Adam Shatz: The Lives of Frantz Fanon
November 29, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Please Join us on Tuesday November 29th, at 6:30 pm in Olin 102 for a talk by journalist Adam Shatz.
A World War II hero, pioneering critic of racism in France, revolutionary psychiatrist, spokesman of the Algerian national liberation movement: Frantz Fanon lived many lives for a man who died at 36. But what thread links these “lives,” and how are we to make sense of Fanon’s writings today, several decades after the collapse of the colonial regimes he opposed? This lecture will explore how Fanon invented himself on the page while responding to a series of extreme situations. It will also reflect on Fanon’s contemporary “after-lives”.
