From February until May 2015, I will be a visiting scholar at the Université Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas (France). My host institution is CARISM (Centre for Interdisciplinary Research and Analysis of the Media), where I received a warm welcome from prof. Katharina Niemeyer and prof. Frédéric Lambert.
The main objective of this research stay is the collection of data (mainly from the CNC and the Cinémathèque française) related to the development of Belgian-French film co-production practices and policy. I am grateful to the Research Foundation Flanders – FWO for granting me a Travel Grant for this research stay.
During my stay in Paris, I am accommodated at the Fondation Biermans-Lapôtre (aka la maison des belges), a home to academics and artists since the 1920s, situated in the inspiring environment of the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris in the 14th arrondissement.
