FREN 471 - 20th C Fr Writing/Hispanic Wor
The proposed course will introduce students to the complex relationship between French writers and Spanish-speaking cultures in the course of the 20th century. It will cover some of the most important political and historical events associated with these cultures, from the Spanish civil war to the Cuban revolution, seen from the perspective of French existentialism and of littérature engagée. It will also emphasize both the important role of indigenous communities in the construction of cultural identities throughout Latin America and the particular representation of these communities by modern French writers. Finally, it will stress the ongoing artistic dialogue between French writers and Hispanic painters and poets, particularly in the context of Surrealism.  Cross-listed with Comparative Literature and the Latin American Studies Program. This course fulfills the upper-division culture or post-1800 literature requirement for the French major.
