UMD French professor Dana Lindaman had the opportunity to attend French President Emmanuel Macron's address to Congress on April 25 as a guest of Minnesota's 8th District Representative Rick Nolan. Representative Nolan posted the following statement on his Facebook page along with the picture above:

"It was my pleasure to have University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) Associate Professor of French Studies Dana Lindaman, Ph.D. as my guest at the President of France, Emmanuel Macron’s, address to a joint session of Congress today.

"Professor Lindaman came to UMD in 2010 to develop and teach courses related to French studies. Together with Professor Kovacovic, he revived the French major at UMD and has helped grow the program into a dynamic major supporting student interest in French from across the UMD campus. Here we are with Minnesota’s very own U.S. Senator Tina Smith."
