La Francophonie: Esthetique Et Dynamique de Liberation PDF Books

La Francophonie: Esthetique Et Dynamique de Liberation

La litterature francophone est l'un des domaines les plus recents et les plus florissants. Comme telle, elle suscite a la fois un interet croissant chez les lecteurs et souleve une problematique sans cesse grandissante pour les chercheurs; en l'occurrence, celle de la liberation et ses rapports avec l'ecriture et sa realisation en oeuvre d'art. Ce livre est le fruit d'etudes et de reflexions de plusieurs chercheurs dans ce domaine, qui, adoptant des approches differentes, analysent des oeuvres d'auteurs representant diverses regions francophones. Il nous revele que la liberation est intimement liee a l'esthetique et a la dynamique de la creativite artistique, non seulement comme motif ou thematique litteraires mais aussi en tant que motivation, voire inspiration pour l'ecrivain. C'est donc une contribution significative aux recherches litteraires francophones, qui entend a la fois elucider le rapport souvent ambigu entre l'ecrivain et l'oeuvre et satisfaire la curiosite des lecteurs.

Ghosts of the New City: Spirits, Urbanity, and the Ruins of Progress in Chiang Mai PDF Books

Ghosts of the New City: Spirits, Urbanity, and the Ruins of Progress in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai (literally, "new city") suffered badly in the 1997 Asian financial crisis as the Northern Thai real estate bubble collapsed along with the Thai baht, crushing dreams of a renaissance of Northern prosperity. Years later, the ruins of the excesses of the 1990s still stain the skyline. In Ghosts of the New City, Andrew Alan Johnson shows how the trauma of the crash, brought back vividly by the political crisis of 2006, haunts efforts to remake the city. For many Chiang Mai residents, new developments harbor the seeds of the crash, which manifest themselves in anxious stories of ghosts and criminals who conceal themselves behind the city's progressive veneer.

Hopes for rebirth and fears of decline have their roots in Thai conceptions of progress, which draw from Buddhist and animist ideas of power and sacrality. Cities, Johnson argues, were centers where the charismatic power of kings and animist spirits were grounded; these entities assured progress by imbuing the space with sacred power that would avert disaster. Johnson traces such magico-religious conceptions of potency and space from historical records through present-day popular religious practice and draws parallels between these and secular attempts at urban revitalization.

Through a detailed ethnography of the contested ways in which academics, urban activists, spirit mediums, and architects seek to revitalize the flagging economy and infrastructure of Chiang Mai, Johnson finds that alongside the hope for progress there exists a discourse about urban ghosts, deadly construction sites, and the lurking anxiety of another possible crash, a discourse that calls into question history's upward trajectory. In this way, Ghosts of the New City draws new connections between urban history and popular religion that have implications far beyond Southeast Asia.
