Presider's Annotation:Bonjour, un mois exactement avant le MLA.
This is a confirmation that this session will have five panelists instead of four. Gillian Pierce from Boston University will join you, with a paper entitled "Agnès Varda and the “portrait-puzzle”: The Cinematic Portrait in Sans Toit ni Loi and Les Plages d’Agnès
I will do my best to get this official list changed.
Professor Pierce will be also be chairing the session instead of me since I have to cancel my participation for a family emergency -- I am terribly disappointed to not be there, but I have no other choice. I was really looking forward to meeting you all and hearing your papers.
