October 16, 2015 Assia Djebar: Patterns of Resistance Conference
The death of the Algerian writer and filmmaker Assia Djebar in February 2015 represents the loss of a major voice of world literature and one of the last great literary representatives of the age of decolonization. For half a century, Djebar explored her country’s past and present in novels, essays and films that combine poignant lyricism with theoretical sophistication. Counter-narratives to official nationalism, her works highlight the experiences of Algerian women before, during and after colonialism. In this one-day conference, an international group of leading scholars reflect on Djebar’s poetics, politics and legacies.
