French 116: Intolerant Renaissance

Instructor: Jean-Claude Carron

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.
