Delphine Chedaleux is a doctor in cinema and senior researcher in the history and aesthetics of the cinema section at the University of Lausanne. She will talk to us about how romantic comedies can be a privileged observatory of collective imaginaries shaped by relations between men and women. She will examine the motives of this film genre and its evolution over time, and will sketch a history of genre representation.
