Learning outcomes

The course aims to initiate students to an in-depth and critical study of some Francophone female writers “venues d’ailleurs”, who came from different European and non-European countries (Maghreb, Spain) or who were born in Francophone countries locked up in their literary traditions (Switzerland, Québec …) and intended to change them radically by means of a new and aggressive language. Moreover, the professor intends to provide students with all the theoretical and methodological tools for the literary and linguistic analysis of the proposed texts. The lessons will be held in French, in order to improve the students’ linguistic level as well. The courses will consist in lectures and seminars. Remedial courses will be organised as well.
