Time: 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

This lecture by Professor Fayçal Falaky will examine some of the stage adaptations of Jean-Jacques Rousseau's one-act opera, Le Devin du Village in Saint-Domingue and New Orleans. He will describe the reception accorded these plays and explain how the same Rousseau who influenced the slave revolution of Haiti could have also captivated an audience of theater-going slaveholders.
