HARVEYRobert

 

I like to teach. My topics range from literary and film theories to modern and contemporary literatures and the interpenetrations of literary and philosophical discourse.

I like to think then write critically. I’ve done so, pretty extensively, on Jean-François Lyotard, Jean-Paul Sartre, Marguerite Duras, Marcel Duchamp and Michel Deguy. My most recent book is Witnessness: Beckett, Levi, Dante and the Foundations of Ethics (Continuum, 2010), which is being translated into French and will be published in 2013 with MetisPresses in Geneva. I’m also a major contributor (and the only Unitedstatesean) to the critical edition of the Œuvres complètes of Marguerite Duras in the prestigious Pléiade collection at Éditions Gallimard.

I like to translate too. And although I haven’t done much of that recently, I’ve translated Lyotard, Deguy, Derrida, Ricoeur, Foucault and other French thinkers.

Finally, I like to be in charge of new things. I was a Program Director at the Collège International de Philosophie in Paris, from 2001 until 2007, and I’m delighted to be one of CAT’s first chairs.

1988 Ph.D. University of California, Berkeley.

Appointed to Stony Brook in French (Department of French and Italian), 1988.
