Literature and Crisis
FREN 379
Fall 2008
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: COL 396

This seminar focuses on the following question: How do writers in 20th-century France address historical crisis in their works? We investigate the various ways in which writing deals with war and its aftermath, with immigration and women's issues, and, more recently, with the AIDS crisis. Denial, indifference, violence, and political commitment are among the possible responses.

Essential Capabilities: Intercultural Literacy, Interpretation
Students will analyze, speak, and write about literary texts in French dealing with historical crises.
