For many years now Central Europe has been the subject of interest on the part of French publishing houses focusing on humanities. This curiosity, however, is often marginal, and only intensifies in the light of major historical events. French publishers and social scientists debate Central Europe‘s publishing potential in France.

Astrid Thorn-Hillig (Publishing house of Maison des sciences de l’homme),
Gwendal Piégais (Codex Publishing),
Miroslav Novák (author of Le Printemps de Prague, 1968. Une révolution interrompue ?, Codex, 2021)
Ronan Hervouet (author of Le goût des tyrans. Une ethnographie politique du quotidien en Biélorussie, Lormont, Le Bord de l’eau, 2020).

Moderation: Jérôme Heurtaux, director of CEFRES, author of Pologne 1989. Comment le communisme s’est effondré, Codex, 2019.
