Literature and animality: zoopoetic renewals

What is more specifically human – more characteristic of our species – than literature? Myths, poems and novels bring our linguistic practices to their highest degree of complexity: classical rhythms, unrealistic metaphors, texts that echo each other seem to oppose literature to animality.
This division needs to be put into perspective. Based on the expressiveness of animals, on our own animality, on our roaring and snaking alphabet, on the self-portraits of writers as owls, ants or flies, the talk will explain what “zoopoetics” is. Literature, far from cutting us off from the world, is a populated, welcoming and vital ark.

On 3 March from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm, PhD students from Ecole Normale Supérieure PSL (Ange Pottin post-doc, Willy Ramos Delvalle and Yangjie Zhao),, the University of Glasgow, the University of Edinburgh, and the University of St Andrews will have the opportunity to present a paper and discuss their research together and with their supervisors, for a constructive Franco-Scottish and interdisciplinary dialogue in environmental humanities.

This event takes place as part of the Mois de la Francophonie UK
