On Tuesday, May 15th 2018 we invite you to the keynote lecture of the Faculty Francophone Seminar: ‘Aimé Césaire and the Hermeneutical Circle, or, How We Know What We Know’ by Professor A. James Arnold. The speaker will share his insight into the works of the famous Martinique author and founder of the négritude movement in Francophone literature.
