Familiarizing the "jeune filles"
Presiding Officer:
Virginie Pouzet-Duzer, Pomona College

In 1913, several sociological studies of the concept of youth were published in France, turning the unfamiliar and possibly dangerous demi-vierges from the turn of the century into well-defined categories. The goal of this panel is to resituate the blossoming of the jeunes filles in the French literature, art and culture of the years 1890-1920.
