3304 Introduction to the Francophone World
This course is an introduction to Francophone history, culture and literature. It is impossible to study all the countries that have been under French influence. Therefore, we have made a preliminary selection of countries and regions. Key words will guide our journey through the Francophone world: colonization, language, identity, conflict, oppression, equality, colonialism, independence, women’s rights, polygamy, intercultural relations. Through the study of historic documents, literary works, films, music and other authentic documents, the student will reach a better understanding of the richness and diversity in the Francophone world. This class will demand a lot of reading. The student must come to the class prepared and participate actively in group discussions. This course will also help students strengthen their knowledge of French grammar and improve their reading comprehension and writing skills.
