Making Art out of Flesh: Exorcising Lynching


Dear Students,

Don’t miss the next DLS Lecture, in Collaboration with the BDA’s Festival of Arts week, entitled “Making Art out of Burned Flesh: Exorcizing Lynching.” It will take place on Wednesday, January 29th on the SciencesPo Paris – Campus de Reims, at 5:30 PM in the Red Lecture Room.

Highly knowledgeable in both the areas of expression and oppression, the theme of the festival, our lecturer, Professor Sylvie Laurent, is teaching on the Reims campus this semester. An associate scholar at Stanford Center for Poverty and Inequality, she is also currently a non resident fellow at Harvard’s W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research. She was a visiting fellow at Harvard in 2005-2006 on a Fulbright Scholarship at the African and African-American Department.

Professor Laurent has a Ph.D. in American Studies from the Sorbonne. She has published many articles on American popular culture in French journals. Professor Laurent has also appeared on France Culture, a French public radio channel, and on the European TV channel Arte.

It will take place in the RED LECTURE ROOM.
