French & Italian Graduate Student Organization

FIGSO is the student-led French and Italian Graduate Student Organization. We have many plans for the 2013-2014 academic year including a Working Papers Series where graduate students from our department can present work pertaining to French or Italian linguistics, literature, film, and culture. In the Fall and Spring, the Lecture Series will bring in scholars from around the country to host talks and workshops on topics in French linguistics, French literature, and Italian studies. In the Spring, we present our annual French play performed by French students at UT. We will also screen French films for the Film Series to be held throughout the year. Lastly, we will participate in Explore UT, where our graduate students run the French and Italian booth.
