CHR Fellow Talk: Associate Professor Jonathon Repinecz (French and Global Affairs), “Toward Peacebuilding Humanities: A View from the Great Lakes Region of Africa”

This project seeks to build a well-theorized bridge between literary and conflict studies through the increasingly important lens of narrative. By drawing the focus of peace activists in Central Africa to language, I hope to articulate a strategy of “narrative repair” that can be used in real communities. Repair is a central theme of this year’s CHR call for fellows.

The Zoom link is the same for all CHR Residential Fellow Talks and will be circulated weekly on Mondays and the day before each fellows' talk in the CHR newsletter.
