This unit looks at literary productions in French through a global perspective, exploring key French and Francophone concepts and schools of literary theory and criticism developed from the 20th century onward, such as authorship and readership, intertextuality, inter-arts dialogues, structuralism, poststructuralism, postcolonial thought and feminist theory. Students examine literary and theoretical texts, developing analytical and critical skills. Students deepen their knowledge of modern and contemporary ways of writing and thinking literature in French across the globe, reflecting on their historical background, transnational influences and their (own) lasting impact on the world.
