International Conference: "Marguerite Duras and The Arts"

Groupe "Australia"

 Organised in partnership with Société Internationale Marguerite Duras (International Society Marguerite Duras) by Dr Michelle Royer

Department of French Studies, University of Sydney (Australia),
29 June – 1st July 2016.


“By the time this conference takes place in 2016, 20 years will have passed since the death of Marguerite Duras. However this gathering will not be a commemoration. On the contrary, it will aim at opening new research perspectives on Duras’ relationships with the arts and will be an opportunity to explore parallels, influences, cross-fertilisation and exchanges between Duras’ work and the arts of the 20th and 21st century. Duras had always refused a narrow and compartmentalised definition of literature and cinema and although her work has often been associated with other art forms: painting, photography, music, poetry, the relationships between Duras’ work and the arts are still largely unexplored.

This conference will provide the opportunity for researchers to reflect on the interactions between Duras and the arts of the 20th and 21st centurty, to re-frame her work in the context of the artistic production of her era and to explore her influence on literature, theater and cinema, in France and across the world.”

 The works of Thu Van Tran will also be on display at two separate exhibitions during the conference. “Stamping To Reading”, will be open from 6pm on June 29 until July 2 at the Macleay Museum at the University of Sydney. “Duras Song” will be shown at the Alliance Française of Sydney on June 30, from 6.30pm onwards.
