UK Perspectives on Francophone Canada

Nottingham French Studies Volume 55, Issue 2

Edited by Rosemary Anne Chapman

This volume reflects on the disciplinary scope of UK-based research in the field of Francophone Canadian Studies as well as highlighting the interdisciplinary nature of much of this research. While many of the contributions focus on contemporary issues and contemporary culture, there is also an awareness of the historical development of francophone culture in Canada and the distinctive demographic, political and linguistic factors which continue to shape it.

About the Author

Rosemary Anne Chapman is Professor of Francophone Canadian Studies at the University of Nottingham. Her recent work has focused on the various ways in which linguistic difference and cultural difference are experienced and represented in the literary and cultural production of Francophone Canadian writers. Professor Chapman's earlier research studied proletarian literature and culture in France. In her most recent monograph, What is Québécois Literature? Reflections on the Literary History of Francophone Writing in Canada (2013), she explores various ways in which the literary history of twentieth-century Canadian literature in French has been constructed and mediated. Other recent publications include Between Languages and Cultures: Colonial and Postcolonial Readings of Gabrielle Roy (2009).
