Young Lee's picture

Dear Colleague,

The articles in this issue of French Politics, Culture & Society range from the affective politics of French romantic socialism to the relationship between history and memory in the comic form. The spatial and temporal conceptions of Algerian historical memory are explored, and issues of settler identity formation, anticlericalism, and racism are examined. This issue concludes with a memorial for renowned historian Allan Mitchell and book reviews.
