FRE207F is an intensive, four-week language immersion program held in Aix-en-Provence during the summer of 2018. During their stay students conduct projects related to sociolinguistics and documenting the linguistic landscape of southern France.
This course examines what makes certain spaces — a multi-ethnic suburb of Paris, a museum, or a building — more controversial or problematic than others. Students produce a body of journalistic work based on historical and archival research, interviews, investigation, and field work in Paris during spring break.
This course introduces hardware and software technologies employed in the creation of human-computer interfaces, and, more broadly, thefield of humancomputer interaction (HCI) . The course will help develop a solid understanding of the concepts and practices of HCI, and current research topics in human-computer interaction and interfaces.
The site served as a showcase for student designs for, imlementations of, and evaluations of human-computer systems. Students posted their designs, diagrams and videos of projects to the site, for review and comments by other course participants.
