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.

Women in French Literature of the 17th and 18th Centuries
AS.212.318 (01)

This course will examine the changes in the relationship of women to literature in France before the French Revolution from several points of view: (1) What were the social and intellectual contexts of gender distinctions?

Texts by Mme. de Sévigné, Molière, Mme. de Lafayette, Prévost, Diderot, Rousseau, Laclos, and Beaumarchais.

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.

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.

Du texte à la scène : quand le roman compose avec l’art vivant
AS.212.341 (01)

Quel lien existe-t-il entre la littérature, art du texte et des livres, que l’on découvre seul et en silence, et les arts de la scène, arts de l’instant, éphémères et publics? On cherchera ici à répondre à cette question pour saisir les transferts entre ces deux réalités. La musique, art de la composition, prendra une place prépondérante dans ce cours, mais on s’intéressera aussi à la danse, l’opéra, le cirque ou la performance. L’approche sera ici volontairement sensible, à travers un corpus de textes modernes et contemporains allant de Perec au slam, en passant par Jean Echenoz, pour tenter de comprendre "ce qu’il se passe" quand littérature et arts "vivants" se croisent.

Cultures of Love
AS.212.436 (01)

From the time of its invention in the Hispano-Arabic world, as a kind of counterfeit religion, love has been a paradoxical, transgressive phenomenon: mystical, adulterous, con game, parlor game, alienation or self-affirmation. We’ll explore a few crucial moments in its long history, from Socrates's female teacher Diotima to the reality show Love is Blind, and we'll bring a literary, sociological and anthropological approach to the challenges posed by love's protean discourse. Works by Plato, Saint Augustine, Ibn Hazm, the abbess Héloïse, Sartre, Beauvoir, Barthes, Ernaux, Houellebecq, and others. Readings and discussion in French.

French Theater: Reading and Practice
AS.212.454 (01)

Reading modern theater in French can be exciting: a battle waged with words instead of swords, a battle of wit and of style. The literature of the nineteenth century was marked by major literary battles opposing young Romantic writers against an old school of Academicians. This battle was fought largely in and through the theatre. In this course the classroom space itself becomes a stage in which to reenact or rehearse some of these battles, through careful readings of texts and by exploring all possible literary contexts. Participants will read together a number of plays as well as take part in collaborative learning and creative activities. Readings to include texts by Césaire, Dumas, Hugo, Marivaux, Musset, Scribe, Sartre, and Vigny. Readings and discussion in French.

Transitions in French Filmmaking: From the Silent Era to the Second World War
AS.212.709 (01)

In this seminar in the poetics of cultural forms, we will examine the half-century period in France (1895-1945) during which narrative film language evolved out of proto-cinema to coalesce in the multi-reel feature and the serial, then, after a brief but fecund period of experimentation in non-narrative creative modes (dada, Surrealism, Epstein’s “cinepoetry”), weathered the transition to the “talkies” (le parlant) to diverse effect. That transition to sound yielded both masterworks of poetic realism (Renoir, Duvivier) and countless literary adaptations that sought, and won, broad commercial success (Pagnol, Guitry). Rather than prejudge the esthetic and ideological interest of those works of the 1930s which film historians tend to associate with France’s cinematic maturity, we will attend to the fissures through which the seventh art continues to disclose nostalgia for its (not so) silent past, and to the conservatism that the sound feature imposed on filmic expression. Conversely, looking backwards, we will pay heed to the ways silent film in the 1910s and 1920s itself superseded, through targeted appeals to the sensorial imaginary, its medium-specific limits. Taught in English; readings in English and French (reading knowledge strongly recommended).
