French Studies for This Century

Many humanities programs -- and in particular many language programs
-- have faced challenges in recent years of budget cuts and questions
about their relevance. A new collection -- French Studies in and for
the Twenty-First Century (Liverpool University Press) -- asserts that
the field of French studies most certainly matters -- and should
continue to be nurtured at top universities.

The book's editors are Philippe Lane, attaché for higher education at
the French Embassy in London, and Michael Worton, vice provost and the
Fielden Professor of French Language and Literature at University
College London. Worton responded via e-mail to questions about the
book and the state of French studies.
