Interpreting the Republic
Interpreting the Republic focuses on contemporary French literary and cinematic works (1986-2003) to reflect on what it means to belong to a nation such as France. Vinay Swamy demonstrates how supposedly unshakeable principles based on French republican ideals, can be, and often are, (re)interpreted in novel ways by the works analyzed in this study, which carve out niches for their protagonists that are otherwise foreclosed in the French national space.
