April in Paris: La Banlieue, Le Lieu Du Ban

Listen in to 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.

This program is presented in French.

Recorded Saturday, April 16, 2011 at Alliance Française de Chicago.
