This collection brings together methods and insights taken from literary criticism, cultural studies, philosophy, theory, film studies, and linguistics to define new parameters of study for the emerging field of francophone postcolonial studies. While francophone writings share some characteristics indicative of postcolonial literatures in general, they also have their own unique set of characteristics, including issues of migration, stereotyping, continued relationships with France, and creolization. This book gathers together some of the best-known francophone literary scholars to examine various francophone texts through a postcolonial lens.
