Dictionnaire de l'autobiographie. Écritures de soi en langue françaiseDuché, Veronique. "Pierre de l'Estoile," in Simonet-Tenant, F. (ed.,). Dictionnaire de l'autobiographie. Écritures de soi en langue française. Éditions Champion, 2017.

This dictionary responds to a triple wish: it first intends to establish the balance sheet of several decades of theoretical reflection, more than forty years after the publication of Philippe Lejeune's autobiographical pact (1975). It then aims to map a field of research whose extension is often misunderstood: autobiography in the strict sense, but also, and more generally, the writing of oneself. More information...

European Writers and Gender in Transnational ContextBourgeois, Betrand. "Ut pictura poesis : Huysmans, la critique d'art et le poème en prose," in Solal, J. (ed.,). Huysmans et les arts. Lettres Modernes Minard, de Classiques Garnier, 2016.

As an art critic, J.-K. Huysmans is interested in the artists of his time and those of the past. His discourse on painting and the other arts opens him to a free reflection on modernity and on the powers of literature which, like painting, explores its century and escapes from it.

Les Espaces du Livre / Spaces of the BookBourgeois, Betrand and Duché, Veronique. "When the reader wanders through the house-book: From Goncourt's La Maison d'un artiste (1881) to Danielewski's House of Leaves (2000)," in Chol, I. and Khalfa, J. (eds.,). Les Espaces du Livre / Spaces of the Book. Peter Lang, 2016.

The astonishing diversity of aesthetic possibilities offered by the book as a material support from the end of the 19th century to the most contemporary experiments, is at the heart of the reflection proposed in this book. The page, the leaflet and the book, the screen too, go beyond the framework of the codex and the bound book (fan book, leporello, collection of posters, book drawn, carved book, exploded book, digital book, etc.) by the heterogeneity of their materials, shapes and formats.

 European Writers and Gender in Transnational Context.Dutton, Jacqueline. "Marcelle Tinayre and the Dawn of Turkish Feminism: Motes d'une voyageuse en Turquie (1910)," in Other Encounters: European Writers and Gender in Transnational Context. Rohrig Universitatsverlag, 2014, pp. 145-175.

The nationalist projects of the long nineteenth century in Europe sought to define and contain the national self by positing concepts of national character and incommensurable national difference. Scholarship on European nationalisms has shown that national identity is inherently gendered, as can be seen from the gendered division of the public and private spheres, the exclusion of women from nation-building projects, the gendered politics of culture and from gendered allegories of the nation itself... This collection of essays, spanning the long nineteenth century from the revolutionary late-eighteenth century to the pre-WWI period in the twentieth century, explores the varied ways in which the transnational encounter contributed to or contested the gendered paradigm of nineteenth-century nationalisms.
