FREN-232 French Culture and Writing II
Professors Kremers, Mostowfi, Sieg, Spielmann and Staff
This two-semester sequence incorporates advanced writing skills and an anthropological introduction to the study of culture. The first semester will focus on the analysis of key French cultural themes, including ethnocentrism and stereotypes, notions of time, space, and communication, family structures, social class, food and foodways, national symbols, and images of rural and urban life. The second semester moves from the in-depth exploration of French rural life in the first half of the twentieth century to the study of the postwar period and the impact of large-scale change occurring in both rural and urban locales. This sequence serves as a prerequisite to all upper-division courses for French majors.
Prerequisites: FREN 112 (majors) or FREN 151 (non-majors)
