French Studies in and for the Twenty-first Century

Philippe Lane and Michael Worton


This book draws together a range of scholars to examine the state of French Studies in the UK, taking account of the variety of factors that have made the discipline what it is. The book looks ahead to the place of French Studies in a world that is increasingly interdisciplinary, and where student demands, new technologies and transnational education are changing the ways in which we learn, teach, research and assess.

Keywords: French Studies, UK, interdisciplinary, student demands, new technologies, transnational education
