This class will explore selected Francophone cultures in Europe outside of France (especially Belgium and Switzerland), North America (Canada, Louisiana), the Caribbean, North and Sub-Sahara Africa, the Pacific, and Asia. It will focus on the study of their political, historical, and sociological contexts through readings of novels, short stories and poetry and through other cultural documents such as art, photography, film, music, media, folktales, and webpages. Of particular interest will be how definitions of identity (national, regional, tribal, ethnic, familial, gender) manifest themselves.
