FREE Mini-Lecture – On Didier Eribon’s New Memoir

Didier Eribon

Didier Eribon is a French thinker whose works are discussed and debated at cafés — an intellectual historian who has often roiled the waters of the academic establishment. In this memoir — which is a big departure from his usual writing — he comes out as both gay and working class.

In this 6-minute video, prof. Richard M. Berrong reviews Eribon’s new book, which is called Returning to Reims — a reference to his upbringing in the city of Reims in northeastern France.
