dc.description.abstract Tissage Du Métissage: Construction Et Création Des Personnages Et Textes Métisses Dans La Littérature Contemporaine Francophone This dissertation project explores the concept of Métissage in contemporary French literature (métissage is a French term that contains all the following English meanings: diversity, hybridity, mixed-race, multiracialism, multiculturalism). Over the past 20 years racial diversity has been at the center of many debates and continues to raise questions on the social, political, cultural, artistic and literary scenes. Scholars agree on the erroneous nature of the term miscegenation which is based on the axiom presupposing the existence of difference races within the human species, yet one is forced to recognize métissage as a concrete cultural and social phenomenon as well as a very real way to define a category of individuals in today's French society. In raising the contemporary issues of race, immigration and identity, the goal of my dissertation is to draw attention to a young generation of authors who posit a new way of thinking about métissage and who are part of a movement that will contribute to changing the French literary scene. en_US
