France has long been among Europe’s paramount cultural, political, and economic powers. Yet the upheavals of the 20th century have left a deep mark on France, and have caused France to question its place and its role in contemporary Europe. This course examines France’s current standing in Europe from a socio-economic perspective. An in-depth look at how current changes in French society and business are leading France to re-examine its relationship to the wider European context. Specific cases will highlight the way that contemporary French business functions both at home and abroad. As part of the course requirements students will write a 20 page term paper in addition to presentations and examinations in this course.
This class is offered in the Spring semesters.
