ABOUT THE CENTRE

The Center for French and Francophone Studies fosters interdisciplinary French studies across Duke’s campus by drawing on the excellence of the Duke faculty and students. Designated an official Centre Pluridisciplinaire by the Cultural Services division of the French Embassy, the center is an umbrella, a catalyst, and an organizing force designed to consolidate and intensify intellectual energies across the campus and throughout the region. The Center sponsors and co-sponsors a variety of cross-disciplinary activities, including colloquia and workshops; visits by distinguished writers, scholars, joumalists, theater troupes, and researchers; screenings of the best new French films; and virtual and actual intellectual collaborations and exchanges.

Le Centre d’Études Françaises et Francophones encourage les études françaises à caractère interdisciplinaire sur le campus de Duke, en s’appuyant sur l’excellence de son corps professoral et étudiant. Officiellement reconnu comme centre pluridisciplinaire par le Service Culturel de l’Ambassade de France, il agit en ce sens comme une plate-forme, un catalyseur et une force organisatrice visant à consolider et à intensifier les énergies intellectuelles du campus et de toute la région. Le Centre parraine ou co-parraine en ce sens de multiples activités interdisciplinaires : colloques, séminaires, visites d’écrivains reconnus, d’universitaires, de journalistes, de troupes de théâtre et de chercheurs, cycles de projections des meilleurs films français du moment, échanges et collaborations intellectuelles, effectives ou virtuelles.

An archive of past events is available here.

The current director of the center is Prof. Helen Solterer.

  1. Je ne suis pas française, mais j’aime la culture et l’histoire de la France, aussitot que son art et allure. Je voudrais savoir si le centre a quelques cours online ou dans le campus, ou ou est-ce que je peux avoir le renseignement.
    Merci beaucoup.
    Cordialement,

  2. Hello, I am interested in French and Francophone studies. I would like to know if there is a physical location of the center on campus? Merci!

  3. I am very interested in seeing these films but an intense search hasn’t shown me where the screenings take place. Can you help?

  4. On the right-hand sidebar, there is a link under “Événements” wherein the Tourées filme schedule is located. However, the films will be shown at the Bryan Center, Griffith Theater at 7:00pm.

    Please do not hesitate to contact us with any other questions.
