The purpose of this course is to familiarize students with movements such as Romanticism, realism, surrealism, and the NOUVEAU ROMAN to name a few. Some of these movements stem directly from the political context, when others seem to have grown almost organically. Though the course will primarily rely on literary texts, it will also examine the PASSERELLES between literature, music, and painting
Intercultural Literacy, Writing
Since this is a survey course, we will examine closely various forms of writings and reflect on our own practice of writing. Looking into "correspondances" between cultural and literary movements and the political/social context.
