Course Description

In this class, we will explore Francophone cultures in North America, addressing various aspects: architecture, cooking, music, folklore, literature, cinema, radio, and digital arts. From the colonial times (Nouvelle-France and Louisiane) until the contemporary period, we will study cultural productions as shaped by the specific conditions of the French-speaking communities (Acadiens, Canadiens français, Créoles, Franco-Ontariens, Québécois, etc.): their experience as minorities on their continent, in their country and (sometimes) even in their province; their relationships with a great variety of other groups (Native Americans, British, Métis, Protestants, etc.); their perspectives from a position between traditional customs (Catholicism, French) and present projects (open to a Global World).
