Travesties

In collaboration with the Segal Centre in Montreal, we bring you the latest edition of Sunday @ the Segal with Andre Furlani, a professor of English at Concordia University in Montréal, currently working on Samuel Beckett in the context of German literature and philosophy. He is the author of “Guy Davenport: Postmodern and After“.

His work focuses on modernism and postmodernism, including Ezra Pound, Milton, Brecht, and contemporary Canadian poetry. He lectures regularly on Joyce’s “Ulysses”, and on Tom Stoppard’s work, which is convenient, as this edition of Sunday @ the Segal is all about Travesties, the latest production from the Segal Centre.

Sunday @ the Segal is produced by Lucie Lederhendler.
