Michael Dreyfuss on Occitan

This Friday  (2/5) at 4pm in 709 Hamilton, we will have a presentation from Columbia alumnus, CLS founding member, and Fulbright scholar Michael Dreyfuss. He did research this past year in France on the Occitan language.

“The Occitan language and its revival through bilingual primary school education”
Michael Dreyfuss
Friday Feb. 5 at 4pm in 709 Hamilton

Michael will talk about the Occitan language and the revival effort for Occitan in the bilingual primary school system, the calandretas. Occitan is a Romance language, closely related to Catalan, that is primarily spoken in regions of Southern France and parts of northern Spain and Italy.


Stay tuned for more event announcements, including a talk on Bengali (sponsored by Club Bangla), a collaboration with the Philosophy Forum, and with the series “Workshop on Meaning: Language and Sociocultural Processes”
