The Resistance to Fundamentalism in Salman Rushdie's The Moor's Last Sigh, The Ground Beneath her Feet, and Shalimar the Clown.

Nilufer Bharucha



In her lecture, Nilufer Bharucha shows how Salman Rushdie exercises his freedom as a writer in order to defend himself against fundamentalism. She focuses on Rushdie's post fatwa fiction, with a particular emphasis on The Moor's Last Sigh, The Ground Beneath her Feet, and Shalimar the Clown.

Great faith in books: the value of literature according to Hanif Kureishi's My Ear at His Heart.

Frédéric Regard



Frédéric Regard focuses on the notion of values in literature and raises the issue of  the potential role of the writer in a struggle against fundamentalism. Based on a close study of Hanif Kureishi's partly autobiographical book, My Ear at His Heart, this lecture invites us to question the traditional opposition between art and life, creative fiction and political stance.

Individualism and Fundamentalism: the writings of Swift and Defoe.

Anne Dromart



In the light of the religious tensions between Anglicans, dissenters and Catholics, Anne Dromart inquires into the notions of fundamentalism and individualism in the works of Jonathan Swift and Daniel Defoe. Relying on both their pamphlets and their works of fiction, she explores the way Swift's and Defoe's writings illustrate their points of view on religious tolerance and humanism.
