Description

In the spring of 2015, Colby students from the course FR 371 "L'écriture de soi / Writing the Self," taught by Assistant Professor Audrey Brunetaux, analyzed a variety of written and visual texts to understand how French writers, artists, and filmmakers conceptualize the notion of the "self." Research projects on Alex Katz, James McNeill Whistler and Mary Cassatt, accessible in French and English below, enabled students to apply the concepts and theories from class to textual and visual material in the Colby College Museum of Art.
