A élargir -- La question déontologique. Trait identitaire du SNJ.
""Un journaliste digne de ce nom..." Par ces mots s'ouvre, en 1918, la première déclaration du Syndicat des journalistes, qui est aussi le premier code déontologique de la profession en Europe. Un siècle plus tard, on se réfère encore à ses principes. Pour ses fondateurs, il ne s'agit pas d'un métier comme les autres. Le journaliste est dépositaire d'une mission, celle d'informer ses concitoyens. Sa liberté d'expression conditionne la réalité démocratique, il doit donc être protégé. En propageant son idée des devoirs des journalistes, tout en luttant pour l'acquisition de droits dont ils étaient jusqu'ici dépourvus, l'organisation, rebaptisée Syndicat national des journalistes, contribue à construire la profession. Conduit par Georges Bourdon, le SNJ engrange les conquêtes sociales et obtient en 1935 le statut qui, toujours en vigueur, fonde la reconnaissance professionnelle. Au gré des époques, le SNJ s'étoffe, progresse et se refonde. À la Libération, c'est le temps de l'épuration, puis celui de la reconstruction. De mai 68 à Charlie, de la précarité des pigistes à l'expansion du numérique, les combats suivent ceux de leur temps. Cet ouvrage, réalisé en partenariat avec le syndicat et richement illustré de caricatures de presse, unes de journaux et images d'archives, retrace cette passionnante histoire. Évoquer cent ans du SNJ, c'est souligner un siècle d'action et de transformation sociale du journalisme. Mais c'est aussi comprendre un siècle de luttes pour la liberté d'informer."--Page 4 of cover.

Crime fiction is one of the most popular literary genres and has been for more than a century. At the heart of almost all forms of mysteries--from the Golden Age puzzler to the contemporary police procedural, from American hardboiled fiction to the Japanese timetable mystery--is the investigator. He--or, increasingly, she--can be a private eye, a police officer, or a general busybody. But whatever forms these investigators take, they are the key element of crime fiction. Criminals and their crimes come and go, while our attention is captured by these fascinating characters who exist at the intersection of so many different literary and social roles. 100 Greatest Literary Detectives offers a selection of the most influential, important, and intriguing fictional sleuths--amateur or professional--from around the world. From Sherlock Holmes to Harry Hole, Kinsey Millhone to Kiyoshi Mitarai, the detectives profiled here give readers a broader picture of one of fiction's most popular genres. Each entry summarizes the distinctive features of notable investigators and their approaches to crime, provides a brief outline of major features of their fictional careers, and makes a case for their importance based on literary-historical impact, novelty, uniqueness, aesthetic quality, or cultural resonance. The characters profiled here include Lew Archer, Martin Beck, Father Brown, Brother Cadfael, Adam Dalgliesh, Mike Hammer, Miss Jane Marple, Hercule Poirot, Ellery Queen, Ezekiel "Easy" Rawlins, Kay Scarpetta, Sam Spade, Phillip Trent, V. I. Warshawski, Lord Peter Wimsey, Nero Wolfe, and many others.

Animation has a lot to do with acting. That is, character animation, not the standardized, mechanical process of animation. Acting and animation are highly creative processes. This book is divided into two parts: From film history we learn about the importance of actors and the variety of acting that goes into animation; then, we will turn to the actor's point of view to describe the various techniques involved. Through exhaustive research and interviews with people ranging from the late Ray Harryhausen, Jim Danforth, Joe Letteri, and Bruno Bozzetto, this book will be the primary source for animators and animation actors.

