The University Paris 8 pays tribute to Joan Fuster on the occasion of the centenary of his birth

Universities.  Paris, 25/10/2022

The fourth edition of the international seminar “Gare de France” gathers in the University of Paris, in October 27th and 28th, prominent experts on the work of the Valencian writer, poet and essayist, a capital figure in the intellectual articulation of Catalans during the second half of the XX century.

The seminar is organised by the Laboratori d’Investigació de Literatura Comparada a l’Espai Intel·lectual Europeu of the University of Barcelona, with the support of the Institut Ramon Llull, the Acadèmia Valenciana de la Llengua, and the University Paris 8, which offers a course on Catalan studies.

The series of seminars “Gare de France” have the goal of analysing the literary relations between France and the Catalan literature from a comparative perspective towards their singularities, in order to better understand the shared narrative of a European intellectual history. From 2013, some of these seminars have taken place at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, or at the Centre d’Estudis Catalans of the Sorbonne.

In 2022, this academic symposium addresses the work of the most decisive Valencian intellectual from the second half of the XX century, Joan Fuster, an example of the deep relation between Catalan and French literatures.
Within the programme, we find a series of conferences taught by professors from various Catalan and French universities:

• Valèria Gaillard (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) : «Joan Fuster: une expérience partagée de traduction»
• Antoni Martí Monterde (Universitat de Barcelona) : «lire Joan Fuster, lire Michel de Montaigne»
• Neus Penalba (Universitat Rovira i Virgili) : «Joan Fuster: entre Sartre et Camus, Erasme»
• Ester Pino Estivill (Universitat de Barcelona) : «Joan Fuster et Roland Barthes, l’aventure de lire»
• Fabrice Corrons (Université Toulouse2-Jean Jaurès) : «Joan Fuster et le théâtre»
• Annick Allaigre (Université Paris8) : «Joan Fuster: Préface à Juan Gil Albert»
