Wisconsin's French Connections Project

and
Ken Fleurant
Department of French, UW-Green Bay

 

Professors Gabrielle Verdier (UW-Milwaukee) and Ken Fleurant (UW-Green Bay) are co-directing a collaborative, outreach project, sponsored in part by the Wisconsin Humanities Council, to commemorate the history and continued presence of French and Francophone people in the State of Wisconsin.  The Wisconsin French Connections website contains links to historical sites, geneological data, publications, music and video clips, art work, and culinary information among other resources. Collaborators include five UW Universities, K-12 teachers and students, citizens and cultural organizations across the state.  A recent recipient of the State of Wisconsin Commendation award, the French Connections project began in 1997 and will continue through Wisconsin’s Sequicentenial anniversary. The url for this website is: http://gbms01.uwgb.edu/~wisfrench/   Please e-mail Ken Fleurant at: fleurank@uwgb.edu if you would like to join this collaborative effort or have any questions.
