    Sketching/Scripting Women: Dominique Goblet on her graphic novels

    Dominique Goblet

    Since the mid-1990s, female artists have become an increasingly visible presence in the bande dessinée (the French-language graphic novel), an art form with which women were previously rarely associated.

    Belgian artist Dominique Goblet began her career during this industry evolution and in this seminar will discuss her oeuvre, in English, including the recent translation of her graphic novel Faire semblant, c’est mentir into English.

    On the 'Sketching/Scripting Women' Seminars:
    Since the mid-1990s, female artists have become an increasingly visible presence in the bande dessinée (the French-language graphic novel), an art form with which women were previously rarely associated. Although study oof the manner in which Anglo-American female creators script and visually embody their experiences as women has developed to a limited extent in recent years (c.f. Graphic Women by Hillary Chute (2010); Graphic Details: Jewish Women's Confessional Comics in Essays and Interviews edited by Sarah Lightman (2014), research concerning the work of Francophone female graphic novelists, whilst slowly increasing, remains sparse. The primary goal of these seminars is to therefore to contribute to the development of research into female bande dessinée creation.

    Motherhood in Literature and Culture

    This event celebrated the launch of Motherhood in Literature and Culture: Interdisciplinary Perspectives from Europe (Routledge). Dealing with a range of topics including pregnancy and birth, affect and ambivalence, and family and legacy, this book – edited by Gill Rye, Victoria Browne, Adalgisa Giorgio, Emily Jeremiah, and Abigail Lee Six – provokes discussion and debate about that most crucial of human activities, mothering. The volume grew out of an initiative developed at the Centre for the Study of Contemporary Women’s Writing at the Institute of Modern Languages Research, School of Advanced Study, University of London.

    Co-editor Emily Jeremiah (Royal Holloway, University of London) was joined by Carolyn Jess-Cooke (University of Glasgow), who founded the ‘Writing Motherhood’ project, and by Lisa Baraitser (Birkbeck, University of London), a key thinker in contemporary motherhood studies. The discussion was chaired by leading journalist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown.

    In collaboration with Royal Holloway, University of London.

    Women's Self-Representation in the Digital Age

    Narrating the Feminine Self(ie)

    Hannah Westley
    (American University of Paris)

    This event will examine women’s self-representation in the 21st century. How have women narrated their real-life experiences, experimented with new forms of testimony, and constructed an identity both on- and off-line? How have new technologies been incorporated into women’s literary production? What interactions emerge in women’s self-representation between individual selves, communities (physical and digital) and national and transnational identities? There will be a particular focus on hybrid forms of self-representation, whether through incorporating different transmedial elements, or through blurring the boundaries between fiction and non-fiction, or through experimenting with public and private selves, in order to interrogate how women’s self-representation has evolved and how new strategies of selfhood and subjectivity have been created in the new millennium.
