Sponsored by the Research Center “Littérature française XIXe-XXIe siècles” (University of Paris-Sorbonne)
And W. T. Bandy Center for Baudelaire and Modern French Studies (Vanderbilt University)
After 150 years of translation and criticism, Charles Baudelaire's work is no longer simply a classic in French literature but a monument of world literature. We thought it would be interesting to foster a reflection on this international dimension by focusing on translations of his works and criticism traditions in Baudelaire's studies. The conference that will be held in December 9th et 10th 2011 could thus approach the following questions: the poet's fortune in various part of the world; the countless translations of Baudelaire's works; the relationships between Baudelaire's art critic and art history; questions of race, gender, sexuality and empire in Baudelaire's studies; the role of of Baudelairian journals (L'Année Baudelaire, the Bulletin baudelairien, the Etudes baudelairiennes) and research centers (especially the W. T. Bandy center for Baudelaire and modern French studies), as well as the great editing tradition of Baudelaire's work and/or the poet's presence in education programs, in France and other countries.
