Wolstein Building Auditorium, 2103 Cornell Road
Colette (1873-1954) started her career as a music-hall dancer and ghostwriter of her husband’s salacious bestsellers; she went on to become the most famous woman author of her time. Almost all her works draw on her life, and were consistently read as semi-disguised autobiography. With reference to the recent Kiera Knightley biopic among other popular renderings, Ladenson will discuss the relations between Colette’s life and her works, and what depictions of her scandalous life and career can tell us about the ways people read women’s literary works in particular.
