Office Hours with Professor Desormeaux, Johns Hopkins University

October 12, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Professor Daniel Desormeaux (William D. and Robin Mayer Professor of Arts and Sciences, and Head of the French Division at Johns Hopkins University) will on campus from October 10-15 as Halls Visiting Professor.  In addition to visiting classes and presenting a keynote lecture at the “Solitudes/Multitudes” symposium, Professor Desormeaux will hold office hours on Wednesday October 12 from 1-2:00 p.m. in room 730 Van Hise.  Please stop by to chat with him about your work, or his.

Here is an excerpt from his faculty page: “As a scholar of French who taps into the Caribbean cultural archipelago he was raised in, Daniel Desormeaux works as a comparatist primarily on French and Francophone literatures and cultures of the long nineteenth century. His versatile research agenda addresses a range of global issues and texts, in particular the historical and anthropological link between French and Caribbean literature and culture after the Haitian Revolution.” For more information, see: https://krieger.jhu.edu/modern-languages-literatures/directory/daniel-desormeaux/
