FR 349 - Les Trente Glorieuses

The 1945-1975 period was marked by both material prosperity and cultural ferment. Is there a relationship between these two worlds? Particular focus on France in the 1950s. Likely readings: existentialism (Sartre, Camus), postwar poetry (Prévert, Ponge), feminine voices (Beauvoir, Sarraute, Duras, Rochefort), essays in cultural criticism (Barthes) and the nouveau roman (Robbe-Grillet)

Before enrolling in a 300-level course, students should have completed at least two of the required courses at the 200-level (FR 235, FR 236, and FR 245).  Prerequisites may be waived by the instructor for students with special preparation.
