Event Description

Futures of French Roundtable

If we could today—without the burden or benefit of precedent, tradition, or institutional inertia—invent a field called ‘French and Francophone Studies,’ what would it look like?
– Laurent Dubois & Achille Mbembe

Intersectional Escape from the Sexagon: Arabs, Muslims, and Sexual Demonization in France   

Mehammed Mack, assistant professor of French Studies at Smith College, earned his doctorate in French and comparative literature from Columbia University, where he completed a dissertation titled "Immigration and Sexual Citizenship: Gender, Sexuality, and Ethnicity in Contemporary France." His first book, Sexagon: Muslims, France, and the Sexualization of National Culture, was released from Fordham University Press in January 2017. His research focuses on contemporary immigration to France, gender and sexuality, diversity in the banlieues, and the relation between culture and politics.

Her forthcoming book, Decolonial Citizenship: Black Women’s Resistance in the Francophone World, examines black women’s articulations of citizenship through their work in anticolonial movements in Francophone Africa and the Antilles.
