9780253006691: Africa and France: Postcolonial Cultures, Migration, and Racism (African Expressive Cultures)

This stimulating and insightful book reveals how increased control over immigration has changed cultural and social production in theater, literature, and even museum construction. Dominic Thomas's analysis unravels the complex cultural and political realities of long-standing mobility between Africa and Europe. Thomas questions the attempt to place strict limits on what it means to be French or European and offers a sense of what must happen to bring about a renewed sense of integration and global Frenchness.

About the Author:

Dominic Thomas is Professor of Comparative Literature and French and Francophone Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Review:

"Africa and France constitutes essential reading for anyone investigating the debates surrounding contemporary French identity and the ever-changing relationship between France and her former colonial possessions." ―African Studies Bulletin



"Africa and France... is a tour de force, a thorough analysis in which Thomas examines the French empire, culture, and society as a single unit of analysis.... This book is a tremendous contribution and must-read for students of francophone studies, diaspora studies, and postcolonial studies." ―Journal of African History



"A hugely impressive piece of scholarship by a leading figure in the field of French Studies who has carved out a position over the past decade as perhaps the most authoritative voice in U.S. academia on relations between France and its former sub-Saharan African colonies." ―David Murphy, University of Stirling



"[This book's] astonishing breadth and documentation make it a worthwhile read for anyone interested in France’s colonial legacy today." ―Intl Journal of African Historical Studies



"[A]n impressive piece of scholarship... well written. Therefore, I strongly recommend it to university libraries, academic departments in the field of French studies, and scholars and students of African studies." ―Africa Today



"Africa and France is a noteworthy contribution to our current understanding of the impact of globalization on discussions of national identity and the construction of frameworks of social belonging." ―Research in African Literatures



"The work's versatility and multitudinal approach that encompasses literature, film, and museum exegesis as well as ethnographical analyses of contemporary French/Francophone societies illuminate important issues of Frenchness and national identity." ―Didier Gondola, Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis
