About us

Team : Farrokh Vahabzadeh

After finishing my studies in the control systems and working for a while in the engineering fields, I have realised that it's not for me. I have started my Masters degree in the Sorbonne university in France in Math, Logic and Informatics applied in Human Science. After that, I've continued my studies in Ethnomusicology, the study of the musical traditions, and I've obtained my PhD degree from the EHESS (Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales de Paris).I am specialist in Central Asian and Iranian regional music (music of Khorassan). I'm continuing my researches on "musical gestures" in the University of Montreal Faculty of Music where I am a postdoctoral fellow.
Parallely with my studies , I've continued (and still continuing) my artistic life. I'm a painter and a photographer. I had some exhibitions in Europe and Canada. Some of my photographic works can be seen on my website. 

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
