Located at the intersection of several dynamic historiographic areas – press history and transnational history, as well as the history of cultural transfers and exchanges – the study of foreign-language periodicals produced and consumed transnationally remains largely unexplored. This symposium will attempt the very first comparison between Paris and London, two of the most important European and global publishing capitals, where foreign-language publications have thrived. The day will be structured in cross-perspective interventions discussing German-, Italian- and Spanish-language organs in both countries, French publications in England as well as English ones in France. It will adopt a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective, bringing together specialists from a range of areas, such as press history, the political history of exile and the cultural history of immigration.
