Editor Comments:

This course contributes to the course offerings in Francophone culture/literature. The specificities and intersections between oral and written or cinematographic texts continues to be an important question in African studies, and studying these questions will help our students to stretch their perceptions and definitions of what constitutes literature.

Assessment
and Goals
:

Assessment: Students will write 4-5 papers and there may be a final examination. The goal of this course is to help students understand the value and importance of texts not traditionally classified as literature. Through the study of the form, themes and styles of various tales, students will learn to see the artistic and societal value in these stories, as well as the ways in which oral traditions are undergoing transformations in modern society.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS COURSE IS A NEW OFFERING IN THE FRENCH DISCIPLINE, AND WILL BE ONE OF THE COURSES THAT STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO TAKE TO FULFILL THE NEW MAJOR REQUIREMENT TO TAKE AT LEAST ONE COURSE IN FRANCOPHONE STUDIES. THIS COURSE IS ONE OF THE NEW OFFERINGS INTENDED TO SATISFY OUR DISCIPLINE'S OBJECTIVE OF OFFERING MORE COURSES IN FRANCOPHONE CULTURE, LITERATURE, AND FILM.
