FRNC3101: Practical Approaches to French 2

French is spoken in a variety of countries across the planet. Drawing upon case studies from a range of French-speaking countries, we will explore key issues of language usage, such as official vs. minority languages, language policy, multilingualism and diglossia, questions of language and identity, colonialism, and the broader workings of power and politics in language.
