The Higher Education, Research and Innovation department of the French Embassy and the Institut français du Royaume-Uni are organizing throughout the year a series of seminars to reflect on our sense of belonging, on the construction of political and emotional borders, in partnership with British and French universities and organizations.

This series of talks on Franco-British culture, history and politics started with the Night of Ideas 2019, where academics and youth organizations discussed the idea of Europe.

Bringing together renowned researchers from both sides of the Channel, this series of seminars will highlight specific fields of the social sciences and humanities (history of emotions, gender studies) and deal with one of the most pressing issues in our societies: how are the relationships between individuals and institutions shaped?

The Borders of Identity cycle of events is supported by the Fonds d’Alembert 2019.
