FRENCH 103 is a course for students with some prior language study in French, and covers the same material presented in FRENCH 101 and 102. Entrance into the course is by recommendation of the placement exam or with the permission of the coordinator. (Information on the placement exam is available online at www.lsa.umich.edu/rll/langinstruct/placementtest.html.) Because students placed in FRENCH 103 are already familiar with some of the material, the course moves at a rapid pace. Students will need to plan on spending at least 8 to 10 hours each week preparing for daily lessons. Tests and quizzes (with both aural and written components) will be administered to check students' assimilation of the material covered in class. There will be hourly exams, quizzes, a final exam, writing assignments, and speaking tests.

By the end of the course, students will have a good working vocabulary and strong listening comprehension skills; they should be able to express themselves in French(both in writing and orally) using most of the basic structural patterns in the language. Students will also have a general knowledge of some French-speaking cultures. Technology (multi-media, the web) will be used to aid in developing writing, reading, and listening skills as well as cultural competency. Since active participation is essential to the development of strong communicative skills, regular attendance is required and participation will be included in the final grade.

Enforced Prerequisites: Students with any prior study of French must take the Placement Test. Only the placement score and not language coursework completed at a previous school will determine placement; RCLANG 150.

In FRENCH 232, we will use literature, magazine articles, movies, videos, and songs to explore the history of France and several other Francophone countries from the 1940's until the present. We will begin by studying life in France during the Second World War. Then, through some videos and the literature of several other Francophone cultures, we will examine the effects of colonization and decolonization on language use, culture, and identity. The last part of the course will focus on the politics and social climate in modern French society. Throughout the course of the term, students will be expected to review and learn various grammatical elements and vocabulary in order to participate in classroom activities and discussions. Linguistically, we will focus on supporting opinions, making comparisons, hypothesizing, and composing more and more sophisticated sentences.

Classes meet four times per week. Since communicative skills are emphasized, daily, regular attendance and active participation are essential and will be included in the final grade. There will be several short writing assignments, one composition, two tests, and a final examination.

FRENCH 362 — Quebec and French Canadian Studies
Section 001, REC
Je me souviens

Instructor: Hayes,Jarrod L; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 3

After French-speaking Canada was conquered by England in 1763, former French subjects became subjects of the British throne. In spite of Anglo-Canadian efforts to assimilate their French-speaking compatriots (or the exodus that the British forced on Acadians), Québec and other French-speaking regions have maintained an identity and culture distinguished from those who, in time, became the majority. Likewise, Québécois identity has distinguished itself just as strongly from European French culture. Yet in spite of an armed rebellion in the 1830s, the Silent Revolution, the 'terrorist' acts of the FLQ (Front de Libération du Québec), and two referenda on the separation of Québec (both of which narrowly failed to pass), Québec remains a nation within a nation with a strong sense of national identity yet without a sovereign state

In this course, we shall read Québécois literary and other cultural texts as articulations of Québécois national identity. We shall consider these texts in their historical and political contexts. Special attention will be devoted to the writing of history through literary forms (particularly in the form of combat literature), the role of the Catholic church (which had a monopoly on the Québécois school system until the 1960s) as a stronghold of the French language and Québécois culture, the unorthodox ways catholic-ness is lived on a day-to-day basis, and the importance of sexuality (in particular, non-normative sexualities) in Québécois identity (often in contradictory cohabitation with the religious aspects of national culture). We shall also examine the specific forms Québécois feminism has taken, the role of intellectuals in public culture, and the implications of incorporating joual, or the popular Québécois dialect, into literary texts.

Requirements: There will be short papers on the readings, a take-home midterm, and a final paper based on a Québécois film of the student's choice in conjunction with the readings of the academic term.

Required Texts:

RJean Hamelin and Jean Provencher, Brève histoire du Québec
Anne Hébert, Kamouraska
Louis Caron, Le canard de bois
Louis Hémon, Maria Chapdelaine
Roch Carrier, La guerre, yes,sir!
Hubert Aquin, Prochain épisode
Michel Tremblay, Damnée Manon, Sacrée Sandra

In this course we will study the various crusading movements of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries from the perspectives of French, Muslim, and Jewish historians; through literary texts written in France; and through modern histories of the crusades. We'll also look at a couple of recent films and other kinds of representations of the crusades to try to understand how, particularly in the wake of September 11, medieval crusades have come to stand as a modern emblem of Christian-Muslim conflict. Class discussion and readings mostly in French; some reading assignments in English. Course requirements include consistent class participation, a series of short reaction papers, and a research project to be carried out over the course of the semester and whose final form (paper? film? performance? website?) will be defined by the student.

Class conducted primarily in French. Suspicious lovers imagine scenarios, scrutinize character, and "create" scenes. Reading the literature of jealousy encourage examining motives and second-guessing intent in a way that parallels the suspicions that a jealous lover feels endlessly compelled to entertain.

