An ADEFFI-ASMCF Seminar Series:
Sources and Methodologies in French Studies
How do we choose our sources and what do we ask from them? What theories do we choose, and how do we draw on them? Talks on challenges, limitations and approaches to a diverse range of sources.
Broadly dealing with French Studies, but open to all!
