French and Francophone Film Working Group

French and Francophone Film Working Group

The French and Francophone Film Working Group provides a forum for students and faculty of all departments to view and discuss films and texts related to all periods and genres of French and Francophone cinema. Its overall intellectual aim is to understand the current idea of the canon of French-language cinema, and to explore alternatives to it, drawing on mainstream as well as experimental films.

Human Rights, History, and Literature

The Human Rights, History, and Literature working group explores the interconnections between literature, human rights, and history.

This working group seeks to explore the interconnections between literature, human rights and history. Our readings will include excerpts or full texts from legal studies, history, literary studies, along with primary texts which may include novels, short stories, and films. Ideally this working group will be one in which everyone can contribute their ideas, suggesting readings which are of interest to them, so that we can foster an open interdisciplinary environment where a wide array of interests are met.

Identity, Land & Space Meeting

At this meeting, we will be watching the film Pikyav ("to fix it"). This film highlights the intersections of identity and land, which is the theme for this week's meeting. The film centers on the Karuk Tribe from the Klamath River region in northwestern California.
