The French ideologies

Record type: Book Section

French Cultural Studies: An Introduction challenges received theories about France and French culture. The book takes into account the major changes which have been taking place in the context of French Studies in both secondary and higher education, 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, emphasizing recent and contemporary developments. It 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. As well as looking at the literary, artistic, and intellectual culture for which France is renowned, the authors examine audio-visual media, popular culture, and cultural policy. They follow the stages of French history through periods of industrialization and war, reconstruction and modernization, and the crises and revolutions of post-colonialism and postmodernity. Also explored are the development of interconnecting patterns and cultural forms, in addition to the ways in which culture has shaped and refected social and historical change. Copiously illustrated, and with guidance for further reading, this fascinating and authoritative work will be essential reading for anyone interested in modern and contemporary French society and its culture.
