This chapter evaluates the capacity of French Studies to evolve in the near future. It considers the challenges for student and staff recruitment and curriculum development, as French loses its traditional preponderance within modern foreign languages in British education. It asks whether the discipline's diversity is threatened by larger processes of change, or enables UK departments to deal with those processes more effectively. It calls on university departments to take the French-speaking world and defamiliarise it, designing and delivering curricula that can inspire through the unexpected.

Keywords:   French Studies, French language, modern foreign languages, British education, UK
