The Library of Glissant Studies is a collective project which would not be possible without the help and support of dozen of dedicated individuals and institutions across the world. Our team aim at developing researches in the field of Glissant Studies by indexing information, and facilitating collaborations between scholars, students, and universities.
Doctor of Philosophy in languages and literatures (Romance Philology) Jean-Pol Madou is interested in relationships between literature and philosophy, poetics and aesthetics. He works on the theme of epic mourning speech in contemporary literature as well as on the temporality of the image (in the context of works by G. Didi-Huberman, W. Benjamin, G. Agamben). He also researches the Myth and the Community (Klossowski, Bataille, Blanchot, Derrida, Glissant) as well as the relationships between voice and writing in postcolonial literature (Antilles and creole, litterature-monde). He is the author of Edouard Glissant, memory of trees (Rodopi, 1996) and Errance and Epic (Glissant, Segalen, Walcott) (Editions Passage(s), 2016).
