Everyday life theories and practices from surrealism to the present by Michael Sheringham ( )
20 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the last twenty years the concept of the quotidien, or the everyday, has been prominent in contemporary French culture and in British and American cultural studies. This book provides the first comprehensive analytical survey of the whole field of approaches to the everyday. It offers, firstly, a historical perspective, demonstrating the importance of mainstream and dissident Surrealism; the indispensable contribution, over a 20-year period (1960-80), of four major figures: Henri Lefebvre, Roland Barthes, Michel de Certeau, and Georges Perec; and the recent proliferation of works that investigate everyday experience. Secondly, it establishes the framework of philosophical ideas on which discourses on the everyday depend, but which they characteristically subvert. Thirdly, it comprises searching analyses of works in a variety of genres, including fiction, the essay, poetry, theatre, film, photography, and the visual arts, consistently stressing how explorations of the everyday tend to question and combine genres in richly creative ways. By demonstrating the enduring contribution of Perec and others, and exploring the Surrealist inheritance, the book proposes a genealogy for the remarkable upsurge of interest in the everyday since the 1980s. A second main objective is to raise questions about the dimension of experience addressed by artists and thinkers when they invoke the quotidien or related concepts. Does the 'everyday' refer to an objective content defined by particular activities, or is it best thought of in terms of rhythm, repetition, festivity, ordinariness, the generic, the obvious, the given? Are there events or acts that are uniquely 'everyday', or is the quotidien a way of thinking about events and acts in the 'here and now' as opposed to the longer term? What techniques or genres are best suited to conveying the nature of everyday life? The book explores these questions in a comparative spirit, drawing new parallels between the work of numerous writers and artists, including André Breton, Raymond Queneau, Walter Benjamin, Michel Leiris, Maurice Blanchot, Michel Foucault, Stanley Cavell, Annie Ernaux, Jacques Réda, and Sophie Calle." -- Publisher's description

Traversées du quotidien : des surréalistes aux postmodernes by Michael Sheringham ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
4e de couv.: Le << quotidien >> est une notion-clé dans la littérature, les sciences humaines et les pratiques artistiques des XXe et XXIe siècles. Les mouvements d'avant-garde, surréalistes orthodoxes (Breton, Aragon) et dissidents (Leiris, Queneau), ainsi que les philosophes (Lukács, Heidegger) se sont penchés sur la vie quotidienne. Par la suite, quatre figures majeures, Henri Lefebvre, Roland Barthes, Michel de Certeau et Georges Perec, dont les intuitions et approches s'entrecroisent, proposent des manières de penser et d'explorer le quotidien qui ont inspiré et approvisionné la prolifération d'œuvres qui aujourd'hui encore s'attachent à sonder l'expérience quotidienne. Cet ouvrage retrace cette mise en perspective historique tout en apportant une réflexion originale sur la nature d'un concept difficile à cerner. Par le biais d'une approche comparatiste et d'analyses approfondies d'œuvres diverses (fiction, poésie, photographie, etc.), Michael Sheringham établit de nouveaux liens entre les œuvres de nombreux artistes et écrivains, parmi lesquels Raymond Queneau, Walter Benjamin, Michel Foucault, Annie Ernaux et Sophie Calle. Il propose ainsi la première vue d'ensemble des diverses approches et champs d'application de cette notion de << quotidien >>
