Cécile Duquenne will discuss the many ways literature can make a tangible impact on local and global politics, with a focus on French “littératures de l’imaginaire” (fantasy, science-fiction, young adult). Students would write a 500-750 word letter in French, about how their character decided or was forced to go abroad, describing their experience of exile into another society, followed by a Q&A session with the author.
