L’animal dans la culture contemporaine

FREN 0750G S01 [CRN: 15831]

From reports of animals stranded in conflict zones and natural calamities, to cute or clever animals cast in advertisements and popular media, from the rat of Ratatouille to the orca of De rouille et d’os, the new interest in the animal marks an age of heightened awareness of the costs, ironies, or at least increasing solitude of the human story. We will consider significant representations of the animal in contemporary French and Francophone literature, film, visual art, cultural theory and media representations. We will revisit earlier moments linking the animal to modernity, including early film/photography and urban history. Taught in French. WRIT
