The University of Kentucky recently hosted a French Studies Forum on the Paris Attacks, organized by French and Francophone Studies within the Department of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures, and Cultures.
The participants in the forum address the cultural and political context of, as well as the emerging and continuing fallout surrounding, the recent deadly attacks on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a Paris kosher market (January 7-9, 2015).
In the summer of 2014, several undergraduate and graduate students from the College of Arts & Sciences received a grant from the National Science Foundation. This NSF grant gave them the means to pursue research in various fields as they explored their interests and prepared for their potential futures. In this interview, we speak with Emily VanMeter, a senior Political Science and French Studies major.
The Department of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures, and Cultures excited to welcome Assistant Professor Julie Human to its faculty!
