William & Mary and France 101: A Lecture from the French and Francophone Studies Department

Before the main event kicks off on Thursday evening, join us on Wednesday night for a special lecture from two of William & Mary's esteemed professors of French and Francophone Studies. Each will present on their current research, and afterwards will give examples of research completed by their major students both on campus and abroad.

Our guest lecturers from campus are:

  • Professor Magali Compan, who will explore the recent work of street artists KidKreol and Boogie, whose creative endeavors with visual texts constitute re-articulation of memory and identity in the French Reunion Island.
  • Professor Maryse Fauvel, who will present museums as sites of memory and oblivion through the study of two museums, the Quai Branly Museum and the only museum of immigration in Europe.

This event is free to attend. A light reception will follow the lecture. Space is limited.

Note: Lectures will be given in English.
