Conferences

The Society hosts the largest annual UK gathering of scholars working across the full disciplinary range of French studies.

The 2019 annual conference at Royal Holloway University of London featured up to 9 parallel sessions, in addition to four plenary speakers, and a number of special events targeted at our vibrant postgraduate community.

We also organise a well-attended annual postgraduate conference.
