Panel, Lecture

Keynote address, part of the Rousseau Tercentenary Conference.

The philosophical writings of Jean-Jacques Rousseau have had a profound effect on political thought and his work still holds relevance 300 years after his birth.  This celebration of his legacy will begin with a welcome from conference host, CC Professor Eve Grace, and Zev Trachtenberg, president of the Rousseau Association, with a keynote address from Michael O'Dea.  O'Dea, an emeritus professor at the University of Lyon, France, is a prominent scholar of Rousseau. Among many other works pertaining to Rousseau that he has written or edited, he is the author of "Jean-Jacques Rousseau: Music, Illusion, and Desire," and the editor of the forthcoming new edition of the Essai sur l’origine des langues for the Classiques Garnier Œuvres complètes.
