Goal: give a more complete idea of national cultures. France: litterature, fashion, art, music, etc. Culture: a way of life, expression of certain meanings and values at a given place and time i. e. punk culture = hair, fashion, music etc . How cultural movements are created and how they are interdependent. We will be using blackboard for powerpoint presentations and all handed documents. I can read all the original texts in french if i want. The final exam will mostly go over (90%) second semester material. The midterm will cover everything up until that point. Make sure to never email my work and if i ever do, to put the course code on it. French revolution: declaration of human rights, beheading the king = symbolic of refusing monarchy. 1ere r publique: ending a long history of catholic monarchy, slogan de la r publique = libert , galit , fraternit , very chaotic because it was a new system.
