About the Center...

The Francophone Research and Resource Center (FRC) develops and conducts programs, workshops, conferences, seminars and other activities for a wide range of audiences, Francophiles and Francophones, members of the University  of Southern California community, French teachers at all levels, and students learning French, French literature and French culture.

Housed by USC’s Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, with the support of USC libraries and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy to the United States of America, the USC Francophone Research and Resource Center serves as a hub for a diverse set of multidisciplinary activities involving distinguished Francophone writers, scholars, filmmakers, journalists, and scientists. Its main goal is to create new interdisciplinary bridges between local and Francophone institutions.
