My honors project involves the investigation of societal norms within the traditional, conservative community in France and the reasons behind them. My project explores the types of cultural and societal norms there may exist about the art of clothing, eating, and behaving. I also explain the reasons behind those expectations and why the French conservative culture focuses on certain societal rules. Lastly, I investigate the application of societal influences to a sense of national pride and collective unity in France. I incorporate literary evidence, both fictional and nonfictional, as well as anthropological studies on France to support my argument.
