Palais de Rumine (Lausanne, Switzerland)

 This international conference will take place on January 28-29, 2021 in the framework of the scientific program of the exhibition The Exotic? Switzerland Looking Outward in the Age of Enlightenment, which will run from 24 September 2020 to 28 February 2021 at the Palais de Rumine.
