Reading group 

"Cafés Classiques"

The "Cafés Classiques" consist of a reading group on books that have become classics in the fields of migration and racism. The aim is to offer a space, in a spirit of conviviality, to revisit key authors in the light of the theoretical advances and empirical realities of today. The "Cafés Classiques" follow a cycle of four sessions during the fall semester and are open to everyone.
