*  *  *

Published on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 by Céline Guilleux


For several years, Matrice, an equipment of excellence (technological platform aimed at better understanding the relationship between individual and collective memory), and the Institut National de l'Audiovisuel (INA) have been organizing a monthly seminar on memory issues. At the end of this year, they are offering an international workshop, on June 14, 2019 at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, which will be devoted to the appropriation of museum spaces by visitors with the theme : “Memory, assimilation, accommodation: new approaches to visiting museums and memorials”. This international workshop is part of the international study and research day organized by the École du Louvre on June 13, in collaboration with the Université du Québec à Montréal and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal. These two events are part of the scientific exchanges between the Equipex Matrice and the École du Louvre.
