Rwandan social psychologist Assumpta Mugiraneza, French lecturers and researchers Ariane Zaytzeff, Armelle Gaulier and Maëline Le Lay will tell us about Gaël Faye’s musical and literary trajectory/path and will seek to ponder about the reasons of such a success by analyzing Petit pays within the corpus of Rwandan genocide literature.
