Olios: Drop-in classes led by professors
What is it to have a home? Homebirds, homebodies, homelovings: what are the benefits of a stay-at-home life? Mona Chollet takes us on a journey about how time and space have been transfigured, even disfigured, in today's ultra-productive society.
In this online Olio, we'll be discussing what it means to be at home. As our guide, we'll use the essay "Chez soi" by Mona Chollet. No need to read the essay beforehand (mostly because it's in French).
