What the fellow says:

"During my stay in France, I participated in many LADYSS seminars and in ethnology seminars at the University of Nanterre. I also did extensive bibliographical research in the libraries of the University of Nanterre, UNESCO, the international campus (Cité Universitaire) and the National Library of France (BNF). I made good use of LADYSS references, in particular SHS Biblio. I am pleased to have had the opportunity to do so under the UNESCO/ Japan fellowship."
