This graduate French language and culture course examines the politics and culture of gender, sex, and sexuality in France during the twentieth century through contemporary times. The course embarks on a foundational approach to the multi-disciplinary field of “Women’s Studies” by understanding the legacy of Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex (1949) in France, and by studying a wide range of literature, art, and media. The course primarily focuses on classic and contemporary film, short literary texts, advertising and social media. By surveying French Feminist movements and theories, the course examines French language in relation to gender identity and related contemporary topics. Conducted in French. Proficiency: intermediate-high or advanced level proficiency in French is required.
