Local-Global: The French Experience Presented by Au Courant

Last week I attended the open house for The Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture. The house on Routh St. is full of character and poise. The stained glass windows, wood floors, and books galore made the house very feel very welcoming. The Institute bought the house in 1980 and have since been calling the house a home. Hosting lectures, book clubs, and open-intellectual conversations have become a staple in Dallas culture and intellectual stimulation.

About a year ago, the Dallas Institute started a new group, Au Courant. The group, originally inspired by The Institute's vision, brings together Dallas' young creative up-and-coming leaders with Dallas' prominent and established leaders. This semester begins a series called "Local/Global."

Don't miss their first event highlighting the global bounty of our local scene. It starts with the French - who brought us art, architecture, literature, fashion, and of course food and wine.

Monday, October 19th from 6:00-7:30pm
Admission: Members $25; Nonmembers $35; Member/Teachers $10.

Accompanied by rich visual images, Dr. Elizabeth New of “French Affaires” will discuss various facets of French food, culture, and what makes French cuisine unique.

Benjamin Calais of Calais Winery in the Deep Ellum neighborhood will highlight the French culture of wine and talk about his wine offerings here in Dallas. We’ll top off the evening with a wine and cheese tasting.

Your parting souvenir will be a resource list of authentic French food and wine experiences in the Dallas area so you can continue the “Local-Global” theme after the French soiree at The Dallas Institute!

  21. The advantage that a tutor has over a teacher: is that a tutor is not seen as an overbearing authority but is seen instead as a helper who may also be in the age of the student's peer group and who therefore would be familiar and sensitive to the needs and feelings of a colleague. A tutor can give one-to-one teaching, something that most teachers can only dream about. When you teach a subject, you yourself also learn or comprehend it in different ways. Openly show to your student that their viewpoint also counts with you and that you are willing to also learn from them.
