Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

A survey of literary and cultural creations from the Francophone world, this course will explore the representations of the long and complex relationship-colonial, postcolonial, of wars and migrations-between Algeria and France through diverse aesthetic works (novels, short stories, films, visual arts, poetry, graphic novels, music). With a special emphasis on questions of race, gender, exile and acculturation, as well as on the interplay between individual and collective memory, we will also focus on art, humor and creativity.  Cultural productions by Taos Amrouche, Kadar Attia, Baya, Maïssa Bey, Albert Camus, Hélène Cixous, Mohammed Dib, Tahar Djaout, Assia Djebaar, Frantz Fanon, Médine, Ernest Pignon-Ernest, Leila Sebbar, Joann Sfar, René Vautier and Kateb Yacine will be considered, among others.
