Students can expect close readings of the French seventeenth-century dramatic canon (Corneille, Racine, Molière) as well as comparative analyses of 21st century Francophone plays (Mouawad, Reza, NDiaye, Shaheman, Lemoine, Kwahulé). Grades will be based on a presentation and scaffolded final paper. Readings in French, seminar language in French with English as needed.
