Hélène Fleury, PhD student at the Université Paris-Saclay, participated last March at the Bihar and Jharkhand - Shared History to Shared Vision conference organized by the Asian Development Research Institute (ADRI) in Patna, India. Focused on India’s development—particularly in the states of Jharkhand and Bihar, the conference drew together 200 researchers from around the world. The President of India, members of the government, states governors, and representatives of international organizations were also present.

Fleury’s communication, “Heroization and International Reception of Mithila Paintings Construction Women (Painters) Figure in William Archer’s and Yves Véquaud’s Writings”, explored the relationship between India and Europe in the 1970s when it came to the promotion of women painters in the Mithila’s region.
