New French Graduates Reading Seminar

Friday, August 29, 2014 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
French House

Reading Orientation Seminar: A chance for all French Department faculty and new French graduate students to meet each other and to discuss a selected text and questions of how we read.  For 2014, please read both the “Discours préliminaire” and Diderot’s article on “L’autorité politique” from the Encyclopédie (any French edition will do) and come prepared to talk about what kinds of questions these two works make you ask. (Lunch provided)
