Syllabus
Prerequisites: A sufficient knowledge of both oral and written French; the course is taught in French.
Target skills and knowledge: An overview of the Francophonie in a diachronic perspective, the knowledge of some literary examples, the ability to conduct a critical reflection on the themes of the course starting from the analysis of the texts.
Examination methods: Oral examination. It is possible to write a personal essay in French on a question concerning one aspect of the course.
Assessment criteria: Knowledge appropriation, the ability to analyse texts, the quality of argumentation and of personal in-depth analysis.
Course unit contents: Writing in French outside France: language, memory, identity
1. Perspectives on the Francophonie (Marika Piva)
2. The Francophonie before the Francophonie: writing in French in the Europe of Enlightenment (Jean-Louis Haquette)
3. Language, memory, identity in two francophone novels of the twentieth century: Pélagie la Charrette (1979) by Antonine Maillet and Texaco (1992) by Patrick Chamoiseau (Jean-Louis Haquette)
Starting from an introduction to the Francophonie and the different approaches to French literatures, the course will approach the question in a diachronic perspective by presenting examples dating back to the eighteenth century. A particular attention will be paid to language, memory and identity through the study of two novels of the 20th century: Pélagie the Charrette of the Acadian writer Antonine Maillet and Texaco by Patrick Chamoiseau, from Martinique. These two works, from two different francophone cultural areas, won the Prix Goncourt at their first publication. Texaco was translated into Italian in 2004.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Course in French comporting text analysis, critical perspectives, thematic studies.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Handouts will be available on Moodle, where students will also find information on critical studies.
