Editor Comments:

This course is an important addition to the Francophone course offerings on our campus. Issues such as globalization and immigration are increasingly important, and this course will examine the ways in which authors treat this theme in their texts.

Assessment
and Goals
:

Goals: •To increase students' awareness of the ways groups of people define themselves, and how these definitions are thought to be rather rigid. Through reading various works of literature, students will learn that boundaries between people are permeable, and that literary styles can "migrate" with their authors. •To improve students' ability to analyze complex literary texts in French, and to be able to write thoughtfully and critically about these texts. Students will write 4-5 papers in which they will demonstrate an increasingly sophisticated understanding of the themes discussed in class and in their own ability to dissect the literary qualities of the texts. There may also be a final exam, to encourage students to think about issues they did not discuss in their papers.

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 REQUIRMENT 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.
