Global Displacement: Voix Francophones

FRENCH325S

This course will build advanced language skills while exploring issues in global migration and resettlement. Through historical, political, and literary perspectives, it will explore the current state of refugees and asylum seekers in Western host societies, with a particular focus on Francophone refugees in North America. Service will include the following opportunties: volunteering during ESL classes, translating documents for ESL courses, working one on one with refugees on developing English language competencies, accompanying nursing students on home health visits, coordinating with volunteers from the medical center to arrange translation for refugee health interventions, offering home-school linkages for refugee families that include decoding school paperwork, and finally, developing a series of cultural activities designed to help integrate refugees into US culture - and more specifically, local culture in Durham.
