Topics in French Culture - FRN373

This unit explores representations of contemporary social issues in mainland France. By focusing on education as an embodiment of the French republican ideal, the unit interrogates notions of social determinism, “Frenchness” and universal values. Through the close reading of a wide-ranging body of works (print, electronic and audio-visual texts), the unit gives students an opportunity to consolidate their language and cultural competencies, to enhance their critical understanding of textual analysis, and to reflect on representations of the individual-collective nexus in contemporary French society.
