FREN-433 Studies in French Historiography: The Politics of Memory
This course examines new directions in French historiography through an analysis of the construction of collective and individual memories of the Republic from the Revolution to the present as well as the World War II Vichy period in France. Roughly one half of the semester will be devoted to the Republic and the remainder to the Vichy period. Consideration of the Vichy period will involve viewing a considerable number of documentary and feature films in addition to the study of assigned texts. This course fulfills the upper-division culture requirement for the French major.
