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.
