Les lecteurs d’italien dans les universités françaises pendant le fascisme : des stratégies contrariées d’influence par la langue

Abstract : This contribution discusses the complex role of Italian teaching assistants in French universities in the 1920s and the 1930s. The diplomacy of Fascist Italy tried to use them as a vehicle of political influence in France. During the period, two types of recruitment coexisted. Some assistants were selected and paid by French universities and some were sent and controlled by Fascist Italy. On one hand, in Dijon or in Nancy, the universities allowed the arrival of Italian assistants because it extended their offer of language courses. On the other hand, in other cities like in Grenoble, the preferred option was to recruit the teachers directly on a local basis to prevent all political interference. The relationship between French professors of Italian language and Italian teaching assistants is well documented in the reports available in the archive of the ministry of foreign affairs in Rome, which have been used as an input for this article.
