Michel Deguy receives Honorary degree

Michel Deguy receives Honorary degree at the University of King's College Encaenia 2016
Michel Deguy was born in Paris, France, and has occupied a unique place on the French intellectual scene since the late 1950s. His work as a professor, writer, editor, translator, public intellectual and director of journals and cultural institutions has been recognized in France, Europe, and worldwide. An ambitious poet who coined the phrase “geopoetics” in 1960s, Deguy continues to energetically pursue a life-long quest for the “extreme referent”. He is recognized for the range and originality of his work, and for his prolific and inventive contributions. From winning the Prix Mallarmé for his poetic oeuvre to the Prix Diderot-Universalis for his journal Po&Sie; from the John Hopkins colloquium of 1968 which launched “French Theory” in America to and ongoing participation in the European Graduate School; from his direction of the Collège international de Philosophie to his monthly philosophical chronicles on the radio network France-Culture; from the erotic poet to the mourning philosopher; from the lyrical traveler to the outraged citizen, few bodies of work today equal the passionate, lucid and selfless engagement of Michel Deguy’s evolving corpus. Deguy is the translator of Sappho and of Heidegger, the interpreter of Pseudo-Longinus and of René Girard, Emeritus professor at Paris VIII, recent Honorary Doctor of the University of Athens, and is defender of the university and of its highest theoretical and philosophical standards.
