Formatted abstract
In this article, we set out to contextualise and analyse the current situation of French Studies in Australia through a brief consideration of both the history of the Australian Journal of French Studies, the discipline itself in the Australian context, and the research context within which that discipline currently finds itself. We suggest that whilst the qualifier "Australian" in the title of AJFS is, in important respects, not at all important, it can be maintained that this journal and the discipline of French Studies as it has played out in Australia nonetheless display an unmistakably Australian characteristic, namely larrikinism. This characteristic, we suggest, should leave the discipline of French Studies in an advantageous position in the current research environment in Australia. The reality, however, is not quite so and the question thus becomes how to rearticulate the importance of this discipline to the Australian context.
