Activities of the Society

The Society’s primary aim is to promote the full spectrum of French Studies in institutions of higher education, both within the United Kingdom and Ireland, and beyond. Our activities do this in a range of different ways, encouraging and supporting intellectual enquiry in the discipline at all levels.
