Class Details

In this French course, we will read and examine literary texts from the twelfth to the 19th centuries, and films from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In order to analyze them, we will briefly situate them in their social and historical contexts. These works will help us better understand contemporary France and explore France’s colonial past. We will also learn how to write a short research paper in French in the form of an explication de texte. While the themes, authors, time periods will vary, our approach will remain the same. The three themes love, fear, and France’s colonial past will be the course’s organizing principles. A small section of our course will be devoted to grammar revisions in order to continue to improve our reading and language skills. Conducted in French
