Christina Les explores Laurent Cantet’s presentation of cultural conflicts and social relationships in the 2008 film Entre les murs (The Class).
About the Presenter
Christina is from North Yorkshire and studied French and German at the University of Nottingham. After a few years doing odd jobs in random places (including at an Austrian travel agent, a National Trust stately home and a company which makes horse-riding hats) she decided to go back to university to learn some new skills.
Christina finished an MA in Translation Studies at Bangor University in 2013 and is now working on a PhD, as part of a project called “European Travellers to Wales 1750–2010”. She is looking at how Wales has been talked about in literature – e.g. poetry, novels and plays – from all over Europe. As well as her research, she enjoys teaching French and German to students of all ages, from primary to 60+!
