Courses: Theory in Practice:Humanities (FRENB213001)

Fall 2010

Class Number: 1274
This seminar provides exposure to influential 20th-century French thinkers. It will examine three major currents: Postcolonial Theory; Feminist Theory; Post-Structuralist Theory. The primary goal here is to introduce students to exciting and difficult critical thought that will prove useful to their future studies and will begin to develop necessary critical skills. While the materials covered are primarily grounded in French intellectual history the course will also spend time situating these intellectual currents in broader transnational and transdisciplinary contexts. In other words, while "French" and "Francophone" centered, this course is explicitly designed to serve students in the humanities, regardless of field. This is a required course for the French major. Course taught in English and serving the humanities. (Division III)
