FR 310 French Women Writers and Other Troublemakers
From bomb-throwing pétroleuses through the modern-day MeToo
#balancetonporc, women have claimed a place in the major
political and social movements in France and other French-speaking regions such as North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean,
and Quebec. In this course, we ask how the contributions of women writers, filmmakers, activists, and other “troublemakers” both disrupt and shape social norms in the French-speaking world.
Course is conducted in French
Prerequisite: French 202 or equivalent.
