The director of my grad program, Ritt Deitz, is going to be on Wisconsin Public Radio! Okay, a little small-time maybe, but he’s pretty much famous. Here are the details:
When: Thursday at 3pm CST
Where: Wisconsin Public Radio (the show is a podcast and webcast)
What: “Here on Earth: Radio without Borders.” What draws Americans to become fluent in French and to things French in general? Once they become fluent and well-traveled, what unexpected new reasons keep them devoted to the language? Why does the non-French-speaking population in the U.S. continue to imagine Francophilia as an elite luxury for wine-sipping painting enthusiasts who only want to watch films in black and white?
I have class all day and night on Thursday (lame!) but I’m definitely going to listen to it online! Hopefully they get some good callers. 🙂
