Presenters have backgrounds in French and Comparative Literature, Anthropology, History and Art History and work on inter-disciplinary subjects, art and archival sources, as well as the press. While the first day of our conference will focus on art, religion and contemporary written accounts, the second day will concentrate on the French-language press in the Asia-Oceania region (China, Japan, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, etc.).
