Introduction to Romance Linguistics
AS.211.311 (01)

If the modern‐day Romance languages all evolved from Latin, how and why do they differ in so many important ways? What drives language change in the first place and why should this be the case? We approach these questions not only from a linguistic perspective (analyzing Romance sound systems, vocabulary, morphosyntax, and semantics), but from a cognitive‐psychological and a socio‐political perspective as well. Recommended Course Background: At least intermediate-level proficiency in a Romance language as assessed by coursework or placement exam; some previous coursework in linguistics is desirable but not necessary.

Il s’agira dans ce cours d’une part de lire des textes de Diderot, Baudelaire et d'autres avec une approche philosophique (quelles sont les theses défendues par l’auteur? Quells sont les arguments en leur faveur?), d’autre part de redécouvrir les oeuvres d'art dont il sera question, voire de reconquérir un certain point de vue esthétique par l’épreuve des textes. Certaines séances se dérouleront au Baltimore Museum of Art, afin de permettre une confrontation directe avec les peintures.

Voodoo and Literature
AS.212.403 (01)

This course will examine the various ways voodoo, as the Unknown, has been represented, misrepresented, recuperated, and interpreted in the aftermath of the Haitian Revolution from the early nineteenth century to the present day. While historians have debunked the role of voodoo in the aftermath of the Haitian Revolution, the literary representation of the slaves in captivity is often associated with the will to liberation enacted in the secret practice of voodoo on the plantation. The history of voodoo in Saint-Domingue (Haiti) is intertwined with the history of colonial subversion, ancestral medicine, and the physical resistance of the enslaved people. Yet the most defining event in the armed uprising by the enslaved, the ceremony of Bois Caiman (August 14, 1791) still divides historians, novelists, and anthropologists. Where history and anthropology seem to flounder in trying to capture the mystery of such ceremony, literature soars majestically, maintaining the mystery by using the freedom of the imagination as its sole support. Might the transmission of voodoo during the colonial period, be understood as the historical mode of preservation of an ancestral secret practice that can only be transmitted through oral tradition and rituals, which may have been lost in the attempt to produce written translations ? Readings in French and English may include works by Alejo Carpentier, Aimé Césaire, Patrick Chamoiseau, Marie Chauvet, Edwidge Danticat, René Depestre, Zora Neale Hurston, Frédéric Marcelin, Alfred Métraux, Toni Morisson, Jacques Roumain, Simone Schwarz-Bart, William Seabrook, Derek Walcott, Richard Wright, to be supplemented by films, an art exhibit, music, and cultural demonstrations of voodoo.

The City in French Literature
AS.212.406 (01)

The city is an integral theme, even a privileged character, in the literary and speculative texts of the 17th and 18th century. It is often understood to stand in opposition to the royal court and embodies the spirit of the people in a way related to the modern notion of “solidarity”. This course will look at a number of examples of the peculiar status of the French city (especially Paris) from the late Renaissance through the First Empire. Selections from Marguerite de Valois, Mme de Sévigné, Montesquieu, Diderot, Rousseau, Turgot, Ruault, Rétif de la Bretonne, Mercier, Saint-Just, Robespierre, Napoléon Bonaparte, with a coda from Balzac and Michelet. Please note: taught in French

French Proposal Prep
AS.212.803 (01)

1st semester: Develop list of already-read works in your chosen field to develop a thesis subject. Identify 2 co-advisors of the ABD project; the expectation is that 1 will direct the thesis following the ABD defense. Register in this advisor’s section (01: Desormeaux; 02: Anderson; 03: Russo; 04: Schilling). 1st month: Discuss with co-advisors your understanding of the core research question(s) and prepare a provisional abstract (an ongoing working tool). The abstract includes 1) well-articulated thesis statement; 2) description of proposed methodology; 3) list of proposed primary works to be studied; 4) justification of the project’s relevance to the field and its interdisciplinary reach. It should be accompanied by a report on your literature search: situate your project within the existing scholarly corpus. 2nd month: prepare an annotated bibliography of primary and secondary works. Expect it to expand significantly during ABD prep as well as after the ABD defense. 3rd month: review and modify the abstract with the co-advisors; develop a provisional outline of your ABD text. Present a reading list for the period between the 1st and 2nd semesters of proposal prep. 2nd semester: Meet with the co-advisors to report on the interim research and revisit if necessary the proposed outline and abstract. Submit proposal for the sample chapter. 1st month: begin writing the sample chapter. 2nd month: in the light of how the sample chapter is progressing, review the outline with the co-advisors, then begin writing a narrative of potential thesis chapters. 3rd month: once the foregoing are drafted, write up the methodological introduction and finalize the annotated bibliography. Finally, review the abstract for completeness and revise the ABD for language and formatting. The ABD must be approved by the ABD co-advisors before it is distributed for defense. Goal: ~25 pages of supporting material; ~30-page writing sample; an annotated bibliography. ABD is not to exceed 75 pp.

