FR 235 - Postcolonial Encounters


Postcolonial encounters: What does it mean for the colonized to write in the language of the colonizer? We will try to answer that question through film screenings and the reading and discussion of novels, plays, poems and essays by 20th-century French writers such as Marguerite Duras as well as Vietnamese, African and West Indian Francophone writers. This course is part of connection 20041 (Colonial Encounters). (Previously Introduction to Modern French Literature)
