Arnaud Viviant : On journalists and History

Arnaud Viviant : On journalists and History

The French writer Arnaud Viviant will take part - with Caroline Puel, reporter for Le Point magazine - in a debate at the Communication University of China on the subject of ‘Journalists and History’.

They will be along with famous French-speaking Chinese journalists Ding Yifan, a political sciences PhD student, and Zheng Ruolin, author of the book, published in China, The Chinese are People Like You and Me.

The Tsinghua University Sino-French Center in Social Sciences (CFC) organizes a debate on how French intellectuals in the 1960s and 1970s and Chinese intellectuals today refer to Maoism. How Mao's thought was or is used by intellectuals to further their own thinking and propose new and alternative approaches both in the literary and cultural field as well as the socio-political field?  Cui Zhiyuan will talk about how Mao's thought inspired him to propose original socio-political reforms for China. The debate will be moderated by Chloe Froissart, director of the CFC.

The master wordsmith will also speak about Etiemble – an important French sinologist and author of Forty Years of my Maoism – at the Institut français of Beijing.

Tireless television and radio mouthpiece and mainstay of the programme The Mask and the Pen, Arnaud Viviant is by turns a journalist, literary critic, columnist and author of numerous novels and essays. Able to capture the essence of a work of art without sacrificing a single detail, and to find beauty seemingly out of the blue, he is on the jury of the Prix Décembre literary awards, and in 2012 founded the politico-literary review, Charles.
