Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures

Critical Essays

«Professor Salhi offers a collection of work on Francophone issues that is monumental in breadth and scope. The work sets the tone for Francophone Studies in the twenty-first century by offering new insights into the history and the concepts of space and geopolitics, as they relate to notions of cultural identity, language, alienation, and ideologies of Otherness throughout the Francophone world.»

Valérie Orlando, Illinois Wesleyan University

The recent rise of Francophone studies within French studies has created the need for a one-volume exploration of the range of expression in the French language following the colonial period. Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures collects discussions of literary texts and cultural identity from Europe, North Africa, the Caribbean, and South Asia—regions of the world that seem to have only the French language in common.

The recent rise of Francophone studies within French studies has created the need for a one-volume exploration of the range of expression in the French language following the colonial period. Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures collects discussions of literary texts and cultural identity from Europe, North Africa, the Caribbean, and South Asia—regions of the world that seem to have only the French language in common. Despite enormous differences among all the countries where French is spoken, Francophone literatures tend to deal with a similar spread of issues. This volume positions the study of the Francophone world and its cultures as a comparative project, in which post-colonial Francophone cultures and the specific alterity of these cultures emerge as inextricable from and essential to an understanding of modern France. Organized by region, boasting an international roster of contributors, and including summaries of selected creative and critical works and a guide to selected terms and figures, Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures is an ideal resource for scholars of French literature and advanced students looking to read beyond the French literary canon.

CHOICE

«Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures is focused and accessible to advanced students and their teachers who wish to go beyond the French literary canon and a valuable reference to any Africanist. The essays display historical depth and theoretical finesse, thus providing a starting point for the eamination of the cultural differences and commonalities that comprise the Francophone world today. In a word, this volume has the ability to trigger a dialogue between Francophone and Anglophone scholars of postcolonialism and to further Africanists understanding of Postcolonial Africa and the diaspora.»

«We teachers and scholars in "Francophonie" need books like this one that re-examine the terms, the history, and the cultures of the French-speaking world. This volume promises to be not only international, but transnational in its reach and purpose. I see this book as a great resource for the classroom.»

Marjorie Salvodon, Suffolk University

«Kamal Salhi's timely collection of essays, which is part of an excellent new series, arrives at a moment when debates on the relationship between Francophone Studies and postcolonial theory are increasingly preoccupying scholars in this area.»
