French Cultural Studies: An Introduction

Synopsis

French Cultural Studies: An Introduction challenges received theories about France and French culture. Taking into account the major changes which have been taking place in French Studies (with the focus shifting to a broader range of cultural forms), the Introduction adopts an interdisciplinary approach in its wide-ranging study of French culture and society since 1870, and suggests new ways of looking at France and the French-speaking world through the ideas, images, and narratives of more than a century of turbulent history and political change.
