June 15, 2015 (6:45pm-8pm)
L’Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie
810 2nd Avenue, 6th Floor
Co-hosted by L’Union Alsacienne de NY,
BZH-NY, and the Corses de NY

Hosted by United Nations Officer Thierry Kranzer, this conference will address the hot-button issue of the role — past, present, and future — of regional languages in France. The discussion will center around the politics, socio-economic impact, and perception of these regional languages, with a focus on dispelling popular misconceptions about the vast linguistic diversity in modern-day France.

Refreshments, including Alsatian wine and Breton pastries, will be served following the conference.
