Abstract

This report summarises the aims, content and findings of a survey on the teaching of Francophone Africa within the French studies programs in Australian universities. The findings are based on a survey conducted between October 2016 and May 2017 with a limited sample of twenty participants. The survey aimed to inform on the extent to which Francophone Africa is taught within French studies in Australian universities, to better understand attitudes towards Francophone Africa within French studies and to identify challenges and offer suggestions for studying Francophone Africa with (European) French studies. In surveying the teaching of Francophone Africa within French studies in Australian universities, the survey informs on the background of French teachers engaged in Francophone Africa; the context of their association with and exposure to Francophone Africa, the content and form of Francophone Africa taught, universities students’ interest in Francophone Africa, and the challenges to teaching Francophone Africa in French studies in Australian universities.
