Inaugural Lecture by Professor Andrew Hussey, Professor of Cultural History at the School of Advanced Study



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

Thursday 2 February 2017
At 6pm in the Beveridge Hall
Senate House
Malet Street

Professor Hussey’s 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.
