Abstract: The start of the French Fifth Republic in 1958 has often been cast as the shedding of old and move into what would become 1960s modernity. The images associated with this shift include aeronautics, but also the atom. However, whereas the airplane (such as the Concorde SST) represented a tangible symbol of technological achievement, the atom in its abstract form was more difficult to mediate. This included an explanation of the work done at the Marcoules atomic research center, as well as clarifying the grounds for the eventual test nuclear explosion at Amaguir in 1960.

This paper considers the role of Paris-Match magazine in covering France’s move into the nuclear club in the early 1960s. Whereas Gabrielle Hecht’s seminal The Radiance of France considers cultural elements in direct relation to the communities affected by atomic power, this paper seeks to fill the gap in understanding what was communicated to the wider French public. It thus examines the continuity that existed between the use of imagery before the detonation of the first French atomic bomb, and since. In so doing, it seeks to test Bruno Latour’s observation that high tech projects are often assimilated in terms of their meaning(s), but not in terms of the artefacts themselves. The atom as an abstract concept appears to fit this conundrum modern societies face in coming to terms with what appears a trivial novelty from afar, yet becomes part of the background to everyday life. In the French case, the use of a mainstream magazine whose illustrations and format were akin to that adopted by Life will help define more precisely the contours of public understanding of the atom.

"A Mixed Methods Analysis of French-Muslim Reactions to la Loi 2004-228: A Law Banning Religious Symbols in French Public Schools" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 94th Annual Convention, TBA, San Diego, CA, Nov 20, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2019-04-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p255576_index.html>

Abstract: This study is a mixed methods analysis of how French-Muslims respond to a French law banning the wearing of religious symbols in French public schools. In summer 2007, 356 French-Muslims were surveyed, and 20 of those Muslims were interviewed for this analysis. The statistical analysis reveals religiosity to be a significant predictor of French-Muslims’ negative sentiment toward la Loi 2004-228, the ban on the wearing of religious symbols in French public schools. In the interviews, French-Muslims express how they perceive la Loi 2004-228 as stifling Islamic religious identity and freedom, and leading to religious and political struggles in France. The paper concludes with a discussion of how the current situation in France represents a struggle over assimilation and how the issue of and controversy over Muslim immigration has spread throughout the European Union.

Abstract: 2007 is going to be a crucial year for France. A new President is going to be elected. France has been for a long time in a double identity crisis. Internally, a process of post-modernisation with regard to decentralisation, multiculturalism and, increasng fluidity of national borders is going putting into question the hitherto conceptualisation of a unified state-nation. Externally, France is no longer the Designer of the future of the EU. On the basis of discourse analysis this paper discusses how the EU impacts the identity of the state-nation and how the political elite's hitherto conceptualization of the state-nation is put into pressure both by the society and by the EU.
