Semester 1, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Bronwyn Winter

Description

In the second half of the twentieth century, French society underwent unprecedented changes, which continue to inform political debate in the third millennium. This unit of study examines the nature of those changes and explores their impact on those caught up in them and on contemporary debates.
