CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

Intermediate study of issues in Quebecois Literature. Students with credit for FREN 230 may not take this course for further credit.

COURSE DETAILS:

Dans ce cours, nous questionnerons l’histoire littéraire du Québec à partir des différentes manières dont la nation a été définie dans les romans, la poésie, le théâtre, les essais et le cinéma. Tout d’abord, nous étudierons les écrits coloniaux de la Nouvelle-France. Puis, nous réfléchirons au rôle que la tradition orale a joué après la Conquête. Parmi les courants littéraires les plus importants, nous analyserons des œuvres qui font partie du romantisme, du terroir, de l’anti-terroir et de l’idéalisme. Ensuite, nous porterons un intérêt particulier aux causes et aux conséquences de la Révolution tranquille. Cette période de grands bouleversements sociaux, politiques et économiques a eu une très grande influence sur les transformations culturelles du Québec. Enfin, nous réfléchirons à la manière dont le nationalisme est redéfini après les référendums de 1980 et de 1995. L’identité québécoise est, de plus, influencée aujourd’hui par la participation à la vie culturelle de nombreux immigrants, qu’ils soient d’origine italienne, égyptienne, haïtienne, brésilienne, chilienne, chinoise, grecque, libanaise, etc.

Department Undergraduate Notes:

Code of Academic Honesty
The Department of French applies the university's policy and procedures governing matters of academic dishonesty in all French courses. Students registered in French courses are expected to respect the standards laid out in SFU's Code of Academic Honesty, published at the university website http://www.sfu.ca/policies/teaching/t10-02.htm. Evidence of any of the various forms of Academic Disonesty described in this policy document (section 3.0) will be dealt with accordingly to the specified Procedure and Penalties (section 5.0). Students should therefore read this policy document carefully.

Registrar Notes:

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html

TEACHING AT SFU IN SPRING 2022

Teaching at SFU in spring 2022 will involve primarily in-person instruction, with safety plans in place.  Some courses will still be offered through remote methods, and if so, this will be clearly identified in the schedule of classes.  You will also know at enrollment whether remote course components will be “live” (synchronous) or at your own pace (asynchronous).

Enrolling in a course acknowledges that you are able to attend in whatever format is required.  You should not enroll in a course that is in-person if you are not able to return to campus, and should be aware that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who may need class or exam accommodations, including in the context of remote learning, are advised to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (caladmin@sfu.ca or 778-782-3112) as early as possible in order to prepare for the spring 2022 term.
