Professor Nathalie Froloff will deliver the lecture, Life and Fate in Annie Ernaux's Work: Writing Women's Invisible History.


From the backlash of the #Me Too movement in France to the controversial reception of Annie Ernaux's 2022 award for the Nobel Prize in literature, this talk discusses how Ernaux's work reflects on women's condition in French society. Moreover, it introduces Ernaux's literary project, which blends collective and individual experiences into a universal narrative of life and fate. A light apéritif will be served from 6-6:45 pm. 

This event is brought to you by the Department of French and Francophone Studies, and is co-sponsored by the departments of English, Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies, the program in Film and Media Studies, and the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues.
