FRNC2100: French and Francophone Visual Cultures 1

This unit will explore how visual cultures have interacted with society in the French and Francophone worlds from 1945 until today. It will examine how key socio-political and cultural events have been represented in film and visual arts and, in turn, how they have shaped social realities since the end of the Second World War. In this unit, students will explore major concepts, theories and methods to examine and analyse French and Francophone cultures as expressed through film and visual arts.
