UPCOMING EVENTS: Lectures

CLICK HERE FOR THE FRENCH STUDIES WEBSITE...

The French Studies Program organizes lectures, scholarly visits, and conferences involving France and the French traditions across the disciplines of the Humanities and the Social Sciences. In addition to the French Department, Berkeley has significant concentrations of faculty engaged in work on France in the departments of History, History of Art, Music, Comparative Literature, Anthropology, and Political Science. These scholars continue a long and distinguished Berkeley tradition of interdisciplinary study of things French. They provide an important pedagogical and scholarly resource at both the graduate and the undergraduate levels, for students working on France and Francophonie Beyond the UC Berkeley campus, the French Studies Program helps coordinate programs and activities for faculty and graduate students and for members of the Bay Area community committed to the investigation of French society, culture, literature, science, and the arts.

The French Studies Program aims to coordinate scholarly work on France conceived in both a European and Francophone perspective. The French Studies Program has a long and distinguished history: active periodically in the 1980s and 1990s, it was the sponsor of major international conferences that led to highly successful publications on such topics as "Libraries of the Future."

In its current incarnation, it is made up of a steering committee of Berkeley faculty throughout the Humanities and Social Sciences and graduate students in these departments; and a broader community of scholars and other interested members of the Bay Area community. The French Studies Program supports speakers, conferences, and study groups, and aims to foster the informal sharing of work among members of the Bay Area community.
