FREN 300 3 - The Captive and Captivity in Contemporary Francophone North African Literature


In this seminar, we explore the theme of captivity in the context of 20th and 21st century Francophone North Africa. Through close and critical readings and analysis of literary and critical texts as well as through the study of film, we will “think” captivity, and by extension, freedom and subjectivity, both epistemologically and aesthetically. Throughout this course, students will hone their critical thinking, argumentation, textual analysis, and writing skills and will continue to progress in their fluency in French. Also listed as BWS 300 3 . Prerequisite: FREN 350. (Group III)
