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.

Following the postponement of the Nineteenth-Century French Studies Association’s annual colloquium, Rachel Mesch (Yeshiva University), Masha Belenky (George Washington University), and Susan McCready (University of South Alabama) arranged a series of conversations about new and forthcoming books relating to nineteenth-century France.

In the second webinar of the series, Robin Mitchell (California State University, Channel Islands) discusses her book Vénus Noire: Black Women and Colonial Fantasies in Nineteenth-Century France (Athens, GA: University of Georgia Press, 2020) with Pratima Prasad (University of Massachusetts, Boston).
