Nestled in the heart of the 6th arrondissement and just a few steps from the Hotel Notre Dame, the Théâtre de l’Odéon comes alive with performances by classical and contemporary authors. Regularly, the theater organizes meetings with professionals to share a convivial moment and exchange. February does not deviate from the rule with three encounters that promise to be exciting!
February 2 will be punctuated by a meeting with Laurent Jeanpierre, professor of political science, and Pierre Singaravélou, historian, on “The Shattered Unity of Knowledge about Man”. The two researchers will explore the adventure of human and social sciences between the First World War and the end of the Algerian War, building on colonial knowledge. “Human and social sciences”, invented in the Enlightenment, have been structured over time and divided into sub-disciplines. Jeanpierre and Singavarélou will discuss with you the future of these disciplinary fields.
Echoing the play “Un amour impossible”, Sarah Stern will focus on autofiction and the maternal source on February 21st. As a psychiatrist, she will try to answer a simple and complex question at the same time: how can romantic writing draw from the maternal source? A delicate subject that puts forward the relationship with the maternal figure, as timeless and frozen in images as it is.
Last meeting on 28 February, Adèle Van Reeth, Ali Benmakhlouf and Maël Renouard will speak on a topical subject: “Arts of living, ways of speaking”. From the written language to the language to the Internet language, the philosophical subject is vast and echoes our ways of speaking according to situations.
