Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

COURSE DETAILS:

Dans le cadre du cours d’introduction aux études littéraires, nous étudierons les principales caractéristiques du roman, du texte de théâtre, de la poésie et de l’essai. Différentes méthodes d’analyse de ces genres littéraires seront présentées et mises en pratique au cours d’ateliers. Les étudiant.e.s développeront alors la maîtrise d’une série de techniques efficaces d’analyse de la forme et du contenu des textes littéraires. Ils/elles acquerront des compétences méthodologiques au sujet des procédés lexicaux, syntaxiques, grammaticaux, stylistiques, d’énonciation et d’organisation du discours. Ensuite, nous verrons de quelle manière le tableau d’analyse permet de sélectionner et d’organiser les informations obtenues à partir d’une analyse textuelle générale afin, par la suite, de rédiger un plan efficace et une analyse littéraire claire, pertinente et concise. Des œuvres françaises, québécoises et francophones seront étudiées en fonction de leur contexte social et historique dans le but de mieux comprendre la diversité culturelle de la francophonie. Les cours seront en ligne sur Canvas : la matière générale se donnera de façon asynchrone par le biais de séries de diapositives PowerPoint avec des enregistrements sonores de la voix de la professeure. De plus, il y aura une partie synchrone entre 15h00 et 16h00 où la professeure animera des ateliers de discussion une heure par semaine.

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 SUMMER 2021

Teaching at SFU in summer 2021 will be conducted primarily through remote methods, but we will continue to have in-person experiential activities for a selection of courses.  Such course components will be clearly identified at registration, as will course components that will be “live” (synchronous) vs. at your own pace (asynchronous). Enrollment acknowledges 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. To ensure you can access all course materials, we recommend you have access to a computer with a microphone and camera, and the internet. In some cases your instructor may use Zoom or other means requiring a camera and microphone to invigilate exams. If proctoring software will be used, this will be confirmed in the first week of class.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who believe they may need class or exam accommodations, including in the current context of remote learning, are encouraged to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (caladmin@sfu.ca or 778-782-3112).
