Intro Francophone World
Introduction to the Francophone World

The course provides an introduction to Francophone culture and literature, while strengthening students’ knowledge of French grammar and improving their writing skills. Given that it would be impossible to study all the countries that have been under French influence, we have made a preliminary selection of countries in order to have an overview of the situation. Key words will guide our journey through the Francophone world: colonization, language, identity, colonialism, intercultural relations. The relation between the Francophone countries and France today is the result of a historical process that marked the French as well as the indigenous people. It is therefore necessary to study certain aspects of the history to better understand and grasp the concept "Francophonie", a term that is difficult to define, ambiguous, complex but rich in meanings. The study of literary works, films and other documents will help student to better understand the differences and similarities that exist in the Francophone world. Finally, students will be able to assess the role played by the French language in the quest for national and personal identity. This class will demand a lot of reading and there will be group discussions daily. The student must come to the class prepared in order to be able to participate actively in the group discussions.

Priority will be given to two main skills, reading comprehension and writing.

Regions of France
The Regions of France: History, Folklore and Culture

France is a patchwork of many regions, each boasting its own identity through its history, culture and dialect. Each week, this course will explore one specific French region—such as Brittany, Burgundy or Provence—from a variety of angles: its landscapes, folklore and legends; culinary traditions (the notion of terroir); and the way the region is portrayed through literature and cinema.
Examples of the latter include Germinal, in which Emile Zola captures the language and way of life of coal miners in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais; Colette’s memories of Burgundy and Georges Sand’s legends of her native Berry; and Marcel Pagnol’s Marius and Manon des Sources, in which the playwright highlights the social rituals, comic stances and devious plots of his Provençal characters. The class will read and analyze excerpts of these novels and plays, and will screen and discuss feature films relevant to each region.

Theater and Language
This course aims at developing ease and fluidity of oral communication in French. With the support of contemporary Francophone plays, students will discover the diversity of French languages by working on pronunciation, quality of their voice, gesture, breathing.
The course will be articulated in a dynamic, participative and creative way around three axes:
1) Dramaturgical approach of the plays: reading, discussion, analysis;
2) Exercises stemming from theatrical pedagogy to improve the qualities of articulation, pronunciation, memorization, verbal ease and public speaking;
3) Staging extracts of the studied plays for a public presentation, which will close the course.
This year, we’ll be exploring the theme of Afropean (African-European) identity, through a series of short plays by two major writers from the African continent living and working in France.

Young People and Politics
Young People and Politics in France and Beyond

Transformations in the relationships between young people and politics are obvious in all Western democracies. Engagement in traditional political institutions has declined in recent decades, leading to what some have seen as a crisis in citizenship. What are the most characteristic transformations towards politics and how could we explain them? What is so special about young people’s politics in all established democracies?
The course will explore the different aspects of politicization: level of interest, involvement, voting, political participation, partisan affiliation, political choices, and also demonstrations and protest. It will study the emergence of a new model of citizenship within the young generations compared to their elders. Social and political cleavages which exist don’t have the same impact on all categories. There is a clear division between young people with and without educational background and qualifications and their political choices are not the same.
More broadly, this course will give many clues to better understand politics in France and the French society today, working with news, surveys, and a wide diversity of research and knowledge from the social sciences. More specifically this year it will be the occasion to comment and to study the 2017 French Presidential Election.
