French Studies I and I

FRE 107 and 108

These modules provide an introduction to the study of French culture and society, constructed as a series of questions about literature, cinema, theatre, politics,etc. (such as, How to read a film, or how to read postcolonialism). The unit introduces you to the range of sub-disciplines that make up French studies, and equips you with skills in the critical analysis of those sub-disciplines, via case studies and set texts. The unit is team-taught and uses a combination of lectures and seminars. It is assessed by means of a 90-minute written exam.
