“Exploring Diversity in France” was a special discussion series that brought together American and French scholars, students and the public to examine the role and concept of diversity in contemporary France. The talks took place from October 10 to 18, 2011 at various US-based universities.
The program was generously supported by the Embassy of France to the United States and developed in partnership with Humanity in Action, The New School, Yale University, Georgetown University and the University of Missouri. Each of the universities hosted a talk that featured speakers who are both leading experts on France as well as three Senior Fellow representatives from Humanity in Action France who shared the perspective of a younger generation.
