The Graduate Students of
Columbia University Department of French and Romance Philology & New
York University Department of French are pleased to announce their first
joint conference

(Un) Framing the Text

Integral to any literary text is a double movement of framing:
enclosed in a certain space by a number of conventions and rules,
the literary work simultaneously seeks to outline its own subject
matter. Whether through techniques of interior self-reflection or
through an exploration of structural and thematic boundaries, this
movement of textual framing demonstrates writing’s constant
testing of its own limits. This conference investigates the
borders of the literary work by examining both the margins of
literature and the very convention of the self-reflective frame,
la mise en abyme. How can the status and validity of the literary
text be rethought from an exploration of the margins of
literature? How does the self-reflective text investigate the
limits and boundaries of literature? What can be learned about
writing’s ultimate interest in itself by an interrogation from
both inside and out?
