Mae France's Colonial Legacies yn cynnig ymyrraeth amserol yn y dadleuon ynghylch yr ymerodraeth Ffrengig a’i lle yn y genedl gyfoes, gan dynnu ar arbenigedd ymchwilwyr sy’n gweithio ym meysydd gwleidyddiaeth, y cyfryngau, astudiaethau diwylliannol, llenyddiaeth a ffilm. Cynigir, gyda hynny, ddarlun eang o goffadwriaeth yr ymerodraeth yn y wlad gyfoes.


"In a variety of spheres--political, legal, cultural, and historiographic--debates regarding memories of empire have, over the past decade, acquired a genuine urgency in France and in the wider French-speaking world. This volume provides a useful set of essays that explore the legacies of colonialism in a wide range of locations and in a number of very difference arenas. The contributors include established scholars and some of the most important early-career researchers active in this field. The collection as whole is a significant contribution to new work in Francophone postcolonial studies."--Charles Forsdick, University of Liverpool
