On completion of this module students should be able to: discuss the concepts of francophone literature and of postcolonial writing in relation to the work of contemporary authors of various, multiple, or uncertain cultural affiliations, for example Caribbean, French, Canadian, or Tunisian; situate the importance of displacement and migration in relation to the contemporary (postcolonial) articulation of cultural difference and identity; analyse how contemporary prose forms in French, especially (auto-fictional) narratives, address or negotiate issues of selfhood and identity, place, displacement and belonging. They should also be able to reflect on the value of writing in the contemporary world.
