Emir Delic

Emir Delic is a French professor at the Université Sainte-Anne (Canada) where he teaches courses in French language and culture. Anchored in a dual onto-anthropological and socio-semiotic perspective, his research centers on literary representations of identity and alterity in the Francophone literatures of Canada. His current work focuses more specifically on the minority subject’s relationship to time as depicted in French-Canadian poetry, prose and theatre published post-1970. His other research interests include cultural and literary theory, memory studies, philosophical approaches to literature, and poetics of literary genres (essays, storytelling, travel writing). Dr. Delic has presented his research findings at various invited lectures and conferences in Canada, the United States and Europe, and has contributed papers to several collective works and journals. His most recent publication is a book chapiter entitled “Mondialisation, minoritarité et modelages de soi,” in Globalization and Cultural Minorities, Sophie Croisy (ed.), Leiden, Brill, 2014, p. 31-54.
