We are pleased to announce that FIGSO (French and Italian Graduate Student Organization) was recently awarded a Tournées Festival grant through the French American Cultural Exchange program and in partnership with the French Embassy. This distinguished grant, offered to a select number of universities each year, provides significant funding for screening newly released French films for the public. Our department will be using this grant to host a French and Italian film festival in February 2013 that will be free and open to the public. This is an exciting opportunity for our department to increase awareness and passion for French and Italian culture. More details to come!

FR 130D: A conversational French class designed for HIS 353, "The French Revolution & Napoleon, 1789-1815"
Fri, Apr 6, 2012
The Department of French & Italian is pleased to offer FR130D, an optional one-hour class for credit in French attached to History 353. The revolution of 1789-1815 became one of the defining points of modern history: For centuries historians have debated what it meant, why it took the course it did, how it changed Europe and the world, and its place in the longer histories of radicalism and conservativism, the state, war, and human rights. Writers and artists, too, have been captivated by the human drama of this tumultuous decade and a half. How did ordinary people survive? How were extraordinary careers made – or lost?
Applications due Feb. 6th! Read more.
