Make A Move: Migration in French Cinema This course is designed for students across all disciplines who are interested in critically engaging with representations of immigration in contemporary French cinema. Using recent films, we will examine how these works trouble or support France’s model of universal equality for all of its citizens. Throughout the session, we will screen films that portray different aspects of immigration to France today including the act of arriving to France, living in France, and the experiences of subsequent generations. Class conversations and course materials will connect immigration to broader social and political contemporary issues. 

The department offers occasional courses on subjects of special interest to either a regular or visiting faculty member. For specific courses, please consult the class schedule.
