Women in Literature, Art and Film (FREN*3140)
Code and section: FREN*3140*01
Term: Winter 2019
Instructor: C. Thomson
This course will study French or Francophone women as creators of literary, artistic and filmic works or might take the representation of women in literature, art or film as its focus. Drawing on specific contemporary theories, we will study representations of women’s place, of the female body, class and linguistic identity, and of the creation of artistic work. Particular attention will be paid to the relationship between the personal and the socio-political spheres, sexual difference, and gender roles.
