Welcome to WICE's Cultural Studies department. We are pleased to offer a variety of events covering history, culture and the arts – past and present, French and beyond. All are presented by experts in the field in an intimate setting inviting discussion and further exploration. Our program also includes outings to films, exhibitions and performing arts events. Brief descriptions of some of our special offerings are listed below. A complete list is to the right, with links to detailed descriptions of each event. Don't forget to check back regularly as new events are added throughout the term.
Experience French Cinema Culture
In April come cruise French film from the 20's to the 50's, with stopovers in German, British and Italian film if time allows. This course will explore the different genres and show how they were all deeply impacted by war.
This March the topic will be music, namely the work of prolific and influential French composer Hector Berlioz. A special focus will be Les Troyens, in anticipation of an overnight trip to Strasbourg in April to attend the final rehearsal of the opera in combination with a tour of the city (see AA141 for details).
