Hist France:Metropol to Global

Histoire de France—de l’échelle métropolitaine à l’échelle-monde / History of France—From the Metropolitan to the Global Level

(Section A - Methodology ; Section B - Civilization)

This course offers students a condensed panorama of the principal changes marking the history of France since the Age of Enlightenment. France will be studied from the perspectives of the metropolis and its external relationships and actions (colonies, migrations, exiles, etc.). Two topics receiving particular attention will be the creation of the nation-state confronted with the instability of political regimes, and social, religious, and cultural identities, from the search for unity to recognition of minorities.
