Récit de soi et photographie au 20e siècle
La mythologie individuelle surgit au 20e siècle en même temps que le culte du moi. En hybridant récit de soi et photographie, l’individu moderne met en scène l’histoire de son identité. Le terme apparaît d’abord dans le monde de l’art lorsque Harald Szeemann désigne sous ce nom les œuvres de Christian Boltanski et Jean Le Gac. Mais les photo-récits autobio¬gra¬phiques ont marqué tout l’imaginaire du 20e siècle, de Nadja d’André Breton aux aventures de Sophie Calle, en passant par le consacré album de famille. Caractérisé par l’écriture fragmentaire, l’archive et sa dimension intime, ce dispositif narratif en images conduit à reconsidérer le rôle de Mythologies de Roland Barthes dans ce processus de construction de soi par l’image. Cet essai retrace la généalogie, l’invention et la diffusion d’une nouvelle façon de se raconter qui interroge directement la représentation de l’identité depuis l’apparition de la photographie.
The Reception of Myth and Mythology
The Reception of Myth and Mythology highlights the routes and works through which the myths of Greece and Rome have passed into the cultural memory of Europe over the centuries, into its literature, music and art and its reflections on aesthetics and philosophy.
The nature of time has haunted humanity through the ages. Some conception of time has always entered into humanity's ideas about mortality and immortality, and permanence and change, so that concepts of time are of fundamental importance in the study of religion, philosophy, literature, history, and mythology. How humanity experiences time physiologically, psychologically and socially enters into the research of the behavioral sciences, and time as a factor of structure and change is an essential consideration in the biological and physical sciences. On one aspect or another, the study of time cuts across all disciplines. The International Society for the Study of Time has as its goal the interdisciplinary and comparative study of time: http://www.studyoftime.org
This series offers a new venue for high-quality original studies in Indo-European linguistics, from both a comparative and historical perspective, including relevant works on the prehistory/early history of the oldest descendant languages. It will also welcome studies in poetics and comparative mythology that include a significant linguistic and philological component. It seeks especially to fulfill the unmet need for analyses that employ innovative approaches and take account of the latest developments in general linguistic models and methods. The scope of the series is avowedly international, but authors are encouraged to write in English to maximize dissemination of their ideas.

The series published an average of two volumes per year over the last 5 years.
