Blanchot at 100: A Celebration
Join us in celebrating the 100th birthday of Maurice Blanchot (1907-2003), the great French theorist and novelist who inspired such varied and influential writers as Bataille, Derrida, and Levinas. Readings from Blanchot’s work will be given in English translation by Éric Trudel, Pierre Joris, and Charlotte Mandell; George Quasha and P. Adams Sitney will talk about making Blanchot known in America. Musicians from the Bard College Conservatory of Music will perform works by Schumann and Messiaen. Refreshments will be served!
