FREN 344 - La Francophonie
Prerequisite: Three courses in French at the 200 level. An analysis of styles, genres, and themes in relation to particular cultural contexts, as represented in literary works written in French by authors from countries other than France. Of particular interest is French language literature from Africa, the Caribbean, and Canada. May be repeated for degree credit if the topic is different.
Winter 2018, FREN 344-01: La Francophonie: Le Roman Francophone à la Première Personne (3). An introduction to francophone prose, focusing on first-person narratives including autobiographical, semi-autobiographical, and fictional texts. We examine the way the narrating subject represents herself or himself in the context of or in opposition to a collective entity or experience. Issues such as narrative technique, point of view, space and identity, subjectivity, and representation receive special attention. Texts are from Africa, Québec, and the Caribbean. (HL) Kamara.
