Celebrating Diversity in the Francophone World

The French program in the Department of French and Italian is hosting a series of events to celebrate diversity in the Francophone World during the Spring semester of 2023. The events, which involve guest lectures by speakers from different parts of “Francophonie,” master classes, and panel discussions, will be connected to undergraduate courses in the department but will also offer many venues open to the wider undergraduate population and to the public. Officials from the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF) and from the Délégation Générale du Québec à New York, as well as community partners such as the French Heritage Language Program (FHLP), will take part in the celebrations. The goal of these events is to create a forum for intercultural, interdisciplinary, and artistic exchanges and foster future collaborations.


These events were made possible thanks to the generous support of: The 250th Anniversary Fund for Innovation in Undergraduate Education, The Délégation Générale du Québec à New York, The Department of French and Italian, Canadian Studies, The Humanities Council, The Lewis Center for the Arts, The Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, The Program for Community-Engaged Scholarship (ProCES) , The Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies.
