Martine Pagan on the history of French language

On September 7, Martine Pagan shared her expertise on the French language before a packed audience of local francophones. Her wide-ranging discussion of the development of the French language was wide-ranging and riveting. Some of her slides can be found here: 2018 Pagan PowerPoint

Pagan alternates teaching between the Sorbonne and the University of Bologna. She was president of the Alliance Française in Bologna for two years, so she was delighted to share her love of the French language with our members. It is our sincere hope that she will return to visit again soon.
