On 18 May, Dr Caroline Campbell of the University of North Dakota gave a paper at Swansea University entitled, ‘Colonial Cultural Technologies in Metropolitan France: Ethnography and the Stability of the Republic, 1900-1930s’.
The paper concerned Dr Campbell’s current project that explores the influence of French colonial practices on the metropolitan extreme right. You can listen to the paper using the panel above.
Dr Campbell’s book, Political Belief in France, 1927-1945: Gender, Empire, and Fascism in the Croix de Feu and the Parti Social Français, was published in 2015. It is the first book on women of the French far right in the age of fascism, and contributes to the fields of French history, gender studies, the history of fascism, and the history of empire.
The paper featured in the Cardiff-Swansea French History Seminar Series, a joint intitiative run by Dr. Chris Millington (Swansea) and Prof. Kevin Passmore (Cardiff).
