Course Description

An in-depth survey of the ways in which key historical events in the French Antilles — including slavery, revolution, emancipation, and departmentalization — have been incorporated into the fictional frameworks of regional representation. The novel form has long served to illuminate and interrogate such events. A range of novels from Guadeloupe, Martinique and Haiti will be studied for their historical, social, and cultural significance. Conducted in French. Active class participation, group discussion, one oral presentation, several short papers and a final paper.
