The nineteenth century was a particularly exciting time for scientific development in France and major French authors read and engaged with the works of professional scientists along with texts by popularisers of science. This course will provide students with a knowledge and understanding of the impact of science on nineteenth-century French narrative. It will consider how scientific developments influenced thinking about areas such as progress and decadence, gender relations, and ideas about life and death. It will enable students to analyse the particular ways in which literature disseminates but also questions scientific ideas.
