About France@Illinois

The Department of French and Italian hosts France@Illinois with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, which designated the University of Illinois as one of 22 Centers of Excellence across the country.

France@Illinois sponsors interdisciplinary activities including conferences and workshops, film series, lectures by distinguished scholars, writers, and artists, and cultural exchanges. Its goal is to stimulate collaborative energies across disciplinary boundaries and serve as a central point of information about initiatives and events connected with France and the francophone world around campus.

Please contact the France@Illinois Director, Prof. François Proulxto send items for inclusion in the calendar or to request co-sponsorship for France-related events. Our current calendar lists future events.
