Whether conspicuous or faint, references to America are often present in francophone films and literatures. This course will explore and analyze some of the many references to America in francophone arts (literature and film) to try to understand the complex relationship that many Francophone regions have with American culture. How does Francophone art represent America? What is represented, and to what end? What do these representations say about how different Francophone regions (France, Belgium, the Caribbean) view the United States? Are references to America a by-product of the Americanization of Francophone cultures or an innocent cultural reference?
