Center for French Colonial Studies

2020 Conference

We regret to announce that the 2020 conference of the Center for French Colonial Studies will have to be cancelled. Although it may seem early to be making such a decision for a conference in October, various factors have made this decision seem appropriate and wise. Among these factors are the uncertainty about when people will be able to resume “normal” activities, the various deadlines which the CFCS faced regarding cancellations (hotel rooms, conference locations), not to mention travel for speakers and participants. This is the first year in our history that a conference has been cancelled. It is a decision that was not taken lightly; several other organizations like ours have also cancelled plans for conferences in the fall. We sincerely hope that we will be able to have next year’s conference. Those of you who might have already made hotel reservations should proceed with cancelling those. Thank you for your understanding.
