French Literature

futsubun.jpg The French Literature program is dedicated to French literary texts spanning all genres, novel, poetry, plays, philosophy, and criticism, from the medieval to the modern age. The course offers practical and creative educational activities that capture the range of rich meaning within these genres based on a broad spread of research encompassing the long traditions of literature, art, cultural and social events. Our department publishes the internationally renowned journal Gallia and hosts research conferences  twice a year. The faculty eagerly participates in exchanges with contemporary French authors, poets, and scholars, while actively promoting educational and research exchanges between France and Japan as well as providing students with opportunities for first-hand encounters with literary works in lectures and seminars.
