Futures of French: Contesting Identities

“If we could today — without the burden or benefit of precedent, tradition, or institutional inertia — invent a field called ‘French and Francophone Studies,’ what would it look like?” – Laurent Dubois & Achille Mbembe

A new series highlighting the work of early career scholars, this edition of “Futures of French” will host a discussion between François Proulx (Assistant Professor, Department of French and Italian, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) and Eliza Zingesser (Assistant Professor, Department of French and Romance Philology, Columbia University).

Discussion in English.
