Global France, Global French 2015

Humanities Research Centre
Australian National University

21 - 23 October 2015

Art work by Fabienne Verdier

The goal of this colloquium is to offer an image of global France and global French, past,
present and future. How have French culture and politics been shaped by encounters with European neighbours and with the non-European world? How do contemporary migratory patterns and networks between France and the wider world compare to historical ones? How have neo-colonial practices been reshaped by globalized markets and transnational capital? How have various artforms allowed for the articulation of displacement, community and solidarity throughout French history and into the global present? In short, is the global a new horizon, or one that we are just discovering?

Confirmed keynotes:
Professor Dominic Thomas, University of California, Los Angeles
Professor Charles Forsdick, University of Liverpool
