    This thesis examines the construction of group identities in French colonial discourse of the 1920s and 1930s through readings of literary texts with colonial themes, and through studies of archival data pertaining to the 1931 Exposition Coloniale Internationale and the colonial section of the 1937 World's Fair, both held in Paris.
