Friday 8 December 2017

Andrew Hussey, professor of cultural history, features on BBC Radio 4’s Front Row (at 13:20) show in a discussion on the reaction in France to Emmanuel Macron’s call for African artefacts held in French museums to be returned to their countries of origin. He examines the practicalities of such a pledge, and what pressure it might put on Britain’s museums. Meanwhile, on CBC Radio, he delves into the enduring power of Albert Camus' L'Étranger, and profiles Emmanuel Macron for the Spanish language journal, Sin Permiso.
