Learning outcomes

The course aims to present an introduction to the main themes connected to francophone literatures. In particular, we will approach the literature of Quebec, focusing on contemporary literary texts stories from which we can infer socio-historical changements occurred in the country and on the problem of (im)migration, integration and quête identitaire at the end of twentieth-century.
