French Studies in and for the Twenty-first Century

Liverpool University Press

Oxford University's French subfaculty occupies a unique position in the network of French Studies in the UK: the size of the department, the collegiate structure of the university, and certain of its very specific traditions all contribute to this singularity. But in recent years this department has, like so many others, undergone a series of necessary changes. This chapter begins with overview of these changes, which serves as a background for two proposals for French Studies: one in favour of more French theatre plays and the other for a research programme based on the ‘Quarrels’ (of which the literary, artistic, intellectual, and cultural histories of France are rife with).
