Course Description

In this course we will investigate the performance of identity and gender in a wide variety of texts, from Romanticism, to Art for Arts Sake, Realism, Naturalism and Decadence. Works will be read in the historical and cultural context of the many social and political upheavals of nineteenth-century France, and we will examine these novels, plays and prose poems through the filters of nineteenth- and twentieth-century theories of self/other, masculine/feminine, nature/society and class. The class will be conducted in English.
