The ADEFFI Spring Forum provides an opportunity for academics working in French studies to meet in an informal setting to exchange ideas regarding both our research and our teaching. The day is divided between short 10-12 minute presentations of current research projects, and round-table sessions sharing practical and pedagogical ideas and information.
