"Maps and Territories: Navigation, Globalization, and Belonging in Contemporary French Fiction." How do we make sense of and meaningfully map our place within the complicated world system of accelerated globalization? What forces make this both difficult and necessary in the context of modern-day France? How does contemporary French fiction suggest ways these forces can be overcome through new forms of belonging? “Maps and Territories” sets out to answer these questions by placing cutting-edge 21st-century French fiction into dialogue with a range of today’s most influential theorists of postmodernity and globalization.
