Note: This course looks at the representation of crime and criminality in fiction, newspaper reporting, and criminological texts in nineteenth-century France. Beginning with the memoirs of Vidocq, a notorious criminal-turned-policeman who inspired some of the greatest novelists of the nineteenth century, we examine the complicated interplay of fact and fiction in crime narratives from the period, culminating with independent projects where the students themselves tell the story of a nineteenth-century true crime. Works by Hugo, Balzac, Zola, Maupassant, Gaboriau, and others.

Inherent cultural and geopolitical sub-themes will be discussed as well. Regions: Europe (France; Belgium); Quebec/Canada; North and Sub-Sub-Saharan Africa; the Caribbean; and the former Indochine.
