French Workshop: Mapping La Princesse de Clèves
Presenters: Virginia Scott, Vanderbilt University & Cara Wilson, Vanderbilt University
Presider: Saralee Peccolo-Taylor, Pellissippi State Community College
La Carte de Tendre and La Princesse de Clèves — What is the connection between these two 17th century French texts? Presenters Virginia Scott and Cara Wilson will describe a task-based digital project to engage upper-level students of French in exploring this question. Participants will be involved actively during the session and will have opportunities to discuss the notion of a task-based approach to teaching literary texts. Participants do not need to be familiar with the texts in question. The presentation will be in English and French.
