Socio-Cultural Minorities in France Today

Rosalie Vermette (left) will discuss "On the Edge: Socio-Cultural Minorities in France Today" at 4:30 p.m. Friday (26 March) during a Sabbatical Speaker Talk in Room 264, Campus Center, Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis, 420 University Boulevard, Indianapolis. Dr. Vermette is Professor of French and Adjunct Professor of Women's Studies and a founding faculty member of University College.

She notes that both within France and between France and other nations there exist borders that attempt to separate social, cultural, and linguistic minority groups, creating a special category of "edge peoples" who have, metaphorically, one foot on either side of the divide.
