Meeting on August 7, at 3PM

"From astonishments to discoveries, between Brittany and Caribbean, Victor Segalen and Edouard Glissant, poetic and political, a volcanic walk on the traces of the unexpected of the world and of the unpredictable of the event. Where we will meet on the road a reflection on journalism and democracy."
