Writing the Holocaust and Gender

February 20, 12:00pm - 1:15pm
Manoa Campus, Henke Hall 325 Add to Calendar

Comparing two Holocaust narratives written by French women, this talk will highlight the literary devices used by both authors in order to gender and re-embody their stories, thereby moving beyond the status of victims. One central question will be the delicate function of autobiography as cathartic or destructive when it comes to (re)telling trauma.

After receiving degrees in translation studies, English, and philosophy from France, Nathalie Ségeral moved to the United States to pursue graduate degrees at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and at UCLA. In 2012, she was awarded a Ph.D. in French and Francophone studies from UCLA and taught at Virginia Tech for a year before coming to UH. Her research focuses on translation theory and on memory, gender, and historical trauma in the 20th- and 21st- century Francophone world.
