RLFR 322 Joan of Arc in French Literature and Culture

Last offered Spring 2014

Burned as a heretic in 1431 and sainted in 1920, Joan of Arc has remained one of France's most contentious figures. This course examines stories of Joan of Arc between the Hundred Years War and the 2012 presidential elections. Discussions will be informed by readings from Pizan, Voltaire, Michelet, Delteil, Anouilh, and others. Students will also analyze iconography, film, political speeches, and schoolbooks. Throughout the semester, we will examine the relationships between gender and identity, religiosity and secularism, nationalism and biography, and the extreme right's enduring johannic obsession. Conducted in French.
