Chris Pinet, a retired French professor at Montana State University, was made an honorary member of the American Association of Teachers of French at the annual meeting of the AATF held in Philadelphia.

Pinet also served as lead editor and wrote an introduction to a special issue of the "French Review," "Algérie/France," published in May. Kristin Drumheller, a graphics designer at MSU, created the cover. The issue included a preface by Azouz Begag, former French Minister for Equal Opportunities and an autobiographical essay by Malika Mokeddem, the well-known French/Algerian author, as well as three articles on Albert Camus and Algeria.

Pinet recently published two articles, one entitled "City Streets in the Parisian Red Belt" in "Contemporary French Civilization" and "'Ostensible' Signs: Scarves, Veils, Kippas, Turbans, and Crosses" in "France in the Twenty-First Century: New Perspectives/La France au XXIe siècle: nouvelles perspectives." A profile on Pinet was published in May in France/Amérique, the largest French newsmagazine in the United States.
