Module overview

The module examines selected written texts and films in the areas of travel, cultural encounter and identity. These will cover a variety of topics and cross-cultural encounters, within the broad area of Francophone film and non-fiction writing. Critical frameworks from mobility studies, postcolonial studies, cultural semiotics, and film studies will be introduced. This will allow you to explore work which makes cultural crossings, and reflects upon them, in relation to travels in Japan, the Americas, the Middle East, and travelling 'at home' in multicultural European cityspaces such as Paris.
