Core Curriculum:

This course is designated as a Global Cultures flag: The purpose of the Global Cultures flag is for students to gain greater familiarity with cultural groups outside the United States. To that end, courses carrying the Global Cultures flag ask students to explore the practices, beliefs, and histories of at least one non-U.S. cultural group, past or present, with the goal of encouraging students to reflect on their own cultural experiences within a global context. (As stated by the Center for the Core Curriculum at UT Austin).

 

Course Description

This course will present a general overview of the political and cultural history of France from its inception to contemporary France.  Topics will include “seven important historical events,” “signs, symbols, and myths,” “linguistic, regional, social, and ethnic identities,” “the social model,” “contemporary politics,” “France and international relations.”  How do the French see themselves?  And how do other nations see the French?

 

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

1)    critically analyze cultural and identity constructs related to France.

2)    demonstrate a proficiency level of B2 in writing (Independent User) on the CEFR scale.

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_European_Framework_of_Reference_for_Languages).  For more information on the CEFR, consult this manual:  http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/images/126011-using-cefr-principles-of-good-practice.pdf

Heather Willis Allen &  Sébastien Dubreil.  Alliages culturels:  La société française en transformation.  Cengage, 2014.  (ISBN 978-133-30996-3).  This book is available at the University Coop.  A number of purchase/rental options of this book are also available at www.cengagebrain.com.  You will need an access key to access the Premium Website for this textbook, and many assignments require use of this website.  If you purchase a used textbook, the access key on your book will be expired, and you will have to purchase an access key at www.cengagebrain.com.  Enter the ISBN for the textbook, and select the tab “Related Products.”

 

Additional readings (usually news articles) will be assigned for each chapter.  The syllabus will indicate days on which you need to complete additional readings.  Links to the readings will be available on Canvas under “Assignments” (click on the assignment to read instructions in the text box).  I will wait until the weekend before the assignments are due to post assigned articles because they need to be current; therefore, I will choose readings based on what is happening in the world at the time of the assigned readings.

 

We will also discuss three films in this course.  All films are available for rental or purchase on Amazon Instant Play, and you may also rent/purchase them elsewhere.  It is your responsibility to obtain and watch these films prior to the class sessions during which we will discuss them.

 

 

Course syllabus and website:

The course syllabus will be posted on Canvas (canvas.utexas.edu).  Grades, instructions for assignments, and additional course documents will also be posted on Canvas.  Videos and Image Analysis materials are on the Premium Website that accompanies the textbook (www.cengagebrain.com).

 

Assessment and Evaluation:

 

Homework quizzes (15%):    Unannounced homework quizzes will be given frequently to verify that students have completed assigned readings and other work.  Make-up homework quizzes will not be permitted, but the lowest homework quiz will be dropped at the end of the semester.

 

Activités de synthèse/Image analysis (30%):  Short written assignments assigned throughout the semester to verify that students can critically analyze and respond to chapter content. 

 

Exams (40%):  3 in-class written exams.  These tests will stress cultural knowledge and vocabulary.  Make-up tests will not be allowed unless an official document is presented:  1) an official university excuse, 2) a medical excuse, 3) proof of an unavoidable emergency.  The professor reserves the right to determine whether or not an event constitutes an unavoidable emergency.

 

Final project (15 %):   A final paper showing how a major historical event discussed in this course has significantly influenced contemporary French society and how it may impact French society in the future based on current trends and events.

 

Late work and Make-ups:  No late-work or make-ups will be authorized for this course unless an official document is presented (see “exams.”)  Homework quizzes may not be made up under any circumstances.

 

Instructions for graded assignments:  Specific instructions on how to prepare graded assignments such as the Image Analysis will be posted on Canvas under “Assignments.”  When you click on an assignment, you will see instructions posted in a text box.

The objective of this course is to improve all four language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) through a series of communicative tasks (compositions, listening comprehension activities, dictations, oral practice, etc.). Emphasis is placed on diversifying vocabulary, mastering a wider range of grammatical structures, increasing fluency, and developing appropriate rhetorical strategies for essay writing in French. And finally, participants can expect to learn about social issues in the French-speaking world (e.g. role of media in society, immigration, globalization, education, etc.)
