- Course Description
Prerequisite: F250, F265, equivalent or consent of department.
In this class, we will explore a variety of works (novels, poems, theater, and film) created by artists from France and the French-speaking world (North-Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the Caribbean) which focus on projecting and re-imagining the Self. Students will discover how literature and film have envisioned the different ways of talking about oneself both critically and creatively from the Renaissance to the 21st century. We will read and watch these works that pre-date or coincide with the age of Facebook, Twitter and social media, learn to place them in their cultural and political contexts, analyze them, and discuss how they apply to our own personal forms of self-expression and self-understanding.
Taught in French.
