- As part of Gouges Olympus Days. In the auditorium of the Old College, three conferences on the theme of the body. Free admission. 2 p.m. - Introduction and moderation Proposed by Evelyne Morin Rotureau and Geneviève André-Acquier 18th century: philosophers and doctors invent "female nature" 2:15 p.m. - The natural body By Élise Thiébaut, journalist and author of essays, news or chronicles on his Médiapart blog. She recently published Ceci est mon sang (La Découverte, 2017), Les rules… Quelle aventure (illustrated by Mirion Malle - la ville brûlle, 2017), and Nos Ancêtres les Gauloises, an autobiography of France (La Découverte, 2019) . What could be more natural than the rules? What could be more artificial than a taboo? The rise of ecofeminism is revealing a new way of seeing, living and inhabiting the female body, between technical progress (PMA, GPA, hormones and transidentity) and return to a natural fantasy or reinvented. 15h: The magnified body By Frédéric Maget, president of the Society of Colette's friends and director of the Colette house. He devoted numerous articles and books to the author of Chéri and La Maison de Claudine, including The Seven Lives of Colette (Flammarion), A Parisian in the Great War (L'Herne), The Second Profession of the Writer (L'Herne), Letters to Missy (with S. Bordji, Flammarion), Colette journalist (with G. Bonal, Seuil), etc. He also chairs the association Les Amis de Christine de Rivoyre and directs the International Festival of Women's Writings. Tested against the stage, Colette has conquered a new way of being, of existing, and undoubtedly of creating. Exposed, staged, assumed, freed from the constraints imposed by morality, education, by a husband or a mother, the body was for her an instrument of revolt, subversion and emancipation. 3:45 pm: The martyred body By Maître Hamuli Rety, international lawyer, President of the lawyers of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda responsible for trying the perpetrators of serious crimes including genocide. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, for 20 years, women have been raped to dissuade all forms of resistance from the populations, in order to facilitate the conquest of power and territories. However the judgment of the executioners is neither desired nor acclaimed by the International Community. If judgments have been rendered in Nuremberg, The Hague for the former Yugoslavia, Iraq, Lebanon, Cambodia, Sierra Leone and Arusha for the genocide in Rwanda, how to explain the gravity and the screed of lead on the crimes that have persisted for 20 years in the Democratic Republic of Congo? Find the mistake.
