JEWISHST 143: Literature and Society in Africa and the Caribbean (AFRICAAM 133, AFRICAST 132, COMPLIT 133A, COMPLIT 233A, CSRE 133E, FRENCH 133)

This course explores cultural productions from the French-speaking world in the 20th and 21st centuries. We will examine foundational and contemporary works from Sub-Saharan Africa, the Maghreb, and the Caribbean while considering their engagement with the historical and political contexts in which they were produced. This course will also serve to improve students' speaking and writing skills in French while sharpening their knowledge of the linguistic and conceptual tools needed to conduct literary analysis. The diverse topics discussed will include national and cultural identity, race and class, gender and sexuality, orality and textuality, transnationalism and migration, colonialism and decolonization, history and memory, and the politics of language. Authors, filmmakers, and artists include Paulette Nardal, Aimé Césaire, Frantz Fanon, Maryse Condé, Djibril Tamsir Niane, Albert Memmi, Leila Sebbar, Dany Laferrière, Abdourahman Waberi, Fatou Kiné Diakité, Alexis Peskine, Mati Diop, and special guest, Léonora Miano. Taught in French. Students are encouraged to complete FRENLANG 124 or to successfully test above this level through the Language Center.
