Over half of those considered French-speaking or “francophone” by the International Organization of La Francophonie hail not from Europe but from Africa. This percentage is set to increase over the next few decades as the continent experiences a demographic boom with far-reaching consequences. In this course, we will explore the work of some of Africa’s most prominent French-language writers and filmmakers. We will also consider their contributions to a globalized understanding of what it means to be a part of the Francophone world. This course is taught in French.
