Society for French Historical Studies Annual Meeting
To mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Society for French Historical Studies, our annual meeting will take place in Paris for the first time in the history of the Society. The dates are 17–20 June 2004. The meeting will be sponsored by the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales and New York University and hosted by the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (BNF) at its Tolbiac site. Invited speakers include Arlette Farge, Jean-Noël Jeanneney, and Jacques Revel, and there will be presentations from the BNF and the Archives Nationales concerning new collections and electronic access. Behind-the-scenes tours of the BNF are being planned, along with a reception at the Hôtel de Ville and a banquet cruise on the Seine.
In these difficult times for Franco-American relations, we hope that the Society can play a part in the ongoing individual and institutional cooperation that has characterized those relations through thick and thin. We are expecting a large turnout and therefore urge you to begin making plans now.
There will be no single conference hotel, but the conference will have its own Web page that will provide information on housing possibilities and display updated meeting information. It will be found on the Web site of the Institute of French Studies, New York University: www.nyu.edu/fas/program/frenchstudies/sfhs.
Please note that all U.S. and Canadian participants must be members of the Society. Nonmembers can join by calling Duke University Press's Journals Division at 888-387-5687 (toll-free in the United States and Canada) or at 919-687-3602.
