The countdown is on everyone! Less than a month before departure for all of you! I hope you are getting as excited as I am.
Thursday's meeting was good one. We covered some essential background information regarding France's history as a colonial power, North African immigration to France, and the concept of "laicite." We'll be returning to all of these elements, especially laicite, many times during our study. If you have any questions regarding these topics, let me know!
Be sure to review all the items on the Travel Essentials handout. I've posted both handouts from Thursday here on the blog.
Next Thursday's meeting will focus on several important readings (review the Reading Schedule) and some last minute travel information.
See you next week!
