Paxton devoted much of his scholarly career to studying the Vichy régime of Marshal Philippe Pétain (1940-1944).

*10 June, 7pm Special evening dedicated to the founder of the original Shakespeare & Company, Sylvia Beach. Keri Walsh, the editor of recently released The Letters of Sylvia Beach will discuss the life of this formidable woman as revealed through her correspondence. Keri Walsh is assistant professor of Literature at Claremont McKenna College in Los Angeles. Founder of the Left Bank bookstore Shakespeare and Company and the first publisher of James Joyce's Ulysses, Sylvia Beach had a legendary facility for nurturing literary talent. In this first collection of her letters, we witness Beach's day-to-day dealings as bookseller and publisher to expatriate Paris. Friends and clients include Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, H. D., Ezra Pound, Janet Flanner, William Carlos Williams, F. Scott Fitzgerald, James Joyce, and Richard Wright. As librarian, publicist, publisher, and translator, Beach carved out a unique space for herself in English and French letters. This collection reveals Beach's charm and resourcefulness, sharing her negotiations with Marianne Moore to place Joyce's work in The Dial; her battle to curb the piracy of Ulysses in the United States; her struggle to keep Shakespeare and Company afloat during the Depression; and her complicated affair with the French bookstore owner Adrienne Monnier. These letters also recount Beach's childhood in New Jersey; her work in Serbia with the American Red Cross; her internment in a German prison camp; and her friendship with a new generation of expatriates in the 1950s and 1960s. Beach was the consummate American in Paris and a tireless champion of the avant-garde. Her warmth and wit made the Rue de l'Odéon the heart of modernist Paris.

*23 juin à 19h : Rencontre avec LAURENCE VIALLET, éditrice, pour la parution du roman de KATHY ACKER Don Quichotte. Lecture par CATHERINE CORRINGER. Kathy Acker, née en 1947, a été l’assistante d’ Herbert Marcuse tout en gagnant sa vie en faisant du strip-tease et en collaborant avec des groupes punk. Elle a dominé la scène littéraire new-yorkaise des années 90 et meurt d’un cancer du sein en 1997. Chez Kathy Acker, don Quichotte est une femme qui, devenue folle après un avortement, se lance dans une formidable aventure : se faire chevalier errant et combattre les enchanteurs malins de l’Amérique moderne, en poursuivant “l’idée la plus insensée que jamais femme eût conçue. C’est-à-dire, aimer”. Elle erre dans un monde de mensonges et de faux-semblants, marqué par la brutalité des rapports entre sexes, la violence sociale, l’irrationnel religieux, l’oppression. Dans ce roman, qui est sans doute celui de Acker qui pose le plus la question du genre, du féminisme et de la liberté féminine, l’auteure offre un texte visionnaire, drôle, fou, insolent, savant, polyphonique, poétique en pulvérisant les frontières des genres littéraires.

*30 juin à 19h : Rencontre avec l’association Mnémosyne et remise du PRIS MNÉMOSYNE 2010 : Allemandes au Chili de PAULINE BILOT. Née à l’initiative de la revue CLIO, Histoire, femmes et sociétés, Mnémosyne a pour but le développement de l’histoire des femmes et du genre en France, dans les universités et tous les lieux institutionnels, associatifs et culturels d’enseignement, de formation, de recherche et de conservation. Le livre primé cette année étudie l’histoire de ces Allemandes qui débarquent au Chili dans la deuxième moitié du XIXè siècle, actrices de leur destin et de l’histoire des deux pays. Mariées ou célibataires, elles choisissent de fuir l’Allemagne en crise. Correspondances et journaux intimes mis à jour dans cette histoire inédite de la migration se nourrissent de références aussi fondamentales que les notions d’ethnicité, d’altérité, de communauté, de citoyenneté et de genre, démontrant que l’”identité nationale” n’est pas qu’affaire de discours officiels tenus par les élites politiques.

CALL FOR WORK: Gangway #40 Expatriations: The expatriat edition. Samuel Beckett, James Joyce, Peter Porter, Germaine Greer, Paul Bowles, Ernest Hemingway, Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, Eugene Ionesco, Milan Kundera& all expats. This issue is dedicated to expatriates and expatriation in all its forms. From the Latin expatriare, ex (out of, from) and patria (pater/father; paternal; fatherland), the word expatriat literally demonstrates the bond that the subject has to the old land, the pater land, even as he/she is ex out of it. The expatriate is someone who must recognise their fatherland and their separation from it.Submissions are welcome from expat poets, writers, scholars, thinkers and artists on the theme of expatriation with only one caveat: insofar as expatriates are not tourists, this is neither an issue devoted to travel writing or tourism, nor to tales of extended trips, vacations or gap years. Deadline: Flexible (pref. June 2010). http://www.gangway.net/magazine/

ONE WORLD CAFE VIRTUAL READING SERIES PRESENTS Paris-based author HOLLACE M. METZGER, JUNE 1 - 30, 2010. American-born architect, author, and artist Hollace M. Metzger performs readings from her collected works. Chronicling a journey from the subways of New York, travels across Europe, and into Parisian life, Metzger's work is a portrait of transition and a search for one's creative voice. Receiving high praise for both her photography and poetry, Metzger published her first book, Observing the Labyrinth from Heaven (2007), followed by two poetry collections: Transcriptions of Time (2009), followed by Why the WilloW (2010). The audio books Observing the Labyrinth from Heaven: ParisRecordings (2009) and TranSynPhony (2010) were also released. During this period of writing, Hollace's poetry enjoyed exposure through radio play and vocal collaborations, including the European stage, cinema, independent films, gallery installations and with musicians around the globe. In addition, her art and writings have been published in literary journals such as 3:AM, Antique Children, Beauty of Washing Lines, Hecale, Heliocentric Anthology of American Poetry, Juxtapoz, Paraphilia, Pirene's Fountain and The Toronto Quarterly. In Paris, Hollace runs an independent architecture atelier based on renaissance principles of all arts utilized in creation and contemporary theory of these arts addressing sentiment, well-being and unity. She has begun work on her first novel and third audio book in addition to many collaborative projects currently underway. This is an online event at www.hercircleezine.com/one-world-cafe
