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. (p.bray@ucl.ac.uk)

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 eighth webinar of the series, Marni Kessler (University of Kansas) discusses her book, Discomfort Food: The Culinary Imagination in Late Nineteenth-Century French Art (Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 2021), with Janet Beizer (Harvard University).
