1. Errington, Jeffrey James. “Horatio Dawn” and “Invisibly somewhere between the two clauses”.

Degree: 2017, University of Adelaide

“Horatio Dawn” is a novel set in the late seventeenth century and draws on the figure of the pirate, scientist and explorer William Dampier and his “discovery” of Australia. This imaginary work examines the meeting of British people in the Enlightenment period with Aboriginal people and, in doing so, dramatises the complexities of first contact and its after-effects in modern Australia. The direct influence of Dampier on Australian colonisation was real. Adrian Mitchell notes that Dampier’s view of Australia as a land of lack (as a place that needed to be invested with labour, farmed, built upon and changed) “influenced the attitudes of Joseph Banks, Matthew Flinders and the early European settlers a century later; and over the years [Dampier’s] reservations found their way into school texts and informed the attitudes of generations [in Australia]” (ix). This view of the Australian land as needing to be developed resulted in both violence towards Aboriginal people and, as Henry Reynolds argues, denial of that violence around the end of the nineteenth century, as Australia moved towards federation (60). By 1962 this had, according to Stanner, become a “cult of forgetfulness practiced on a national scale” (189). “Horatio Dawn” starts with a pirate named Cutstone washing up on the shore of the protagonist Horatio Dawn’s farm. Cutstone, while recovering, shares stories about exotic places and mentions the great Captain William Dampier. After Cutstone departs, Dawn becomes sick with plague and subsequently experiences visions. He starts to lose his mind as he drifts from his family’s farm in the north of England towards London. He undergoes various picaresque adventures on the road. In London he meets a strange man named Joram who wears a plague doctor’s mask. Eventually Dawn finds work as a clerk at the archives of the East India Trading Company. The Company organises for Dampier’s release from jail in order to lead a voyage to New Holland. Once they depart for the new land, the narrative fragments. They capture a second ship that Joram decides to captain. Dampier slowly goes insane as he comes to identify with Jeronimus, the psychopathic murderer who led the brutal Batavia mutiny. During a wild storm, lightning strikes Dampier and he becomes incoherent. The crew is planning a mutiny when land appears and Dampier, Dawn and Samantha are put ashore. When his ship arrives, Joram starts to hunt all three. Dampier dies while starting a large bush fire. Eventually they make it back to London for a fateful return to the Royal Society’s headquarters and the archive. Dawn is captured, given a mock trial and executed. A final fragmented section presents the monster of William Dampier as he emerges from the grave and travels across the continent to arrive at Sydney and witness the foundation of the settlement. The accompanying exegesis starts with a general introduction to William Dampier, featuring major events in his life. I examine traditional Dampier scholarship and biographies to see how he is consistently presented in the… Advisors/Committee Members: Jose, Nicholas (advisor), Butterss, Philip (advisor), School of Humanities (school).

2. Bullot, Érik. Théorie de la démarche : Theory of walking.

Degree: Docteur es, Arts du spectacle : Cinéma, 2019, Université Paris X – Nanterre

La thèse sur travaux, intitulée THÉORIE DE LA DÉMARCHE, présente un ensemble de recherches et d’enquêtes autour du cinéma et de ses métamorphoses. La mutation technique du médium, sa dissémination dans l’espace social ont transformé nos usages. Nous continuons à appeler cinéma un médium désormais dissocié de son dispositif technologique. Il semble persister sous son avatar numérique à la manière d’une promesse, d’un fantôme ou d’un double. La série des travaux étudient cette transformation dans les relations du cinéma à l’art contemporain, son devenir performatif, ses marges et ses frontières. À la manière d’une histoire contre-factuelle, les travaux privilégient les figures oubliées, les impasses, les seuils, les trous noirs, les fantômes, les rencontres sans suite, les anachronismes. Un mémoire original est consacré aux relations de l’écrivain Raymond Roussel au cinéma, à la lumière des travaux sur le cinéma des premiers temps, l’archéologie des médias et le processus de remédiation. Si le cinéma est absent, au sens littéral, de l’œuvre de Roussel, il ne cesse de l’informer par le biais d’allusions aux dispositifs optiques, au cinéma des attractions, au cinéma vivant. À travers cette enquête, le cinéma semble être devenu, au fil de ses transformations et de ses avatars, un « signifiant flottant ».

Under the general title of “THEORY OF WALKING”, this thesis presents a series of previous and new research around the metamorphoses of cinema. The technical mutation of the cinematographic medium, its dissemination in the social space, have transformed its usage. We continue to call cinema a medium now dissociated from its technological device. Cinema then seems to persist under his digital avatar like a promise, a specter or a double. The series of essays presented in this thesis scrutinize this transformation through the relations between cinema and contemporary art, the becoming-performance of the film, its margins and its borders. Following the genre of counter-factual history, the different essays gathered in the thesis focus on the forgotten figures, the dead ends, the thresholds, the black holes, the ghosts, the meetings without continuation, the anachronisms, that are at work in the recent history of cinema, and may account for its mutations. The thesis comprises an original memoir devoted to Raymond Roussel's relationship with cinema, developed in the light of early cinema studies, archeology of media and remediation process. If the cinema is absent, in the literal sense, from Roussel's work, he is still present by means of allusions to optical devices, to the cinema of attractions, and living cinema. Exploring this labyrinthic questioning, I wonder if cinema has become, because of its transformations and avatars, a “floating signifier”.

3. Arami, Sara. Cartographies : rewriting the body and the nation in Contemporary Middle Eastern American women’s diasporic fiction : Cartographies : réécriture du corps et de la nation dans la fiction diasporique contemporaine des femmes moyen-orientales américaines.

Degree: Docteur es, Etudes anglophones, 2020, Université de Strasbourg

Cette thèse analyse les œuvres de fiction des femmes moyen orientales américaines contemporaines du point de vu de la cartographie littéraire. Les œuvres étudiées sont The Girl in the Tangerine Scarf de Mohja Kahf, Once in a Promised Land et West of Jordan de Laila Halaby, The Inheritance of Exile de Susan Muaddi Darraj, The Night Counter d’Alia Yunis et Crescent de Diana Abu Jaber. Les œuvres de fiction sélectionnées et étudiées dans cette thèse contribuent toutes à la remise en question des discours dominants qui dépeignent la diaspora arabo-américaine et suscitent le scepticisme des lecteurs en leur présentant des contre-histoires ou des versions alternatives aux histoires et aux identités qu'ils pensent connaître déjà. Nous pourrons retracer l'évolution des tentatives de réappropriation du mythe américain pour y inclure l'identité arabe, un mélange des deux (mythes occidental et arabes), et la réécriture des histoires arabes en fonction du contexte américain à travers les romans étudiés dans les différentes parties.

This thesis analyzes the works of fiction written by contemporary Middle Eastern American women from the point of view of literary cartography. The works studied are Mohja Kahf’s The Girl in the Tangerine Scarf, Laila Halaby’s Once in a Promised Land and West of Jordan, Susan Muaddi Darraj’s The Inheritance of Exile, Alia Yunis’ The Night Counter and Diana Abu Jaber’s Crescent. The selected works of fiction all contribute to the questioning of the dominant discourses surrounding the Arab-American diaspora. The skepticism of the readers is aroused through presenting counter-histories or alternative versions to the stories and identities that they think they already know. Through a close reading of these works of fiction, the various chapters of the thesis trace an evolution of attempts to reappropriate the American myth to include Arab identity, to a mixture of the two (Western and Arab myths), and the rewriting of Arab stories in line with the American context.
