The French Intifada: the long war between France and its Arabs

Andrew Hussey, professor of cultural history and director of the Centre for Postcolonial Studies, will give his inaugural lecture in the Beveridge Hall on Thursday 2 February. His book The French Intifada, published in 2014, was a cultural history of France and its former colonies in North Africa, explicitly attempting to understand present tensions and challenges in both territories. It has been overtaken by recent events in France, most notably the terrorist attacks of 2015 and 2016. In his lecture, Professor Hussey will revisit the book’s original research and arguments, and ask what if anything has changed, and what this might tell us about the fast-changing political landscape in France. Free admittance but please register at this link. 

The lecture will begin at 18:00, and will be followed by a drinks reception starting at 19:00.
