    The manifesto published in 2007 in favor of a "Littérature-monde en français" raises new and challenging questions about current trends in writing in French. Is the separation between "French" and "Francophone" literatures now outmoded? Does "littérature-monde" run with or against the grain of postcolonialism? Is the Anglophone concept of "world literature" a model or a rival for "littérature-monde"? Does "littérature-monde" offer a genuinely new vision or may it be seen as repackaging old wine in new bottles? Is it descriptive, normative or utopian? These are among the central questions addressed at this international conference. Signatories of the "littérature-monde" manifesto are among leading writers and scholars of literatures of French expression who participated in the conference.
