Hôtel de Lauzun
17 quai d'Anjou

Conference organized by Gisèle Sapiro (EHESS) and Tristan Leperlier (EHESS / Paris 5), with the support of the Paris IAS

The first day of the conference will take place at the EHESS, Amphithéâtre François Furet.
The second day will take place at the Paris Institute for Advanced Study.


Après deux rencontres entre chercheurs en littérature et en sociologie de l’EHESS et d’Oxford, avec pour thématiques le « champ littéraire transnational » puis le « cosmopolitisme », ce colloque, à cheval entre sociologie et littérature comparée, croise la problématique du transnational avec celle du transmédial, soit le passage des œuvres entre différents supports (écrits, performés, filmés…).
