The study of selected texts representative of French and/or Francophone culture. (For students with knowledge of French; texts will be in French).
Are you interested in learning about culture in the Francophone world? This paper introduces students to a range of manifestations of French identity. An iconic poet, one of France's foremost 20th-century thinkers and a sociologist/writer (and former Minister of State, with immigrant roots) bring us their impressions of what it is to be French/Francophone in a period spanning more than half a century of tumultuous change.
