Lit in Frn: Wrtng Across Wrlds
Exploration of contemporary literary productions (from late 20th century to today) in French of non-French authors. Special focus on the literary representation of experiences of migration and exile.
This course introduces students to the writings of contemporary Haitian female authors (Edwidge Danticat, Myriam J. A. Chancy, Marie-Hilhne Laforest, Joanne Hyppolite?) who write, in English, about migratory experiences to North America (USA and Canada). Questions such as home, exile, transnational identity, language, traditions, and the female body will be examined. The analysis of the specificity of the Haitian migratory experience as depicted by these authors will culminate with a final project consisting in the interviewing of Haitian women of the Greenville area. It is hoped that through the double lens of fiction analysis and the documenting of real life experiences, students will develop a broad and involved knowledge of the migratory experiences of Haitian women.
