English Majors Translate and Participate in Reading

UMF English majors take part in a wide variety of campus activities—from student clubs to poetry readings.

Recently, students in Prof. Clint Bruce’s advanced French course joined acclaimed Canadian poet Serge Patrice Thibodeau, visiting UMF from neighboring New Brunswick, to read selections from two books of his travel essays, Lieux cachés (Hidden Places, 2005) and L’Attrait des pôles (Polar Attractions, 2013). Students from the course read their original English translations alongside Thibodeau’s French texts.
