During my research project, I will build a database of all Macron's presidential discourses since May 7th, 2017 for future text mining and political communication analysis. This will include retrieving, cleaning up and indexing texts from various official sources, drafting the metadata of all files and identifying every discourse addressed to the French public, including videos which will be later transcribed into texts.

My research project looks at a new and untapped archive at the Cité internationale Universitaire, an international residential campus in the Parisian outskirts.
This symposium will bring together a preeminent group of scholars from the humanities and the social sciences, writers, archivists, filmmakers, translators, and “grands témoins” to discuss the legacies of the work of Caribbean thinker Edouard GLISSANT (1928-2011). Developing new directions and methodologies in the study of Glissant’s“œuvre archipel”lies at the h
This project confronts a collection of untapped sources about Renaissance feasting. Focusing on a banquet that took place in Tours, France in 1457, we want to deepen our understanding of Renaissance cooking techniques while investigating how food and feasting intersected with diplomacy, politics, music, dance, art, theater, religion, science, and medicine.

I intend to fill the lack of systematic studies concerning the similar trajectories, both literary and biographic, of the Italian author Curzio Malaparte and the French author Louis-Ferdinand Céline.
When discussing cultural or ethnic communities within a larger nation, two metaphors often emerge: the “salad bowl” and the “melting pot”.
In the ancient Greek and Roman world, entire cities participated in the performance of hymns during religious festivals. These “cultural” and civic events were commissioned by the city‐state, and the hymns, including song, music and dance, were performed by a chorus of citizens. The genre of hymns (songs written for the gods) was at the crossroads of literature, religion, history and politics. Our seminar, “Greek and Roman hymnic traditions and the performance of community,” will discuss the interaction of these different fields through the op
Power Struggle by Olga Kisseleva is a live battle between four anti-viruses commented by actor using the tone of an altercation or a political confrontation. Each anti-virus tries to destroy the other three, eradicating everything in the computer until there is only one left. The performance offers a beautiful metaphor for the struggle for power currently taking place between politicians, as unproductive as it is dangerous. The fight becomes visible to the spectators thanks to lines of code racing on the screen.
