Histoire de France Workshop Series
THESE WORKSHOPS WILL BE TAUGHT IN FRENCH, FOR STUDENTS OF LEVEL 5 & UP
September 26 : The French Renaissance
At the dusk of the Middle Ages, France and Europe experienced an unprecedented era of renewal and change (renaissance means rebirth). Through the 16th century, France took art and literature to new heights and shaped its early national identity, while stunning châteaux sprang up all around the country. Although the humanistic dreams of the era’s thinkers ultimately dissolved into a series of religious civil wars, the Renaissance is still seen as a golden age of human progress.
This 2-hour workshop will shine a light on this fascinating period of French history, setting the scene for the modern era of world history.
Octobre 3: The Century of Louis XIV
The reign of King Louis XIV is unanimously considered to be an exceptional period of French influence in Europe. Between the rise of absolute monarchy and the emergence of a modern, centralized state, the 17th century or “le Grand Siècle” is definitely that of France. Artists, writers, intellectuals, architects and decorators at Versailles all contributed to cementing the country’s cultural and political prominence for the ages.
This 2-hour workshop will shine a light on this fascinating period of France’s history, in Coucou’s signature casual style.
October 10: The Napoleonic Era
Napoléon Bonaparte, who died exactly 200 years ago this year, is one of the most famous historical characters of all time and an endlessly fascinating and divisive figure. A child of the French Revolution, a military genius and a brilliant reformer of the state – or a mass murderer, depending on who you ask, he left behind a legacy still hotly debated to this day.
This 2-hour workshop will shine a light on the many facets of this central figure of French history.
