The Department of French Studies at Brown University announces its 14th annual Graduate Conference
March 17-18, 2006
We invite graduate students to present 15-minute papers relevant to the dual theme of "literary consumption" - in texts dealing with consumption as well as the consumption of texts themselves. We welcome submissions that treat French and Francophone works, as well as broader cultural or theoretical issues, from the Middle Ages to the present.
