Francophone Literatures: An Introductory Survey

By Belinda Jack | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

Colleagues with specialist knowledge of various areas generously agreed to read drafts of a number of sections and their help has undoubtedly made this a better book than it would otherwise have been. Peter Hawkins read Part I, Bridget Jones, Part II, Alexander Hargreaves, Part III, and Christopher Rolfe, Chapter 12. Colleagues at Christ Church allowed me to rehearse arguments and articulate various problems informally. I am indebted to them, and to the College's Governing Body for providing me with equipment and funding for travel and attendance at various conferences.

The new European Humanities Research Centre in Oxford has been a very exciting base from which to work during the last year. I would like to thank the Director, Dr Ian Maclean, and the British Academy for the Post-Doctoral Fellowship which I hold at the Centre. The British Academy also provided me with the means to travel to both Quebec and the West Indies. These trips were invaluable also from the point of view of collecting material and in less tangible ways, subtly changing my understanding. Meeting with various writers, most particularly with Jean Bernabé (in Martinique) and Amin Maalouf (at the Maison Française d' Oxford), and corresponding with other writers, is also something which has made a great difference.

Heartfelt thanks go to my family and friends for continuing to take a real interest in my academic concerns, and to the younger members for encouraging me even though the nature of my activity remains somewhat mysterious. As I write, all that my children have seen is an awful lot of paper. Those who have looked after them, particularly Susie Ess, have also made this enterprise possible. I would like them to know how much I appreciate their devotion and kindness.
