Language and Film: La Nouba des femmes du Mont-Chenoua  | Events Calendar


Clinton Hill / Fort Green

Pratt Institute | 200 Willoughby Ave

Location: Library: Alumni Reading Room

Humanities and Media Studies, the Writing MFA, and the Pratt Institute Libraries present a new and exciting Series: Language and Film. Our first event celebrates International Women’s History Month with La Nouba des femmes du Mont-Chenoua, 1977, by the famed Algerian feminist novelist Assia Djebar, recently acquired by Visual and Multimedia Resources.

The event will be moderated by the scholar Jill Jarvis (BIO) and we will read a statement by Samira Negrouche francophone Algerian writer and poet, who visited Pratt last December, about the film’s influence on her poetry and thinking.

Refreshments will be served.
