Does the contemporary French novel have anything to say about climate change? This talk is part of a larger project that considers literature as an ambiguous witness of humans' fragile earthly predicament.

Four Exorbitant Readings (forthcoming, Northwestern University Press, 2019), Là où je ne suis pas. Récits de dévoyage (Presses Universitaires de Vincennes, 2012), and co-author (with Antoine Traisnel) of Donner le change: L'impensé animal (Editions Hermann, 2016).
