Why Gascony? Where is it? What is it like to live in an historic French town? How do you buy a house in France? Having owned a house there for 25 years, Ullrich Langer introduces you to one of the prettiest regions in the south of France and explains the ins and outs of house ownership in the country.

Ullrich Langer retired from the Department of French & Italian in 2020, just as the pandemic was forcing us all onto zoom. He had been teaching in Madison since 1985. Prior to his UW years, he taught at Bryn Mawr College, after receiving his Ph.D. from Princeton in 1980. He is a specialist of French Renaissance literature and intellectual history. In 1996, he bought a house in La Romieu, in the southwest of France, and then moved to Lectoure, 10 miles away, in 2009. He and his wife Anne have been splitting time between Madison and France. He remains active in research and writing and enjoys cycling and walking.

If you have preliminary questions for the speakers, please email them in advance to program coordinators Esther Olson at by Wednesday, November 9.
