Description



This is a hybrid course. It is available to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The course content, delivery and assessment will be identical for both groups of students.

Subject Area: French Studies

Through the analysis of cultural events and selected written and audio-visual texts, such as popular songs, comic strips, cinematographic comedies, detective short stories, and current issues stimulating public debate in France, this course aims at furthering knowledge of contemporary French cultural practices, as well as improve language competency. Each document will be studied in a different and specific way so as to highlight its inherent qualities, strengths or weaknesses, and in turn we will be confronted to historical, semiotic and sociological analysis.
