This chapter examines the contributions of French scholars to British society. Much of the work of French scholars is centred on the domain of culture, and they have often contributed to spreading their knowledge and their enthusiasm to wider audiences. Traditionally, their main focus was on literary and intellectual life, though in the last twenty years there has been an upsurge of interest in other cultural forms, such as cinema, music and popular culture such as sport and bande dessinée. The chapter also discusses their involvement in associations and networks; British education policy; and political and social movements.

Keywords:   French scholars, British society, cinema, sport, bande dessinée, networks, education policy, culture, political movement, social movement
