LIVES Human Library

What if you could talk with a book?

    The LIVES Research Centre invites you to meet its researchers and listen to their stories, based on their scientific studies. Lively stories about vulnerability and life courses.

    The 16 stories are the subject of a series of podcasts in French and English (see right-hand column), published at a rate of 2 per week since mid-December 2022.
