FR 250 - Introduction to French Transnational Studies (4 Cr.)

(GCR Humanities and Interdisciplinary Studies area)(GCR RPP)
How can the French and Francophone world offer a useful case study for understanding transnational phenomena? This course takes a transnational approach to the study of French history and culture from Louis XIV to the Algerian War, focusing on key periods that help us understand social diversity in French and francophone societies today. Drawing on authentic texts and scholarly and artistic works (including performing and visual arts, literature, and film), students will integrate concepts and methods from the social sciences and humanities. To apply course content to a specific setting today, students will also reflect on how they might pursue further inquiry and gain professional experience in an individually-tailored internship abroad. Prerequisite: FR 130 , or FR 133  and permission of instructor. Variable semesters. Ingram, Martin.
