Perhaps no world city has so many resonances, on so many levels, as Paris. Cafe society, demi-monde, the intellectual life, film-makers and writers...

Cafe society, demi-monde, the intellectual life, film-makers and writers...

Paris has fragmented socially, sexually, intellectually and linguistically into many fields. Parisian Fields sets out to investigate some of these.The writers investigate how Paris has been both seen and shaped by tourist guides- how its topography has been represented and allegorized by film-makers like Godard, Clair, Vigo and Renoir- how the city has responded to new Parisians – for example Afro-American musicians and dancers such as Josephine Baker – and to previously marginalized Parisians – gays and women.Literary analysis, film, social and gender theory, perspectives on urbanism- here are many provocative and innovative views of the open field of Paris, which will appeal to anyone interested in French cultural and literary studies – or just in the City of Light herself.With essays by Roger Clark, Nicholas Hewitt, Jon Kear, Tom Conley, Michael Sheringham, Alex Hughes, Adrian Rifkin, Belinda Jack, Verena Andermatt Conley and Marc Augé.
