IJFS special issue: Progress, change and development: Francophone perspectives

The first issue of the year (19/1) of the International Journal of Francophone Studies, edited by Margaret Majumdar and Fabienne Chamelot, addresses Francophone perspectives on Progress, change and development. “While the perspectives underlying these texts are very different, what unites the subject matter is the underlying preoccupation with history as progress. While some accept the ideals of modernity, freedom and economic, social, political amelioration and focus their critique on the deficiencies of their implementation to date, others channel their work more to unpicking the unintended effects of historical change, challenging received wisdom to date and the analysing the cultural processes and products through which many of the ensuing contradictions are articulated.” Here is the table of content.
