French Politics, Culture & Society
Volume 33, Issue 2
This special issue is titled Decolonization and Religion in the French Empire. The essays in this special issue are all contributions to French history, but at the same time they move beyond national or political frameworks. In the process, they address questions like the following: Did decolonization fundamentally alter patterns of social allegiance and encourage the forging of new ties, be they national or transnational? Conversely, has the importance of decolonization been over-emphasized? In certain domains of intellectual, cultural, and social life, did decolonization have little perceivable impact on language and practice-or even none at all? The contributors to this collection offer varied answers to these crucial questions.
