For a Multicultural History of France: Representations of Diversity in France from WWI to Today.

In A Different Mirror: A History of Multicultural America, historian Ronald Takaki presents a new and inclusive view of American history that establishes new networks and reconsiders certain distances between groups: “[r] ace… has been a social construction that has historically set apart racial minorities from European immigrant groups” (10). In the spirit of this book, this session wishes to contribute to a multicultural history of France by accepting papers on the literary and cinematic representations of diversity in France (including beyond the Hexagon) about the multiple groups making up the French mosaic and participating in its history, from World War I to today: (post)colonial, European, Latin American, North American or other groups. Please submit a 250-word abstract and a brief bio in French or English to Martine Wagner at: martinef@usf.edu until June 30, 2021. https://samla.memberclicks.net/callsforpapers
