Course Description

Prerequisite: F250, F265, or appropriate placement test score

In this introduction to creative and critical writing in French, our primary goal will be the development and improvement of writing skills through various short creative and critical pieces.  Emphasis will be placed on field activity and engagement with the many resources offered by IU—including museums and outdoor venues--as sources of inspiration, both creative and critical.  We will try our hands at a variety of exercises, including: a “personals” ad; the brief autobiography of an object, costume or painting in the Eskenazi Art Museum; dialogues to be rehearsed and performed at the outdoor Conrad Prebys amphitheatre; nature writing composed on the banks of the arboretum pond; and critical reviews of two films. Assignments will include a group project making a trailer for one (student’s choice) of the films.
