Description - Francophone Studies by

This glossary offers an introduction to Francophone Studies and a route-map to further study. Designed specifically with undergraduates in mind, it contains concise and accessible explanations of the key words, events, figures and concepts in Francophone Studies since 1945. From 'Afropessimisme' and 'Brazzaville Declaration' to 'Setif Uprising' and 'Wilaya', it gives an interdisciplinary overview of Francophone Studies, and offers directions for further reading. Covering politics, popular culture, private life, cultural institutions and significant events, the entries are fully cross-referenced and assume no prior knowledge, making this an essential reference for students of Francophone Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
