Description de cours

Français 2JJ3

Janvier – avril 2015

 

Thèmes pour 2015 :

Ce cours se penchera sur l’évolution du conte et de la nouvelle dans la deuxième moitié du dix-neuvième siècle; de Flaubert à Barbey d’Aurevilly. Souvent négligés parmi les nombreux genres littéraires exploités et développés pendant cette période, les contes et nouvelles adoptent de nouvelles stratégies et de nouvelles cibles. Ils diffèrent dans leurs intentions de ceux de Voltaire et des ‘philosophes’, d’avant la révolution. Mais ils n’hésitent pas à mettre en question –plus ou moins subtilement—les valeurs reçues, voire même à scandaliser un public trop complaisant. Les contes et nouvelles choisis seront étudiés sous tous leurs aspects mais surtout dans leurs rapports en tant qu’objets littéraires avec la culture, la politique, l’économie et la pensée sociale de la période.

Contenu et méthode:

a) Présentations de documents avec, quand disponibles, l’utilisation de versions cinématographiques de certains textes au programme ou de la période étudiée; discussions du contexte culturel, historique, politique, économique, et. al.,

b) Séminaires: explications de texte collectives

Please Note the Following Policies and Statements:

Academic Dishonesty

You are expected to exhibit honesty and use ethical behaviour in all aspects of the learning process. Academic credentials you earn are rooted in principles of honesty and academic integrity.

Academic dishonesty is to knowingly act or fail to act in a way that results or could result in unearned academic credit or advantage. This behaviour can result in serious consequences, e.g. the grade of zero on an assignment, loss of credit with a notation on the transcript (notation reads: "Grade of F assigned for academic dishonesty"), and/or suspension or expulsion from the university.

It is your responsibility to understand what constitutes academic dishonesty. For information on the various types of academic dishonesty please refer to the Academic Integrity Policy, located at www.mcmaster.ca/academicintegrity

The following illustrates only three forms of academic dishonesty:

  1. Plagiarism, e.g. the submission of work that is not one’s own or for which other credit has been obtained.
  2. Improper collaboration in group work.
  3. Copying or using unauthorized aids in tests and examinations.

Email correspondence policy

It is the policy of the Faculty of Humanities that all email communication sent from students to instructors (including TAs), and from students to staff, must originate from each student’s own McMaster University email account. This policy protects confidentiality and confirms the identity of the student.  Instructors will delete emails that do not originate from a McMaster email account.
