FRN 420 - Myth & Memory in Quebec

1 course unit
In this course students will explore the founding and development of Quebec, focusing particularly on the themes of memory and myth in the creation of Québec’s identity.  Québec’s motto, “Je me souviens” (I remember) clearly establishes this pattern of relying on memory - and the myths that evolve from those memories - in order to distinguish the Québécois cultural identity from the surrounding anglophone majority.  Students will explore political speeches, cultural artifacts, literary texts, films, and media within their historical and cultural context, arriving at an understanding of today’s culturally vibrant and diverse Québec.  Taught in French. 
Prerequisite(s): FRN 301 - Communication & Cultural Understanding  and FRN 304, 306 - Approaches to Textual Analysis  
Meets general academic requirements HU and W.
