Event description
Panel discussion with Lucas Hollister, Hannah Freed-Thall, and Morgane Cadieu, moderated by Aubrey Gabel

About this Event

As ecocriticism has burgeoned in literary studies and throughout the humanities, its presence has been somewhat limited in the field of French and Francophone literature. This panel will open with a discussion of the state of the field of ecocriticism in French Studies and then move into case studies of ecocriticism coming to bear on 20th- and 21st-century French-Language Literature. By expanding ecocriticism beyond the Anglosphere, this panel will tackle how climate catastrophes have registered differently on the European mainland and throughout the former French empire.

Lucas Hollister is Assistant Professor of French and Italian Languages and Literatures, Department of French and Italian, Dartmouth University. Hannah Freed-Thall is Assistant Professor of French Literature, Thought and Culture, Department of French Literature, Thought, and Culture, NYU. Morgane Cadieu is Assistant Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies, Department of French, Yale University.

Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive ahead of time to secure a spot.
