          Arts                                              

          Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  Prerequisite:
          FREN 330 or Permission of Instructor. This
          course  will examine  prominent aspects of
          French  Modernism  in  literature  and the
          arts   in  the  first  half  of  the  20th
          century,  beginning  with La  Belle Epoque
          (1900-1912)    and   ending   during   the
          immediate  post-war years (1945-1952). The
          literary    examples    of    French   and
          Francophone   modernism   to   be  studied
          include  works by Marcel  Proust and Andre
          Gide,  surrealist poetry  and theater, the
          Negritude movement, and the existentialist
          writings  of  Jean-Paul Sartre  and Albert
          Camus.  In  the arts, we  will look at the
          foundational  works of modern  art by Paul
          Cezanne  and  Pablo  Picasso,  cubist  and
          surrealist  painting emanating from Paris,
          and  the  early Parisian  contributions to
          abstract art.

          La guerre des langues                             

          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD
          GEP:N/A.  GFR:Meets L.  Prerequisite: FREN
          310  or permission of  instructor. A study
          of  the  ways  in  which  language contact
          becomes  language  conflict  and  how such
          situations are resulting in language death
          on  a scale unknown  in the past. Examples
          will be drawn from Francophone Africa, the
          Caribbean,   as   well  as  France;  North
          American  situations will  receive special
          attention.  The course will  also focus on
          improving   the   accuracy   of  students'
          written French.

FREN 610  Studies in French Language and Linguistics              3 credits
          La guerre des langues                             

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD Colonialism and
          globalization  have  led  to  the dramatic
          current situation in which as many as half
          of    the   world's   languages   may   be
          disappearing.    Focus    will    be   the
          ideological   and   cultural  contexts  of
          language  loss  in the  Francophone world.
          Topics    include    the   pragmatics   of
          bilingualism,  Bourdieu and the ecology of
          speaking,  diglossia  and  language shift,
          and  the  role  of  literacy  in  language
          maintenance.  In  some  sessions  graduate
          students   will   meet   separately   from
          undergraduates.
