Group Projects on Franco-American Debates

In our class on European-American perceptions and misperceptions (HIS/IST 274), we will conclude the semester with staged debates on topics typically seen as dividing France and the United States.  Each pair of students is investigating an issue from both the American and French perspectives.  In class this week, the pairs presented their initial findings and approaches in order to solicit feedback and gather suggestions.  We are very much looking forward to the formal Franco-American debates in December!

Renee and Tessla are focused on the competing traditions and
practices of French and American feminism.

Hannah and Caroline are investigating immigration 
in France and the United States.

Annie and Andrea are looking at divergent French 
and American cultures and practices of business.

Kianna and Meredith are debating laws 
on gun control in France and the United States.
