[Appel] Francophone Poetry and Politics

Francophone Poetry and Politics: Across the Centuries

Trinity Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin

27 May 2024

Colleagues in the Department of French at Trinity College Dublin are delighted to announce its hybrid conference on francophone political poetry to be held both in person in Dublin and on Zoom on 27 May. This conference seeks to explore the relationship between poetry and politics from the early modern to contemporary eras. We invite scholars and researchers (at any stage of their careers) to examine the evolution, impact and significance of political poetry across historical, geographical and cultural contexts.

Keynote Speaker: Dr Nathalie Wourm.


We invite proposals for papers of twenty minutes in French or in English. 

Topics may include (but are not limited to):

1. Encomiastic poetry (for example, in the context of the early modern court)

2. War poetry: expressions of conflict, resistance and resilience

3. Political poetry across different cultures and regions

4. Poetry as a tool for political commentary and critique

5. The intersection of identity politics and poetry

6. Poetry as a medium for social change and activism

7. Political satire and humour in poetical expression

8. The role of political poetry in shaping public opinion

9. Comparative analyses of political poetry across centuries

10. The influence of technology and media on contemporary political poetry

Prospective presenters are invited to submit abstracts of no more than 300 words to the conference organisers (Dr Alexandra Corey COREYA@tcd.ie, Dr Dalila Villella VILLELLD@tcd.ie, and Dr Ashley Harris HARRISA6@tcd.ie) by 30 January 2024.
