          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD
          GEP:N/A.  GFR:Meets  L.   In  this course,
          students  will  examine  the  concepts  of
          national  identity and citizenship as they
          have  emerged  in the  French univerlistic
          tradition  from  1789  to the  present. We
          will  look for evidence of a "plurality of
          discourses"  or a new model of citizenship
          based on multiculturalism that has emerged
          in    the   late   twentieth   and   early
          twenty-first  centuries. Through a largely
          cinematic  approach, we will examine how a
          new  generation of rebellious protagonists
          who  embody this  democratic model emerges
          on  the big screen to call into question a
          French  republican  model  that  does  not
          accommodate for individual differences. We
          will  pay particular attention to how this
          new  generation of  French citizens breaks
          free  from the traditional French model of
          citizenship   based   on   integration  by
          examining  their performances  of "private
          self"  in  the  public  space.  Individual
          differences   related  to  gender,  sexual
          orientation, ethnicity, race and religious
          background  as  they emerge  in the public
          space   will  be  explored  and  analyzed.
          Films  will  be  viewed  outside  of class
          time.  Prerequisite: 12  credits in French
          courses   higher   than   302  and  senior
          standing, or permission of the instructor.

          Note   for  FREN  650.  Graduate  students
          enrolled    in   the   M.A.   program   in
          Intercultural  Communication will complete
          additional  theoretical readings  from the
          current  literature  related  to  national
          identity,  globalization  and  citizenship
          studies.    Indeed,   concepts   such   as
          "cultural capital" and "symbolic violence"
          from  MLL  603  and  the  tension  between
          "tradition  and modernity"  as exemplified
          in Hall's Beyond Culture from MLL 601 will
          be  integrated  into  course  discussions.
          Graduate students will also be required to
          complete  a  15-20 page  course paper that
          examines   one   of   these   concepts  in
          contemporary French/Francophone cinema and
          society.
