FRE 490 - Senior Seminar


Required of all senior majors in the fall semester.

Fall 2021

The focus of this seminar is the body. We will therefore be looking at numerous considerations of the body in French and Francophone works across times and geographic boundaries. When reading or watching our primary works, students will consider a variety of factors, including social, cultural, and historical circumstances at play, but also political and aesthetic ones. The political will become particularly salient in works where power structures such as the State, the Church, or patriarchy are implicated.
