The Second Café Français Networking Event - December 8th
December, 8th, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Middlesex Lounge
315 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02139-4030.
Johann Sadock, Secretary of the Eastern Massachusetts chapter of American Association of Teachers of French, will give a lecture entitled “Etre jeune aujourd’hui en France”. After failed educational reforms, social unrest in 2005, protests in 2006 and again today against retirement reform, new forms of social media and new forms of communication, young French people are being represented and are representing themselves in new and unforeseen ways. In what ways are these experiences, these cultural practices and (auto)representations specifically “French”?
This lecture will be followed by time for networking and meeting your fellow teachers and professors.
