Thursday, December 1, the students of FRE 315 Introduction to French Studies, FRE 320 Contemporary French Literature and Film, and FRE 411 Service-Learning in the Francophone Community participated in our biannual recital.
FRE 315 students presented dramatic monologues based on historical and fictional characters they have studied this semester. Featured today are Erin Allen playing Ismène, from Jean Anouilh's Antigone and Brooklyn Matlock playing Saint-Exupéry from his novel Pilote de guerre.
Aubrey Churchman talked to us about his experiences in service-learning with Glory House, in particular, the work he did for Haiti after the hurricane, but he also participated in the Recital with his classmates in FRE 320. These students had the opportunity to make their own films with the help of Lilia Merdzhanova, our French Assistant. In their recital pieces, they talked about the process and challenges of creating a film and showed a short selection of their film.
Congratulations to all our students who participated!
