Being Contemporary

Richard J. Golsan

Liverpool University Press

‘What does ‘Vichy’ Mean Now?’, written by Richard J. Golsan, is the first essay in the section, ‘The Second World War and Vichy: Present Perspectives’, and offers an analysis of the changing signification of Vichy in the twenty-first-century imaginary. In his exploration of the Vichy period, Golsan navigates between past and present, bridging contemporary concerns and their origins. Combining a rigorous assessment of political and cultural debates, recent French laws, and new fiction, Golsan contends that the memory of Vichy has become dangerously allegorized, ‘ossified’, and ‘unmoored from historical realities.’
