Gender and Genre in 19th- and 20th-Century Short Fiction
FREN 251
Spring 2010 not offered

This course will explore the genre of the short story in modern France through close reading of a selection of tales. The representation and playing out of gender guides the choice of texts and their analysis. A variety of approaches (feminist, thematic, psychoanalytic, cultural, narratological) will be used to shed light on the ways in which these stories construct and deconstruct ideas of gender, construct a world, and tie and untie their narrative knots.
