It explores French and Francophone current events and contemporary debates through texts (literature and theory), images (including films) and news-related multimedia sources. Students consolidate communicative and analytical skills with oral and written activities designed to examine some of the political/social/cultural/spatial and generational divides that define today's Francophone worlds.
