LECTURE / MEETING WITH CHRISTELLE REGGIANI
THE PHOTOGRAPHIC WRITING OF GEORGES PEREC
Saturday, September 10th, 6pm
Photography – shown or not, described or not – is very present in the work of Georges Perec (1936-1982), who became a photographer himself during his voyage by cargo ship to Ellis Island, in New York Bay. We will see that this photographic desire resonates deeply with the poetics of the writer: any photo, constructed by cutting, gives figure to the absence, thus joining the approach of a writing inhabited by the thought of the disappearance, the false, the rupture.
Christelle Reggiani, professor of French stylistics at the Faculty of Letters of Sorbonne University, works on the history of literary language in modern and contemporary times, and more particularly on the history of the language of fiction. Many of her publications have been devoted to the work of Georges Perec.
