Nina Furry received her M.A. in French Linguistics and Ph.D. in Romance Linguistics with specializations in applied linguistics, second language acquisition and pedagogy from the University of Texas at Austin. Since joining the faculty at UNC in 1989, she has taught, coordinated and developed materials for courses at all levels in French language, including Business French and Phonetics. Her interest in students' reading development in a foreign language has expanded into an integrated-skills approach to foster increased student command of structure and form in extended discourse contexts from intermediate through advanced- level study. She works with the language director in the orientation, training, course assignment and coordination of graduate teaching fellows who are responsible for teaching most of the courses in French language. She also works with the exchange lecturers who come each year from France to teach in the department. She has lived in France herself, on two occasions as an exchange lecturer teaching English at the Universities of Paris and Montpellier and several other years as Resident Director for the UNC Year-at-Montpellier study abroad program. Since 2004 she has been the Departmental Director for that and other study abroad programs in French. She has also acted as Faculty advisor to the French Honor Society, Pi Delta Phi, and continues to function in such a capacity with the French House. During the summer, she coordinates the placement testing of incoming freshmen for French and Spanish. Hannelore Jarausch received her MA and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with a specialization in 18th and 20th century French literature. After teaching language, literature and humanities at the University of Missouri-Columbia, she joined the Department of Romance Languages at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 1983. Since 1987 she has been Director of the French Language Program, responsible for the training and supervision of graduate teaching fellows. In addition to the methods class for new graduate assistants, she teaches first through fourth semester language courses, grammar review and composition, as well as undergraduate literature courses, from the 17th to the 21st century. She has twice served as resident director for the UNC Program in Montpellier. Her particular interests are the pedagogy of literature, the incorporation of literature and culture in language courses, approaches to writing, and the preparation of future faculty. She has published in these areas, frequently presents at regional and national conferences and is the co-author of other college texts.
