International James Baldwin Conference 2016

Thursday, May 26, 2016 - 00:00 to Saturday, May 28, 2016 - 00:00

AUP is proud to announce its upcoming conference “A Language to Dwell In”: James Baldwin, Paris, and International Visions from 26-28 May 2016.

The conference will represent a broad international and interdisciplinary explorations of Baldwin’s life and writing, with a special emphasis on the Paris he inhabited, both what it was and what it is today as a result of the marks he left behind, and on his experiences in Europe, Africa, and Turkey. Stressing the importance of James Baldwin, the conference hopes to be an international point of intersection for all those interested in Baldwin’s writing from literary and cultural critics, to political activists, poets, musicians, publishers and historians.  We seek the widest range of academic and public intellectual discussion around Baldwin’s work which has influenced so many and so much.
