In this course, we read literary texts, mostly novels, originally written in French, Spanish, Portuguese, or Italian during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The site comes with lectures for each text (as well as an introductory and concluding lecture) in video format, uploaded to YouTube; written transcripts are also provided. There are also conversation videos (also uploaded to YouTube) with other experts in the field. In addition there are many additional resources, not the least of which are the contributions of students, who post weekly responses to the reading. All this is organized both in terms of the authors covered and via a tag cloud of major concepts.
