A Tribute to Christiane Vigouroux (d. 1 October 2020)

The French Byron Society is sad to announce that Christiane Vigouroux passed away on 1st Oct 2020.

She chaired our society between 2000 and 2008, eight years during which she organised two or three meetings a year, invited guest speakers – among whom the late Peter Cochran – and hosted the 2006 International Byron Conference at the Sorbonne University.

All along her terms as chair and several years after, she faithfully attended the Byron Conferences, be it in Europe, in Japan or in North America. She gave our society’s bulletin a new format, which is currently still in use, and opened it to the contributions of many scholars across the world.

We will all remember her dedication to create friendly links with other Byron societies.
