Revisioning French Culture

Susan Rubin Suleiman

Liverpool University Press

Susan Rubin Suleiman’s essay explores the status of Jews as foreigners and ‘other’—as étrangers—in French law and literature of the 1920s and 30s. Her essay traces the changes in French law that occurred around Jews and foreigners, as well as the concurrent shifts in social and literary discourse. A toxic dichotomy became part of the overall discourse, ‘opposing the Jewish other as an existential threat to the French same.’ Suleiman argues that that dichotomy is applicable to other minorities, pointing to contemporary debates about Muslims in France.
