NEH Summer Seminar for Secondary School Teachers

Citizenship and Culture: French Identity in Crisis

Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, June 27 – July 29, 2005

Michael Kline and Nancy Mellerski, Co-Directors

This seminar invites secondary school teachers to explore the construction
of Republican identity in France and to study challenges to the ideal,
foundational French Republic since the Revolution of 1789.  
Representations of the Republic in art, theater, film and essay will
demonstrate how the ownership of each has evolved over time as the master
narrative of French republicanism and nationhood unfolds.  French
identity, as a product of the centralizing heritage of Jacobinism, will be
examined as it undergoes the pressures of ethnic and regional voices that
are increasingly demanding of recognition and autonomy. Two case studies,
that of regional identities and languages and debates on the European
Charter on Regional and Minority Languages as well as the “Headscarf
Affair,” the most important drama in contemporary France, will serve to
investigate the challenges to French republicanism.

Participants receive a stipend of $3600.
