FRENCH STUDIES. LITERATURE, CULTURE, AND POLITICS

Edited by Steven Frankel and John Ray


 

This book highlights the persistent American fascination with
the culture, language, and political history of France. The
chapters themselves are the fruit of ongoing dialogue between
faculty and students from several French Universities and Xavier
University in Cincinnati, Ohio. Most of the chapters originated as
lectures given either at Xavier University’s Paris Seminar on
Political Theory or at the Cincinnati campus to American (and,
in Paris, French) university students. While most chapters are
short introductions, essentially invitations to students to engage
in more detailed study, each section of book is anchored by
several longer essays from distinguished scholars, and in fact
readers will find contributions from several prominent French
intellectuals, including Chantal Delsol, Terence Marshall, Catherine Mayaux, Philippe Cocatre-Zilgien, and Joanna Nowicki.
Topics range from the Enlightenment, democracy and constitutionalism, to French philosophy, poetry, language, and
cinema, to colonialism, economic policy, environmental issues,
church-state relations, and European identity.

John Ray, Président du Département de Sciences politiques et codirecteur du Département des Études internationales de l’Université Xavier (Cincinnati, Ohio. états?Unis), enseigne les Sciences Politiques dans cette même université.


Steven Frankel est professeur de philosophie à l'Université Xavier (Cincinnati, Ohio. états?Unis).
