21-27 April 2014, Paris

The program will include plenary lectures, roundtables, workshops, seminars, panels, along with performances at various venues, theatres, concert halls, museums, libraries, artists’ studios and bookshops.


The conference is backed by a large number of French and international institutions and organizations.
