October 22, 2021: How to Study Humanism and the Representations of Islam? A Dispatch from the Fronts of Today’s French ‘Culture Wars’

Join the UW French House for a guest lecture from Professor Tristan Vigliano (University Aix-Marselle) on Friday, October 22 at 4pm.

Tristan is a very good presenter and a brilliant intellectual. He is an erudite early modernist, but at the same time a person very deeply committed to the reflection on the state of French contemporary culture and politics, especially in its relation to Islam (he published a brilliant and moving book L’ Islam e(s)t ma culture on the wake of the 2015 terrorist attacks and a new book on humanism for our times is forthcoming). – Jan Miernowski, Douglas Kelly Professor of French, UW-Madison.
