French Journals in Tunis during World War Il
In the embattled intellectualscape of colonial Tunis, French journals were among the few remaining signs of culture – what culture ? Despite economic hardship, rampant censorship, they maintained an astonishing vitality echoing only muffled sounds of the war. Four titles (La Revue Tunisienne ; Ibla ; La Kahéna ; Afrique Littéraire) are brought here under scrutiny, in an attempt to define their respective profiles (differences, links and place on the map of colonial ideology) amidst the general production of the period.
