An examination of contemporary society in France and Francophone cultures as portrayed in recent documents and film.

In addition to the basic text and review of grammar, readings are chosen from newspapers, contemporary literary texts and magazines, complemented by video materials. Prerequisite: FREN 005 or 101.
