Victor Hugo: Man, Myth and Legacy

Thursday, June 1st 12:30 – 14:30 (EST)

Join us for a fascinating two-hour journey into the life, myth, and legacy of Victor Hugo, one of the most celebrated figures in French literature. In this webinar, Professor Bradley Stephens, a specialist in French literature and author of the biography Victor Hugo, Critical Lives, will guide you through Hugo’s life, his importance, and how he has been commemorated. Debunk some of the clichés surrounding this iconic figure and gain a deeper understanding of his work. We will explore the renovation of Notre Dame de Paris and the tension between creative freedom and respect for heritage.

Get ready to dive into a thought-provoking discussion that will leave you with a new perspective on Hugo’s legacy.

The webinar will include a 10-minute break and two Q&A sessions. Participants will receive a handout, a chance to submit question in advance, and the first 30 to register will get a free copy of the book.
