Migration & Identity in Contemporary France
COL 227
Fall 2006 not offered

With the largest minority in France being of Maghrebian origin, Islam has become the second largest religion in France today. What are the repercussions of this phenomenon for French identity? What have French writers had to say about foreigners in the past, and how do writers born out of the second-generation of immigrants take part in the on-going dialogue surrounding French identity? This course will analyze the recent attempts at redefining French identity through a study of literary texts and films. (Readings, discussions, and papers in English).
