Tristan Cabello The End of Eddy Talk
The publication of Edouard Louis’s The End of Eddy (2014) was disruptive moment in French academic and literary circles. More than a coming-of-age novel, Louis’s books reframes the act of writing fiction into a transformative social/political experience. In this talk, we will explore Louis’s intersectional representation of sexuality, his redefinition of fiction writing and the politics that emerge from his literary work.

Born and raised in France, Tristan Cabello is Assistant Director of the Master of Liberal Arts program.
