The question of the Americanization of France is an old one, most often addressed through studies of diplomacy, economics, and politics. This conference will address the issue from a fresh angle, looking at it through the prism of the arts with a particular focus on popular music. The period we will cover runs from the second industrial revolution through the digital era of the twenty-first century.
