Witnessness
Claude Bernard
I teach courses in modern and contemporary literature, philosophy, and theory as well as film. Most of my research is conducted at the crossroads of literary and philosophical discourse. I've written on Samuel Beckett, Primo Levi, Jean-François Lyotard, Jean-Paul Sartre, Marguerite Duras, and Marcel Duchamp and have translated Lyotard, Michel Deguy, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Paul Ricœur, and other French thinkers. My more recent publications are linked to the images of book covers to the left. Witnessness: Beckett, Levi, Dante and the Foundations of Ethics, was published by Continuum in October 2010 and its translation into French as Témoignabilité appeared with MetisPresses in early 2015. Sharing Common Grounds (link at cover image, below) appeared from Bloomsbury in June 2017.

For as long as it lasts, I'm chairing the Department of Cultural Studies & Comparative Literature.
