Alterity, during the European Renaissance, is born out of ruptures, reforms, “discoveries,” or gender relations. FR116 problematizes the ensuing intolerance in the encounter with “new worlds,” the Reformation, the anti-medieval renewal, and gender. See Calvin, Dentière, Labé, Navarre, Rabelais, Ronsard, Du Bellay, Montaigne, religious pamphlets, travel documents, and films. Taught in French.
