FREN 2310 - Introduction to French and Francophone Literature and Culture

(ALC-AS, CA-AS, SCD-AS) Satisfies Option 1.      
Fall, Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: FREN 2095  or CASE Q++ or permission of instructor required. Recommended courses after FREN 2310: any 3000-level literature or culture course.

Fall: M. C. Vallois; Spring: C. Howie.

This course, designed to follow FREN 2095 , introduces students to an array of literary and visual material from the French and Francophone world.  It aims to develop students’ proficiency in critical writing and thinking, as well as presenting students with the vocabulary and tools of literary and visual analysis.  Each section of FREN 2310 will have a different focus-for example, colonialism and the other, or the importance of women and sexual minorities in French and Francophone history, performance in literature and film, or image and narrative-but all sections of FREN 2310 will emphasize through writing assignments and in-class discussions, the development of those linguistic and conceptual tools necessary for cultural and critical fluency.
