It will examine how the Affair was represented in both political discourse and cultural production, and for what purposes. It will also demonstrate how this transformative event acting as a defining moment for a generation of French political and cultural figures, including such important and diverse individuals as Léon Blum, Charles Maurras, and Marcel Proust.
