FREN 330 - World-making in French and Francophone Literature

FC ARHU CD WINT
4 credits
What is a world?” Pheng Cheah asks in his 2016 book. How are worlds made? What is the difference between Francophone literature and World literature? Is there more than one world? How do writers consider the global and the local? How do creators consider the divide between the global North and the global South? In this course, we will examine these questions and more as they relate to contemporary literature in French. Through our study of theatre, novels and film, we will also explore how medium impacts each work. Conducted in French (with some supplemental readings in English), students are expected to read and communicate in the target language. This course is open to all French majors and minors.
Prerequisites & Notes: Fren 205/206
