FRN 422 - Popular Literature & Culture in the Francophone World

1 course unit
In this course we will read current best-selling novels in France or another Francophone country (focus will alternate with each rotation of the course), exploring the cultural, historical and sociological issues manifested in each author’s perception of his or her society.  Where available, we will compare the film adaptations of these novels with the written form, analyzing the implications of the cinematic choices made by the directors.  Individual research and theoretical discussions will help students arrive at a deeper understanding of the cultural practices and perspectives of modern French or Francophone societies.  Taught in French.
Prerequisite(s): FRN 301 Communication & Cultural Understanding  and FRN 304, 306 Approaches to Textual Analysis
