Algeria, a Legacy

Talk & Readings

While the question of Franco-Algerian memory remains as fraught as ever, literary ties between both sides of the Mediterranean offer a welcome escape to these memorial tensions. The playwright and author Alice Zeniter, born in France to an Algerian father, and the Paris-dwelling young Algerian novelist Kaouther Adimi join Dr. Natalya Vince to discuss how these trans-Mediterranean literary ties continue to inform the Franco-Algerian relationship.
