Event description

Description

The publication of Edouard Louis’s The End of Eddy (2014) was a disruptive moment in French academic and literary circles. More than a coming-of-age novel, Louis’s books reframes the act of writing fiction into a transformative social/political experience. In this talk, Tristan Cabello will explore Louis’s intersectional representation of sexuality, his redefinition of fiction writing and the politics that emerge from his literary work.

ABOUT THE LECTURER : Tristan Cabello is Assistant Director of the Master of Liberal Arts at Johns Hopkins University, where he teaches Critical Theory, Queer Studies and African-American Studies. From 2014 to 2018, he directed the Department of American Studies at American University, Washington DC. Born and raised in France, he received his Ph.D from Northwestern University.

This event will be in English. Light refreshments after the Q&A session.
