« What does the work of Édouard Glissant tell us about the relationship between philosophical thinking and the history and memory of the Middle Passage? That is, how does the historical experience of the New World alter conceptions of knowing, being, creating, and acting? » #summerreading  #edouardglissant  #walterbenjamin  #derekwalcott  #shoreline  #futurity  #becoming  #abyss  #franzfanon  #martinheidegger  #aimecesaire  #georgelamming  #rhizome  #universityofminnesotapress 

The Library of Glissant Studies's team wishes to pay homage to the Cuban poet and essayist Roberto Fernández Retamar, who died yesterday in Havana at 89 years old. He was an emblematic figure of contemporary Cuban culture, and the director of la Casa de las Américas since 1986. The author of "Caliban" was also a thinker of the Caribbean, and a faithful friend of Édouard Glissant, whom he called "my brother", as shown by these few words written for the 1979 Carifesta. #edouardglissant  #édouardglissant  #robertofernandezretamar  #casadelasamericas  #poetry  #poet

LoGS's Log : L'équipe de la Library of Glissant Studies est heureuse de vous annoncer la publication des actes du colloque "Antilles/Louisiane : Un espace-temps partagé" organisé à Baton Rouge en 2016 sous la direction d'Alexandre Leupin et Dominique Aurelia. Dès son installation en Louisiane, en 1988, Édouard Glissant avait oeuvré à rapprocher ces deux espaces des Amériques dont il évoquait la relation poétique en ouverture des "Grands Chaos" : "Au large du Meschacébé, Père des Eaux. Le paysage, horizontal à vertige, qui suit le cours de la rivière Atchafalaya. Il rencontre celui, obstiné en hauts et abîmes, qui en Martinique va de Balata au Mont Pelé, par la route de la Tracée". Dans son sillage et en une manière d'hommage à sa pensée, cet ouvrage interroge et examine sous diverses perspectives (culturelle, sociologique, historique, philosophique, anthropologique, esthétique, littéraire) les liens constitutifs de cette "nouvelle région du monde" toujours à venir. #edouardglissant  #édouardglissant  #louisiane  #louisiana  #antilles  #martinique  #guadeloupe  #caraïbes

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of J. Michael Dash. As one of the greatest scholar in Glissant Studies, he was one of the first to translate, and comment Glissant's work in the United States (Monsieur Toussaint: A Play, The Ripening, Caribbean Discourse: Selected Essays). Over the past several years, Michael Dash was particularly interested in the aesthetic dimension of Glissant's thought, and he had planned to write a book about Glissant's relationship to painting, landscapes, and those he called "the best readers of space "(Lam, Matta, Cárdenas ...). A loyal friend, he accompanied Glissant during every editions of the "Prix Carbet de la Caraïbe" since its creation. By doing so, he contributed to broaden the influence of Caribbean literary works, a passion he also encouraged among his students. In addition to his words, we will remember his laugh, that we already regret not hearing anymore. The entire LoGS team sends its deepest condolences to his family and friends.
