Comparing Domains of Improvisation: Jason Herbeck

Event Description:

Dr. Jason Herbeck joins Comparing Domains of Improvisation for a presentation and discussion on his work on French-Caribbean literature, Creolity, and their relationship to improvisational practices.

Jason Herbeck is a professor of French at Boise State University (Idaho). His research focuses primarily on evolving narrative forms in twentieth and twenty-first-century French and French-Caribbean literatures, and how these forms relate to expressions and constructions of identity. In addition to many articles and book chapters devoted to the literatures and histories of Haiti, Martinique, and Guadeloupe, he has also published widely on Albert Camus and is, since 2009, president of the North American Section of the Société des Études Camusiennes.
