Blog of Interest: Lawyers, Guns & Money

Erica Johnson Edwards's picture

Dear Subscribers,

Lawyers, Guns & Money is a blog that will appeal to those interested in French colonial history.  In 2004, David Watkins, Rob Farley, and Scott Lemieux founded the blog, and it now has over a dozen authors.  While the blog is more broadly focused on politics and culture, network member and Associate Professor at Southwestern University Melissa Byrnes provides Francophone content for the blog.  Her posts relate the modern to history, with topics ranging from protests in Algeria to European identity and empire in the World Cup.  With nearly three dozen posts since January 2017, Byrnes has added a more global context to the blog, and she is sure to have you coming back for more in the future.
