A Revolutionary Debate

A country divided, raging political debates, fiercely divided viewpoints. No, this isn’t America in 2017, it’s France, 1789.
December 6, 2017

Who would you be in the French revolution? A feminist, a member of the bourgeoisie, or perhaps Lafayette himself? Through a three-and-a-half week long role-playing game, FREN 1501/1502: Gateways to French and Francophone Studies offers first- and second-year students the chance to find out where they would fit in the grand debate. The class also includes guest lectures and group discussions to further explore French language, culture, and history.
