Primary Instructor:

This course will offer an introduction to the methods of Romance Studies as well as an exploration of potential topics for which crossing boundaries between languages might provide productive avenues of inquiry. Such topics could include the pan-Romance Caribbean, pre- and early-modern studies, Mediterranean studies, and/or comparative fascisms. Guest visits by department faculty working on such topics will provide concrete examples of comparative Romance studies. A major component of the senior seminar would be individual research projects tailored to each student’s linguistic competences. This seminar will thus offer an introduction to the research methods students will use to complete their projects. For students opting to write an honors thesis in RLL, the senior seminar would constitute their fall semester of work on the thesis.

Course Requirements:

Participation, short writing assignments, and a term paper involving research on two or more Romance languages, literatures, and/or cultures.

Intended Audience:

All RLL concentrators.

Class Format:

3 hrs/week
