FRE 4422 - France-Maghreb

Credits: 4.00
This course focuses on performative encounters between France and the Maghreb. Through the issues of colonialism and immigration, it examines how these encounters have shaped the identity of people from both sides of the
Mediterranean. We will analyze how 19th century French travelers and artists have created a muted and fictional subject that reflects the politics of colonialism and the French psyche at the time. We will also examine significant responses produced by North African artists and intellectuals. Finally, using various sources (travel accounts, literary texts, films, paintings.) and various critical tools (post-colonial, post-structural, Feminist.) the course will look at the legacies of colonialism and immigration through the analysis of multiculturalism in contemporary France.
