Lindsey Anderson ’13 Senior Profile: French and Francophone Studies

imageMy name is Lindsey Anderson. I am graduating in May as a French & Francophone Studies major and Philosophy minor. I was first introduced to French in high school in North Carolina and I went to Montpellier the summer after my freshman year at William & Mary, and since then started taking German as well. My interests are analytic philosophy and post-colonial theory (talk about disparate!). My senior seminar paper analyses the Palais de la Porte Dorée in Paris as a colonial monument and lieu de mémoire.

This summer I will begin my Master’s in Teaching, and I intend to be teaching French in a public high school or private pre-school/grammar school in North Carolina by this Fall. Both possibilities will indubitably involve my favorite children’s book, Le Petit Prince. My advisor, Giulia Pacini, has encouraged and inspired me all through my time here and I can not thank her and the spectacular MLL faculty enough.
