This thesis analyses the images of India in Francophone cultural production of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries across a variety of media: literature, television advertising, cinema and the visual arts. Breaking with a linear definition of time, the thesis approaches its corpus in a synchronic way, examining the recurrence of three motifs across French representations of India, namely continuity (the persistence of orientalist cliches), rupture (a reassessment of these stereotypes), and displacement (a process which problematizes any representation of alterity).
