Aspects of national identity

  

Sociological approaches of France


  

  


SYLLABUS

The state of French opinion


Socio-political expressions of a crisis


Social ferment and perspectives

France today and her self-questioning

  

In different respects, France today may appear like a country fraught with numerous and persistent self-questioning: the impact of her role on the international stage, the dissemination of her culture, and the legitimacy of her republican model are so many causes for questions and doubts for a French society confronted furthermore by considerable socio-economic problems. We shall try to present different aspects of this collective crisis of confidence currently being experienced in France, a crisis which contrasts so markedly with the country’s objective assets.

  

  

From the country to the town: transformations of a society


Demographic and social changes

Taking account, in our analysis, of historical developments, we plan to sensitize students to a properly sociological approach to French society, open to present-day realities. An evaluation will be undertaken of aspects of social transformations which occurred during the 20th century, leading to a “scan” of contemporary France, both of its trump cards and of its weak suits as it undergoes profound transformations. A well-documented study, of course, providing students with tangible elements of a fact-based approach.
