When and Where

Monday, March 21, 2022 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Online Event


Don Deere, Wesleyan University


Édouard Glissant is known for articulating a number of concepts, including Relation, opacity, and the all-world or world entire (tout-monde). He also made an important distinction regarding time, insisting on the difference between History (as an official story) and histories (as the stories of peoples, often relayed orally as opposed to being put down in writing). But what about his theories of space, including land? This conversation considers what Glissant offers for thinking about space and place.
