Celebrity / Obscurity : 44th Annual Nineteenth-Century French Studies Colloquium

October 25-27, 2018, Los Angeles
Scripps College & University of California, Riverside
Manhattan Beach in Los Angeles, California

Submissions for individual papers may be in French or English and should be in the form of an abstract (250 words) uploaded here ( on or before March 15, 2018. For session proposals a separate abstract for each paper should be included.

Organizers: France Lemoine (Scripps College) and Heidi Brevik-Zender (UC Riverside)
