Good and Evil (FREN*3030) | College of Arts

Good and Evil (FREN*3030)

Code and section: FREN*3030*01

Term: Fall 2017

Instructor: C. Thomson


In this course, we will consider a variety of texts in which the lines between good and evil are blurred, making such categorization difficult. Good and evil will be considered in different locations and in different time periods, at both the microscopic level of characters (heroes and villains) and/or at the macroscopic level (utopias and dystopias). Readings on the ethical challenges characters and societies face, and the decisions they make will be used as the basis for oral and written debates in French.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
