Event Description

Organized by Frédérique Aït-Touati (CNRS, EHESS, Sciences Po) and Phillip John Usher (NYU)

As Emmanuel Macron’s call to “Make the Planet Great Again” reminds us, there is a cultural aspect to climate change—each culture maps its understanding of the physical world (nature, physis) in different ways. This conference-festival titled “French Natures” thus asks: what do French and Francophone literature, film, visual art, theater, and philosophy make of our planet? How can they help us understand our world marked by environmental catastrophe?

Sponsored by The Cultural Services of the French Embassy; NYU Center for French Language and Cultures; The Florence Gould Foundation; Department of French Literature, Thought, and Culture NYU; Centre de Recherches sur les Arts et le Langage (EHESS); NYU Center for the Humanities; La Maison Française NYU
