ANN: French Politics, Culture & Society (Vol. 36, Issue 2) TOC

Young Lee's picture

Dear Colleague,


The articles in this issue of French Politics, Culture & Society range from social distances and class hierarchies during the First World War to an examination of how “memory activists”—and particularly new anti-racist groups—mobilized the memory of slavery to address issues of community identity and resistance within the context of twenty-first-century republicanism. This issue concludes with a review essay and book reviews.
