For this special zoom session, Mélissa Defond, Head of the Research Department at the Université Polytechnique, Hauts-de-France, discussed the impact of COVID-19 on academic libraries in France. More specifically, she discussed the situation at her library and what steps they are taking now that confinement is ending in France. This session was an opportunity to share thoughts, concerns, and ideas as we start thinking about steps to reopen libraries and what the future of academic libraries worldwide will look like.

Francophonie and Françafrique
For this presentation, Dr. Thomas Hale will discuss the concepts of Francophonie and Françafrique. More particularly, he will show that while Francophonie and Françafrique have offered France different tools for influencing francophone countries in Africa, French support for the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, an exemplar of soft power, is waning. The hard power of La Françafrique, France’s shadowy operations in francophone Africa, has attracted criticism by anti-colonial activists and the last three presidents of France. The critics cite evidence for overlap of the two phenomena, and the emergence of a new form of French smart power in francophone Africa.
This talk is co-sponsored by The France Florida Research Institute with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States and the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures.
This event is free and open to public
