The Department of French and Italian

Talk about the French Revolution in French...

Fri, April 6, 2012

The Department of French & Italian is pleased to offer an optional one-hour class for credit in French attached to History 353:

Students with intermediate French language skills enrolled in HIS 353, “The French Revolution and Napoleon”, may, if they choose, sign up for a supplemental one-hour class in French, FR 130D. Students who take this additional course will receive an additional hour’s credit in French from the Department of French and Italian. This is a unique opportunity to develop language skills in the context of studying history. The Department of History encourages interested students to take advantage of this unique opportunity.

The revolution of 1789-1815 became one of the defining points of modern history. For centuries historians have debated what it meant, why it took the course it did, how it changed Europe and the world, and its place in the longer histories of radicalism and conservativism, the state, war, and human rights. Writers and artists, too, have been captivated by the human drama of this tumultuous decade and a half. How did ordinary people survive? How were extraordinary careers made – or lost?

FR 130D is tentatively scheduled to meet Mondays, 5-6 p.m.  Times may be adjusted according to students’ schedules.
