Navigating “D’Origine” with Dr. Gemma King
The French would love for you to believe they’re all descended from the Gauls, and as a society have fairly assimilationist views of what makes someone French. Dr. Gemma King is here to help shed some light on a term that might appear to be purely descriptive of a multiplicity of identities within the tapestry of Frenchness but actually has some built-in connotations of purity and what it means to be truly French: d’origine.
