Fall 2016, FREN 397A-01: Séminaire avancé - Femmes écrivaines africaines: s’écrire et écrire le monde (3). Prerequisites: Three French courses at the 200 level. While providing an overview of the trajectory of women’s writing from its beginnings in the late 60s, the course will focus more heavily on the literary endeavors of women from the late 70s to the twenty-first century.  Through representative works from this extended period, we shall examine how women address such issues as patriarchy, tradition, modernity, the self in society, as well as the question of feminism itself.
