Fall Roundtable: Roland Barthes at 100: Theory/Culture/Legacy

Miller Learning Center Room 148
Roland Barthes (b. 1915) was one of the 20th century’s most influential theorists. His work shaped literary theory as it shifted from structuralism and semiotics to psychoanalysis and cultural theory. His many important books include Mythologies, On Racine, S/Z, Image/Music/Text, The Pleasure of the Text, and Camera Lucida. This panel will discuss the continuing relevance of Barthes for theoretical research on literature and culture today. Panelists include Doris Kadish (Romance Languages), Jed Rasula (English), Andrew Zawacki (English), and Richard Neupert (Film Studies) moderates. The audience will be asked to participate in questions and answers as well.
