Francophone Civilizations

THIS COURSE TAUGHT AT MILLS CAMPUS

This course is designed to serve as an overall introduction to the culture and civilization of France from the Middle Ages to the present. Using an interdisciplinary approach linking literature, art and cultural history, we will study how French society has been put together over centuries to create a worldwide famous cultural situation; we will also consider what is left of these assets as expressed today by analyzing trends and issues of contemporary France through the political, social and cultural situation. The course will also study the rise of the so-called ‘Francophonie’ (French-speaking world), with the aim of understanding the processes of contacts between France and non-European cultures through the medium of a common language.
