Spring 2009
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: FGSS 260

While women in France were not welcomed in the literary sphere, they have nonetheless participated in the various movements that have radically affected literature from the 17th century on. The purpose of this course is to discuss women's space within the literary field. Through the study of various texts, this course will examine women's compliance and defiance toward literary trends. It will also investigate the roles of literary categories (letters, plays, fairy tales, poems, novels and essays) in women's production.

Essential Capabilities: Intercultural Literacy, Writing
Students will interpret, speak and write about texts written in French by women. They will analyze the place of women in different literary genres and across several centuries.
