Alors que les notions d'echange et de changement sont l'objet d'etudes frequentes dans les domaines economiques, linguistiques ou encore anthropologiques, elles ne sont que rarement prises en compte per se dans le domaine litteraire. En insistant sur les ambiguites, les chevauchements et les interactions entre ces deux themes dans la litterature francaise de l'epoque medievale a nos jours, ce recueil d'articles demontre leur porosite et leur instabilite. Le terme 'e/change' - ecrit avec une barre oblique - entend souligner ainsi la tension inherente a la litterature francaise que revele ce volume issu d'une conference qui s'est tenue a Queen's University Belfast en Mai 2008 sur ce meme theme.
Whereas the notions of exchange and change are often the subject of enquiry in the context of financial, linguistic or anthropological discourses, they are rarely analysed for the essential role they play in the literary domain. By exploring the ways in which change and exchange interact in French literature from the medieval period to the present day, this volume explores their fluidity and instability. Drawing on a number of conference papers presented at Queen's University Belfast in May 2008 on the theme of ex/change - a term that deliberately draws attention to the tension between these notions - the essays presented here shed new light on a neglected but underlying theme in French literature.
