Conference: "Circulating French in the Classroom: Reading Literature in Community"

“Circulating French in the Classroom/Le Français bouge en classe”

The Indiana University-Bloomington and University of Notre-Dame “French Literature beyond Borders” research group invites participants to attend an upcoming conference and series of hands-on workshops to be held at Notre Dame. The immediate goal is to produce an anthology of literary texts in French and English translation for teaching purposes for high-school and college-level classes in French and World Literature. The long-term goal is to follow the publication of this pedagogical volume with a scholarly collection of essays that reveal the gains to be made in this innovative approach to literature for the 21st century.

The research group invites high school teachers, college and university teachers and students of French and postcolonial history and literature to help them create a blueprint for the future. Presentations will be in French and English.

Deadline for registration is September 30, 2013.
