CONSTRUCTION IDENTITAIRE ET COMPÉTENCE PLURILINGUE

Par Nathalie Auger
Professeur des Universités
Université Paul-Valéry - Montpellier III

Mardi 24 avril 2018
17h30-18h30
CRT-5.24, Run Run Shaw Tower
Centennial Campus, The University of Hong Kong

Lors de cet exposé, il sera question de revenir sur les avancées scientifiques en sciences du langage concernant la compétence plurilingue et pluriculturelle et son lien avec la construction identitaire. La didactique des langues, et en particulier du français langue étrangère, est donc concernée au premier chef par ces nouvelles approches. Des activités de classe seront évoquées pour répondre à ces nouveaux questionnements.

Pour la présentation, Professeur des universités en sciences du langage à l’Université Paul Valéry - Montpellier III, Nathalie Auger est responsable de l'équipe UMR CNRS Praxiling "Parole et discours : langues, langage et appropriation". Elle est directrice du Master FLE/FLE et mène des recherches sur l'enseignement du français prenant en compte les dimensions interculturelles et plurilingue dans différents contextes : en France, au Canada et en Europe.

POUR UNE PHONÉTIQUE CONTEXTUALISÉE

Par Jérémi Sauvage
Maître de Conférences
Université Paul-Valéry - Montpellier III

Lundi 23 avril 2018
17h30-18h30
CRT-5.24, Run Run Shaw Tower
Centennial Campus, The University of Hong Kong

Enseigner efficacement la phonétique corrective pour le FLE nécessite une double considération finalement peu développée : didactique et phonétique. En effet, dans l'histoire de la didactique des langues (du FLE en particulier), didactique et phonétique ne se sont que trop peu rencontrées depuis 150 ans. Elles sont pourtant l'une et l'autre indispensables pour un enseignement pertinent et efficace en classe de FLE. S'ajoute aujourd'hui la dimension "neurosciences cognitives" dont les avancées permettent de mieux appréhender à la fois la phonétique mais également la didactique des langues. Cet exposé, reviendra sur ces aspects pour expliquer en quoi la phonétique contextualisée est une nécessité dans l'enseignement de la correction phonétique du 21e siècle en classe de FLE.

Maître de conférences habilité à diriger les recherches en sciences du langage à l'Université Paul Valéry - Montpellier III, Jérémi Sauvage est membre du laboratoire CNRS PRAXILING. Spécialiste d'Acquisition et didactique des langues, ses recherches portent plus particulièrement sur l'oral et la dimension phonético-phonologique du français. Il est directeur pédagogique de l'Institut Universitaire d'Enseignement du FLE (IEFE) et directeur scientifique de la collection Enfances & Langages (L'Harmattan).

Exposition Auguste Borget au Musée d'Arts de Macau

Rencontre-discussion


La Chine de Borget
par Véronique Bui

Mercredi 5 octobre 2016
13:30 – 14:20
Rm : CPD G.02
Centennial Campus
The University of Hong Kong

De tous les pays qu’Auguste Borget a visités au cours de son tour du monde, la Chine est celui qui l’a le plus marqué, qui a eu sa préférence, qui l’a inspiré. Rentré en France en 1840, il tire de ses dessins, réalisés d’après nature, un récit de voyage illustré, La Chine et les Chinois, et des tableaux que le roi Louis-Philippe lui achète. Mais si Borget, en tant que peintre voyageur français s’étant, effectivement, rendu en Chine devient une référence en matière d’illustration de ce pays, sa vision émerveillée de l’Empire Céleste et son regard bienveillant sur les Chinois ne corroborent pas les représentations occidentales de l’époque. Plus encore que la question du talent, n’est-ce pas ce décalage qui est à l’origine de son peu de notoriété dans sa terre natale ?

