The international team of contributors and consultants have provided over 700 entries offering wide-ranging coverage and crossing the traditional boundaries between disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. French culture is defined in its broadest sense and areas covered include: economy; education; film; food and wine; gender and sexuality; intellectual life; language and identity; literature; media; music; performing arts; politics; religion; society; and visual arts. Entries range from shorter, factual contributions to longer overview essays, and provide a context for anyone studying French, readers with an interest in critical theory and anyone pursuing comparative studies in European culture. To assist readers with their research a classified contents list identifies relevant entries within a particular field. The articles are extensively cross-referenced to provide links between subjects and conclude with annotated suggestions for further reading.
