Description

In this course, we will explore French-language podcasts, a medium whose popularity has exploded in recent years. While there seems to be a podcast for every subject imaginable, we will give particular attention to personal stories – what are the ethics and implications of telling one’s story via podcast? In what ways does telling one’s story in a podcast to align with or differ from other formats?

Students will study a variety of podcasts as well contextual readings and literary texts while also working to develop listening comprehension. Assessment will be based on class discussions and engagement, short writing and listening assignments, and a creative and/or reflective final project.

Intended Audience:

The course will be conducted in French.

Class Format:

For Fall 2021: During certain periods of the term, we will engage in large discussions about the course content in an in-person format; during other periods of the term, we will engage in activities where students collaborate in small-group activities via breakout sessions in Zoom. All Friday classes will take place on Zoom.
