Description

This course is a linguistic survey of the French language as it is spoken throughout the francophone world, with special attention to varieties spoken outside of Europe. We will begin with the history of the French language, examining both historical events that affected the language and changes to the language itself. We will then explore the contemporary language as it is spoken in francophone communities around the world. While linguistic (geographical and social) variation will be treated, we will focus on sociolinguistic issues of each region, such as bilingualism and language contact. We will end the course with a discussion of how the language continues to evolve and how education and policy will shape its future.

Class Format:

Tuesdays will be synchronous online days, prioritizing student-centered activities and group work, and Thursdays will be in-person days, implementing instructor-centered activities and assessments.
