FREN 365-01 America through French Eyes
Instructor: Lucile Duperron
Course Description:
From the wonders of discovery travels to the antagonisms of our present time, French thinkers have projected their hopes and fears onto the American social and political experiment. French-American long-standing relations are thus characterized by mixed sentiments of admiration and rejection that fuel the French imagination. In this course, we will chronologically and thematically examine how French writers from different backgrounds and epochs have contributed to a collective vision of America that also reflects the issues of their time. Authors include Cartier, Chateaubriand, Tocqueville, de Beauvoir, and Baudrillard among others.