  • Introduction. L'adaptation au prisme des archives scénarise cinéma de la Qualité française -- Écrire le film : scénario/découpage en France (années 1920-1930) -- André Gide, scénariste incompris ? -- Bernanos récrit par Gide ? Le Journal d'un curé de campagne adapté par Aurenche et Bost -- Le projet d'adaptation de Journal d'un curé de campagne par Aurenche et Bost : un problème de formes -- La genèse du Diable au corps (1947). Une recette pour un scénario de "qualité" ? -- Littérarité du scénario et genèse du film : autour du Rouge et le Noir (1954) -- Autant-Lara, Stendhal et "l'esprit français" -- Que nous disent les archives des scénarios des écrivains ? -- Réflexions à partir du cas Artaud -- Scénarios inadaptés : quelle lecture peut-on faire des versions non retenues d'un projet d'adaptation ?
"Le cinéma français d'après-guerre dit "de la Qualité française", longtemps éclipsé dans l'historiographie au profit de la Nouvelle Vague, plaçait au coeur de ses préoccupations la question de l'adaptation : Le Rouge et le Noir de Stendhal, Le Diable au corps de Radiguet ou le Journal d'un curé de campagne de Bernanos se voient notamment transposés à l'écran, et certains écrivains, tels Gide et Malraux, se prennent d'intérêt pour le 7 Art. nt à travers l'activité scénaristique d'auteurs de premier plan (comme le tandem Aurenche et Bost). En comparant les romans ou les pièces de théâtre à leurs variantes scénaristiques et cinématographiques, les contributeurs du volume examinent les fonctions de la référence littéraire, certaines étapes de la création (notamment le découpage technique) ou certains procédés narratifs comme le flash-back ou la mise en abyme. L'oeuvre filmique apparaît alors comme le résultat d'un geste nécessairement collectif, comme l'aboutissement d'un travail d'écriture mouvant dont l'étude nous apprend beaucoup sur le pouvoir respectif des mots, des images et des sons. Le scénario est souvent étudié dans une optique normative ; le voici envisagé comme le lieu des possibles."--Page 4 of cover.

Why are so many theatre productions adaptations of one kind or another? Why do contemporary practitioners turn so frequently to non-dramatic texts for inspiration? This study explores the fascination of novels, short stories, children's books and autobiographies for theatre makers and examines what 'becomes' of literary texts when these are filtered into contemporary practice that includes physical theatre, multimedia performance, puppetry, immersive and site-specific performance and live art. In Adaptation in Contemporary Theatre, Frances Babbage offers a series of fresh critical perspectives on the theory of adaptation in theatre-making, focusing on meditations of prose literature within contemporary performance. Individual chapters explore the significance and impact of books as physical objects within productions; the relationship between the dramatic adaptation and literary edition; storytelling on the page and in performance; literary space and theatrical space; and prose fiction reframed as 'found text' in contemporary theatre and live art. Case studies are drawn from internationally acclaimed companies including Complicite, Elevator Repair Service, Kneehigh, Forced Entertainment, Gob Squad, Teatro Kismet and Stan's Cafe. Adaptation in Contemporary Theatre is a compelling and provocative resource for anyone interested in the potential and the challenges of using prose literature as material for new theatrical performance.

Dramaturg Jane Barnette has put together an essential guide for theatre scholars and practitioners seeking to understand and participate in the process of adaptation for the stage. Employing the term "adapturgy" - her neologism for the art of adaptation dramaturgy - Barnette redefines the dramaturg's role and thoroughly refutes the commonplace point of view that adapted works are somehow less creative than "original" plays.The dual nature of dramaturgy and adaptation as both process and product is reflected in the structure and organization of the book. Part 1 explores the ways that linking adaptation to dramaturgy advances our understanding of both practices. Part 2 demonstrates three different methods - each grounded in a detailed case study - for analyzing theatrical adaptations. Part 3 offers concrete strategies for the dramaturg: dramaturgy for the adapted script; the production dramaturgy of stage adaptations; and the role of the dramaturg in the postmortem for a production. Rounding out the book are two appendixes containing interviews with adapters and theatre-makers and representative program notes from different play adaptations.Plays adapted from literature and other media represent a rapidly growing segment in the theatre. Adapturgy: The Dramaturg's Art and Theatrical Adaptation offers both practical and theoretical tools for understanding and creating these new works.

Advanced Consciousness Training for Actors: Meditation Techniques for the Performing Artist explores theories and techniques for deepening the individual actor's capacity to concentrate and focus attention. Going well beyond the common exercises found in actor training programs, these practices utilize consciousness expanding "technologies" derived from both Eastern and Western traditions of meditation and mindfulness training as well as more recent discoveries from the fields of psychology and neuroscience. This book reviews the scientific literature of consciousness studies and mindfulness research to discover techniques for focusing attention, expanding self-awareness, and increasing levels of mental concentration; all foundational skills of the performing artist in any medium.
