French faculty candidate gives talk Wednesday

"Teaching for the World," at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 30, in 313 Merrifield Hall, will examine how gender, alterity, soclarité, language, and space are expressed in the postcolonial era through the work of filmmakers from Africa, the Caribbean, and former French Indochina. This talk by Serah Mosher, University of Arizona, candidate for a position in the French section of the Languages Department will also speak to the significance of autobiographical expression from the Mediterranean Arab world and the work of francophone artists including Maryse Condé, Assia Djebar, Fatima Mernissi, and Yamina Benguigui, key figures to understanding major world themes of the 21st century. Everyone is welcome.
