This year for the Study Day part of the proceedings we decided to have a look at the important area of Francophone Studies. We had an excellent speaker in Professor Bill Marshall, Director of the Institute of Modern Languages Research (IMLR), who talked to us on a topic related to Francophone film (and updated us on the relaunch of the IMLR). We then adjourned for lunch, after which we visited the SOAS Library. Our guide was Dominique Akhoun-Schwarb who is the librarian in charge of the Middle East and Asia but who showed us the Library’s holdings relating to Francophone Africa.
