Thanks to by Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell for drawing my attention to this one. And yes, by definition, this takes us to the seventeenth century, but the gala reception just seems to require us to take note. -CH

Society for Interdisciplinary Seventeenth-Century French Studies Conference
Los Angeles, 8–10 November 2013

Entertainment, show, and the arts are the lifeblood of Los Angeles — just as they were central to the court of Louis XIV of France.  International scholars studying French literature, the arts, and history during this incredible monarchy form the membership of the Society for Interdisciplinary Seventeenth-Century French Studies (SE-17) that will hold its annual conference at two Los Angeles academic Institutions: UCLA’s William Andrews Clark Library and California State University, Long Beach, November 8–10, 2013.

Period literature, art, and music will be central to the academic program. 17th-century French theater as spectacle along with spectacular fashion will also be at the heart of the 2013 meeting’s events. This year, SE-17 plans to embrace the area’s artistic community and include a gala reception around the theme of “What Would Louis Do (in 2013)?”

Proceeds from the reception and meeting will be donated equally to support: (1) graduate students’ travel scholarships to attend upcoming SE-17 events; and (2) travel scholarships for students of the French for Hispanophones program at CSULB, a unique program specially conceived to accelerate the learning of French for Spanish speakers.
