      Fr-Sa Apr 14-15 9am-6pm Francophile SIG Free Conference
      "Empire Lost: France and Its Other Worlds"
      This conference is Free and Open to the public.
      A two-day international conference, "Empire Lost: France and
      its Other Worlds" will examine the history, the tensions, and the
      future of francophonie, as both a political and an academic
      institution. Though often depicted in neo-imperialist tones,
      there are signs that la francophonie is emerging as an
      "alter-globalization" movement dedicated to preserving cultural
      diversity around the world. Does la francophonie indeed offer
      an example of how a multi-polar, -cultural, and –linguistic
      global order could take form? Can a cultural heritage born
      from the violence of history play a role in preventing further
      violence and oppression? Or does it simply repeat past
      hierarchical divisions between rich and poor nations? These
      are some of the questions that will be debated by scholars
      from literary, historical, sociological, and anthropological
      perspectives.

      Location : Stanford Campus
      Friday, April 14: Terrace Room(English Department, Building 460)
      Saturday, April 15: Levinthal Hall, Stanford Humanities Center
      www.stanford.edu/dept/fren-ital/francophonie/pages/summary.html

      Keynote Speakers:
      Assia Djebar: Professor of Francophone literature at
      New York University; member of the Académie Française;
      novelist, translator, and filmaker.
      Michel Serres: Professor of French at Stanford University;
      member of the Académie Française.

      After a bitter period of decolonization, the empire once known
      as "la plus grande France" gave way to a constellation of
      French-speaking worlds, loosely known as "la francophonie."
      Over the last decade, Francophone Studies has emerged as
      one of the most dynamic and complex fields of intellectual
      inquiry in French departments across the States. Politically
      manifest and interdisciplinary by nature, la francophonie
      transcends academia and informs intellectual debate with
      political, social, and economic realities.
      A two-day international conference, "Empire Lost: France
      and its Other Worlds" will examine the history, the tensions,
      and the future of francophonie, as both a political and an
      academic institution. Though often depicted in neo-imperialis
      tones, there are signs that la francophonie is emerging as
      an "alter-globalization" movement dedicated to preserving
      cultural diversity around the world. Does la francophonie
      indeed offer an example of how a multi-polar, -cultural, and
      -linguistic global order could take form? Can a cultural
      heritage born from the violence of history play a role in
      preventing further violence and oppression? Or does it
      simply repeat past hierarchical divisions between rich and
      poor nations? These are some of the questions that will be
      debated by scholars from literary, historical, sociological,
      and anthropological perspectives.
