Hadrien Fontanaud (Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3), • “Lawrence of Arabia (Lean, 1962): Reframing Imperialism and the Poetics of the Desert”

Filmed in 1962, Lawrence of Arabia offers a critical look on British imperialism. Yet this British and American co-production draws on the Empire films of the 1930’s: it focuses on one of the battlefronts of the British Empire in Egypt as well as in the Middle East, and shows parallel with American westerns by emphasizing the confrontation between Whites Europeans and Natives. Many others elements reminds us of the western such as trains attacks, epic rides and more importantly the lonely hero and the wide-open spaces. This presentation aims to show how the ...

Céline Murillo (Université Sorbonne Paris Cité), “The Mimic Indians in Westerns : a Transnational Concept”

When Nobody, the native American character in Dead Man (Jim Jarmusch, 1995), recounts his travels as “an exhibit” in Europe, he explains that, to avoid attracting the attention he started to imitate the people around him.  He declares: “I mimicked them”. Homi Bhabha post-colonial concept of “mimic men” (The Location of Culture, 1994, p.125) is linked to language politics in 19th century India, where an elite was educated in English only, as demanded by Thomas Babington Macaulay in his "Minute on Indian Education" (1835).

Costanza Salvi (Bologna University), “John Ford’s Cavalry Trilogy: American Imperialism or Irish Republicanism?”

Loosely based on James Warner Bellah’s stories published on Saturday Evening Post, Fort Apache (1948), She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949), and Rio Grande (1950) are pervaded with a jingoism totally associated with military life and community as well as the idea of expansion and taming of the frontier.

Marek Paryz (University of Warsaw), “Unwanted Salvation: The Use of the Savior Formula in Andreas Prochaska’s The Dark Valley (2014)”

The Austrian film The Dark Valley (dir. Andreas Prochaska, 2014) provides a unique attestation to the applicability of the convention of the Western for problematizing context-specific social and cultural issues. The film features an American man named Greider who arrives at a godforsaken Austrian village located in the mountains. As it turns out later, he comes there to avenge the father who had been killed before his birth. The village community is terrorized by the Brenner family, the descendants of the village’s founders. The Brenner patriarch and his sons follow very special rules ...
