Marie Sorbier, producer of a bulletin on the national French radio station France Culture, joins the FEDE Panel of Experts
What did you study?
I graduated with a master’s from the EAC; I was ranked first in my year. I wrote my dissertation on the sacred roots of journeys: ‘Is a Journey a Secular Pilgrimage?’ I then wrote a doctoral thesis on the anthropology of art at the EHESS. My research focused on the power of images.
What have been the highlights of your career?
I started out as a parliamentary assistant at the French Senate, where I worked for the Cultural Affairs Committee. I went on to work as a consultant in cultural institutions, first focusing on communications, then later on events and patronage. In 2015 I created a free paper- and web-based newspaper (I/O) focusing on festivals and live performances across the world. Since 2018 I’ve worked as a theatre, dance and literature critic at the radio station France Culture.
What is your current job?
Since September 2020 I’ve been producing the daily France Culture radio bulletin ‘Affaire en cours’ [Case ongoing]. On each show, we ask a social sciences expert to explain a topical cultural phenomenon. The aim is to provide, in the space of 10 minutes, both food for thought and new ways of seeing the world.
