Comments
Spring 2021 focus: Decolonizations In this seminar, we explore the relationship between twentieth- and twenty-first works from around the French-language world, and their cultural and societal contexts. Specifically, we look at how works of varied genres relate to, evoke, or subvert notions of subjectivity, as well as how such work has (and has not) informed or been informed by patterns and dynamics of subjectivity within "Francophone studies." Our study will also weave to parallel transformations in postcolonial studies and global studies, as well as movements of decolonization, anti-colonialism, litterature-monde, and intersectionality. Typical assignments include course discussion, response papers, presentations, and a final paper. The course is conducted in French; no final exam is given.
  Course Description
In this seminar, we explore the relationship between modern French-language literature writ large and its cultural and societal contexts. Specifically, we look at how works of varied genres relate to, evoke, or subvert notions of subjectivity and autonomy in various spaces of the world. We also study how the production of such literature involves the overlap of varied discourses and aesthetic systems, and its connections to questions such as citizenship, disability, gender, race, and sexuality. Typical assignments include course discussion, response papers, presentations, and a final paper. The course is conducted in French; no final exam is given.
