Confronting the Other: Perceptions of Difference in Premodern French Literature
FREN 244
Spring 2015 not offered

While its initial incursions into the New World would prove positively anemic in comparison with its competitors from the Old, France would eventually oversee one of the most profitable empires of the colonial era. The process of geographical and political expansion would inevitably oblige France to confront the radical differences of the "others" inhabiting its periphery. In this seminar we will examine the ways in which French authors would perceive, quantify, and metabolize those differences into their own national narrative and likewise investigate how, by defining the Other, France would ultimately come to define itself.
