Undergraduate award winners

For the first time in three years, the Department hosted an in-person awards ceremony and an in-person commencement reception this spring. Spirits were high for both events, held in the University Club in the Indiana Memorial Union, as students, faculty and staff embraced the opportunity to see each other face to face, celebrate student accomplishments, and share good food. 

Associate Professor Hall Bjørnstad’s recent monograph The Dream of Absolutism: Louis XIV and the Logic of Modernity (University of Chicago Press, 2021) explores the culture of absolutism and what we can learn about it from 17th-century French society.

Three PhD graduates in French Linguistics

We congratulate 16 BA graduates, 10 MA graduates, and 6 PhD graduates who successfully completed their degrees in French or Italian during the pandemic. A diverse group, these students persevered and are moving on to their next exciting steps in life.
