In recent years, the field of studies on French memories of colonialism, and particularly the Algerian War, has been profoundly renewed. A new investigative paradigm has been put forward, increasingly attentive to focusing on how memory works rather than what it is.
The seminar will be a privileged opportunity to discuss this turning point with two scholars who have profoundly innovated the field: cultural historian Itay Lotem (Westminster) and political scientist Paul Max Morin (Sciences Po Paris).
Morin is the author of Les jeunes et la guerre d’Algérie (PUF 2022) while Lotem is the author of The Memory of Colonialism in Britain and France: The Sins of Silence (Palgrave 2021).
