Francophone Fiction

(Re)Constructing Identities: Francophone Colonial and Postcolonial Fiction
This course will focus on major works written in French by writers from North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, and the Caribbean. We will explore the complex (re)construction of identities through fiction writing as it evolves from traditional folktale to political criticism, and as it shifts from colonial alienation to post-colonial disillusionment. We will also examine the emergence of cultural blending or m├ętissage. (FREN 0221 or by waiver) 3 hrs. lect./disc.
