Visual Cultures Workshop: Olivier Morel

12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
211 DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

An author, a source of inspiration, and a close friend, the central “character” of Oliver Morel’s current film project (Ever, That’s Her Name) is Hélène Cixous.

“Cixous” is known around the world for her legendary 1975 feminist manifesto “The Laugh of the Medusa.” Her close friendship with Derrida is compared to that of Montaigne and La Boëtie. She is also famous for her theatre work. Her most recent play will be staged at the Armory theatre in New York City in December. A scholar, Cixous founded the University of Paris-8 after May 68 alongside Deleuze and Foucault. One year earlier, she made a spectacular entrance into the literary canon with her very first book publication, Prénom de Dieu
