I have certainly had an interesting few days since my last post. As I have said before, my main interest is contemporary women’s writing in French and I always look out for relevant conferences. I am particularly fascinated by Francophone women’s writing, a subject area which I have been able to discover more about throughout my MA. I’m still waiting for a conference on francophone Algerian writers to come up on the mailing list I subscribe to. I would love one day to present my own paper at such an event!Last month I received an e-mail about an event at Senate House on the subject of motherhood which included a reading by French author Karine Reysset. I had never read any of her books before but I decided that I would pop along as I am keen to expand my knowledge in my chosen field as much as I possibly can.
