French & Francophone Studies

The Department of French and Francophone Studies lays the foundation for an understanding and appreciation of French language and culture through the literature and the history of French arts, thought, and institutions.

Students from Kathryne Corbin's "Intermediate French" class study different volumes of the Encyclopédie ou Dictionnaire raisonné des sciences, des arts et des métiers, par une Société de Gens de lettres. The text was published under the direction of Diderot and d'Alembert, with 17 volumes of text and 11 volumes of plates between 1751 and 1772. Photo: Patrick Montero.

Bicentennial City

Bicentennial City

Through March 20, 2020
Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery

The Bicentennial in Philadelphia laid bare some of the most pressing questions of America’s national identity. Five Haverford and Bryn Mawr College students collaborated with poet Thomas Devaney and Greenhouse Media to explore this surreal moment in Philadelphia and national history through an experimental documentary film. The exhibition Bicentennial City continues that project as an interactive installation with multi-channel projections, sculptures, and Bicentennial ephemera, seeking to explore the many roles that myth and memory play in the psyche of a city.

The exhibition Bicentennial City grows out of the Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities and VCAM’s Summer 2019 DocuLab project, The Bicentennial in Philadelphia.

The Barrel Fires Wake to the American Dream

The Barrel Fires didn’t start at Haverford, but it was school ties that brought band members Jay Carlis ’99, Mike Kay ’00, and Josh Meyer ’98 together to play original music and have fun doing it.

Read "Mixed Media: Music" from the Fall 2019 issue of Haverford Magazine.
