Eleanor Beardsley, NPR’s Correspondent in Paris, was the featured guest at our Paris French Studies Center last month. Eleanor has been reporting in France since 2004, and covers topics related to French society, culture, economics, and politics.

Eleanor presented to a large group of students about her life, her career in journalism, and what she loves about Paris.


She played two of her radio pieces to the group: one from her work covering the war in Ukraine, and the other on the end of a French law that had been in place for more than 200 years and required bakers to stagger their vacations so that Parisians would have fresh bread throughout the year. Listen to the latter here.

Our Paris French Studies students asked Eleanor many questions and were able to speak with her at length during the reception that followed her talk.
