It’s Graduation Day today and tomorrow for students completing degrees in French at the University of Stirling and seems an appropriate date on which to launch this blog. Warm congratulations to all our students who are graduating this week and best of luck for the future. First and foremost, though, enjoy your graduation!
Month: June 2013
Bonjour! Hello! And welcome to French at Stirling!
This blog aims to create a space for news about life and events on the French programme at Stirling University, as well as to give those of us who teach on the programme a chance to say a bit more about our own research and teaching.
French sits within the Division of Literature and Languages, alongside Spanish and Latin American Studies, Religion, Global Cinema, English Studies, Publishing Studies and Creative Writing. At undergraduate level, our students can either opt for Single Honours French or can combine French with a range of other subjects from History to Management via Education, Politics, Philosophy and much more besides. We also contribute to a variety of postgraduate teaching on our MRes Humanities, MLitt in Film Studies, taught MRes in Translation Studies and MSc in Translation with TESOL, and we have PhD students working on topics as diverse as the sociolinguistics of French and Belgian rap music and Moroccan urban cinema.
The blog is very much a ‘work in progress’ and any questions or suggestions for items we might include can be sent to Cristina Johnston (firstname.lastname@example.org).
