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.

Representing the Holocaust
AS.211.333 (01)

How has the Holocaust been represented in literature and film? Are there special challenges posed by genocide to the traditions of visual and literary representation? Where does the Holocaust fit in to the array of concerns that the visual arts and literature express? And where do art and literature fit in to the commemoration of communal tragedy and the working through of individual trauma entailed by thinking about and representing the Holocaust? These questions will guide our consideration of a range of texts — nonfiction, novels, poetry — in Yiddish, German, English, French and other languages (including works by Primo Levi and Isaac Bashevis Singer), as well as films from French documentaries to Hollywood blockbusters (including films by Alain Resnais, Claude Lanzmann, and Steven Spielberg). All readings in English.

Utopias, Dystopias, and Humanism

The Black Plague (1347-1352) and the intensification of interest in Classical antiquity stimulated Italians and other Europeans to imagine a better society in the earthly world.

Topics in French Cinema: Masculin féminin
AS.212.346 (01)

What does it mean to be a man or a woman? How has the way that we imagine masculinity and femininity changed over time?

This course proposes to enhance students’ verbal (pronunciation, intonation, syntax, vocabulary) and nonverbal skills (body language, vocal projection, spatial awareness) by performing excerpts from French and Francophone plays ranging from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. A closer analysis of these excerpts will lead us to consider how theater uses the physicality and immediacy of human experience to create a more universal form of connectivity with the world.

Caribbean Fiction: Race, History, & Exoticism
AS.211.616 (01)

The Caribbean is often described as enigmatic, uncommon and supernatural. While foreigners assume that the Caribbean is exotic, this course will explore this assumption from a Caribbean perspective. We will examine the links between Caribbean and Old World imagination, the relationship between exoticism and Caribbean notions of superstition, and the way in which the Caribbean fictional universe derives from a variety of cultural myths. The course will be taught in English and all required texts are in English and English translations from French. A weekly session in French will be held for undergraduates wishing to count the course towards the French major and for interested graduate students. Open to all grad students and to undergraduates with permission of the instructor."

Crime scenes: space and murder in French detective fiction
AS.212.338 (02)

From dark alleyways and cul-de-sacs to deserted country roads, wastelands and high prison walls, locales in crime fiction are never a mere backdrop. Representations of violence take on a spatial character that readers can understand though the lens of historical, political, ideological, and social tensions. How can this situated quality of violence reflect hidden traumas of the past as well as anxieties about the future? This course invites you to investigate various crimes scenes in French crime fiction novels, short stories, and films from mid-19th century to the present. Texts by Poe, Balzac, Malet, Camus, Sue, Japrisot, and Vargas; films by Corneau, Clouzot, Jeunet, and Audiard. Don't forget to bring your magnifying glass and spy gloves to class! Course taught in English; students wishing to count the course towards the French minor or major should also register for the 1-credit discussion section (AS.212.3XX.02).

French Identities: Race, Gender, Religion, and Sexual Preference in Contemporary France
AS.212.361 (01)

How should a just society come to terms with persistent inequalities? France, the country of liberty, equality and fraternity, that offered sanctuary from US racism to such figures as James Baldwin, Richard Wright, and Miles Davis and legalized same-sex marriages two years before the US did, is now deeply divided. This course explores the tensions and contradictions between the universalist and color-blind ideals of the French republic and the realities of discrimination in contemporary French society. Topics studied include the status of the concept of race in political discourse; the law forbidding signs of religious belief in the public schools and responses to it; and how American initiatives like Black Lives Matter, #metoo and critical gender studies have both sparked French activism and political movements and generated a powerful backlash. Conducted in English. Students interested in taking an optional additional discussion section in French should take section 2.

