L’Institut du Tout-Monde Lecture:  Lyonel Trouillot’s “The Convulsions of the World”


Tonight (June 10, 2014) at 7:00pm, Lyonel Trouillot, Prix Carbet winner for 2013, will deliver ta lecture entitled “Les convulsions du monde” [The Convulsions of the World] at the Saint Charles Center of the University of Paris I (47 Rue des Bergers, Paris 15e, France). The lecture, cosponsored by the research team Art & Flux, is free and open to the public.

This lecture is part of the 2013-2014 cycle of lectures organized under the theme “À l’écoute des poétiques du monde” [Listening to the Poetics of the World] by Sylvie Glissant of the Institut du Tout-Monde (institute founded by Édouard Glissant in 2006).

Description: How many worlds in one are present in the ‘simultaneity of the non-simultaneous?’ Which are the resistances, always particular, under the weight of constructions of the unique as a desired end to the diverse? What are the counter-powers and weaknesses that carry in them, in their loneliness and betrayed echoes, “the convulsions of the world”?

[Combien de mondes en un seul dans la “simultanéité du non simultané”? Quelles résistances, toujours particulières, au poids des édifices de l’unique comme une fin souhaitée au divers? Quels sont les contre-pouvoirs et les faiblesses que portent-en elles, dans leur solitude et leurs échos trahis “les convulsions du monde”?]
