A centre for Franco-British academic and cultural exchange for over 150 years, ULIP today continues to be a hub for intercultural and interdisciplinary debate in the heart of Paris.
The Institute attracts speakers from the international academic community, the media, government bodies, and NGOs for regular lectures and debates throughout the academic year. Recent topics have included the ‘Ideology of America First’, ‘Islamophobia in France’, ‘South Africa 30 Years After Mandela’s Walk to Freedom’, the ‘Revocation of Citizenship’, and ‘Decolonising Multilingualism’.
All ULIP events are free of charge and open to all; they are normally followed by a drinks reception. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, ULIP premises are currently closed and all scheduled events postponed or cancelled. Plans are in progress to develop online seminars with colleagues in the School of Advanced Study (SAS), the Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences (QMUL) and Goldsmiths University of London.
