(AADS 3022 , FREN 3022 , WMST 3022 ) As background to the study of Afro-informed writings by African women of the French-speaking countries of Haiti, Guadeloupe, Martinique and French Guiana, the course also studies novels by women from French-speaking African countries such as Cameroon, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Algeria, and Congo, supplemented with films set in Burkina Faso and Mali that deal with women’s issues. Historical contexts, feminist movements, and women’s roles are considered in order to situate the literature. The class utilizes a book-club discussion format as well as student oral presentations, weekly essays, and a final paper. Prerequisite(s): FREN 2010  and FREN 2020  or permission of instructor and department head. (3)
