FREN 342 - Francophone Culture of/in the Americas

4 credits
Explores the multiple facets and layers of Francophone cultures and heritage, old and new, in the Western Hemisphere with a special focus on the presence of French in the Americas, covering Québec, Acadia, Louisiana, Haiti and creole cultures. Any student in this course is de facto a member of the Francophonie des Amériques, thus belonging to a huge community of over 33 million of French speakers. Topics may include: the origin of French in the Americas, language practices of Francophone communities, linguistic characteristics of the varieties of French, the effect of language contact on language behavior and identity issues. Connections between Francophone cultures and the Americas are analyzed through authentic materials (texts, articles, graphic novels, films, music, visuals, interviews).
