Originating in 2009, H-France Salon is a multimedia journal of French Studies in its broadest sense, encompassing history, literature, cinema, art history, theory, and culture. Salons have included debates and collective reassessments of critical, methodological, and professional issues in our fields, tributes to influential individuals, recordings of conference presentations, webinars, and innovative blog projects. We welcome proposals that build on these initiatives or take us in new directions. Please contact us with ideas. (gcakmak@umass.edu)

Webinar: Paul Delaroche- Painting and Popular Spectacle (January 24, 2024, 10:00 AM Eastern Time-US and Canada/ 3:00 PM GMT)
Moderator: Gülru Çakmak, University of Massachusetts Amherst

In this webinar, Patricia Smyth (University of Warwick) is joined by an interdisciplinary panel of scholars including Emma Barker (the Open University), Janice Norwood (University of Hertfordshire), and Caroline Radcliffe (University of Birmingham), alongside a live audience, in order to examine some of the themes raised by Smyth’s book Paul Delaroche: Painting and Popular Spectacle (Liverpool University Press, 2022). The participants discuss the intersection of theater history, art history, and visual culture, offering insights into Delaroche’s work against the background of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century spectatorship practices.
