Symposium, ‘Nineteenth-Century American Literature and Health Humanities: Scholars in Conversation’, which will take place on Tuesday 28 May, 2-5:30pm in Room 830 of the ODG Building at Université Paris Cité. We are most fortunate to have four leading scholars of the American nineteenth century visiting Paris from the U.S., and we hope many of you will make the most of the occasion by attending in person. That said, we will also be broadcasting the sessions on Zoom.
