FINAL ESSAY INSTRUCTIONS

With regards to our readings and film screenings during the semester, and building on notions such as difference, colonization and assimilation, show how the 2005 riots in the French banlieues are the consequence of injustice, discrimination and segregation, which result in the African Diaspora in France standing out both as a challenge to Frenchness and as rioters for justice. Please use at least 2 of the readings discussed in class, and feel free to bring movies and/or outside sources to your discussion.
