Headed for France

I leave for France tomorrow. While there, I will be doing 3 gigs.

Friday, May 7, Collège de France, Salle Halbwachs, 11h00: "De la démocratie en américain: conditions et conflits chez Tocqueville"
Monday, May 10, Nice, Centre Universitaire Méditerranéen, 14h00: "Individualisme, populisme, technocratie: trois façons de vivre la démocratie" (part of a colloquium on individualism organized by La Revue Tocqueville)
Wednesday, May 12, Paris, Institut Français de Relations Internationales, 8h30: "Les dysfonctionnements de la démocratie américaine"

It would be a pleasure to meet any readers who are able to attend these events. I will eventually post the first two papers on line. For the IFRI event there is no formal paper. I am also scheduled to do two interviews with France24, one in French, the other in English.

Hi Art--Just wanted to let you know that I'll be looking forward to the Collège de France talk, I've been reading the blog for a long time now and thoroughly enjoy it. Thanks!

Well, one thing I can say about the lectures: they won't resemble the blog! Thanks for reading.

I just discovered the blog about 6 months ago, and have enjoyed it very much. If any of your lectures are available on podcasts, it would be great to let people know. I'm learning French and use them a lot as practice.

I'm a study abroad student from William and Mary and I had a chance to attend today's conference at IFRI through my internship. Thanks for your perspective - I really enjoyed it. It was nice to see the United States represented well and also interesting to hear that the French are much more optimistic than we are!
