As part of the Night of Ideas 2024, on 8 February 2024, sociologist Delphine Mercier and illustrator Mélanie Forné discussed their collaboration as part of the Big Warehouse ANR Project.

How can we combine research and illustration? How can images be used to address sociological issues? How can we convey meaning to images? This unusual collaboration was at the heart of our presentation, transcripted below, along with the images shown during the evening.

This dialogue in English was the starting point of a fascinating discussion with the public.
