You will be expected to teach on the following modules: France and Second World War (stage H), French Society on Screen (stages I and H), The Francophone World (stage I), Ab initio French Language and Society (stage C), and one LFA module.

The starting date is 1 September 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.
