We are delighted to announce our next event: on Monday 08 December, Laura O’Brien from Sunderland University will present her work. Dr O'Brien is a specialist in French history whose work has shed light on republican identity in nineteenth-century France. Her book The Republican Line: Caricature and French Republican Identity, 1830-1852 is under contract with Manchester University Press.

On Monday, she will discuss 'Histories as Activism: Writing the History of the 1848 Revolution in France’.  The seminar will take place at 5:00 pm in room 035 of Northumbria University’s Lipman Building. We hope to see many of you there!
