4 credits
Provides a broad introduction to the rich traditions of texts written for children in French. Materials covered in class may include picture books, fables, folklore, fantasy and realistic fiction from the classics to the most innovative texts. How do these texts represent the world of adults and the world of children? What cultural norms and values do they seek to reflect, promote or challenge? In particular, how do attitudes towards gender, class and race shift through the ages and across Francophone cultures? Oral and written assignments enhance student’s creativity and sharpen analytical skills. Prerequisite: FREN 310 . CLA-Breadth/Humanities
