Three Francophone Authors in Search of Distinction
February 29, 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Mark your calendars for Professor Lydie Moudileno lecture’s “Three Francophone Authors in search of Distinction” on Monday, Feb. 29th at 2:30 pm in the Stone Center in the Hitchcock Room in the Stone Center.
Professor Moudileno will also be available to meet with faculty and graduate students in the Graduate Lounge Monday before her lecture on Feb 29th between 9:00am-10:30 am.
Professor Moudileno’s research and publications focus on contemporary fiction with a connection to the (former) French colonies, including the Caribbean, Sub-Saharan Africa and hexagonal France. Her books include L’écrivain antillais au miroir de sa littérature (1997), Littératures africaines 1980-1990 (2003), Parades postcoloniales (2007) and as editor, L’Exposition postcoloniale, a collections of essays on representations of the African body ( 2006). She is the author of numerous essays on Francophone studies as a discipline and on individual authors such as, recently, Edouard Glissant, Maryse Condé, Le Clézio and Marie NDiaye.
Her most recent research deals with the status of postcolonial writers in the twenty-first century and, in general, on literary contacts between hexagonal France and its former colonies. She is currently working on a book project on French Atlantic icons of the twentieth-century.
