1. Azcona Muñoz, Tabaré. The Poetics of Invocation: Haunted Writing and Political Subjectification in 21st Century Mexico.

Degree: MA, 2017, University of Colorado

There is a trend in contemporary literary production in Mexico that addresses a number of social issues raised by the so-called War on Drugs since 2006 –an armed, ongoing conflict that has triggered a generalized eruption of violence in the country. Drawing from a theoretical framework featuring spectrality theory and certain key concepts coined by 20th century French philosopher Jacques Rancière, this research analyzes an array of diverse Mexican cultural production –digital, literary, and journalistic, among others– from the last decade. This essay proposes that these works can be defined as products of haunting that attempt to endow the greatly marginalized social group of victims with social visibility and political subjectification. Issues of memory, language, and justice are fundamental to understand the political agenda underscoring these cultural endeavors that aspire to rehabilitate the sense of community. This work attempts not only to understand and identify such motivations, but also to advance a critique of such an enterprise’s contributions, its potentialities, and its shortcomings. Advisors/Committee Members: Leila Gómez, David Ferris, Brian Quinn.

3. Nesse, Erik. Vanishing in the Present: Disappearance in the Mediterranean French Novel.

Degree: PhD, French & Italian, 2016, University of Colorado

This dissertation examines the ways in which postcolonial Francophone novels use the concept of disappearance to make sense of contemporary experience. I study that trope with the aim of understanding how the political pasts of Algeria, France, and Morocco, changing notions of subjectivity, new, globalized socio-economic realities, and unstable forms of individual and social identity contribute to a present-day “structure of experience” where disappearance defines one’s mode of being in the world. The dissertation investigates four novels—Georges Perec’s La disparition (1969), Mahi Binebine’s Les funerailles du lait (1994), Tahar Ben Jelloun’s Partir (2006), and Assia Djebar’s La disparition de la langue française (2003)—in order to outline the nature and consequences of that mode of being and its connection to contemporary issues such as migration, trauma, the body, memory, and sexuality, and nation. Advisors/Committee Members: Warren Motte, Elisabeth Arnould-Bloomfield, Lydie Moudileno, Brian Quinn, Nabil Echchaibi.
