Elm Bank, 1999 - Foreign Language Study - 248 pages
The identification and development of 'Francophone Voices' as valid linguistic and literary aesthetics have led to the discovery of new motifs in French Studies. Rather than sermonise, these voices engage in various forms to mirror the collective consciousness, to provoke and challenge French colonial legacy, and to bring about change through representation and recognition.
This book is a window on the expansive dynamics of a new movement; one that reflects the cultural production of the Francophones who seek their natural place within the dialectics of the wider field of French Studies. The diverse perspectives and the various approaches of the analyses are both rewarding and unequivocally coherent.
