Finnish magazine Ekonomi made an interview feature about how it is to work and live in France.
In it, I discuss the notable differences between France and Finland, touching on the role of social relations, language, hierarchy and leadership in organisations, and also the quality and attitude to life.

Lifestyle Research Centreat Emlyon Business School organizes a Research Day dedicated to Taste on April 25, 2018 (9 AM – 6PM), in Lyon. This research day is envisioned as an inclusive event gathering International and French researchers from different fields (consumer research and sociology). Following Antoine Hennion’s call for taking amateurs seriously, the research day will also give room to professionals of taste. In line with this philosophy, there will be four thematic teams: food, wine, music, literature. Each team will be composed of three persons: two researchers and one professional giving an insider perspective. We believe that gathering scholars from closely related fields and professionals sharing an interest in taste can lead to fruitful discussions.
We are thrilled to announce that Pr. Zeynep Arsel (Professor of Marketing at Concordia University), Pr. Antoine Hennion (Professor of Sociology at Ecole des Mines de Paris), and Pr. Alan Warde (Professor of Sociology at University of Manchester) will be part of the panelists.
Jean Dupin (Baker and Professor of Bread at Institut Paul Bocuse) will talk about the evolution of bread in France. Morgane Lafforest (Cellist) and Valentin Luiggi (Chef) will perform part of their new show blending sounds and flavours.
The complete version of the program will be available soon.
Please note that a Special Issue on Taste based on the Research Day will be published in Consumption, Markets & Culture. Researchers who do not participate in the conference are allowed to submit a paper to the Special Issue.
To make sure the event is as inclusive as possible, we did our best to organize a free event.
The size of the room is limited, so please register if you plan to attend the event.

It consists of both theoretical and practical ingredients and insights on research videography production, including short lectures, discussions, readings, video examples, and a hands-on videography research project that is completed during the workshop. In short, videography presents an innovative and transdisciplinary research methodology that can be used to study, for example, identities, experiences, communities, practices, brands, or organisation on the moving image.
