Instructor: Adeline Soldin
Course Description:
Cross-listed with WGSS 301-02. What is an identity? Is it something innate one is born with or is it something learned and acquired with time? Are identities fixed or fluid? How does one communicate identity through behavior, speech, and media? How does one read or perceive others identities? What influence does class, gender, sexuality, race and other qualities have on identity and performance in 19th & 20th-century France? These are the types of questions students will explore in this class through the study of 19th and 20th-century French novels, plays, and film. Drawing on performance theory, identity studies, and womens, gender, and queer studies, we will examine different notions of identity, performance, and performative identity.
