1. Allen, Jenna M. Negotiating Modernity: An Imam in Paris.

Degree: MA, 2013, University of Colorado

This thesis explores questions surrounding the necessity of travel in pursuit of knowledge, cultural negotiation as a continuous and interactive process, as well as the strong bond with one’s own culture that is indispensible to a successful negotiation. I analyze the 1834 travelogue An Imam in Paris in terms of the extent to which its traveler-author al-Ṭahṭa̅wī can interact with French culture in an improvisational way while remaining connected to his home culture. Al-Ṭahṭa̅wī figures as the site and agent of a negotiation with French knowledge with the aim to incorporate it into Cairo’s identity as a world power reborn. He surmounts the limiting perspectives of either French modernity or Egyptian traditionalist superiority, offering instead a vision of a blended future. I conclude this travelogue has strikingly contemporary implications as it helps refute current social and political discussions asserting the incompatibility of Middle Eastern and Western cultures. Advisors/Committee Members: Jillian Heydt-Stevenson, Lydie Moudileno, Warren Motte.

2. 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.
