Dr. Fabrice Langrognet (Fung Global Fellow, PIIRS, Princeton) is the co-leader of a public history project in France, which aims at creating a history museum for –and in– the Banlieue (suburban area) of Paris. In this talk, Fabrice will discuss the place of the Banlieue in French historiography and heritage, before presenting the project, its significance and its first choices in terms of museum design.
