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.

“Natalie Zemon Davis: A Celebration of Her 90th Birthday”
Edited by:
Angela N. H. Creager, Princeton University
Francesca Trivellato, Institute for Advanced StudyOn April 26, 2019, Princeton University’s Shelby Cullom Davis Center for Historical Studies and the School of Historical Studies at the Institute for Advanced Study joined forces to celebrate the 90th birthday of Natalie Zemon Davis. Five former colleagues and friends paid tribute to Davis’s brilliant scholarship and intellectual leadership, then Davis herself regaled us with an account of her collaboration with the Lebanese-French-Québécois playwright and director Wajdi Mouawad, which brought an adaptation of her book Trickster Travels: A Sixteenth-Century Muslim Between Worlds to the stage. It was a dazzling event in a packed auditorium. We are delighted that the speakers, themselves illustrious historians, agreed to have their texts published on H-France Salon.
