Une archive pour l’histoire du français langue seconde : le Congrès pour l’extension et la culture de la langue française (1905-1913)

Abstract : We examine the material and discursive characteristics of the Congress for the extension and culture of the French language’s three sessions’ proceedings (Belgium, 1905-1913). It became clear at the end of the 19th and at the beginning of the 20th century, a unique time period in the context of the “language wars”, that French was starting to lose its influence worldwide, thus provoking reflections upon the means to maintain it; while francophony first appeared as a relevant notion in language politics. The situation in Belgium raises specific issues regarding the status of dialects and regional varieties for French language teaching.
