Debarati Sanyal is Professor of French and Director of Berkeley's new Center for Interdisciplinary Critical Inquiry. She is affiliated with Critical Theory, the Center for Race and Gender, and European Studies. Her research and teaching interests include critical refugee studies; aesthetics and biopolitics; postwar French and Francophone culture; transcultural memory studies. Debarati's first book, The Violence of Modernity: Baudelaire, Irony and the Politics of Form (Johns Hopkins, 2006), reclaims Baudelaire's aesthetic legacy for ethical inquiry and historical critique; her second book, Memory and Complicity: Migrations of Holocaust Remembrance (Fordham, 2015), addresses the transnational deployment of complicity in the aftermath of the Shoah. She is completing a book on migrant resistance, biopolitics and aesthetics in Europe's current refugee "crisis."
