Dear Colleagues,

I would like to inform you that the University of North Texas will again offer its French Summer Institute for teachers this year:

Session 1

FREN 5410.001 (3 credits) : Medieval Literature

* Meets in classroom June 6-17, 2016

  MTWRF 9:00 am-11:50 a.m., LANG 109

* Independent Internet work required after July 1

In this course, we will study the French lyric tradition from the 12th-c. troubadours and trouvères to the late 15th-c. rhétoriqueurs. Interesting in its own right, Medieval French poetry is also important because of its impact on European poetry of its time. Indeed the so-called courtly love that is found in the literature of all the countries of medieval Europe is the creation of the French troubadours and trouvères.

Instructor: Dr. Christophe Chaguinian

Session 2:

FREN 5200.001 (3 credits): Language and Culture in the Maghreb

* Meets in classroom June 20-July 1, 2016

  MTWRF 09:00-11:50 a.m., LANG 219

* Independent Internet work required after July 1

This course focuses on linguistic and cultural practices and products in the area of North Africa known as the Maghreb, where French language and culture have played a major role in shaping the countries and peoples of this region. Although readings, discussions, and assignments will cover all the countries of the Maghreb, some emphasis will be placed on Morocco.

Instructor: Dr. Lawrence Williams
