FREN-439 Tradition and Modernity in Francophone Africa
This course will explore the issues that confront Francophone Africa in its transformation from tradition to modernity. This theme and the problems surrounding it will be studied through magazine and newspaper articles, critical theory, literary texts (novels, drama and poetry), films, and even songs. However, literature will remain our predominant tool for examining these issues. Cross-listed with African Studies and Comparative Literature. This course fulfills the upper-division post-1800 literature requirement for the French major.
