China in Text and Image: Documentary Writing and Art Objects in the Early Modern Era
Friday, 5 July 2019

We invite applications for 20-minute papers presenting original research on either the reception of China in France in written reports or the adaptation of China in France in objects and architecture during the 17th to the 19th centuries. We encourage colleagues in French and comparative literature, anthropology, history and art history to apply, and welcome inter-disciplinary subjects. Our ambition is to publish the papers following the conference to add to the existing scholarship on our topics a group of solidly researched essays on France-China relations and newly explored cross-cultural studies.

The French-Speaking Press of the 19th Century in the Asia-Oceania Region
Saturday, 6 July 2019

As part of the Media 19 project on the literary history of the 19th-century French-language press and the Transfopress network on the foreign-language press, the second day of our conference will focus on the French-language press in the Asia-Oceania region (China, Japan, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, etc.). Presentations will include the development of local newspapers and the history of Francophone migration, relations with France, etc. The period under consideration will focus on the 19th century, with the possibility of excursions into the first half of the 20th century. Papers will be considered for contribution to the establishment of a world history of the French-speaking press in the 19th century, under the direction of Diana Cooper Richet and Guillaume Pinson.
