To give our first-year students a chance to explore a topic of their choice and/or to express themselves in writing in a personal way, we decided to create a “bulletin” for each level and have students contribute the articles! Please enjoy perusing these first editions, and look for more to come in the future!
Send any feedback you have to Connie Dickey, the first-year French Supervisor at firstname.lastname@example.org

Frieda Ekotto is the Chair of the Department of Afro-American and African Studies at the University of Michigan. She is the author of several important scholarly articles, monographs and novels, which address questions of race, colonialism and slavery in the Francophone world. She has also focused on postcolonial feminisms from an African perspective and is currently working on a manuscript “Vibrancy of Silence: Women Loving Women in Sub-Sahara Africa.” Her latest monograph, What Color is Black: Race and Sex Across the French Atlantic, represents a groundbreaking intervention in the field of critical race studies. Her lecture will focus on the Negritude movement and discourses about blackness in the Francophone Atlantic world.

The Department of Romance Languages at the University of Oregon is proud to announce the launch of our new Spanish Heritage Language program (SHL). This program is designed for students who grew up in a Spanish-speaking household or community in a country where Spanish is not the dominant language, such as the United States. SHL offers a variety of classes to meet students’ needs as heritage learners. Students with Spanish-language heritage will explore topics related to their cultural background, and coursework is designed to help them recover and/or develop their heritage linguistic abilities. We are thrilled to offer several SHL classes starting in Fall 2012 term. For more information about the SHL program please email: email@example.com.
