The conference is bilingual, but it will take place mainly in French.
Participants may give a paper in English but must understand French.

Call for papers / International Conference

"Elusive faces of the feminine. Writing and photography, face to face"

3-5 May 2007

This conference is about the relationship between photography and
writing, and the places where they meet, dialogue, cross and flee
each other. In this relationship between the photographic and the
literary, we are interested in the importance of the female face, an
alterity that neither medium can capture.
