Presenter

Join us for this table ronde discussing the suburbs of Paris, where the outliers, not to say the outlaws, have created an hybride culture rocking the medieval core of the city and its language. La banlieue, moi, je kiffe grave!

Our special guests include: Mamadou Gaye, founding member of the Parisian organisation Banlieues du Monde; Tim Brown from the IIT College of Architecture; and moderator Ritt Deitz, Executive Director, UW-Madison Professional French Masters Program.
