General Public

Learn about the great unknown or forgotten French women in history.

Pack a bag lunch and join Alliance Française d’Omaha’s two-hour workshop on Saturday, September 15th at KANEKO.

History is full of famous men and their accomplishments. So much so that they often overshadow the many women who have contributed to and had an impact on the world. Learn about French women before 1914 who led amazing and trailblazing lives and left the world a richer place. This workshop will be English with an opportunity to improve your French vocabulary.

Requirement: For all levels of French learners.

Instructor: Juliette Parnell was raised and educated in Paris. She is currently a Professor of French at UNO, where she teaches a variety of French classes. She particularly enjoys teaching French history and culture. Last semester, she offered for the first time a class on Francophone West Africa literature and culture.
