Michel Monnin left us this Friday, November 13, 2020. He had just celebrated his 80th birthday on October 26 and was looking forward to spending time in Port-Salut. He who never sat down at a table if he was to be the thirteenth couldn't avoid the date fate had reserved for him that Friday.
archipelagos editor Kaiama L. Glover's latest book, A Regarded Self: Caribbean Women and the Ethics of Disorderly Being, will be available next month. Glover is the Ann Whitney Olin Professor of French & Africana Studies and the Faculty Director of the Barnard Digital Humanities Center, where she teaches and researches about Black francophone literature, colonialism, and postcolonialism.
