France's Colonial Legacies: Memory, Identity and Narrative

Barclay F (ed.) (2013) France's Colonial Legacies: Memory, Identity and Narrative. French and Francophone Studies. Cardiff: University of Wales Press.

France's Colonial Legacies contributes to the debates taking place in France about the place of empire in the contemporary life of the nation, debates that have been underway since the 1990s and now reach across public life and society, with manifestations in the French parliament, media, and universities. Fiona Barclay brings together distinguished scholars from a wide range of disciplines, including history, sociology, politics, literature, and film, to examine the extent to which the French colonial empire and its collapse have contributed to and shaped contemporary France.
