Writing Matters: Scholars as Writers — Verse and Prose
March 31 | 4:00 pm – 6:30 pm EDTFree
In the spring of 2021, Writing Matters will bring into conversation scholars who lead multiple writerly lives, blending voices and genres. How does such experimentation invigorate our scholarship, serve our intellectual and critical designs, and reach different readerships?
For the second installment, our panel explores all that is verse and prose with:
Patrick McGuinness, Professor of French and Comparative Literature, St. Anne’s College, Oxford, author of Other People’s Countries: A Journey Into Memory (2015)
Renato Rosaldo, Professor Emeritus of Anthropology, NYU, author of The Day of Shelly’s Death: The Poetry and Ethnography of Grief (2014)
Moderated by Stéphane Gerson (NYU Institute of French Studies/French)
