This chapter considers the specific challenge posed to previous conceptions of French Studies by the field's engagement with the specific ‘transnational’ form of questioning involved in the development of postcolonial teaching and research. It explores whether the development of francophone postcolonial studies represents the demise or the rebirth of the French department. It suggests that while it is possible that French Studies engagement with the postcolonial will open up exciting research trajectories, changes in teaching and the curriculum may be harder to achieve in some institutions.

Keywords:   French Studies, postcolonial teaching, postcolonial research, francophone postcolonial studies
