Course Guide - French 307: Paris Maymester 2021 -: Home

A companion research resource for French Course 307, Maymester 2021: Public Memory and the Ghosts of History


Nora_Vol_1_819oj6J-p Welcome to this Course Research Guide which aims to provide access to various resources that support the many aspects of French 307: Paris Maymester 2021, Public memory  and the Ghosts of History, which, as noted in your syllabus, explores: 

"(...) ghostly figures of the past that are left behind, or that emerge, within the cultural spaces of the French République. We will set out not so much to summon or even to search for these ghosts, but rather to develop a critical approach to historical and cultural texts that will prepare us to encounter them, first-hand (...) [and] make sense of these spectral encounters, constructing new meanings around questions of loss, trauma, and political violence." 

An essential Research Guide for you to use, together with this Guide is the French Field Examination - Research Guide, which substantially complements the information in this Guide.
