The webinar series, convened by Lewis Seifert, reflected the vitality of the scholarship on the 17th- and 18th-century French colonial presence in North America.
The conference, convened by Karen Newman, explored the work of Corneille in the context of European theatre and the circulation of early modern drama through both translation and performance, from the 17th to the 20th century.
Under the direction of Cole Swensen, the project explored the field of paysagisme and its specific integration of art and land use, landscape design, and urban planning, with a particular emphasis on its modes of ecological responsibility. Partners included Literary Arts, Environmental Studies, French Studies, Visual arts, and the Brown Arts Initiative as well as the Potager du Roi and Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
