Le colloque

L'université de New York (Buffalo)  organise en collaboration avec la revue Formules un colloque international sur le thème "Urbanités Littéraires" ["Cityscapes/Literary Escapes"]. Le colloque a pour objet d'étudier le rapport de l'écriture à son environnement urbain  et d'expliciter les rapports interactifs entre la littérature, l'architecture et l'urbanisme.

The Colloquium


In the fall 2009, SUNY - BUFFALO in collaboration with the European journal Formules  is sponsoring  on the UB campus a bi-lingual international Colloquium entitled "Urbanités Littéraires / Cityscapes - Literary Escapes." The goal of the conference is to study the relationship between writing and the urban environment, and specify interactive engagements between literature, architecture, and urbanism.  We have planned eight academic panels.
