LUP publishes a wide range of cutting-edge research in Francophone studies. The below titles may be of particular interest to SFPS members.

New in Francophone Postcolonial StudiesFrench Decadence in a Global Context

Francophone Postcolonial Studies publishes research that will help to set new research agendas across the entire field.

French Decadence in a Global Context edited by Julia Hartley, Wanrug Suwanwattana, and Jennifer Yee is the latest book in the series. The heyday of French Decadence in the fin-de-siècle period is contemporary with the expansion of France’s modern colonial empire. This study surveys some of the many different and often contradictory intersections between the two phenomena, from exoticism to anxieties about cultural purity, from colonial discourse to anarchist anticolonialism.
