Interpreting the Republic: Marginalization and Belonging in by Vinay Swamy

By Vinay Swamy

reading the Republic specializes in modern French literary and cinematic works (1986-2003) that think about what it ability to belong to a country equivalent to France by means of giving voice to people who locate themselves marginalized through French society. whereas citizenship and belonging might be, and certainly are, interpreted in a different way reckoning on the socio-cultural and political context, it's the foundational universalist republican precept of egalitarianism that has remained the sacred cow of French society. one of many significant claims of this learn is that the tension of French nationwide discourse that makes an attempt to impose a undeniable homogeneity in its legit identificatory practices — all voters are French, and therefore distinction (ethnic, sexual or different) ceases to subject — is yet one of many many attainable interpretations of the proposal of the Republic. Vinay Swamy seeks to teach how such supposedly unshakeable rules, too, might be, and infrequently are, reinterpreted in novel methods via the works analyzed during this examine, which carve out niches for his or her protagonists which are in a different way foreclosed within the French nationwide house. Swamy examines the several strategies of id deployed in works starting from early 'romans beurs' by means of Azouz Begag, Farida Belghoul and Soraya Nini, and Allah megastar, the 2003 satirical novel by means of Y.B., to a couple of movies together with Gazon maudit (1995), Ma vie en rose (1997), Le Placard (2001), Chouchou (2003), all of which (re)interpret the Republic so that it will legitimize their protagonists' differently marginalized social position(s). He demonstrates how most of these works placed strain, in numerous methods, on an unacknowledged realizing of the institutional positions. Vinay Swamy underscores the various valuable issues of those works, which come with a quest to solve the often-thorny questions akin to 'who represents the Republic' or 'who is represented by way of the establishment of republican ideals,' and as a corollary, 'who or what's no longer represented?' In privileging moments of such wondering, studying the Republic underscores a few of the discursive limits of the certainty of multicultural identification formation in modern France.
