This unit explores French and Francophone literary productions in the modern and contemporary periods. Through a focus on genres and sub-genres, students will study how authors determine, extend and disrupt categories such as fiction and non-fiction, and how they define and transform generic forms (short stories, novels, autobiographies, crime writing, diaries, graphic novels and/or artists' books) and transpose them into new cultural contexts and media. Using close studies and conceptual discussions, students develop theoretical and analytical tools and deepen their knowledge of literary productions in French from the late 18th century to the present.
