Family Feuds in Francophone Literature
- Lecture/Discussion: 3
Taught in French. This literature course familiarizes students with the concept of "Francophone" identity and the debates surrounding it through the textual analysis of different Francophone novels. The chosen authors and their texts cover geographical regions spanning North-Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean/Antilles/Ha´ti. The concept of the "in-between" (l'entre-deux) of two languages, two cultures and two identities, is explored through the theme of the generational and cultural gaps within immigrant families.
