I am a pre doctoral student in history / art history. I am working on french colonial architecture in Dakar from, aproximatively, 1900 to 1922 (Marseille colonial exposit) I have many ways to explorate but firstable, I would like to work on relations between the "recall" of roman empire and colonial theories / words / language. It would help me to understand why french colonial administrators in french west Africa choosed neo classical forms in Dakar while this kind of architecture was considered by many as "old" in France. I am looking for references on this question. ___________________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? -- Une adresse @yahoo.fr gratuite et en franšais ! Yahoo!
