If so, you should seriously consider applying to French Hall! We’re currently looking to fill the the vacancy/emotional void that we’ll have next semester when one of us goes abroad. To get an application, send an e-mail to isypher(at)wesleyan(dot)edu expressing interest. Applications are due no later than Tuesday, November 30th at 5PM.

French Hall Hosts WesParle Again

French Hall (basement of Nic 7) will be hosting WesParle again this semester, otherwise known as French Conversation Hour. Stop by any Friday of the semester at 5PM for snacks and to brush up on your French. All levels welcome!

Contact gweinrott@wesleyan.edu if you have any questions.

Charles Lemert speaks at French House

French Hall is throwing a program tomorrow featuring a talk with Prof Charles Lemert, who will be speaking on “Durkheim’s Ghosts: Why the French think the way they do.” He’ll discuss “French sociology, sociologists, social theory, and whatever else might strike his fancy.” Given that this is Charles Lemert, it seems, in fact, fairly likely that something else will strike his fancy and he will ramble on interestingly for a while about something seemingly entirely unrelated (but he’ll tie it back together in the end.)

There will also be food! There will be a home-cooked French bistro-style meal to accompany the conversation.

If you have any questions, contact Caroline McCarthy ’10 at cmmccarthy@wes.

What: Conversation with Charles Lemert

When: Thursday, March 27th 6pm
Where: French Hall, Nic 7, bottom floor
(P.S. Don’t forget that La Maison Française also continues to host French conversation hours every Friday from 5:30 to 6:30. All levels are welcome to join!)
