FSER Seminar « Stem cells and stress response » organized by Emmanuelle Passegué.

Stem cells, by their ability to differentiate into a wide variety of cell types, play a crucial role in the development, growth and maintenance of organisms. Like other cells, they are subject to different types of stress. However, their very nature, the fact that they are at the origin of other cells, makes the impact of the stress response in stem cells all the more critical for the body’s health. This conference will bring together 20 personalities who will contribute significantly to this pioneering field of research.

Music Master Class: “The Voice Academy: Mozart…and after”

«The opera that came after Mozart is still his» will be the theme of the 3rd session of the Academy of Voice. Under the expert and thoughtful eye of Dame Felicity Palmer, we will explore together the various and often contrary paths that connect Mozart to his disciples Rossini, Weber, Offenbach, Tchaikovsky, Messenger, Reynaldo Hahn, Richard Strauss, Stravinsky … Two centuries of quotations and tributes but above all of loyalty.

Residential studies

Clément Dessy will be welcomed for the writing of a book on the theme: Brussels-London: cultural exchanges between Belgium and the British Isles from 1880 to 1930. At the end of the 19th century, Brussels holds a key place in exchanges with London and Great Britain. A very strong Anglomania prevails in the circles of “avant-garde” artists and writers in Belgium, while in the other side of the Channel, Belgians – perceived as half-Germanic and half-Latin – are given a role of innovation in arts and letters, which would be different from Parisian and French trends. The book aims to show how, on the cultural level, these exchanges have enabled Belgium to play a pivotal role between London and Paris. It will also show that Belgian authors and artists were able to reach an international audience through a dual recognition, not only French, but also and especially English.
