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.

Race, Racism & the Study of France and the Francophone World Today, Part II
Edited by:
Emily Marker, Rutgers University-Camden
Christy Pichichero, George Mason University

Recent scholarly debates, student activism, and current events have sharpened conversations about race, identity, equity, and diversity in academia in France, the United States, and around the world. This second installment of the H-France Salon on Race, Racism and the Study of France and the Francophone World Today is dedicated to opening up frank discussion about how race and racism play out in academic careers and institutional spaces, from college classrooms and campus cafes, to professional association meetings and administrative offices. The issue features pieces by Tyler Stovall, Nimisha Barton, Mita Choudhury, Stephen L. Harp, Crystal M. Fleming, and Pratima Prasad writing in their multiple capacities as scholars, teachers, administrators, and consultants based in the United States, and it begins with a critical introduction to recent controversy on these questions in France.
