Course Description

FREN 145
The Francophone Levant and the Ottoman Empire

This course examines the history of the French presence in the Levant, a region covering in its historical sense, the eastern Mediterranean basin. The course presents the French historical, political, cultural, and emotional attachment to this region and studies the French Levantines, a minority population living at the cross roads of different cultural and linguistic influences. We will engage in discussions on diaspora, “hybrid” identities, transnationalism, multilinguism, and cross-culturalism
Offered every third year beginning 2020-21.
