“The End of Eddy”: Sexuality, Literature and the New Left in France

The publication of Edouard Louis’s The End of Eddy (2014) was a 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, Tristan Cabello will explore Louis’s intersectional representation of sexuality, his redefinition of fiction writing and the politics that emerge from his literary work.

Dr. Tristan Cabello is Assistant Director of the Master of Liberal Arts, where he teaches Critical Theory, Queer Studies and African-American Studies.
