Alliance Française Mpls/St Paul

Alliance Française, le Département de français et d’italien à l’Université du Minnesota présentent une table ronde sur les nouveaux enjeux du débat sur le voile en France!

Si vous vous posez des questions au sujet des lois françaises sur le vêtement des femmes musulmanes (burqa, burkini, hijab), si le débat qui déchire les Français à ce sujet vous passionne, venez assister à notre table ronde. Nos intervenants se demanderont comment on peut assurer la cohésion sociale tout en respectant les identités culturelles et religieuses.

Bruno Chaouat Bruno Chaouat, Director of the Department of French and Italian at the University of Minnesota:

I work on 19th-21st-century French literature and thought, drawing on my interest in contemporary literary debates to explore the relationship between language, experience, and memory. My work has addressed the writer’s dispossession in the face of death and articulated theoretically the questions of testimony and experience with those of language and writing. More recently, I have reflected on French debates concerning Jews in France, the memory and the representation of the Holocaust, and the impact of the Middle-East conflict in literature and theory. I am currently finishing a book of intellectual, literary and cultural history entitled Morose Thought. This work engages with the traumatic memory of WWII and Collaboration in French thought, and ends on an analysis of the different literary and philosophical responses to what I perceive as a malaise in liberal democracy.
