The Paris Society, a student-led group, organise regular cultural events across the city for Paris students.
This week they held a beginners tango workshop, animated by Dr Angela Gallego-Sala (Paris Summer School lecturer) and Professor Peter Brown (Paris Academic Director).

This week we are hosting a conference which considers who, when, why and how the British make their home in Paris and how the French become Londoners, historically and today.
This conference is open to the public and will be held in the Salle de Conférence. This space is located at the end of the second interior courtyard. Sign up here.
For centuries, and in significant numbers in contemporary Paris and London, the British and the French have crossed the Channel for short, long and indefinite stays in their neighbouring capital cities. These Parisian British and London French citizens occupy a very particular place in the wider native and migrant compositions of the Paris and London metropolises.
This afternoon seminar and early evening public event consider the diverse experiences of the British and the French who made, and continue to make, that crossing to the other’s city. It examines aspects of when, why and how they make their lives there, and what happens when they do. These British Parisian and London French lives incarnate the symbiosis between London and Paris which endures and which transcends the political weather. Speakers and participants are drawn from a range of specialists on Franco-British cultural relations, and from those currently engaged in making a life and a home in the neighbour’s city.
