France 1945-date (R9012)
Module details for 2011 cohort.
FHEQ Level 5
This module, which is taught and assessed in French, provides insights into significant historical and cultural developments in the second part of the 20th century in France, possibly with some reference also to the first decade of the 21st century. The precise socio-political themes, artistic movements or cultural artefacts selected for study may vary from year to year, according to the faculty delivering the tuition. However, these will typically include aspects of social, political and cultural change in the period, and the roles of selected leading public figures such as Presidents De Gaulle and Mitterrand. Aspects of cultural life will include literature (e.g. works by Vian, Barthes, Sagan), and developments in the cinema and/or theatre and/or the graphic novel or "bande dessinee". The objective is to convey a flavour of the period and to plant seeds of interest for possible self-directed study in later stages of the course, notably in the Year Abroad or final year dissertations.
