FRLT 052 - (LT) Sovereignty and Quebec: A Literary and Cultural Perspective
Examination of the French presence in North America, with specific focus on the
culture and literature of Quebec. The cultural and social struggle to maintain
both a French and a North American identity as seen through the analysis of Québécois
texts leads to a better understanding of the current political and cultural plight
that faces Quebec citizens as they ponder the pros and cons of sovereignty and
unity within Canada. American students come to a more discriminating sense of
their own identity as North Americans. All works are read and discussed in English.
Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes: Sophomore standing or above.
