Event description

Description

This Fall semester, the Henri Peyre French Institute, the PhD Program in French, and the Center for the Humanities at the Graduate Center, CUNY will host a series of seminars honoring the legacy of Édouard Glissant, who taught here from 1995 to 2011. Each of the informal seminars—held in the French Department thesis room where Glissant taught––will be led by one of his former students on a topic of their choosing, ranging from their personal experience with Glissant to the themes in his work and its ongoing influence across disciplines. Offering an intimate at-one-remove experience, these one-hour seminars will be open to 10–15 participants. To attend, participants must RSVP on Eventbrite (see links to RSVP below). Maximum capacity is 10–15 persons due to the size of the seminar room.

Tuesday, November 27, 1-2pm: Led by Hamid Bahri, Associate Professor of French and Francophone Studies, York College, CUNY. To attend, you must RSVP for this seminar.

These seminars are in tandem with the exhibition Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant: Trembling Thinking at the Americas Society (Oct. 9, 2018–Jan. 12, 2019), and the symposium "Édouard Glissant's Tout-Monde: Transnational Perspectives" at the Graduate Center, CUNY (Fri, Nov 16, 2018, 12:45 PM – 7:00 PM).
