FRN 431 - Voices of Francophone Literature from French-Speaking Countries and Territories other than France

Course Units: 1
(Not Offered this Academic Year) The ways contemporary writers from former French colonies in West and North Africa and from the French-speaking Caribbean stress local, social, political, religious, and gender matters in their novels and short-stories. We also examine these writers’ particular use of the French language according to local meanings and other strategies they develop to redefine post-colonial societies. Among selected writers we have Calixthe Beyala, Mariama Ba, Assia Djebar, Rachid Minouni, Patrick Chamoiseau, and Maryse Conde. CC: HUL, LCCF, HUM
