French Area Studies

When taking France as a subject, it opens the door to such diverse fields of research as French society, philosophy, literature, art and history. Let us look at some of the research topics of past students. Within society: immigration, secularity, energy policy, corporate culture, etc. Within philosophy: Lacan, Derrida, Levinas, Lyotard, etc. Within literature: Hugo, Proust, Surrealism, Kundera, etc. Within art: Japonisme, dance, music, films, and so on. Within history: medieval and modern history, historical gender roles, etc. Furthermore, we can consider France as a starting point into expanding our framework to the European Union and the wider French-speaking world (Maghreb, Sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean ).

Taking France as the field of research, we combine a multidimensional approach and a pluralistic perspective with the solid acquisition of the French language. We welcome all those who are interested in the world that can be discovered beyond such efforts.
