LLRO 13186-1: French as Booty: An Introduction to Francophone Literature and Film

This course is not currently available. Please visit the Courses section for current offerings.

Instructor: Alison Rice

This course focuses a variety of works of Francophone fiction to examine the ways in which writing the self is often a complicated enterprise when it is undertaken in the language of the colonizer; we will also question the extent to which writing the self-intersects with writing “others,” taking into account factors such as family, community, society, nation, history, religion, and tradition.
