York’s Course Offerings in the French of England

The French of England: Texts and Territories
Optional MA graduate module taught in the MA in Medieval Literatures by Professor Jocelyn Wogan-Browne, Spring 2005-2010.

Anglo-Norman Reading Group
A voluntary weekly reading group for historical and literary documents in the French of England, run by Professors Mark Ormrod and Jocelyn Wogan-Browne during the Spring term, 2006-2009 and by Dr. Thomas O'Donnell and Katharine Bilous in 2010. People come in and out according to their own particular interests in the weekly menu of texts. We try to do as little grammar as possible and concentrate on reading passages and extracts across a wide range. Anyone should feel free to come, including those without any previous knowledge of French (that may be a hard place from which to begin and keep up, or not -- depending on what other linguistic experience you have -- but it is very helpful to know if there is a demand for French from scratch or a desire for awareness of the field, even if not in the original language). An initial menu of texts is proposed and arranged at the first organization meeting of the Spring term and an email list set up.

Ancillary French Modules
Beginning in the academic year 2006-2007, York will offer Ancillary French Modules, i.e. language and text courses in Old French and the French of England at Beginners and Experienced levels over Autumn and Spring terms, in addition to a continuing module in the literature and texts of the French of England.
 
Graduate Student Work
From its inception, the French of England project has focused on graduate teaching and mentoring to promote awareness of the French of England as a scholarly field. Graduate students at Fordham and other New York City area universities (working through the New York City Medieval Studies Doctoral Consortium) as well as graduate students at the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of York have actively contributed to the FOE project in a variety of ways.
