Entre les murs / Kiffe Kiffe Demain

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by DavidDogue, Dec 3, 2019.

  1. Bonjour !

    After many attempts to obtain resources from AQA, I am hoping to find somebody that has good resources and example essays both on the film and the book. As well as creating my own, I am hoping to show students good models of essays to work through.

    Merci à tous!

    The author analyses the individual world view of a teenage girl for the purpose of defining the difference between the ethnical and national pictures of the world. The picture of the world forms an informative-emotional space in which an individual exists. The ethnical picture of the world correlates with the mentality of an ethnos, ethnical spirituality based on the objective commonness of origin from common ancestors. In a multicultural state, the national picture of the world is defined as homogeneity of moral values and behavioural stereotypes of the state's citizens regardless of their ethnical background. The novel by F. Guene "Kiffe-kiffe demain" is a private diary of a French girl whose parents are emigrants from North Africa. The book's text allows us to deduce how in the individual picture of the heroine two cultural systems correlate - ethnical (principles and values that her parents follow) and national (cultural values of modern France). The categories and implications in which national and ethnical are in a definite cultural distance (concepts of family, religion, the role of a woman in society) are of a special interest. The situations in which the ethnical component of the emotional-cultural space plays a leading role are determined. Quite often, the heroine uses two cultural-linguistic codes simultaneously: French and ethnical. To perform the set tasks, the connotation of sentences in which the heroine expresses her opinion are analysed, and it is defined which cultural code is dominating. The context of the use of linguistic units with a cultural component of meaning, in which ethnical and national world view systems are represented, is studied in the article. A special focus is made on cultural rhemes included in comparative constructions, as well as on situations of opposition or conflict of ethnical and national. Any community is defined by the unity of cultural values and saves their integrity by means of homogeneity of behavioural stereotypes. The heroine's aspiration to change her life, not to be like her neighbours means that children of migrants do not belong to their ethnos. Functioning of national values in the mentality of a new generation of emigrants determines the difference between the new generation and the elder (first) generation of emigrants for whom national values do not have any personal meaning. This difference causes the new generation of emigrants to form a new sub-ethnos (bear) in the territory of a European state, and the elder generation saves their distinctive character and can hardly integrate in the European cultural space.
