INFINITE WALLACE / WALLACE INFINI (Institut du monde anglophone, Paris)

INTERVENTION DE FRANZ KALTENBECK, SAMEDI 13 SEPTEMBRE À 14H30

The Universities of Paris 3-Sorbonne Nouvelle and Paris 7-Paris Diderot are pleased to announce a 3-day conference devoted to David Foster Wallace’s œuvre, anticipating the release of Infinite Jest in French (Editions de l’Olivier 2015) almost 20 years after its publication by Little, Brown and Co.

During the last decade, David Foster Wallace’s works have growingly raised critical and academic interest in the United States and in European countries where Infinite Jest has been translated (Italy and Germany). Although his essays, short stories and even his posthumous novel have been available in France for a number of years now, neither readership nor scholarly interest seem to have significantly broadened in this country. The forthcoming release of Wallace’s Magnum Opus in 2015 at Editions de l’Olivier is the occasion to address a larger audience and survey the various published and presently emerging approaches to the novel as well as to introduce Wallace’s entire œuvre.