Le monde francophone
AS.210.409 (01)

This course examines both sociolinguistic and cultural aspects of the French-speaking world and the relationship between la francophonie and France itself. We focus on five regions—Sub-Saharan Africa (Cameroun and Senegal), Northern Africa (Morocco and Algeria), the Caribbean (Martinique and Haiti), North America (Quebec), and Europe (Belgium)—and consider language features unique to those regional varieties, the status of French as opposed to other indigenous languages and creoles, the demographics of their speakers, and the representation of their culture in media (particularly in short stories, poetry, song, and film). A semester-long research project on one of these main areas will allow students to combine their study of the French-speaking world with other disciplines of interest to them.

Museums and Identity
AS.211.329 (01)

The museum boom of the last half-century has centered largely around museums dedicated to the culture and history of identity groups, including national, ethnic, religious, and minority groups. In this course we will examine such museums and consider their long history through a comparison of the theory and practice of Jewish museums with other identity museums. We will study the various museological traditions that engage identity, including the collection of art and antiquities, ethnographic exhibitions, history museums, heritage museums, art museums, and other museums of culture. Some of the questions we will ask include: what are museums for and who are they for? how do museums shape identity? and how do the various types of museums relate to one another? Our primary work will be to examine a variety of contemporary examples around the world with visits to local museums including the Jewish Museum of Maryland, the National Museum of African American History and Culture and the National Museum of the American Indian.

La France Contemporaine
AS.212.353 (02)

Students will explore contemporary French society and culture through a wide variety of media: fiction and non-fiction readings (graphic novels, news periodicals, popular magazines), films, music, art, websites, and podcasts. A diverse range of hands-on activities in addition to guided readings will help students develop cultural awareness as we discuss topics such as education, politics, humor, sports, cuisine, immigration, slang, and national identity, as well as the historical factors that have influenced these facets of French and francophone culture.

The Count of Monte Cristo and its Avatars
AS.212.402 (01)

Alexandre Dumas’s Le Comte de Monte Cristo (1844-46) is widely regarded as one of the most popular novels of all time and as one of the best adventure novels ever written. Perhaps no other masterpiece of French literature has been subjected around the world to such countless film adaptations, including animation, television series, and serials. This course aims to study and contextualize the reasons behind this sustained transnational and transcultural interest. Close reading and analysis of Dumas' novel will provide a good point of departure to explore problems that cut across nineteenth-century French society: politics, social class, revolution, family, love and desire, revenge, justice, science, and religion. Course conducted in French; most films in English or with English subtitles.

For the Record: Jazz Cultures of Modern France
AS.212.413 (01)

Across the 20th century, mainstream and avant-garde French culture was deeply impacted by the presence of African American musicians and performing artists hailing from the jazz tradition. From the Josephine Baker craze of the 1920s to the second post-war which welcomed the innovations of bebop and sixties-era free improvisation, metropolitan France proved a space where expatriate and exiled Black Americans could both perpetuate the tradition and innovate by turns. At the same time, French tastemakers, critics, and musicians eager to adopt new forms and styles debated the extent to which American jazz music in its various strains could be “made French.” This course in transcultural French studies will feature readings in music criticism, history, and literature, as well as frequent close listening. It will culminate in a local concert reflecting France’s continued connection to and support of jazz and related improvised musics. Though some background in French language and in musical notation is desirable (students are encouraged to engage in original-source research), all core course readings will be provided in English. Discussion in English.

Rousseau: Citizenship and Exile
AS.212.741 (01)

Throughout his life Rousseau presented himself by turns as the citizen of a Republic, a stateless outcast, the resident of a vanishing homeland of the heart, and the focal point of an international conspiracy. He invented new foundations for political communities that could never be implemented or were misunderstood during the revolutionary Terror. The families he portrayed were both patriarchal and defiantly anti-normative. He affirmed his desire to belong and insisted on his irreducible difference; he extolled friendship and engineered breakups. Through readings of Rousseau's major political, autobiographical and fictional works we shall examine how and why communities, personal identity and citizenship are alternately built and destroyed. Taught in French. Course open to undergraduates with permission of the instructor.

L'entre-deux-guerres en toutes lettres [French Literature Between the Wars]
AS.212.781 (01)

French literary culture between the wars (1919-1939) promoted the novel as a forum for social comment and formal experimentation alike. Questioning the psychological biases of the ‘roman d’analyse’ and reacting to the collective tragedy of the Great War, interwar writers updated the French language as well as narrative ‘technique’ in light of emergent theories (psychoanalysis, Marxism, phenomenology). Readings from Aragon, Breton, Céline, Cocteau, Colette, Dabit, Malraux, Némirovsky, Queneau, and Simenon.
