Her recent researches are in the field of contemporary Japanese cinema and Asian ecocinema. She is the author of Stanley Cavell, le cinéma et le scepticisme (Presses Universitaires de France, 2011), of Fukushima in Film. Voices from the Japanese Cinema (Presses de l’Université de Tokyo, 2015, L’écran de nos pensées. Stanley Cavell, le cinéma et la philosophie (dir., ENS Editions, 2021), and Le Paradigme Fukushima au cinéma. Ce que voir veut dire (2011-2013) (Mimesis, 2022). As film critic she has been a member of the editorial board and contributor at Esprit and Positif for almost twenty years.

She will draw on her recent essay on Fukushima cinema (Le paradigme Fukushima au cinéma (2011-2013). Ce que voir veut dire, Mimesis, 2022) to comment on different documentary film strategies to attend to the voices of Fukushima victims, to collect their testimonies, to listen to their voices (and to the voices of the dead), and to acknowledge their pain. These filmic strategies question the expressive possibilities of the film medium in the face of a major catastrophe, confronting a change of "paradigm" in our relation to our environment."

3:00pm-3:30pm  : discussion

3:30 pm-3:50 pm : Christine Détrez, Professor of sociology at ENS Lyon, Director of Centre Max Weber  :
My lost one : sociology and family secret"

How can sociology address the issue of silence, particularly when it is enforced upon women and children ? Is it possible to restore the voices of the deceased, and specifically that of a deceased woman, in the context of a family secret ? Using the frameworks of the sociology of gender and emotions, she will attempt to accomplish this.
