In recent decades profound socio-political and cultural changes in French and Francophone societies have acted to shape and reshape notions of citizenship, individual rights and social classifications. Within this context, are social divisions and class identifications still relevant constructs? What does it mean in actual fact to participate in the public sphere? This interdisciplinary conference aims to examine how social boundaries and hierarchies are produced, reproduced and renegotiated over time. It will explore the complex ways in which social groups, classes and identities in French and Francophone cultures are maintained and (re)configured through various modes of mobilisation and cultural representation.
Confirmed Keynote Speakers:
Catherine Wihtol de Wenden (Research Director CNRS, CERI-Sciences-Po)
François Bon (Author and Lecturer in Creative Writing, Sciences-Po)
