Nouveaux Médias et Francophonie - FRNC2675

Year - 2019

With the world dominance of Facebook, is there a role for French-speaking social media? This unit examines the social media phenomenon in France and Francophonie: its cultural specificities and unique development, its place in youth and minority cultures, its impact on the French language and social and political interactions, as well as its problematic relationship with French legislation. Online communications and the 'practice' of one of the main French language social media will be an important part of the course.
