Introduction to French Culture

Course Overview

Introduction to French Culture

Provider: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Description: Ce cours est une introduction à la culture et la société françaises depuis la Révolution, mais surtout à partir du Second Empire. Nous tacherons de cerner ce qui définit la singularité francaise dans une perspective historique. Nous commencerons avec la notion "d'exception francaise" et de ce qui la constitue depuis la Révolution (La République, L'Universalisme, La Laicité, etc.) Nous explorerons l'impact de l'industrialisation, ainsi que la tension entre la France pays de la modernité dans les arts et la technologie et la France nostalgique de sa grandeur passée. Nous discuterons les moments charnières de cette tension avec les grands débats d'idées autour des impressionistes, de "Fleurs du Mal", du Paris de Haussmann, de la construction de la Tour Eiffel, des expositions universelles et coloniales. Nous analyserons la représentation littéraire et filmique des moments historiques et des crises hexagonales qui ont marqué le 20e siècle: l'Affaire Dreyfus, les deux guerres mondiales le colonialisme et la guerre d'Algérie, Mai 68. A travers des textes, des images, des articles de journaux, des films, nous tenteront de faire le lien entre cette histoire et les débats contemporrains sur l'identité Française.
