Voting in the US
Who has the power to elect the president of one of the most influential countries in the world and what is it like to be a minority voter there? In this episode we will look at the voting history of the United States of America to find out how the voting system really works, how it has evolved over time, and whether there is hope for more equal representation.

Mia and Coline ruin your movie: The Blind Side

In this episode of Learn With US, Mia and Coline illustrate the numerous connections between the 2009 movie The Blind Side—directed by John Lee Hancock and inspired by the life of NFL player Michael Oher—and the notion of White Saviourism, or the trope of the white person as the “saviour” of the oppressed. From the deep-rooted origins of the White Saviour Complex in American history to the consequences of such narratives, join us to analyse what seemed at first like an “anti-racist” movie.

Sports scholarship at university: benefit or illusion ?

White privilege, or how there are none so blind as those who will not see

In France, we have always approached racism through the only prism of the discriminated ones, whether in teaching, academic or medias sources. In contrast, Anglo-Saxon academia (mainly in the United States and the United-Kingdom) has highlighted the existence of a 'white privilege', which shifts the way in which the racial question is approached: to understand racism, we must first turn to those who, unconsciously or not, perpetuate it.
In this podcast, we will look at how the legacy of segregation is still being imposed on black people today. To make this a bit more concrete, we will use the example of housing, where there are huge disparities between certain neighborhoods. If all this seems a priori a bit indigestible, we also talk about films and series available on Netflix that deal with the issue in a very relevant way ! See you soon!

The American Dream

I've always dreamed of living the American Dream ... that founding concept of the United States, but what is it? Success, a dream and reality?

Le projet pédagogique

Le but de cet exercice est de valoriser les compétences orales des étudiant-e-s par l'apprentissage de compétences nouvelles (le podcast) et le suivi d'un projet concret portant sur un aspect de la civilisation états-unienne sur l'ensemble du semestre. 

Nous avons commencé le semestre par une série de lectures et de discussions en classe sur le thème du racisme structurel aux États-Unis, puis en semaine 5, les é ont choisi leurs thèmes et leurs équipes en vue de la réalisation d'un podcast en groupe sur un sujet de leur choix.
De la semaine 7 à la semaine 11, nous nous sommes retrouvés en TD pour travailler collectivement et par équipe à la fois la dimension technique de l'exercice et la démarche de recherche et de rédaction derrière chaque projet. 
Les podcasts ont été rendus en fin de semestre et ont constitué 60% de la note finale de chaque étudiant.e. Ont été évalués la qualité de la recherche en amont, la structure et la clarté de chaque argument ou présentation, le travail collaboratif, la qualité de l'enregistrement et l'enthousiasme des équipes, qui ont su toutes mener à bien leur projet initial, malgré les difficultés imposées par la pandémie.
Compétence visées
- Travailler en équipe à distance
- Mener à bout un projet collaboratif
- Produire un document sonore en anglais destiné au public étudiant
- Concevoir le contenu et la forme d’un document sonore en anglais
- Maitriser la technique de la conception d’un document sonore
- Élaborer et utiliser une bibliographie
- Savoir synthétiser une question à partir d’un ensemble de sources complexes
Les cursus