FRENCH 368 — Enlightenment, Revolution, and Romanticism
Section 001, REC
Enlightenment, Revolution, and Romanticism: Voyages in Space, Society, and Time

Instructor: Paulson,William R; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 3
Reqs: HU

This course will explore the literature and culture of a crucial century and a half (roughly 1715 to 1851) in which France occupied the center stage of world history while its modern society and institutions came into being. Inspired by voyages to distant lands and contacts with unfamiliar cultures, writers of the Enlightenment produced a witty and disrespectful literature that criticized the customs and social structures of monarchic France and its powerful Church. Novelists satirized outmoded traditions and described a society of rapidly shifting values, in which the quest for personal happiness was both a liberating ideal and a disturbing new reality. This literature of ideas contributed — though how, and how much, is still a matter of debate — to the French Revolution of 1789, an epochal event in the creation of the modern world. Its repercussions led succeeding generations in France to be preoccupied with history, time, loss, change, self, and art — leading themes of what came to be known as romantic literature. Readings of short prose works by Voltaire, Madame de Graffigny, Diderot, Rousseau, Madame de Duras, and Nerval; Stendhal's classic novel La Chartreuse de Parme; and brief selections from poets and historians of the revolutionary and romantic eras. Three short papers and one oral examination.

Grading will be based on class participation (25%), the three papers (20% each), and the oral examination (15%). Individual student conferences during the first part of the semester will include a short, practice version of the oral examination, so that it is not an unfamiliar exercise. The oral examination will be scheduled at the end of the semester and/or during the final examination period, with enough individual choice in appointment times to avoid conflicts and exam overload.

Enforced Prerequisites: Two courses in FRENCH numbered 250-299; or FRENCH 235 and two RCLANG 320 (RCCORE 320); or FRENCH 235, one course in FRENCH numbered 250-299 and one RCLANG 320 (RCCORE 320).

Section 001, REC

Instructor: Criso,Rachael A; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 3

Credit Exclusions: No credit granted to those who have completed or are enrolled in FRENCH 414.

Having attained a solid base in comprehension and communication strategies in French, students will have the opportunity to enhance their linguistic skills while learning about one of the most dynamic aspects of French culture: the Francophone Business world.

Class participants will be exposed to the differences between business situations in France and those in the U.S.; and they will learn to function comfortably within the cultural and linguistic register of the Francophone business domain.

We will study the basic elements of French and Francophone commerce, industry, and international trade, as well as the more practical skills of telephone conversations, letter writing, interview techniques, and general cultural interface in a business setting.

Typical examples of French companies will be studied and presented by students, using the Internet as their research source for the most up-to-date information. Videos, television excerpts, and newspaper articles will complement our text Carte de Visite, which itself includes video, audio, and supplementary conversation materials. We will use the grammar explanation and exercise books Grammaire by Hachette to continue improving linguistic skills.

Grades will be determined by writing assignments, class presentations, Midterm, Final, grammar work, and class participation.

This course will be conducted entirely in French.

Enforced Prerequisites: [FRENCH 250 through 299; (1 course)] or [FRENCH 235 AND RCCORE 320 (RCLANG 320); (2 courses)] or study abroad equivalent.

FRENCH 381 — French Internship
Section 001, LEC

Instructor: Criso,Rachael A; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 3
Other: Expr

The aim of this course is to spend between six to ten weeks during the Summer working abroad in a French-speaking country. Students will gain valuable hands-on experience in a true work environment, improving all aspects of their French language skills, as well as benefiting from the experience of living within another culture.

Timeframe: the student and instructor begin working on placement during the Winter Term. This involves detailed searching by students, completion of curriculum vitae in French, and letter writing. Once a position is secured, the student begins liaising with his/her contact in the sponsoring company. Also during the Winter term, students attend several tutorials related to living and working in a French-speaking country. During the Summer, students travel to their companies and work for the agreed-on amount of time. They maintain close contact with the professor of FRENCH 381 with weekly reports via email, and also keep a regular journal in French. The instructor will fulfill a mentoring role, as well as monitoring each student in terms of their progress and success in their position. Once the Internship is completed, the student enrolls in FRENCH 381 for the Fall term. During this academic term, the student is required to write a 20-page paper in French relating their areas of learning while abroad, concentrating particularly on enhanced language skills, acquired job skills, and elements of cultural awareness. Students are also required to prepare a 10-15 minute presentation of their experience in French, which will be performed for prospective internship students and faculty members. Most internships are unpaid. Some travel funding is available.

Requirements: FRENCH 380. Desirable, but not required: FRENCH 414. Students will be assessed on their readiness and ability to live and work in a foreign environment. Interested students should contact the instructor to discuss eligibility.

No texts required.
