Honoring Winthrop-King Institute Director

Dr. Alec Hargreaves

Thursday, November 6, 2003 - 5:00 pm
Claude Pepper Center FSU

The French government is honoring Dr Alec Hargreaves, Director of FSU's Winthrop-King Institute for Contemporary French and Francophone Studies, in recognition of his international contribution to French studies.

Hargreaves has been named a Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Palmes Académiques, an élite Order of Merit originally created by Napoleon to recognize the work of outstanding researchers and educators.

The French Consul in Miami, M. Christophe Bouchard, will travel to Tallahassee on November 6, 2003, to formally confer the honor on Hargreaves in a ceremony on the FSU campus, starting at 5:00 p.m. in the Claude Pepper Center. The ceremony is open to the public. All are welcome.

A specialist on international migration in France, Hargreaves was appointed in 2001 to head FSU's newly created Winthrop-King Institute, which has rapidly gained an international reputation for its innovative programs in contemporary French and Francophone studies.

"I'm delighted by this award," said Hargreaves. "It honors not only my own work but also the vision and commitment of FSU in the field of French studies together with the inspirational support of the Winthrop-King Fund." The fund was established by the late Ada Belle Winthrop-King, a former FSU instructor whose endowment supports a range of scholarships, teaching and research enhancements designed to enable new generations of Florida State students to share her passionate interest in France.