Pandemic and Vaccination as Cultural Watershed in the Ancien Régime
AS.212.440 (01)

What is a plague? What does it mean to protect your society from such diseases? This was a fraught, even violently debated political, social and moral, more than a medical question in the French Enlightenment, and it marked the literate culture of the Age of Enlightenment. Early on, pandemics and vaccination were understood in radically different ways in England (especially by the Princess of Wales) and in France, still dominated by a view of plagues as divine punishment. In Enlightenment literature, both fiction and nonfiction, the disease is secondary to the experience of the conscious sufferer, or to its sociopolitical consequences. We will approach these issues first via a quick overview of explanations of the plague, then discuss the 18th-century smallpox vaccination debates (one of Princess Caroline’s letters, Voltaire on vaccination in two of his Lettres anglaises, extracts of Rousseau’s novel La Nouvelle Héloïse). We will then consider the hugely influential mid-century debate space within the magisterial Encyclopédie of Diderot and d’Alembert. Finally, we will pass to late-18th-century texts that inflect culturally, politically and socially the consequences and metaphors of pandemics on the cusp of the Revolution. Texts to be read include Laclos’ Liaisons dangereuses and a short essay by Guillotin (the inventor of the guillotine) on the citizen’s experience of illness and contagion in a post-aristocratic, Revolutionary state. This will be a writing-intensive course, focused on close readings of texts in 2 explications de texte (written close analyses of a selected passage). The second paper may be a more extensive study, still based on textual analysis, but which may address a historical context or set of texts that particularly interest the student. This course will be taught in French.

The Sounds of French
AS.210.309 (01)

This course introduces students to the sound system of French: its development over centuries, its standardized Parisian form versus regional and international dialects and accents, and the popularity of "word games" (abbreviations, acronyms, and verlan). The course will include extensive practice in perceiving, articulating, and transcribing sounds, words, and intonation groups through viewing film clips, listening to songs, and completing in-class lab assignments. Recorded speech samples obtained at the beginning, middle, and end of the semester will allow students to track their progress in moving toward more native pronunciation and intonation.

Crime scenes: space and murder in French detective fiction
AS.212.338 (01)

From dark alleyways and cul-de-sacs to deserted country roads, wastelands and high prison walls, locales in crime fiction are never a mere backdrop. Representations of violence take on a spatial character that readers can understand though the lens of historical, political, ideological, and social tensions. How can this situated quality of violence reflect hidden traumas of the past as well as anxieties about the future? This course invites you to investigate various crimes scenes in French crime fiction novels, short stories, and films from mid-19th century to the present. Texts by Poe, Balzac, Malet, Camus, Sue, Japrisot, and Vargas; films by Corneau, Clouzot, Jeunet, and Audiard. Don't forget to bring your magnifying glass and spy gloves to class! Course taught in English; students wishing to count the course towards the French minor or major should also register for the 1-credit discussion section (AS.212.3XX.02).

La France Contemporaine
AS.212.353 (01)

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. Recommended Course Background: AS.210.301 or AS.210.302 or permission of instructor.

French Identities: Race, Gender, Religion, and Sexual Preference in Contemporary France
AS.212.361 (02)

How should a just society come to terms with persistent inequalities? France, the country of liberty, equality and fraternity, that offered sanctuary from US racism to such figures as James Baldwin, Richard Wright, and Miles Davis and legalized same-sex marriages two years before the US did, is now deeply divided. This course explores the tensions and contradictions between the universalist and color-blind ideals of the French republic and the realities of discrimination in contemporary French society. Topics studied include the status of the concept of race in political discourse; the law forbidding signs of religious belief in the public schools and responses to it; and how American initiatives like Black Lives Matter, #metoo and critical gender studies have both sparked French activism and political movements and generated a powerful backlash. Conducted in English with optional additional discussion section in French.

Power and Resistance in French Political Thought
AS.211.478 (01)

Today France is a multicultural, multi-ethnic society fractured by the memories of colonialism. Throughout the country's history, French thinkers – classical and contemporary – have questioned the foundations of power and focused critically not only on the claims of authority issuing from the top, but also on the compliance of the governed. What it is, they ask, that makes people stick together and recognize each other as citizens of one country? Is there such a thing as a shared history, and is Fraternité something more than a slogan? Works by La Boétie, Montaigne, Diderot, Robespierre, Tocqueville, Gobineau, Camus, Sartre, Memmi, Foucault and others.
