The W.T. Bandy Center for Baudelaire and Modern French Studies hosted a lecture by Jonathan Culler, Class of 1916 Professor of English and Comparative Literature and Chair, Department of Romance Studies, Cornell University.
The lecture, titled “L’hyperbole et l’apostrophe: Baudelaire and the Theory of the Lyric,” took place April 29, 2010, in the Central Library. The lecture was sponsored by the National Humanities Center, the W.T. Bandy Center for Baudelaire and Modern French Studies, and the Department of French and Italian.
The lecture was part of a continuation seminar on “Reading Les Fleurs du Mal” led by Professor Culler at the National Humanities Center last summer 2009. The 2010 seminar took place at the Bandy Center from April 29 to May 1 and provided the opportunity for past seminar participants to research in our unique French collections at Vanderbilt.
