Québec, lui sont intimement associés: Le territoire, L’identité, La diversité et La vie privée. Chaque module des recueils se divise en trois parcours (à travers l’histoire, à travers les lettres et à travers les arts) qui se subdivisent en trois sections distinctes: « Découvrir », qui expose le contexte historique; « Explorer », qui comprend un extrait d’une œuvre québécoise marquante, accompagné de questions de compréhension; et « À vous de jouer », qui regroupe plusieurs activités à réaliser en classe, suivies des corrigés. Pour enseigner le français en contexte québécois, Le Québec, connais-tu? est un incontournable.

Guide d'insertion des citations by Julie St-Pierre,Véronique Trottier Summary

Au cours de sa formation collégiale, l’étudiant est appelé à citer constamment des textes de toutes formes, issus de genres littéraires variés. Les ressources abordant le sujet de la citation sont souvent incomplètes, parfois même contradictoires, et il est difficile de s’y retrouver. Palliant l’inexistence d’un ouvrage de référence universel incontestable, le Guide d’insertion des citations prend position vis-à-vis des règles énoncées par les différentes ressources spécialisées. Les auteures de ce guide ont opté pour une méthodologie qui conjugue le souci de la cohérence linguistique et le respect des textes cités.Parallèlement à cela, l’ouvrage fournit des lignes directrices poursuivant des objectifs de clarté du propos et de simplification des formules. Cela en fait un outil complet, car il présente les règles générales ainsi que de nombreux cas d’espèce concernant les insertions plus complexes qui, bien qu’en marge des principes généraux, constituent des écueils fréquemment rencontrés. Il propose des méthodes parfaitement adaptées aux cours de français et de littérature du collégial, lesquelles sont également transférables à d’autres domaines d’études. Le Guide d’insertion des citations permet d’acquérir des aptitudes rédactionnelles essentielles à la production d’un travail de qualité. Facile à consulter, il est basé sur des exemples concrets inspirés de rédactions d’étudiants. En complément aux notions abordées dans la première partie, des exercices d’application offrent un apprentissage progressif de la matière. Ainsi, ce document pédagogique peut accompagner l’étudiant tout au long de son parcours collégial.

L'Inde et ses avatars by Karine Bates,Mathieu Boisvert,Serge Granger Summary

Terre paradoxale, multiple, à l’opposé de notre univers familier, l’Inde est largement perçue à travers les stéréotypes. On trouvera dans ce livre - le premier du genre en français - les repères essentiels pour comprendre un pays à la mesure d’un continent, dont les défis seront inévitablement les nôtres. Les auteurs exposent tour à tour les dimensions socioéconomiques, politiques et culturelles d’une Inde « globalisante » qui a marqué et marquera l’histoire tant par sa philosophie que par son économie vouée à la croissance. Globalisante aussi, car l’Inde ne se limite pas à ses frontières : sa diaspora et ses relations extérieures forgeront un monde bien différent dans les années à venir.
