Fall Semester information

CJ Gomolka

316A: French Civilization

This course will be redesigned for the fall semester and retitled Power, Privilege, and Diversity in France from the Renaissance to the Liberation of Algeria. The course will be taught chronologically with each century-unit focusing on 2 or 3 major intersections of power, privilege and/or diversity. The course will be oriented specifically towards topics such as colonization, prostitution, religion, race, gender and economics. The course has also been redesigned to allow for a more conversational approach to understanding power dynamics and resistance throughout French and Francophone history.
