The departments of French Studies and Languages, Literatures and Cultures present:

Dr. Sarah Henzi

"“En français, s’il vous plaît”: Reading (and Translating) Indigenous Literatures in Québec"

Dr. Sarah Henzi is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of First Nations Studies at Simon Fraser University. She is also Co-Organizer of and Lecturer for the International Graduate Summer School on Indigenous Literature and Film, held annually at the Centre d’études et de recherches internationales, Université de Montréal. Her current research focuses on genres that are redefining and expanding upon what we have considered thus far as “literature” in the field of Indigenous Literary Studies: comic books, graphic novels, science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction, spoken word, and erotica. She includes in this corpus new media and audio-visual and digital narratives as well. Her work also seeks to promote the literary and artistic works of Indigenous writers in Quebec, given the fast pace of development of this field across North America.

This lecture is part of the Queen's National Scholar process in the field of Aboriginal Literatures in French and Migrant Literatures.

All are welcome
