Open Call ! The Night of Ideas - La Nuit des Idées

Sunday 12 January 2020


Are you a researcher interested in sharing your specialist knowledge within an international network? Apply to be part of our annual Night of Ideas at the gorgeous Institut français d’Écosse, on Thursday 30 January 2020.

Extended deadline for applications: 12 January 2020

The Institut français d’Ecosse is taking part in the Night of Ideas, a project launched by the Institut français in 2016 and staged simultaneously in Paris, London, Edinburgh and worldwide on 30th January 2020.

We are currently receiving applications by researchers (postgraduate, postdoctoral, lecturers, and professors) around the theme "ALIVE" as the common thread to explore the latest ideas behind issues central to our times.

What does being ALIVE mean today?

The event is free and open to all and offers a free platform for researchers and specialists to present their research and ideas to nurture debate within an international framework. Different formats are welcome: research papers, panels, interactive workshops… We are most importantly looking for contributions able to reach out to a wide audience. Historical perspective on these topics is very much welcome.

If you are interested, please send a short abstract (200 words max) and bio to Solange Daufès and Philippe Sibeaud by 15th January 2020. We anticipate that most presentations will take place in the evening of 30th January, between 6pm and 9pm.
