We all have stereotypes about France and French culture: the baguette, the beret, complicated politics and wonderful food. But where do these stereotypes come from? Do they have any relevance in 2024? And what has the impact of this small and culturally rich nation been on the rest of the world? Come and learn all about the modern reality of this country we all love to love!

Topics to be explored include geography, cultural history, revolution, politics, education, language, la francophonie, immigration, BDs (bandes dessinées), leisure, the arts, media and film, and gastronomy.

Note:  Course to be taught entirely en français!

Prerequisite(s):  FREN2020/2001 or Français 30 or French Language Arts 30.
