FREN 3475 - Autobiographical Writing
The aim of this course is two-fold: it will introduce students to the autobiographical genre, and will also help them improve their analytical and writing skills in French. We will explore the various types of particular fantasies (fantasmes) that underlie autobiographical texts. Students will also produce their own autobiographical narrations. Readings will include essays by Philippe Lejeune, Jean-Paul Sartre, Georges Pérec and Nathalie Sarraute.
