FREN 20.01 France and the Culture of Conversation

In this course we will examine the relationship between conversation and French history and culture.  We will explore the role of conversation on artistic production and examine its influence on the history of ideas. Conversation was a central tenet of early modern intellectual and textual exchanges through the Enlightenment, and the French salon  was the site in which conversation flourished.  We will then extend our analysis to the present day.  What are the forms conversation has adopted in France today, especially in digital culture?  Is there anything about this art and the way that it functions that is still uniquely French?

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
