MLLL Recent Achievements

Pamela Genova participated in an international project organized by Amber Fuentes, a French scholar interested in the work of André Gide. Her team is putting the final touches on a documentary film about Gide, in which she interviewed Gide scholars, university students at various levels, and even some individuals from the general public, from many places from across the globe. The film is named Après le livre, and it presents a variety of views of the impact of the celebrated Nobel-prize winning French author.
