FR 375 - Women's Voices in the Francophone World

(3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: FR 216 . Students read and discuss texts from contemporary women authors who write in French but whose links with French culture take on many forms. The authors studied hail from many parts of the world: not only from the French-speaking countries of Europe, but from different parts of Africa, Asia, Canada, the Near East, and the United States. For some, French was their native tongue; but for a great many, French was their language of adoption, the language they considered most suited to express the complex ties between their own personal story and the social, political, and cultural context in which that story has unfolded. Issues of race, gender, class, language, and power relations are discussed in the context of the works chosen. IAF/IG
