Description

This monograph seeks to examine a specifically French (and, by extension, Irish) reaction to the phenomenon of 'globalization', a reaction that is tinged with resistance to both the language and conceptions inherent in the term. This book suggests an alternative project of globalization in which all differences of culture, language and ideology, instead of being subsumed into a homogenous Anglophone whole, are able to cohabit in terms of what Julia Kristeva called "hospitality." Written in both French and English, the first section deals with various interpretations of globalization, while the second part examines certain aspects of the French approach to globalization. It is also available in French and English.
