Call for papers :

46th Nineteenth-Century French Studies Colloquium : POWER
October 29-31, 2020, in Washington, DC

Hosted by Georgetown University and the George Washington University

The 2020 NCFS Colloquium explores the theme of power in its myriad incarnations. Our modern conceptions of power are in many ways rooted in the tumultuous events of the nineteenth century, the site of numerous articulations of this idea, whether political or cultural, commercial or industrial, colonial or metropolitan. Writers, artists, musicians, and philosophers grappled with these events in works that resonate to this day.

Washington DC bears the imprint of French influence. The capital of the country that gained its independence with the help of the Marquis de Lafayette and a city that owes much of its architecture and urban landscape to Pierre L’Enfant, DC naturally lends itself to reflections on power in nineteenth-century France.

Submissions for individual papers may be in French or English and should be sent in the form of an abstract (250 words) to ncfs2020 chez before March 15, 2020. For session proposals a separate abstract for each paper should be included.

Organizers : Masha Belenky (The George Washington University) ; Susanna Lee (Georgetown University), Anne O’Neil-Henry (Georgetown University).
