Essays written in French by Duncan College senior Meredith McCain and McMurtry College sophomore Annelise Goldman were published in the inaugural issue of L’Indécis au Précis, a peer-reviewed journal affiliated with UCLA’s Department of French & Francophone Studies. McCain describes debates among Muslim feminists in France over the government’s ban on women wearing the niqab; Goldman focuses on the meeting point between Arabic and French slang to better understand the assimilation of Maghreb immigrants into French culture.
