Alexandra Kurmann and Tess Do contribute to Modern French Identities series

Alexandra Kurmann and Tess Do contributed themed bio-bibliographical vignettes on the Vietnamese-Francophone writers Linda Lê, Anna Moï and Kim Lefèvre to the encyclopaedic edited volume on modern cultural production entitled Le grain de la voix dans le monde anglophone et francophone, whose title alludes to interviews with the theorist, Roland Barthes. The contributions allow for Vietnamese Diaspora writers’ voices and their diverse timbres to be recognised and heard alongside their artistic contemporaries. In particular, the vignettes reveal respectively the liminal, multidisciplinary, and translational qualities of the literary voices of these Francophone women writers.
