The Alliance Française of Philadelphia is offering a 5-week, once a week, online advanced literature/sociology seminar this summer exploring the works and times of Paris gay writer and activist, Yves Navarre (1940-1994). In 1980, Navarre was awarded the prestigious Prix Goncourt for his novel, Le Jardin d'acclimatation, centering on an upper-class man imprisoned and lobotomized for being homosexual.
Conducted entirely in French, this course will examine excerpts from two of Navarre’s lesser-known novels yet still as important to the canon of contemporary French gay literature, Les Loukoums (1973), a story of gays in Paris before the AIDS crisis hit France, and Ce sont amis que vent emporte (1991), grappling with the author's personal and communal struggle with the unforeseen tragedy of HIV-AIDS in France.
As background, we will consult relevant passages of the comprehensive study, Le rose et le noir: Les homosexuels en France depuis 1968 (1996, 2008) by Frédéric Martel, as well as view archival media interviews. The course will serve as a glimpse into the gay literary community in Paris after the 1968 Revolts in France and into the horrifying reality of the AIDS plague of the 1980s and 1990s.
Alliance Française Instructor Claudia Brown will facilitate this program of study, providing scanned copies of all reading material in advance.
