FREN 3301 Boston's Francophone Connections (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

A crossroads where Americans and peoples of France and other Francophone regions have met since the seventeenth century, Boston has served as common ground, battlefield and laboratory. In today's Boston, street designs, buildings, works of art, and cultural and commercial institutions bear witness to the continuing relationship between Boston and the French-speaking world. We will explore the development of Boston's Francophone connections through an examination of newspaper articles, diaries, letters, essays, paintings, monuments, architectural works, musical compositions and historic sites.
