France underwent a rapid series of changes during the post-war period as it lived through the twin dramas of modernisation and decolonisation. This course explores how cultural production during the period responds to, captures and portrays the changes affecting the country, including emergence of new technologies, the rise of mass consumerism, urban development, and the challenge to traditional social structures. A range of material will be studied, including films, literature, and photography and philosophical writing.