Véronique Bui est maître de conférences à l’Université du Havre. Ses recherches portent sur la littérature française du XIXe siècle et se concentrent désormais sur les échanges littéraires et artistiques entre la France et la Chine au XIXe siècle. Elle a rédigé deux articles pour un numéro du Courrier Balzacien consacré à La Chine et les Chinois de Borget et à son compte rendu par Balzac (octobre 2012). Elle a organisé, en 2014, à la Maison de Balzac à Paris, le colloque « Balzac et la Chine / La Chine et Balzac ».

posted 17/04/10 : Talk: A Floating Sense of Selves: Kikou Yamata's Mediation of Japan

Date: 5 May 2010 (Wednesday)
Time: 4:30 to 6:00 pm
Venue: Main Building,
Convocation Room
University of Hong Kong
Language: English
All are welcome

Dr. Denis C. Meyer
School of Modern Languages and Cultures, HKU

Born in Lyon to a French mother and a Japanese diplomat, Kikou Yamata (1897-1975) has authored a substantial number of texts in diverse genres, some written in Japanese, the majority in French. This talk undertakes to read Yamata's literary legacy from three standpoints: her role as a cultural mediator; her position as a woman writer and her subsequent reappraisal of the reified Oriental femininity and, finally, her coming to terms with her French-Japanese identity. These three standpoints are, in fact, closely intertwined, for they all converge towards various types of othernesses: woman as sexual other, Japan as topographical other and hybridity as racial other. We shall therefore attempt to ascertain the extent to which Yamata's writings may convey an innovative perspective on the long-standing East-West politics of othering and its inferred motifs at work in literary fiction and elsewhere. Also, we shall investigate the theme of floating self in Yamata's writings, with a view to assessing its potential to break free from the dialectics of hegemony and alienation subsumed in the traditional East-West representation.

Dr Denis C. Meyer is Director of the French programme and a Deputy Head in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures. His present research and teaching areas comprise the political and cultural history of France, modern French literature, cultural mediation and representation and the didactics of French language and culture. His recent publications include the two following books (in French): A Floating World: Kikou Yamata's Cultural Mediation of Japan, Paris, L'Harmattan, 2009; and Keys to France in 80 Cultural Icons, Paris, Hachette, 2010.

Date: 14 April 2010 (Wednesday)
Time: 1:00 to 2:30 pm
Venue: Room CYC-A
Chow Yei Ching Building
University of Hong Kong
Language: English
All are welcome

Dr. Alain Le Pichon
Research Associate, European Studies
School of Modern Languages and Cultures, HKU

This talk is a personal attempt at characterizing the salient features of the French language as it developed from the Renaissance to the present day. It investigates the different forces at play, from the practice of writers and poets to that of vernacular speakers, from the desire for freedom expressed by many to the enforcement of linguistic rules and regulations decided by a central authority. It also investigates the unusual dichotomy found in the French language between two forms of orality – the spoken language and the prosody found in poetry and in the “Chanson française” – both functioning in structurally different ways, though allowing interplays between them as markers of class, education or humour. Finally, it will consider the differences in mental attitudes hidden in the architecture of French sentences compared with sentences produced by the English language. The talk will be given in English. The many illustrations will of course be delivered in the original French.

Alain Le Pichon was born and educated in France. After graduating from the Ecole Normale Supérieure at St Cloud, and from Oxford (Christ Church), he took his Agrégation in English and went on to teach at Eton. He subsequently joined an English merchant-bank in the City and later in New York. He now lives in Hong Kong and Paris and, until his retirement at the end of 2009, he taught British cultural History at the Sorbonne. He has published books and articles on British trade in the East and on Hong Kong's colonial history and society. His China Trade and Empire was published by Oxford University Press for the British Academy. It is the first edition of letters written during the period 1825-1843 by the founders of Jardine, Matheson & Co. This latest work – Bethanie and Nazareth, French Secrets from a British Colony – recalls the presence and activities of the French missionaries in Hong Kong. He was recently appointed Honorary Research Associate in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures of the University of Hong Kong.
