Casting light on The Private: An Artistic, Multidisciplinary Exploration of l’intime

Presenting at Brown University’s Equinoxes Conference was a marvelous experience. My presentation focused on an analysis of Verlaine’s & Fauré’s Clair de Lune using an intertextual framework that employed theories of the Private of Arendt, alongside a focus on saisir l’intime (grasping the intimate). I had a lot of fun creating this interdisciplinary presentation that combined poetry, the pictorial art of the Fêtes Galantes, and music-making –all to get to the core of some concepts that in my view remain elusive in most scholarly analyses of these topics.
