Encyclopedia of Contemporary French Culture by Alexandra Hughes
Book DescriptionWith over 700 entries from an international team of contributors, this wide-ranging work crosses the traditional boundaries between disciplines in the humanities and social sciences and defines French culture in its broadest sense. Areas covered include: * economy * education * film * food and wine * gender and sexuality * society * visual arts. Entries range from shorter, factual contributions to longer overview essays, and provide an essential context for anyone studying French, as well as for readers with an interest in critical theory and those pursuing comparative studies in European culture. To assist readers with their research a classified contents list identifies relevant entries within a particular field. The articles are extensively cross-referenced to provide links between subjects and conclude with annotated suggestions for further reading.

Books By Author Alexandra Hughes
Postcolonial Economies, Paperback (May 2011)
This book provides a space for nascent debates about postcolonialism and its treatment of 'the economic'.
Heterographies, Hardback (December 1999)
This text is concerned with issues of sexual and gender representation, and the intersections of sexual difference and life-writing. Alex Hughes discusses such figures as Jean-Paul Sartre, Herve guibert, Marguerite Duras, Andre Gide, Marie Cardinal, Simone de Beauvoir, and Serge Dubrovsky.
Gay Signatures, Paperback (April 1998)
Responds to the explosion of gay and lesbian creativity on modern-day France. This book seeks to open up 'homotextualities,' understood as constructions and deconstructions of both homosexuality and its environments. It provides an assessment of this approach when dealing with a tradition notoriously discreet about the concept of a gay writer.
French Erotic Fiction, Paperback (March 1996)» View all books by Alexandra Hughes
A study which explores love and sexuality depicted in the works of six French women writers: Rachilde, Colette, Leduc, Wittig, Cixous and Duras. Feminist critics have argued that the motifs of erotic fiction had been governed by the unconscious prejudices of a patriarchal order.
