CEFRES Review of books – December 2023

The next edition of CEFRES Review of Books will take place on Monday, December 18th, at 4:30 pm at CEFRES, Na Florenci 3, Prague 1

This informal meeting gathers CEFRES team, the library readers, and professionals from libraries and publishing. The aim of our Review of Books is to make better known the publishing landscape in humanities and social sciences. Each book is presented in French and in no more than 10 minutes, so to stress its originality and stakes.
