This course will examine the enduring presence of food in French culture throughout history and the important role it played in shaping national identity. We will examine the relationship between food and culture, food and history, in a variety of fiction and culinary texts, as well as in contemporary French films. Along the way we will consider food as a national symbol, as a marker of social hierarchy and regional identities, as a persistent political, social and cultural tool, and finally as a part of migration and multicultural identities. With its emphasis on developing language skills through class discussions and interactive presentations, this course takes students from the intermediate to an advanced level. . Prerequisite: French Intermediate 2 or equivalent.
Course Open to: Degree Students
