Back to the PRE-FACES event

The PRE-FACES study day took place on Friday February 17th 2017 at Saint Charles (Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3).

The event included 5 round tables in English on the topic of crisis and crises focused on under different aspects, starting from Shakespeare’s World.

PRE-FACES was the first scientific event of NEW FACES project.

This event brought together professors, researchers, and NGO experts from several European countries to deal about topics such as crisis in the past and in the present, language crisis, or crisis and authority. This day was also the occasion to present NEW FACES programme and its perspectives.
