SPEAKING OF FRENCH: Professor Michel Zink, who holds the chair of Littératures de la France médiévale at the Collège de France, taught a series of four lectures in September titled “Poésie et récit : l'exemple de Rutebeuf" or "Poetry and Narration:  Rutebeuf as Example." Students, faculty, and medievalists from Yale, Amherst, Smith, Brown and other area universities attended Zink's lectures held in the Russell House.

 

Zink lectured this fall thanks to a grant from the Thomas and Catharine McMahon Memorial Fund. Jeff Rider, Chair of the Medieval Studies Program, chair of the Romance Languages and Literatures Department and professor of romance languages and literatures, invited Zink to speak.
