Conference Series: France in the 19th Century

19 August – 2 September – 30 September - 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Alliance Française d'Adélaïde

History Conferences are back in 2022 for a new season! This year, the focus will be on a vibrant yet lesser-known century in the history of France: the 19th century. Historians Romain Fathi and Claire Rioult will take you through this tumultuous period in the country’s history, starting with Napoléon and the almighty Premier Empire, and finishing with the formidable debacle of his nephew’s – Napoléon III – regime, aptly named le Second Empire. This fascinating period has left its mark on today’s France, both in politics and culture, and is therefore quite important to understand contemporary France.

From our students

I love the Alliance! A little part of France to visit every week and learn French in a fun and friendly way! Perfect...

I love the sense of community at the AF. I feel like I have come a long way in just a year. A year ago, I'd never picked up a French book but now I can speak sentences in class.


It is great to be able to go to France and have the locals understand you... and I can understand them now!
