The Occultation of Regionalism in French History

(p.3) 1 The Occultation of Regionalism in French History
The Regionalist Movement in France 1890-1914


Oxford University Press

This book provides the conceptual framework for a rediscovery of regionalism in France. The occultation of regionalism persists today despite its reappearance in some academic fields. Where regionalism has reemerged as a subject worthy of study, two developments in particular have helped to shed light on it. The revival of ethnology in the late 1970s had a strong influence, inclining contemporary students of folklore to take greater account of their predecessors in the Belle Époque. The second development that has drawn new attention to Belle Époque regionalism has been the success of cultural history, and in particular one of its central paradigms, the ‘construction of identity’. This book looks at the occultation of regionalism in French history and the history of the French political thought, the political ideas of Jean Charles-Brun and the role of Fédération Régionaliste Française (FRF) which he founded in 1900, the link between regionalism and the right, and the association between regionalist movement and political eclecticism.

Keywords:   political thought, political eclecticism, ethnology, cultural history, construction of identity
