In her novel “The Shadow of Baudelaire” (1996) Fabienne Pasquet is inspired by Gustave Courbet’s painting The Studio and his representation of Baudelaire’s Haitian muse, Jeanne Duval.  The lesson begins with conversations around Courbet’s painting, a reading of Pasquet and Baudelaire, and finally the students prepare artistic and theatrical representations inspired by what they have learned in the unit.  This unit corresponds to a lesson inspired by Véronique Tadjo’s novel La Reine Pokou (2004) and the two lessons open a discussion about history, women, literature and art in society. This workshop, presented in French, will share lessons as well as interactive readings and activities.
