About the Conference Theme

Parisian passages, strategic passages, anatomical passage, Northwest passage, passage in Baltimore. But, at first glance, this also implies the great passage of the 19th century.

By eschewing a dated snobbism that isolated our field from other 19th centuries, the NCFS colloquium benefits from the greater space of a Francophone passage: Louisianans, Africans, Quebecers, Asians, Acadians, and West Indians poached assertively at the heart of the Romantic period. Specialists from previous centuries are immersed in our waters the 21st century, despite its remoteness, is steeped in them.
