Every semester there are over a hundred courses offered with foreign language content at UNM.


Course Spotlights

Foreign Language courses are diverse and taught by some of the most dynamic faculty members at UNM! Below are a few examples of courses being offered in Fall 2021.

Introduction to China:
History, Literature and Thoughts

Chinese 343

Chin 343 | Dr. Ying Xu

In 16 weeks, we will survey modern Chinese literature and film in English translation since the beginning of the 20th century. Contending strands such as revolutionary, romantic, modernist, nativist, popular and women’s writing are represented by their most distinctive achievements. Authors of readings and screenings include Lu Xun, Shen Congwen, Xiao Hong, Wang Meng, Ru Zhijuan, Yu Hua, Gei Fei, Mo Yan and Wang Anyi. Knowledge of Chinese is not required.

 

Bollywood: Maximum Cinema, Maximum India

Bollywood Vallury

Comp 331/Engl 331/Comp 480/FDMA 330/FDMA 430 |  Prof. Raji Vallury

This course offers an introduction to contemporary Indian cinema produced in the languages of Hindi and Urdu, commonly referred to as Bollywood. Focusing on films released since 2000, we will study the influence of classical and folk forms of dance, music, and theatre on Indian cinema and its techniques of filmic storytelling. Box-office blockbusters as well as smaller gems produced for art-house circuits will allow us to analyze themes such as national identity, religion, youth culture, gender equality and social justice.

Fairy and Folk Tales

Global Fairy and Folktales

COMP 2222 | Dr. Stephen Bishop

This course will consider stories from a variety of geographical, social, religious, and literary traditions. This course is offered as a First-year Learning Community (though also open to second-year students due to last year's pandemic) and satisfies the Gen Ed Humanities requirement. 

 

French Worlds
Le monde des femmes: faits e fictions

fren-310


FREN 310 |  Dr. Marina Peters-Newell

This course will look at specific French cultural and historical contexts from the middle ages to the 19th c as a means to explore the textual worlds of a cast of French leading ladies. Beginning with the “demoiselle” (damsel who is invariably “in distress”) of the medieval courtly tradition (12 – 13th c), through Joan of Arc, the “Maid of Orléans” (15th c), the celebrated Renaissance poetess, Louise Labé (16th c), Molière’s ridiculous women in Les Précieuses ridicules (17th c), the infamous Marquise de Merteuil of Laclos’ Liaisons dangereuses (18th c), to the silent nightmare of Claire de Duras’ Ourika (19th c). This adventure will take us through questions of the status of women in France, of identity, forgery, preciosity, subterfuge, and slavery.

 

French Reading for Graduate Students

FREN-508

FREN 508 | Dr. Marina Peters-Newell
R, 4-6:30pm (in-person)

The French Graduate Reading Class will teach you how to read in French by building vocabulary, analyzing grammatical structures, using cognate clues, and teasing out that french “je ne sais quoi” that lurks within each one of us. This course is designed for graduate students who are looking to satisfy a foreign language requirement, or interested in doing research in French. It is primarily for students with little or no French language skills, although students who have had previous French courses will benefit from a focus on reading.

Schedule as of September 20, 2021

Following this class, students will be able to perform in specific situations at the Novice High to Intermediate Low level on the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) proficiency scale.
