Primary Instructor:

The desire to escape the Old World and its Eurocentric traditions turned 20th-Century French writers into travelers. They set out from the Old Continent, and went out to explore other landscapes and cultures, discovering in the process new sources of creativity. This course will be an occasion to examine the influence of cultural encounters between the Old and the New Worlds, between metropolitan France and its colonies, on the development of literary trends and movements in the 20th century (e.g., exoticism, modernism, surrealism).

Readings will include poetry by Blaise Cendrars, Valéry Larbaud, and Aimé Césaire; travel narratives and fiction by Victor Ségalen, Antonin Artaud, André Gide, Simone de Beauvoir, and Marguerite Duras.
