"Le Café Français" is a networking event for teachers and professors that offers them a chance to meet each other and discuss teaching practices.
After a 30-minute lecture on a subject relevant to France and a Q&A session with the speaker, teachers are invited to socialize for an hour over French wine and hors d’oeuvres.
This time, we will have the opportunity to listen to Olivier Saint-Vincent, Philosophy Professor at the International School of Boston, who will explore the condition of women in 17th century France through two literary works: Molière’s masterpiece L’Ecole des Femmes and an anonymous erotic novel, L’Ecole des Filles.
