Order through Language: Francophony between Nation State, Empire, and International Politics, 1860–1960

Francophonie zwischen Nationalstaat, Imperium und internationaler Politik, 1860–1960

Francophony became a political project in the last third of the 19th century, one that continued to operate until decolonization. The book examines the actors, ideas, and practices of language and language politics as a seismograph of French self-consciousness and as an instrument for maintaining politico-cultural order. This study focuses on the complex interplay between the French nation state, its empire, and international politics.
