Diversity and Difference in France logo
Keynote Speakers
Dudley Andrew (Yale)
Olivier Rolin
Michel Wieviorka (CADIS, Paris)

    The myth of France as a culturally homogeneous space, long associated with the Jacobinist tradition at home and the mission civilisatrice overseas, stands in sharp contrast with the multiple forms of cultural diversity which traverse France and the wider French-speaking world. The rise of globalization and the perceived threat of Americanization have sharpened French thinking about what it is that makes France different if not indeed unique. At the same time, cultural diversity within France and other French-speaking countries is now valorized in ways that were almost unthinkable a generation ago. Speakers at this, the 21st meeting of the 20th-21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium, are invited to mark the coming of age of this major international gathering by exploring the rich dynamic of diversity and difference in France and the Francophone world.
