INTERFACES, The award-winning international journal of text and image, co-published, in French and English, by the College of the Holy Cross, the Sorbonne, and the University of Bourgogne, has done me the honor of making me a contributor. In the current issue, Maurice Géracht of Holy Cross introduces me and The Writer’s Brush interview series to the INTERFACE audience, and provides a link to, and the text of, my interview with the late Nobel Prize-winner, Derek Walcott. You can read what Professor Geracht said at http://preo.u-bourgogne.fr/interfaces/index.php?id=612.
You can have the pleasure of hearing Derek Walcott explain how light is the source of all art here:
Marie-Odile Bernez, of University of Bourgogne, and editor of INTERFACES, reviewed The Writer’s Brush in both its English and French editions, and you can read her insightful comparison here: http://preo.u-bourgogne.fr/interfaces/index.php?id=609.
And, of course, don’t forget to peruse the many fascinating articles INTERFACES has published exploring our visual culture. For nearly 30 years, it has considered the ways in which word and image connect, applying an interdisciplinary model, using the tools of science as well as the humanities.
